    See, we lucky basterds from europe (end sarcasm here) get a black wii bundle with WM+ and Wii Sports resort for lousy 200 bucks next month.
    I plan on getting that just for the sake of having it.
    Now, AFAIK, there is NO way of installing BootMii on the new Boot2 that comes with new Wiis and i am pretty sure that the black wiis have the new boot2...

    so there is no way around that right? if i buy a new wii, i cant have bootmii on boot2... or any other thing similar to it?

    No, there's no way around. But you still can hack those wii's and install preloader, bootmii as IOS.
    Not quite as safe as boot2, but if you have some common sense and don't go installing a lot of wads you got 'somewhere' on the interwebs, you should be pretty safe.

    You can't get bootmii on boot2 so you have to install it as an IOS replacement and get preloader. Be very careful with the system menu IOS when you have preloader, if that goes, your bricked.

    Somewhere.
    Yeah, unless theres a magical boot1 exploit (which will probably never happen, according to TT), you can't install BootMii/boot2 to a Wii with a new boot1. [​IMG] If you want to your Wii to look like it has BootMii/boot2, go with Walker's suggestion and install preloader 3.0, then set autoboot to 'BootMii IOS'. [​IMG]

    Or somebody sends Ninjas to Nintendo to retrieve the real keys. I still hope for that option... and that the Ninjas get equipped with cameras and the whole thing uploaded to youtube. [​IMG]

    @OP: Where did you get this info from? Media Markt? Or where? I ordered my black Kuro Wii 2 1/2 months back @Play-Asia.com

    Maybe there is a way but this would be enormous hassle, dissasemble your Wii, solder, desolder, assemble your Wii, not to forget to flash the Nand to the Wii... OMG.

    When they could do it, they would tell us how to do it.

    cause the boot1 verifies the content using a hash.
    you can't edit it like that cause you dont have permission (and even nand root permission or ES_DIVerify can help you there afaik) & the hash.

    EDIT: forgot to crush all hardware edits : good luck reading the nand and having to change the hash too.
    hell im not even sure if you CAN access the hash from boot2 even when connected hardware-level (cause it requires a private key only nintendo has)

    The flat lands.
    Tried that. Nintendo has anti-ninja heat seeking missles. Sneak bastards.

    Anyways, can't you use Infectus to flash your NAND to get the exploit in your boot1 or whatever with a hex editor?
