He claims the option to install Bootmii as boot2 isn't there. I asked him what his serial number was and he said LU38(then some more numbers). I was confused. anyways. I want to tell him to install preloader. His wii is v3.4U

what steps should he take before installing preloader?

go to his house and see for your self if he can't install to boot2 but if you want preloader you'll have to go up to 4.0 cause there's no hacks for 3.4

OK. I had him update with Waninkoko's 4.0 installer

and now I had him try and install preloader, but it says

failed to get root current IOS(36 has the sakesign bug fix)

I'm afraid to do that because I think his wii is a newer model type because he couldn't install bootmii as boot2

even though the serial number isn't LU64+

Is IOS 36 rev 10 the one I'm looking for?

oh my god. my friend is so stupid. after ALL of that work he just told me he updated because nintendo sent him a message saying he should update

I'm pissed right now. I even told him NOT TO UPDATE FROM NINTENDO

that stuff took like 2 and a half hours because I was instructing him through AIM. omg
