    No, you are so not listening to me. You use BootMii to create the NAND backup, it will save to your SD card. You then take key.bin and nand.bin and put those in a safe place as those are for your Wii backup [after you run the NAND backup process]. You also take out the bootmii folder off your SD so bootmii doesn't load up everytime you start your Wii.

    Guide Specifics 4.2 +

    I am on 4.2u on my Wii.
    It did install and recognize Bootmii. (step A3)
    I then did the backup as described which I copied on hard drive which will prevent bricking later.
    Hope this helps
    *******************************
    PART A: The astonishing installation of HBC: First steps into modding

    In this part we will install HBC, which is used to runn apps from the system menu, using the bannerbomb exploit. Along the way, DVDx will be installed, this allows the lens to recognise burned DVDs (not play backups, just see they are there). In the end we will install Bootmii, which is a very useful app as we will see next.

    A1)GET THIS and unrar the contents in the root of your SD card. In the root of the SD card whould be:
    root:\apps
    root:\private
    root:\wad
    IOS38-64-v3610.wad
    boot.elf

    A2)Run to your wii, place the card in the SD slot and navigate to the SD card icon, bottom left, writes SD and has the same shape, can't really miss it. Once you did this, a warning screen about scams should appear, press ok, screen will go black. A disclaimer shall appear, press one to continue.

    A3)Now three lines should appear: Homebrew channel, which can be isntalled, DVDx, also can be installed, Bootmii, which possibly will give you an error. Install all three of them and then exit.

    Warning: Bootmii at most cases will give you an error, so it cannot be installed as a boot2. For most of you will be isntalled as an ios. That is fine.
    A4)After that you are ready, you have installed all of the above! now an app can be placed in the apps folder in your SD card and be run by HBC! This has a load of functions: Media players, Emulators, Useful apps and Homebrew games! browse tham all here, but take care with the ones you dont really understand,as they might ruin your wii! most of them are really safe tho.

    Those who were able to install bootmi as boot2 SHOULD BACKUP THEIR NAND RIGHT AWAY!!! If bootmii was installed as ios, then you donít need this step, although you can make one just in case. Mind that you will need a Gamecube controller tho if bootmii was an ios


    Here is what you should do (abstract from Dogeggs' guide, hope he doesnt mind)
    Quote:
    2. BACK UP YOUR NAND (OPTIONAL)
    Making a NAND backup with Bootmii is highly recommended, it will recover your Wii from 99.9% of bricks.
    Use the same SD card you used to install Bootmii and make sure there is at least 530mb free on it.
    Bootmii is very fussy about what SD cards it uses, so avoid generic ones and try and use a Sandisk or similar.


    a) Put the SD card into the Wii, if you installed Bootmii as boot2 then it will load, if it is installed as an IOS go to the Homebrew Channel, press 'home' on your wiimote and select 'Launch Bootmii'.

    b) Use the power/reset/eject buttons to navigate the Bootmii menu and select the icon with the gears on it. If those buttons don't work then you will have to use a Gamecube controller.

    c) Now select the icon with a green arrow pointing from the chip to the SD card and follow the on screen instructions.

    D) In about 10 mins you will have a NAND backup, it is normal to have up to 80 bad blocks so don't worry if you get some.

    e) Put the SD card into PC and copy the NAND backup somewhere safe, you can now delete it from your card. If you installed Bootmii as boot2 then also copy the Bootmii folder to your PC and either delete or rename it, otherwise it will load every time you switch your Wii on.

    If ever you get bricked then copy the bootmii folder and NAND backup onto your card, do steps a) & b) again, using Preloader to get to HBC if necessary, then select the icon with the arrow going from the SD card to the chip. It is not recommended to restore your NAND if you have Bootmii installed as an IOS.
    The following should get you a cios, so that you can play backups on your wii:

    >>Those who had previously (before the update) installed ios249 may have a chance to play backed up games easily. They should run cios38rev14 installer from Homebrew Channel and use ios250. if that does not work, try running it again, but using one of the following : ios202, ios222,ios223,ios249.Then you can proceed to D. If one of these does not work either, you should have to do the following:
