I have been reading these forums since April of this year (That is when I bought my Wii). I do not post all that much because I get all of my information from reading. I do have a question now though. I have searched but have come up with conflicting answers. My Wii will not install Bootmii as Boot2 and I can only Install it as IOS. I have gamecube controllers so I can play around with the bootmii options. I would like to backup my NAND with Bootmii as IOS. From what I read in the forums here is that yes you can do this with no trouble. The confusion arises when people ask about restoring the NAND. 1) Some people say "NO you can't restore NAND if Bootmii is installed as IOS but you can back it up" Worthless to anyone. Why would you backup NAND if there is no way to restore it? 2) Some people say "YES you can backup your NAND with Bootmii as IOS and you can RESTORE it as long as you have Pre-loader installed and can Boot to HBC to run Bootmii in order to use Restore Function. This option seems feasible. The only way you could get bricked is if you loose System menu for some reason and preloader gets removed in the process. 3) Some people say "YES you can backup your NAND with Bootmi as IOS and you can RESTORE it as much as you want. You Dont need preloader to use it. But if you can't boot the wii up to the system menu you are bricked because there is no way to get into HBC to run Bootmii. Even though Bootmii as IOS is not 100% brick protection can it still be used to get your wii to an earlier time like Windows System Restore in XP hehe Thanks in advance for any answers in this thread.
