    If it reboots you back to system menu after a black screen, then bootmii is installed in boot2. The issue has to be with the SD card, either it's not reading the SD card at all or some file is missing somewhere on your SD card.

    bootmii is notorious for not working with some sdcards that work fine in other applications on the wii.

    The compatiblity may have changed in the latest version. As far as i know they(svpe) worked hard to get as many as possible cards to work, maybe now there are more cards compatible, but in exchange your card is not compatible anymore.

    don't forget to backup all your files if you do this, or they're all gone...
