    - I downloaded the hackmii files and unpacked them.
    - I allready have Homebrew running.

    What files do I need to copy to the root of my SD cart?

    can I only copy the boot.elf to the root of my original SD (with lots of apps)?
    using a new SD would be best?

    a little help would be nice

    Just do as the hackmii readme says and you´ll be just fine.

    A new SD card isnt necessary when you have at least 600 Mb free space.

    that's my problem....

    I would like to know if I have to put all files inside my SD?
    The Wiiload dir and boot.elf should be on my SD cart?

    -Wiiload dir on SD
    -boot.elf inside the root.
    -turn on wii
    -go to SD
    -put in the SD
    -press 1 on warning screen
    -install bootmii as boot2
    -reboot
    done
    ?????

    Make a new folder in your "apps" folder called Hackmii and place the boot.elf inside it.
    Then load up the Homebrew Channel and look for the boot.elf.

    When running the installer it should add any files you need.

    After you have installed Bootmii you can delete everything except the "bootmii" folder on your SD card if you want.
    And yes, if you edit the .INI you can make it autoboot to HBC.

    Ty Ty.... for explaining this to me!

    "When running the installer it should add any files you need. "
    The boot.elf is the installer. This will create a new folder called Bootmii?
    All other files inside the hackmii.rar arn't neccesary!

    For other people:

    If you have Homebrew allready installed and want to add Bootmii, follow these steps:

    - Make a new folder in your "apps" folder called Hackmii and place the boot.elf inside it.
    - Then go to the Homebrew Channel and look for the boot.elf.
    - follow the instructions and choose how to install (I use Boot2)
    - inside the new created folder Bootmii you can edit the .ini file for choosing how to boot.

    BTW if this doesn't boot into BootMii after installing it is because of incompatibilities with some SD cards, I have 3 different SD cards:

    Transcend 4GB SD (non SDHC)
    Corsair 1GB SD
    No name 1GB SD,

    Only the Corsair works with BootMii.

    anything higher than 2GB for an SD card is SDHC, anything 2GB and under are standard SD cards.

    i dont understand ppl who put things like 4GB(non SDHC) when it is!

    I like to get a confirmation about below (is this correct?):

    "When running the installer it should add any files you need. "
    The boot.elf is the installer. This will create a new folder called Bootmii?
    All other files inside the hackmii.rar arn't neccesary to put on your SD!

    If you have Homebrew allready installed and want to add Bootmii, follow these steps:

    - Make a new folder in your "apps" folder called Hackmii and place the boot.elf inside it.
    - Then go to the Homebrew Channel and look for the boot.elf.
    - follow the instructions and choose how to install (I use Boot2)
    - inside the new created folder Bootmii you can edit the .ini file for choosing how to boot.
    - insert SD and boot for using bootmii startup
    - eject SD and boot for normal startup

    Thanks,
    Milcoi

    Not correct. Before the SDHC standard was created, there were a few 4Gb SD cards available, that are compatible with standard SD.

    Hi,

    just tried to install bootmii.. no succes.

    Can't install and gives me "no vulnerable IOS found"

    ------------

    I saw a sollution:

    1. Run Wad Manger and install IOS36-64-v1042.wad

    2.Exit Wad Manager by press the HOME buttom on WiiMote

    3. Run BootMii installer

    4. After you get everything you want installed from the BootMii installer Run Wad Manager again

    5. Install CIOS36.wad

    6.Exit Wad Manager after it is installed

    ------------

    is this working...i just want to know for sure..
