    Yay, finally another release!

    Version 0.2 of our installer (the BootMii beta2 release) is almost 3 month old, and we finally got around to push out some fixes.

    We hoped to have some nice additions for HBC done for this release, but unfortunately those are not yet ready for prime time. We didn’t want to delay some fixes to the installer and BootMii any further, so we hope you enjoy this one – even if HBC remains unchanged compared to BootMii beta 2.

    HackMii installer (v0.3):

    * Saner selection of IOSs for the installer itself and the installed HBC
    * BootMii will now install on Wiis with bad blocks in the boot2 area
    * Fixed some hangs when rebooting Starlet

    BootMii beta 3 (v1.0):

    * Improved the SD card compability
    * Increased the backup/restore speed for some SD cards, but decreased it for others [​IMG]
    * Fix GPIO input for all Wiis
    * Wavebird support
    * Fixed a silly bug where NAND backups were left as 0 byte files
    * Keys are now saved to SD as /bootmii/keys.bin too
    "

    Looks like wavebirds are now working.

    My Lexar 2GB now works.... But it is VERY slow to write my NAND. And my Kingston gives me FAILED -2. Why?

    Because it's just not fully compatible. Code running in that boot2 has to be created from scratch, they can't just take existing code.

    Very nice, I just wish we could get away from the .bin file and go to a file/folder set.

    But, very nice indeed. Thanks a bunch.

    Hmm. Forget about the -2. It's -1. I have like 567 MB free space.

    well it's a full 1:1 dump, byte by byte. It will restore the Wii to exactly the way it was when you made the backup.
    So I guess that just requires a raw dump file and not a file/folder structure

    Too bad they won't ever be able to fix the incompatible boot1 issues.
