    I just finished modding my friend's Wii for his family. I installed BootMii to Boot2, but is there anyway I can have it so the Wii just turns on to the System Menu? I want to streamline the experience for his family by making it as east to understand as possible

    Could I uninstall it from Boot2 or change a setting or something or reinstall it to boot through the other way?

    Just delete the bootmii folder from the SD card and it will boot into the system menu.

    I thought of doing this, but just wanted to verify. Thanks

    You should keep bootmii intact.
    There is a bootmii configuration tool that will allow you to tweak the app. I believe this tool can be downloaded from the homebrew browser app.

    keep bootmi installed, edit the configuration file to choose if you want to boot into bootmii, HBC or system menu.
    Set delay to 0 to automatically boot into your desired location without countdown into bootmii screen.

    There is a Bootmii config editor homebrew if you want to edit the config file directly on Wii.
    http://wiibrew.org/wiki/BootMii_Configuration_Editor


    There are also modded version of the "bootmii program".
    instead of launching bootmii, it launch selected channel installed on your Wii at boot.

    power ON -> run USBLoader ;)
    no system menu or HBC displayed
    to do that, you need to install :
    - the homebrew on your SD card
    - The forwarder on your system menu
    - The armboot.bin in bootmii folder to load the desired forwarder
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/bootmii-channel-forwarders.356995

    if you use the armboot.bin forwarders, keep the real bootmii's armboot.bin file as backup (rename it)

    Or you could just rename the folder -bootmii and that will do the trick

    I prefer the config file set to 0 (no flashing led, config can be changed with homebrew if/when needed).
    But it's up to the end user's need.

    maybe even deleting the folder completely is as good as any other solutions.
