    Thanks.

    yes they're hackable, but they won't play backup DISKS, but they can play backups off of a USB hard drive

    new wiis also cant install bootmii as boot2, but only as IOS, as long as u are f*cking around too much, that should be more than enough protection (when combined with priiloader)

    but still, if u can get a used wii, i would personally go for that instead (just for the bootmii as boot2, but thats also cuz i DO mess with my wii more than the average person)

    some do, some don't depending on the make/year. Check the serial number. Hit up places like old Walmarts/Kmarts, or Targets Who cares about BootMii....
