    Questions relevant to my interests :P (new black wii 4.3)

    Ok so im new to the wii softmodding scene and did some reading up. Now im left with a few questions :

    1. what is the real effect of not being able to install bootmii to boot2? (IOS INSTALL) (if thats the case with my wii, which it probably will be.)

    2. Does the NAND backup have any benefits in this situation (from question 1)

    3. Is it recommended/wise to downgrade to 4.1 in this situation?

    4. i understand hermes cIOS-222 is installed with hackmii 0.8 pack and thus my wii will be ready for the wiiflow 2.x USB loader after a succesfull softmod?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. If you had the option to install bootmii as boot2 then you would have the option to restore your NAND using the backup just by placing the Bootmii folder and the NAND.bin file on you SD card and powering it on. With Bootmii in stalled as an IOS that is not possible.
    2. You should still install Bootmii as an IOS and do a NAND backup. You can't recover your Wii if ever bricked as easy as you could if it was installed as boot2 but you have the option to send the console off to someone with the right equipment to "Flash" your NAND.bin file back into your Wii to recover it.
    3. You can downgrade to 4.1 IF you follow the correct guide. Mauifrog has a 4.3 softmod guide that covers that. You can find it in my signature.
    4. Follow Mauifrogs guide and you will be ready to use a USB loader. I recommend this guide here to setup you drive.

    1) With IOS you will not be as protected as you would be with boot2, but it really is MUCH better then not having it.
    2) The NAND backup should still be made from bootmii, again, to reduce problems.
    3) The 4.3 Softmod Guide by mauifrog has you do it for programs such as priiloader, and I HIGHLY recommend it.
    4) Never to my knowledge has 222/223 came pre-installed with hackmii. This is an optional install, yet HIGHLY recommended (yet again) to get many games working, including dual layer support. You will need to install ciosx from waninkoko and most likely hermes' 222/223 installer to use usbloaders. There are many fine guides here to do so.

    EDIT: It says something that we both replied nearly the same info. Well met, sir!
    EDIT 2: Quite contrarily, I recommend THIS guide for USB, but really either works! >.< (Being difficult)
