    Bootmii installation

    I have Wii with following configuration.

    Version 4.1 U
    Moded chip (does not know about the brand)
    CIOS Rev 14
    Homebrew Channel
    SD Card 8GB


    I want to install BootMii to avoid future problems in case of brick.
    I know it can be installed as IOS but game cure controller is required, I do not have it so I would prefer to install as Boot 2.

    What I need to do to install Boot Mii as Boot 2 as Homebrew Channel is already installed previously.

    Just download the link from my signature.

    Unzip files

    rename boot.elf to boot.dol

    put on sd card so it is in sd:\apps\bootmii\

    Put SD card in wii

    Go to HBC

    Find Bootmii

    When it loads (takes it a moment to get past the piracy screen) go to bootmii (you have the option of installing DVDX, HBC and Bootmii)

    Follow the on screen instructions to install as boot2

    Also the installer in my signature has HBC 1.0.4 incase you wanted to install that

    I was in the middle of responding when i was called in to a meeting at work. What you need to do since you dont have a gamecube controller is use the buttons on your wii. The power button is enter and the reset button moves you around the interface. You want to move to the gears icon and press power then you will see an icon of a nand chip with an arrow point to an sd card hit power on that icon and it will bring you to the savemii screen press power again and it will make a nand backup to your sd card.

    You've confused me sociallyantisocial.
    I understood the following
    You could only get Boot2 on pre 2008 Wii's. After that it was bootmii IOS.
    As an IOS it can only be loaded from the HBC, and then you have to use it with a GC controller. The power and reset button feature does not work on IOS.
    With 4.1 you cannot use boot2, no starfall.
    You can use Starpatch, but no nand backup.

    I'd appreciate it if you could put me right.

    Did not mean to confuse you but you seem a little confused.

    BootMii can be installed on 4.1 system menu.

    It cannot be installed on Systems manufactured around Oct 2008 and up because of the boot1 version 2.4.

    With 4.1 you cannot use starfall but you can use startpatch and preloader 0.29

    In this post the original poster did not say what year the wii was made. Since it has a mod chip of some sort I am assuming it is a pre October 2008.

    And yes the IOS version of Bootmii is really useless. I do not see the point in it unless there is something i am missing.

    I think the hackmii guys put it in for future use. Just because it's useless right now doesn't mean they won't get around it in future.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
