    I'm just wondering how many others have had issues with Menu hacks.
    EDIT:I did put in the title Bootmii as Boot2 menu with hacks meaning i wished to have the pole answered by people with Bootmii as Boot2 installed

    priiloader on 4.2U wii, never had a problem

    u may want to add firmware and region to your poll, because system menu hacks vary from firmware to firmware

    the second question in your poll is caused by stupid users. when you try to load the system menu with the wrong IOS, it does this. its usually IOS249 that people are trying. and what does the readme for that cIOS say? "This IOS has been made to be used ONLY with homebrew software.". thats what happens when you dont follow the directions.

    4.2 on priiloader, and all is steady & stable. [​IMG]

    In my case, yes. But you make it sound like that is a logical deduction of the poll outcome, and that isn't true.

    (in fact, I think the bootmii IOS users are more likely to have extra hacks installed)



    EDIT: wait...I just noticed that the thread title has nothing to do with the poll options. Are you saying you want only boot2 bootmii users to answer the poll?
    (if so, you might want to add that to the original post)

    Isn't it kinda redundant having the first question (what hacks) if you already have to choose it in the third question anyway? [​IMG]

    Couldn't you just patch IOS70 to have ES_Identify, and then it'd work? Not that there's any point.

    I had StartPatch on 4.0 and never had a problem. I don't have hacks anymore.

    Bootmii as boot2 with startpatch (had preloader 0.29, switched to startpatch when I updated to 4.1). Have zero issues.

    @Wever: Bootmii IOS users are indeed more likely to have extra hacks, specifically preloader/priiloader for anti-brick purposes. Bootmii as an IOS offers zero brick protection since you can't access it on bricked wiis without priiloader, and restoring a dump through it can (and has been known to) brick a wii.
