    Not sure if this was spoken about before, and if it has I apologize. Has anyone tested the Nand restore functionality? I'm currently away from the Wii for a day or so until I can test it myself...

    I'll wait for an official 0.4 HackMii installer release. Its bad enough that those are experimental as it is. [​IMG]

    It's probably not a good idea to use it if there is no mention of it on their site.

    A quote from someone over at the wiibrew forums:

    "Well, I've been out all night, but I installed and tried the new Bootmii as my boot2. It works just fine, I'm gonna guess it's safe to install, I made a NAND backup, it was slower than beta3 so I'm going to guess there was more SD optimization code that came at the cost of speed. I would almost call it ungodly slow, but still usable, it took me about 5-10 minutes to backup my NAND (depends if you wanna count verification time or not) but I tried to restore it right away and it didn't give me a different Wii error, so I guess I'm going to hold onto this version. Good show Twiizers, good show"


    Well, looks like it is safe...as there was a second confirmation afterward. Maybe I'll give it a go tomorrow and see if it can finally see my A-data 16GB card for bootmii [​IMG]

    the only thing changed in bootmii itself (that I can see) is the fact that the nand dump/restore is fixed. You can't use a dump from the original version 3 (without fixing it yourself first) but a dump from 2 or this version will restore like it should. Don't know anything about changes in hbc 1.0.4 though

    Well, that is good news. Maybe some work has been done behind the scenes to the SD compatibility. I will certainly give this a go tomorrow [​IMG]

    I've already linked to it in my guide earlier with a red colored note because of the problems with 0.3 restoring. I told people to either find the beta 0.2 installer and use that, or try using the beta 0.4 test one posted on comment 45 HERE

    Well, it must be safe enough to use if they're offering it in the comments on HackMii

    Ahh, I was not aware (along with the rest that posted) but am glad it is available. I do read the hackmii notes pretty religiously, but rarely delve into the comments. Thanks!

    i don't know who laked this, but i got it in pm from somebody at bootmii channel cause of a bug inside bootmii beta 3.

    it has indeed a new hbc inside which has several bugs but as far as bootmii goes everything is working fine...

    Do we know if this is just a fix for the and restore? I hoped it would improve sd compatibility but 3/4 of mine still don't launch bootmii.....

    Possibly it will be better to wait until it shows up on Bootmii.org downloads...

    Is this the rumored version that should be boot2v3 compatible ?
    (I'm not talking about boot2v4)

    Since I I've a boot2v2 Wii I'll not test it now
