Hey all I just have a few questions about updating my BootMii to beta 4.

- I installed the latest HBC 1.0.6. but not the latest BootMii
- I'm on System Menu 4.0 USA/NTSC w/ some system mods listed in my sig

1. Which HackMii/Bannerbomb should I use to install BootMii beta 4
2. Do I have to uninstall the previous BootMii through HackMii, and then go back and install the new one, or will it overwrite?
3. Will my beta 2 NAND Backup work on Beta 4?
4. Will any of my System Mods in my sig interfere with BootMii beta 4 (System Menu/IOS Patches, staying 4.0/boot2)
5. Like #4, will beta 4 work with original boot2, or is it meant for the 4.2/LU64 newer boot2v4. Basically, does it work with both?

Can someone answer those and assure it's safe? I have BootMii beta2 I think.

how can you have a launch day wii with LU57, I got mine on launch day, and mine is LU100****

anyway...
1. just use the HBC to install it
2. just overwrite the old one
3. it should.
4. not likely
5. it will work with your wii b/c you already have the ability to install it as boot 2


hope this helps

1. The latest installer has BootMii beta 4. You can run it from the Homebrew Channel.
2. It will overwrite. NEVER EVER UNINSTALL BOOTMII THAT IS THE STUPIDEST IDEA EVER YOUR WII WILL NOT BOOT and I don't think it can be uninstalled anyway. Yeah. It overwrites.
3. There were some incompatibility issues between beta2 and beta3 but these should be ironed out by now. Read through the bootmii site to make sure.
4. Not that I know of. This version of the HackMii installer doesn't have any piracy checks to my knowledge, everything should run fine.
5. The newest revision should be compatible with all Wiis. Read the Readme on the bootmii site.

Personally, I'm still using beta2 and see no major reason to upgrade, but the authors know what they're doing.

Latest Hackmii and latest bannerbomb

It will overwrite, don't uninstall
3. Will my beta 2 NAND Backup work on Beta 4?
Not sure. Better make a new backup
4. Will any of my System Mods in my sig interfere with BootMii beta 4 (System Menu/IOS Patches, staying 4.0/boot2)
nope

If you already had bootmii as boot2, this one will work too

Alright thanks a lot guys. One last thing, I just get the HBC app version of the latest HackMii installer rather than Bannerbomb right?

right, if you already have the HBC installed you don't need to do bannerbomb. Just run the installer through the HBC
