    Bootmii as an IOS

    So I needed to add Bootmii to my cousin's Wii. Well I can only install as an IOS and I want brick protection on the Wii. So is there any way to restore a Nand backup from another Wii onto that one or can I make one with bootmii as an IOS.
    Thanks to Peire to making the awesome sig and avatar!

    no you cannot use another wii nand. Yes, bootmii installed as ios will still allow you to make a nand backup.

    To further elaborate on skell's answer, if you brick your wii with bootmii as an IOS you will have to send it off to a nand programmer to get it fixed (providing you have made a nand backup). Priiloader is definitely recommended as well, so if you dont have it installed now is the time.

    Oh really, so what's the difference? And instead of making a new thread, if I'm going to install Bootmii I have a micro sd with a adapter on the compatibility list would I check for the adapter or the micro sd?


    EDIT CFG works without going into homebrew. And would Priiloader be able to restore a nand backup.

    As boot2 you boot directly into it. As an IOS its basically just a program that requires some other way to boot. (Hope that made sense). With Priiloader you can boot directly into Homebrew. Also Priiloader can block all updates from the big N as well as a bunch of other stuff. Read up on it here: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...ates-more.html

    EDIT: As far as your sd card look at the card itself.

    So if u brick with bootmii as an IOS, and priiloader installed. You can get to homebrew with priiloader, then launch bootmii, from there to restore your nand.

    Technically restoring your NANd with bootmii/ios might be possible but its a really, really, really bad idea. Dont do it.

    Priiloader lets you boot to homebrew channel, among other things. Assuming you havent messed something up that prevents priiloader from starting, there are many options that are available to you if you have access to the homebrew channel. So yes, there are ways you can recover from bricks using prii. Check out the bricked forum if you want to find some real-world examples.
