    This is a rather simple question, with what I think is a simple answer.

    I have BootMii installed, and a NAND backup. I copied the files from my SD and deleted them, so BootMii doesn't start on startup.

    Let's say I brick my Wii... Can I put the files back on my SD, and BootMii will load on power-up so I can restore NAND ? Or do I always have to have them on there, and BootMii start up everytime, for me to be able to restore my NAND if I brick?


    Thanks.

    you can put the files back on there and bootmii will again boot at power-up....

    as an alternative, you could have left the files on there and then renamed the bootmii folder something else (i named mine ~bootmii)

    Did you know that BootMii can be configured to load the Wii System Menu at start? The option can be enabled by editing the BootMii.ini file on the SD card.

    To make things easier, you can download the BootMii Configuration Editor from WiiBrew or the HomeBrew Browser.

    it only boots at startup if you have boot2

    you usually have to load it through the HBC if it's installed as IOS
