    Hi all, been away for a while so missed the advancement of usb loaders and the like. That along with bootmii , preloader, etc.

    My wii setup is currently

    Jap wii baught in xmas 2007
    d2ckey chip
    3.2u (changed region with anyregionchanger from jap 3.1 to usa 3.2).
    Starfall installed with skip update, any region and skip boot screen
    Homebrew channel installed

    Thats pretty much it, in the past ive used gekko to boot games that dont boot and not messed with cios files or the like.

    Im guessing the steps should be install bootmii - install preloader - install one of the many usb loaders.

    Is there anything im missing? Ive formatted my 80gb usb harddisk (yes, small i know) with the wbfs filesystem,

    thanks

    sounds like a good order to try things, backup your NAND once you install bootmii to boot2 and you're covered

    heres a few tips:
    1. before you make a NAND backup with bootmii, backup your SD card is it will most likely be reformatted
    2. after you make a NAND backup with bootmii, make sure to back up that nand.bin from your sd card to a safe location for future NAND recovery.
    3. proceed with hacking!

    yes. with bootmii (installed as boot2), you can recover from even the worst brick
