    Of course BootMii lives on, just because Marcan has a dead rat up his arse doesn't mean the rest of Team Twiizers does. The worst thing is I understand where Marcan et all is coming from, but slagging off every ones skills just because he doesn't agree with the direction things are taking is wrong. Slag off there ethics, morals etc but not there skills. Where would the world be without the Haber process? Ethically and morally I think Haber was a monster, but I'm not going to slag off the production of ammonia using an iron catalyst

    Watch this forum for a loader that works from preloader and can launch discs and channels too. Ok you won't have banners, but you will have boxart for discs etc

    Yea only from what i read, it has more "brick protection" than preloader, and ofcourse, no bugs.

    from what i know yes but is better in some technical way as it is built into boot2 and does not need the IOS, it runes before IOS and therefor a better solution.

    Bootmii resides in boot2... It means it's loaded before everything else. It's the ultimate brick protection as well as being able access all of the wii hardware before the low level systems kick in... basically giving you full run of everything the system has to offer.

    Also, it's much harder/less likely that nintendo will be able to patch it in future updates.

    BootMii replaces boot2 and can launch either a file from SD (like a forwader on SD) or the System Menu. With preloader installed I guess it would launch that instead of the SysMenu, but putting preloader on the SD once you have BootMii would be better

    Yep, a replacement sysmenu would just be an app, just like replacement shells on Windows. I've been researching this quite thoroughly and the only thing that can't be done in a homebrew app reliably is banner parsing and rendering. And I'm sure that will be worked out soon, but months soon not Waninkoko update soon.

    anyway USB loader is still good but i think they should take there time and make tings safe and work properly.
