    All is woking fine, but I want to make a backup

    Hi All,

    I soft modded my 4.2u WII a year ago, I may or may not have the NAND backup, all has been, and is, working well I'd just like make a back up of my console.

    What are the steps, to make the backup and to restore?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you don't have the bootmii folder. Download Hackmii Installer and run from homebrew channel.

    Bootmii...
    Prepare SD card
    Now you can start bootmii from homebrew channel by pressing "Home".

    OK so now I have a backed up NAND on my SD card (NAND.bin and KEYS.bin about 550MB worth). If my WII gets "Bricked", I can use this backup to restore my NAND, correct?

    1) Do Bricked WIIs have the capability of booting from the SD card so as to use the Bootmii restore function?
    2) Will this restore truly bring my softmodded WII back to life?
    3) What is this need fro "Preloader .30 (Enable SM Hacks)" or any preloader, how do I know I have installed it.

    Please note: I'm getting ready to use the "Black Ops Guide" and in making changes, in the event I Brick, I want to get back to my multitude of games. I don't want to Brick for 1 game.

    Thanks in advance.

    1. If bootmii is installed as boot2
    2. yes, it is like a restore point or a snapshot of your wii. bootmiis must bee boot2 though
    3. priiloader is to prevent your wii from being updated through Nintendo, and some brick recovery as well. Hold your reset button in when you start up your wii (keep it pressed) and it woo boot to the priiloader screen if you have it. If you do not have it, get it!

    (1&2) It appears Bootmii is installed as boot2 since it boots when my SD card is installed.
    (3) Is this guide recommended, if not, which? GUIDE: HOW TO INSTALL PRIILOADER ON FWs 4.1 & 4.2 + AUTO-BOOT TO YOUR FAVE USB LOADER - AfterDawn: Forums

    Thanks in advance

    Great, boot2 is your friend! We only recommend guides on wiihacks (although that one may be good) Add Priiloader to 4.1U or 4.1E or 4.2U or 4.2E, 0.5 (r99)
