    NAND backup and LU64+

    Hi there. I'm a newbie who's trying to learn a thing or two about wii hacking before installing any hack app.
    I own one of those newer Wiis (LU64+) and I suppose I won't be able to install BootMii as boot2, but only as an IOS. And as I far I know, backing up my NAND with BootMii will be useless 'cause restoring your NAND is not recommended in this particular case.

    Here's my question: is there any tool (app) that could be used as a way to "prevent" future bricks in the newer Wiis? I understand that being able to restore your NAND is very helpful when it comes to fixing bricks. Is there a similar alternative in the newer Wiis?

    Thanks a lot.

    I would say if you install preloader you will be fine. Preloader still lets you get in to the home brew channel most of the time on bricks. And the people on this forum can generally get you unbricked if you can access the HBC

    I agree with sociallyantisocial, preloader is good. StarPatch on later Wii's is also good, replaces the Starfall of earlier Wii's.

    Is it possible to run/install the Homebrew Channel and other apps without having BootMii installed? I mean, does BootMii have any funcionality for those newer Wiis? I thought that brick protection was the main function of BootMii...but since newer Wiis do not take advantage of such funcionality, I'm not sure why I should install it at all.

    BootMii for Users:

    BootMii is a piece of software that can be installed as an IOS or inserted into the boot process. As an IOS, it provides a fast way to back up your Wii's internal NAND flash memory, and will eventually form the basis of a new generation of homebrew applications for the Wii. Inserted into the boot process, BootMii provides you with a "safety net" -- you can back up your entire Wii to SD in under three minutes! If you were to brick your Wii, BootMii would still run and let you restore your backup from SD, quickly and painlessly. BootMii also allows you to directly boot the Homebrew channel or other homebrew from SD, bypassing the "warning screen" and the rest of the menu.
    it says, the basis of new homebrew apps... no idea what they mean... seems to me like "ok, do it and we may find something to do with it".
