    yes make sure you save the nand and keys from your sd card and ALSO the bootmii folder thats on the root of your sd with armboot,bootmii and ppcboot.elf inside it .......as long as you have that folder on your sd card your wii will boot into bootmii......so you only need it on your sd card when you want to make a nand back or (if full brick nand restore)

    Basically, when your wii boots, it first boots boot0, then boot1 and then boot2 and then the system menu. By installing bootmii, you replaced boot2 with bootmii. So it will boot before your system menu will, so if you brick your wii, you can ust use your back-up. Be carefull however, upgrading your wii will require bootmii to be reinstalled!

    ok, that's good, thanks.
    i keep bootmii folder in another folder on my sd card so it won't boot, and move it back when i need it.
