    Options for using backup besides bootmii?

    I have bootmii installed as an ios, so i cant use it to do a nand backup.

    what other program could i use to use the backup?

    i have priiloader, and am running on a 4.2u system menu.

    /side question - how do you uninstall darkcioscorp 1.1

    BootmiiIOS is good for MAKING Nand backups. But not RESTORING them. However, keep your backup because you can use a NAND programmer in a worst case scenario.

    To uninstall cIOSCORP or DARKCORP See HERE Read carefully.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    This was already asked and answered, smede2. For restore function and if bootmii is IOS installed, a NAND programmer (a hardware/software combo) would have to be used. There is no alternative to BootMii with regard to the function you speak of.

    I had bootmii installed as IOS and ended up with a semi brick after trying to update the shopping channel with Dop Shop which froze during the update.
    When I switched the wii off and back on there was just a black screen.
    I could not access the wii system menu after the brick but Priiloader had been installed this and allowed me access to the HBC and Bootmi without first going through the sytem menu.
    Bootmi was installed as IOS and it allowed me to restore my nand back up with Priiloaders help.
    So if you have Prii loader installed first and bootmi as IOS via the HBC then you yes can restore your Nand with a bricked system menu.

    It is not recommended to restore with bootmii as IOS. Also, if you can get into priiloader and HBC there is really no reason to restore. So not necessary in the situation you described mastic_man.
