    NOT new but newbie question

    i have a working wii but one thing i did not do is make a backup copy of nand and wanting to do that before i try triiforce . I follow this tutorial long time ago

    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...tem-menus.html

    and it hacked my 4.2 u fine and works but i do not have bootmii. I want to install that to make a backup of nand and also use it incase something happens.

    I have installed this on other systems 4.1 and below but never 4.2. Can someone shed some light on how to get it working and i tried just putting bootmii folder in the root of sd card .NO go on that one.

    thanks in advanced and yes i did try a search and no go there either

    use the hackmii installer to add bootmii back on it.

    Sure i do not have a problem donating. Would you happen to know how to put bootmii on 4.2 wii ? I know the 4.1 wii and below using the tuts here put it on automatic and kept it on but the 4.2 instructions you take it off and put it back on ... I just want to get the bootmii on the wii .

    It should be the same way. Get yourself a HackMii installer, bomb your wii in one of the various ways (smash stack, bannerBomb, etc) and once it loads, you should be given the options to install homebrew channel, dvdx and bootmii.

    You need to run a program like bannerbomb to get it to load.

    Here is a link to bannerbomb: Bannerbomb - WiiBrew

    Follow the steps there for whichever system menu version you are using.

    Please note: I did not use bannerbomb to hack my wii. It would not run for me so I had to use Smash Stack, but this requires a retail Smash Bros Brawl disc to work (never tried with a burnt/ISO as I own SSBB)

    Did you get the prompt to "load boot.dol/.elf" from the Channels > SD card menu? I wasn't able the get the prompt that's why I had to use smash stack. Are you freezing after the prompt?

    man finally got it ...odd way to do it but worked. I look at original tutorial i did and found it had a boot.dol and private folder. I put them on and boot the wii and then went to the sd card . It then went right into it and i installed it as boot2 and then i reset wii and hit reset once and allowed me into bootmii. Geez what a mess lol ....

    usually bannerbomb works for me but i guess 4.2 systems it does not like.
