Of course that's the focus. They've always said that the IOS version would be improved later. Also, by its very nature it likely can't boot before the System Menu. It's not "fail" when they went out of their way to give you at least part of the experience that your boot1 denies you.
Best Non-Infectus nand backup/restore solution so far.
Give it time, it does what it's supposed to and if you don't want it autobooting to the bootmii menu delete your bootmii folder on SD which can be easily remade via the hackmii installer app and it will load the system menu instead.
I backed up my nand to a 2gb sd card i rarely use with a bootmii folder on it and made a copy to my pc and put it away in case of emergency.
You got that wrong. BootMii IOS isn't for brick prevention, preloader replacement or nand backups. It's for support of both processors. Until now there are no applications that make use of it, it's a beta, wait for the official release!
I knew I had a patched boot1 but I thought the IOS version would run at boot and support wiimote.
Let's face it, the patched boot1 prevents you from running anything modified before the system menu, what would you expect ? miracles ?
just use preloader if you want control on the system menu boot even if it will be never as powerful as bootmii...
if you want to use bootmii NAND backup feature, just use it as IOS throught the HBC and make Preloader autoboot the HBC, still better than nothing
