    according to a certain website and as confirmed by Bushing.

    installing BootMii on a Wii that contains DIP patched IOS's (i.e 249 for example.) will basically leave you with a Atari Emu. (i dont think its gonna be that bad but...)

    opinions... good or bad for the scene and users?

    Its not going to have much of a user base then is it? I guess if the only reason you mod your wii is to play homebrew tic tac toe and watch dvds then you aren't going to need something like bootmii anyway.

    That is Nintendo's job... Not Team Twiizers job..

    Nintendo had to release a good console their self...
    I love the Wii, but really. The textures and protection I see are really bad...
    But that is also why the Wii self is cheap.

    And say, Nintendo does deliver good service. And FREE WiFi... not fake thing like you HAVE to pay for WiFi on Xbox since they are doing so "much" for you...

    Screw Xbox live... It is the same as on Mario Kart Wii etc but Wii is free!

    BootMii saves your wii's guys... so why are you guys not wanting it?
    What if you fuck up your wii and you dident install Preloader?
    Thats Because with BootMii you can just store it on your SD without any installing.

    From the same site.


    Details about the comex exploit
    I have just received an attachment via email showing some IRC logs of #wiidev EFNET. To summarize:

    1. comex will NOT be releasing the system menu exploit. He instead intends to find a Super Smash Bros: Brawl exploit.

    2. The exploit will have code in it that will detect disc launchers and will brick the Wii with an ominous "erasing" message if any are found. It will also uninstall CIOS249 and CIOS222, which are used by said launchers.

    3. This is related to the TrustDev alliance.

    Only bullshit.

    Bushing is a serious hacker (as others too) and he would write a post on HackMii if this would be real.

    Oh my God...are you realy that stupid to belive that [​IMG]? Come on...I think this was a joke from bushing, and he got what he wanted..a mass panic in the noobs, even there's no proof...well done... [​IMG]. This made my day...

    I'm pretty shure it won't do that...but if there's the small chance of 0.111% that this will happen...well, back to the Discs. I have no problem with that...but I'm shure (99,889%) that this won't happen...

    This so stinks of bs, its not true but who cares if it is? I don't know what bootmii does and i don't think many people posting itt do either, though ive heard all the stupid theories ie it will fix lu64/install hbc on 4/turn your wii into something that is not simply a toy for playing games etc The wii does everything a pirate could ever want now and i'm quite happy with it as it is.

    I guess the BootMii project shot itself in the foot. Users will go for what they want, not what you tell them they want.
