    First the backstory (you can skip this first paragraph if you want).
    I have a homebrew enabled Wii running 4.1E, with various CIOSs etc, and PriiLoader v0.29. I bought Metroid Other M (I have my Wii set up to skip disc updates) but the game won't run. I guess this is because of my system menu version, because when I ripped the game to my WBFS HD and played it using WiiFlow, it ran fine. But I'd like to play it off the disc. So I intend to safely update to 4.3 (I have some questions about that too, but they can wait). But before doing that, I'd like to create a NAND backup.

    Now onto the main problem. To backup my NAND I need to install BootMii. After reading a little into that, I saw that you can install it as an IOS or as boot2.
    This is where I get in over my head. [​IMG]
    What is the difference between installing it as an iOS and installing it as boot2?
    What exactly is boot2?
    What do I need to do with PriiLoader (Uninstall it? Let BootMii install over it? Have both BootMii and PriiLoader?)?

    Right now I'm running a 4.1E Wii with Priiloader v0.29.
    When I load up the PriiLoader menu, it says "IOS v60" and "Systemmenu v450" (I'm not sure if that info matters or not).
    Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Keep priiloader installed and block disc and online updates with it. Install bootmii as ios and if possible boot2.

    You should update to priiloader v0.4
    Boot2 bootmii is the ultimate wii recovery option, before you install it you should update your boot2 to v4 if you have to older v2. You probably have boot2 v4, but if you had v2, a wii system update would remove your bootmii, which you don't want.

    Thanks for your quick response. I already have PriiLoader set to block online and disc updates. So now I think I know what boot2 is.
    The thing is, how do I find out what version of boot2 I have? And how do I update it to v4 (if it's on v2)?
    And also (sorry for all the questions) do you know where PriiLoader is installed? Is it before the system menu and after boot2? Or is it in boot2?
    Thanks.

    Priiloader is installed in the system menu. It moves the system menu app and places itself in its place. So when the wii loads the system menu, priiloader is loaded and priiloader then loads the system menu. It runs on the system ios. Corruption on the system ios will kill priiloader, re-installation/uninstallation of the system menu will remove priiloader, system updates will remove priiloader as well.

    The boots something like this, boot1 ->boot2 ->system ios ->system menu (priiloader)
    Having bootmii installed as boot2 puts it before the system menu, allowing you to recover from almost any brick.

    Ok, thanks! That's cleared everything up.
    So how do I update boot2? Is the only way to update boot2 a controlled system update? Because I'd like to back up my NAND before the system update.

    You can use dop-mii to view your boot2 version and update it if needed.

    Freudian Lemur's brother here. How do we get dop-mii to tell us our boot2 version? We're using v14.5.

    Never mind, worked that bit out.

    Right, new problem now. I updated from 4.1 to 4.2. That was fine. But now when I try to update from 4.2 to 4.3 using Waninkoko's 4.3b updater, I get error = -1 when downloading the "EULA (EUR)". So it just restarts the Wii without installing anything. I tried a few times and it behaved exactly the same each time (so it's not just a connection problem). I did a bit of searching, but found no answers.

    No need to update your SM. Just use DOP-Mii to install the latest IOS56 and you're golden.

    Already on that, still want's to update. I managed to update to 4.3 (I just hadn't cleared enough space for the download, I'm stupid). Now I just need to install PriiLoader to block disk updates.
    Now another problem! Yay!
    I'm trying to install PriiLoader, but it says my cIOS (249) doesn't have ES_DIVerify (didn't get this error when installing PriiLoader on 4.1). I've tried removing 249 with AnyTitleDeleter and reinstalling it, but I still get the same error.

    The update stubbed out your cIOS249. Just remove it with DOP-Mii, and re-install cIOSX back in slot 249.

    NEVER USE WANINKOKO SAFE UPDATER! you can simply use dop-mii to install a non patched System Menu and it will even prompt you to download the correct ios needed to run if you dont have it installed; installing a new System Menu with dop-mii does not require you to redo any softmods. I don't see any point in using his safe updaters when it's safer to use dop-mii; on the other hand his cIOS249+250 are great [​IMG]

    That's because when you updated to 4.2 it removed Priiloader, removing the disc update block. All you ever needed to do in the first place was install IOS56, now you're just playing catch-up to fix all the stuff you messed up by updating *shrugs*

    But doesn't SM 4.3 actively delete the HBC every time it boots? I don't see how dop-mii is going to help there.
