    How Do i Know ?

    Hi Guys..... Just a quick Q

    How do i know if i have bootmii or boot2 installed ?

    If i have understod it correctly i should have it installed as i followed http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html Guide.

    And again if i understand correctly i would need these/this installed if ever i bricked my Wii, These/this would help me recover it ?

    It may be a stupid/nOOb question so please be gentle

    Cheers

    When you run the hackmii installer it will tell you.

    If you look at video around minute 1:30 you can see where it says it can only be installed as IOS. So if you can install bootmii as boot2 it will also tell you.

    Thanks for the super fast reply ....

    Not to sound Fick ..... would i have been able to carry out the rest of the "tut" with out installing it ..... cos i am totaly lost now. Would it be safe to try and install it again to be on the safe side ? ( do i install it using "hackmii ?)

    Its all getting a little confusing

    If you can install as boot2 I would go ahead and do it but if you can only install it as an IOS you can proceed with tutorial but don't go skipping other steps.

    Part 1 of our softmod tutorial deals with hackmii and installing bootmii is a part of that process. It should be quite clear when you run the installer as it will come up with a list of stuff that can be installed. If you bought your Wii this year then you have very little chance of installing boot2.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    probably should have pointed out that i have successfully completed the tutorial

    I seem to read that its highly recommended to have bootmii installed from the off ... more like a safty net, if anything should go wrong

    just wanting to be safe not sorry

    Thanks
