I used messies guide about a while ago and would now like to create a nand backup however I cannot find out how to launch bootmii?? I use wiiflow and a usb hdd, when I go to homebrew and select the home button and then load bootmii it goes to a black screen and I lose sync with the remote however no bootmii menu loads? when i extract the bootmii folder to an sd card and restart my wii I get the same thing a black screen? orignially when I loaded it i had the bootmii menu how can I get bootmii back??
Go to http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html , download the RAR file and perform steps #1 a) b) and c) (just don't install HBC).
By loading boot.elf, you'll load Hackmii which will let you install bootmii.
system menu 4.2
thanks but that was for up to 4.1 I am currently on 4.2 i used this guide:
http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...tem-menus.html for 4.2 however I cannot find out how to load bottmii, when I attempted to re-install it via hackmii I got a -1 error??
??? help please ??? I found a post that indicated the sd card needed to be less than 2gb I was using a 4gd is this why??

Reason: found a post is this still accurate (sd)
First of all the bootmi folder needs to be in the root of the sd card and it has 3 files in the folder. Bootmi can be initiated from pressing the home button on the homebrew channel if it is installed as an ios, or it will start when the wii starts if it installed as boot2. It can only be as an ios or as boot2 not both.
If you were able to access it before the n the sd card you used should have worked fine, make sure nothing is plugged into the wii and after bootmi start, plug in a gamecube controller. Make sure the sd card is formatted as fat32.
will not load??
I am not sure what I am doing wrong I am trying to get bootmii to load so i can get a NAND dump / (backup) however I cannot get bootmill to load. I placed the folder bootmii in the root directory of the SD card the folder contains the armboot.bin; bootmii.ini; and ppcboot.elf when I place the card in the SD slot nothing loads? Am I doing this correctly? what folder / files do I need??
Did you install bootmii as boot2 or as an IOS?
I cannot remember 100% for sure but i am pretty sure as boot2, when I go to homeberw and select load bootmii it is a "black screen", when I put in the SD card I cannot get it to load do I have all the right files on the SD card I thought so? (See above post for files used)thanks
If it is boot2, it will come up when you restart your wii and should not be there as an option on the homebrew channel.
boot2 or ios
is there any way to confirm? if it is ios how come when I go to the homebrew channel select home then load bootmii it does not load??
? so if it show up on the homebrew menu does that confrim an ios load? also does it matter if the homebrew channel is loading from my usb?? if so what files to I need to reload to the SD to dupm the nand...
