    Exclamation installing bootmii and a couple of other questions

    hi, i've followed a tuturial in youtube ( yeah i know i shouldn't, but oh well, i didn't know about this forum ).

    in the tuturial, what i can understand is that I downgraded the firmware to IOS 35 so that I could install backup loader ( doens't load backups by the way ).

    what i'm asking is.. is it possible to install bootmii after doing this? is it possible to revert the things that i've done ? what is the difference between IOS and cIOS ? and what is the best way to play backups?

    sorry if this are a lot of questions, but i need them to be answered so i can decide what to do, I am a lot afraid of briking my wii :S and I dont know if by installing somethings if i can revert or install others withouth a problem

    thanks guys, this would help me a lot

    Yes it is possible to install bootmii on any firmware because it replaces the boot2 (your wii had to be bought before around november 2008. because after that nintendo patched it you can go thank them for that). Yes it is possible to revert back to what ever firmware you were at there are safe firmware updaters just look around the forms.

    a cIOS is a customIOS and an IOS is a internal oporating system (i think i read that on hackmii.org)

    cIOS is the ONLY way to play backups you need the trucha bug though and you can get it on any firmware you just need to look up dogeggs "how to get cIOS's on ANY WII!"

    Hope i answered them all

    PM me if you have anymore or post back here

    This time i made sure....

    thanks for the answers. If I may, I have yet another questions xD

    If I install other cIOS, will I need to update in some way my backup loader and my homebrew channel? will it interfere with something? and how do I know wich version os cIOS am I using? ( I think I already have a cIOS from the tuturial I followed in youtube )

    After soft hacking my wii, can I go without a problem to the vote channel, internet channel and other nintendo online related channels?

    thanks again
