    Trying to update my brothers Wii using xzxero's guide, and the BootMii install screen says:

    BootMii can only be installed as an IOS
    the installed boot1 version prevents a boot2 install (-2)

    This didn't happen on my Wii, but can someone tell me how to install HackMii as a boot2?

    So bootmii as an IOS can still be recovered the same as a boot2 correct?

    Unfortunately, no. BootMii as an IOS does not help recover bricks, but it can still perform a NAND backup/restore for non-fatal incidents.

    I would recommend installing pre/priiloader for added protection from banner bricks and bad wad files
