    Hello, I would first like to apologize if my question has already been answered; I just can't seem to find any solutions online, so I thought I'd ask for some help myself. Anyway, I have recently performed the Return of the Jodi exploit on my Nintendo Wii U, so I could use the HBC with my vWii. The HBC installation worked, but that's not my issue. I've been informed that installing Bootmii is a must, as it serves as a savior for a bricked console. So, after checking to see if Bootmii was installed on my vWii with the HBC, I noticed that it hadn't installed, so I searched the web for a tutorial. After attempting to install Bootmii (using HackMii Installer), I encountered an error before I could install Bootmii: the installation stated I could NOT install Bootmii. I have tried uninstalling the HBC and restoring my SD, and then trying again, but I didn't succeed in my other attempts neither. I was just wondering what the problem could be. Maybe I'm just a noob and am making some dumb mistake, but, either way, I can't seem to figure it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My Wii U is updated to v. 5.4.0 U and its model is WUP 101(02) if that matters. I have attached a picture of my error. Thanks again! WP_20150810_22_18_34_Pro.jpg

    Bootmii is not compatible with the Wii U. As for brick protection, you don't get much with the vWii, so be careful.

    BootMii doesn't Work on vWii, only on the old normal Wii. It will probably never be supported so you simply can't install it.
    Don't install Priiloader either cause AFAIK that will brick your vWii.

    Thank you both for your answers :) I really wish tutorials online would be a tad more thorough in their explanations; it doesn't seem like it would be that difficult to include a caution. Thanks again!

    To add: don't try any boot2 stuff or you can potentially brick something.
