    So I am sending my Wii into nintendo tomorrow, and they are going to send me one of there factory wii's in 3 business day, because I still have my warranty. I used to only have bootmii as an IOS. So the question is, do you think it's possible to get a wii from them that I can install bootmii as boot2 not just an IOS? If so do you know of any way I could get one of these Wii's that can install bootmii as boot2.

    Thanks.

    I got a few systems from Nintendo six months ago, and they were ALL boot1 fixed [​IMG] Don;t hold your breath.

    I ended up buying two Wii consoles on ebay for $100 each...and BOTH were bootmii boot2 compliant!

    I got the new wii from nintendo today! came with firmware 3.4u, and I installed bootmii as boot2. Im so happy, it's kinda funny the fact that I posted this on tehskeen, and some kid named djdynamite he is like a super moderator over there acted like he knew everything and he was wrong haha. Backing up my nand right now. I am actually glad I bricked my other wii now!
