Day 2: I formatted SD and need some pointers
I've got to say this forum is lively, dedicated and informational. I am impressed with the guides and the general knowledge you people have. With that said, I should advise, this is only my second day of wii hacking/modding. Please bear with me.
I soft modded my 4.3u Wii via the guide with the Mario frog on the top. :) Everything went well it seems, as I followed every step of the guide and everything that it said would happen - did. Sweet!
BUT, today I thought "okay I did it, lets try to load a back up". I formatted my SD card and put the backup on it. But bootmi (I figured I should check in there for how to load the backup) bootmii however wouldn't load. Some reading lead me to find out that the bootmii files needed to be on the SD card for it to work. I put those on and it worked! But, I don't know how to load a back up from there or anywhere.
I had formatted my SD like I said. I have a feeling that I needed to NOT do that after I finished the soft modding process.
With that said. Should I have specific files on my SD to try to load a back up? If so, which ones?
Also, based on what I said I want to do, could you guys maybe point me in the direction of threads I may be missing? Eventually I'd like have an external - but right now I want to stick to the basics.
