    When you install BootMii as boot2, it automatically launches everytime you start your Wii and goes away for five seconds. Are you used to that?

    I set mine to 2 seconds and autoboot hbc, and yea I'm pretty used to not having to see my system menu screen pretty much at all anymore.

    You mean that little delay before it launches to the wii menu or hbc depending on how you set it? Yeah.

    It was annoying and a waste of time, so I just renamed the bootmii folder to skip the whole thing. Problem solved.

    Especially the disclaimer which warns you that you should not use bootmii until you understand what it does.

    Which is provide a small application launcher framework non-dependant on nintendo files and a utility to backup and restore your NAND if you happen to f it up.

    Not sure if i'm using "hacking language" too but don't expect a lot pf plain terms in GBAtemp.net > Wii Discussions > Wii - Hacking >

    Theres an old saying about heat and a kitchen, you should put a day aside and go to wiibrew.org and read as much as you can. I'm a guy with limited knowledge outside of windows (I have tinkered with linux but nowhere near enough to know anything outside of the basics) and even I found a way to start easy and understand what i'm doing with a $250 electronic device that I could easily destroy if I didn't know what I was doing.

    Just something to think about, Most of us aren't too lazy to help you after you brick your shit because you didn't read two paragraphs, show us the same respect and try not to be too lazy to at least read and not expect things personally explained to you in a hacking forum.

    You have no idea how many posts like this we have a day here, honestly.

    I use a special SD card for BootMii, so only if I insert that one. BootMii will start up.
    (BootMii folder etc)

    Indeed.
    It even got that easy...

    I guess most people don't know that that app just changes a .txt file, because they don't know it exists.. [​IMG]

    I just renamde it to DONTBootmii and it skips it :-)

    Why would you want to wait for it ? It doesn't add any value.

    I just removed the BootMii folder from my SD Card and saved it on my computer. If I ever need it, I'll copy it back to my SD Card.

    I also use a special SD card just for BootMii so I never see the boot to BootMii unless I want it to and I insert the BootMii card.
