    Bootmii does not support the wiimote
    Press Power, Power, Power, Reset, Reset (or use gc-controller)
    Power = Right, Eject = Left, Reset = Select
    Read the guide maybe?

    I'm sorry, was stuck thinking I had to do the backup first. Using the right right right select select does not do anything though.

    Silly question but are you using the buttons on the face of the Wii or are you trying to use the remote? If it doesn't work for you then you might have to get a GC controller.

    I was trying to use the remote, am I supposed to use the buttons on the face of the Wii?

    YES! Just as the guide says.

    Bootmii does not support the wiimote
    Press Power, Power, Power, Reset, Reset (or use gc-controller)
    Power = Right, Eject = Left, Reset = Select

    Hmmm, well, the checksums are to ensure the integrity of the downloaded files and the guide does state that this is important. I am hesitant to advise you to continue. The reason is that installation of corrupt wad files can cause bricking problems. Most of those types of bricks can be resolved, but I would just as soon not lead you into more problems.

    Unless you hear otherwise from mauifrog, I suggest you borrow a PC laptop to complete the softmod. Another alternative is to run Bootcamp on your Mac and that should allow all the PC OS programs to run. If money is an issue that prevents purchase of Bootcamp, I believe there is a free program for the Mac that is like Bootcamp-sorry I don't recall the name.

    EDIT: Sorry, my oversight. You can verify MD5 checksums on a Mac and have been able to do so for quite some time now. I recall the old way was a command from the Terminal and there was also a utility program called MD5. Can you please do a Google search as I'm sure there is an easier way for the Mac by now.

    I did the power, power, power, reset, reset and am now stuck at a blank BootMii backup screen with a green border. The SD card does not have all three of the files on it to backup to my PC, do I need to hit power an extra time or?

    Slow down and read the tutorial for comprehension. You ARE doing the backup step. Look at the Bootmii icons that refer to backing up from the Wii to the SD card.

    The term Wiimote refers to the Wii remote-lack of support means it won't work in Bootmii. If using the console buttons does not work, then, as directed in the tutorial, you will need to use a GameCube controller. If you do not have one, buy or borrow one.

    If pressing the power and reset buttons moves the cursor-LOOK at the screen the commands are not magical in and of themselves-you are moving the cursor to the icon that shows data being backed up from the Wii TO the SD card. Look at the screen, when the cursor is on the correct icon, SELECT it.

    If the Bootmii Backup is not starting as indicated by a series of dots across the screen and green boxes filling up the blank area, then check to see that you have an SD card enough space-a NAND backup may take up to about 540MB. If you have enough space, re-try the BootMii NAND backup step again.
