    I basically just want to install it for the sake of the brick protection. I'll probably make the backups I need and then stick the files on my hard drive somewhere and continue using Preloader for boot. I had a few quick questions though.

    - I already have DVDX installed using PatchMii (I have a chip, and that's apparently the easiest way to get it to work with a chip). Is there any reason to run the DVDx installer from the HackMii installer?

    - Is there a way to remove BootMii yet?

    - Has the Homebrew Channel been fixed to handle SDHC properly yet? I heard there was a bug before.

    Thanks.

    - No need to reinstall DVDx
    - With HackMii Installer 0.2 you can uninstall BootMii
    - HBC 1.03 (comes with HackMii Installer 0.2 ) supports SDHC and USB

    Great, thanks. One other quick question. I remember reading somewhere that you needed to format your SD card beforehand, or at least back everything up, because it would erase everything at some point during the installation (or maybe the NAND backup). Is this still true?

    Take a look at the BootMii 0.2 release notes < http://hackmii.com/2009/05/bootmii_beta_2/ >:

    backupmii accepts fragmented SD cards now, reformatting is not performed anymore. Old NAND dumps are still compatible.

    Ah, thanks. Sorry, I was just looking at bootmii.org.

    I'm having some more issues, unfortunately. I downloaded the installer, used an elf->dol converter, but when I go to run it in the HBC it says that it is not a valid Wii application. Could it be an issue with my conversion or something?

    Raptir, you don't need a dol to elf converter, that's for gamecube homebrew, just rename it from boot.elf to boot.dol or vice versa. That might be your problem.

    Ah, didn't realize that. I'll try it.
