    BOOT2 success! Thanks!

    Just wanted to say thanks again to all on the board that help. Went from having a bricked Wii from a system 4.2 update, to a successfully hacked wii with boot2 backup installed. Wii Hacks is awesome!

    awesome!! how'd you do it? i haven't softmodded my wii yet but seriously thinking of doing it but when i found out you could "brick" it useless i kinda hesitated...i read about this bootmii and boot2 thing and they said it would help protect against bricking. this is my daughter's wii were are talking about that we just bought her for her birthday and if i screw it up it's not just my daughter i got to deal with, my wife would rip me a new one!! ahaha...but anyway they say that it couldn't install boot2 on systems 4.0 and up that you have to use preloader instead..is there something different you did??

    Bootmii can be installed on wiis which have vulnerable boot1. This means wii purchases before Mid 2008. Any Wii after can not install it as boot2, only an IOS. Though once you follow the tutorials here correctly and don't mess around with your IOSs, then you shouldn't brick.
