if you need to know anything of what i installed on my wii,just ask
there is an option named 'launch boot mii' in my homebrew channel menu.
is that it?do i need anything else? what should i do exactly if my wii is bricked?
"launch bootmii" in HBC does nothing for banner brick protection (that's bootmii@IOS)...as you would need to get to HBC through the SM (which would be borked at this point)
bootmii@boot2: when you turn on your wii, if the slot light gives you two quick flashes, then you have bootmii@boot2 installed...with that, just have the bootmii files on the SD and it will launch bootmii during boot....from there you can: 1.) reload your NAND from a backup copy, or 2.) load HBC (assuming you have compatible versions of bootmii/HBC (ie. bootmii 0.7/0.8 and HBC 1.0.7/1.0.8)) and fix your banner bricked SM
bootmii@boot2 is not possible on all wii's as Ninty made the boot2 read only once they saw what the hackers were doing....
if bootmii@boot2 is not possible, then you would need priiloader. with priiloader installed, launch it by holding reset during the boot sequence...from there you can launch HBC and then fix the banner bricked SM.....
to actually fix a banner brick...load a channel manager in HBC and remove the offending channel...then your SM should load properly
ah yes Porobu...i wondered if someone would correct me...i knew what i had written wasn't correct...but since it really wasn't on topic, i wanted to leave it simple (and in terms they won't question) for the sake of the Noobs....
i'll stand corrected....good catch.
so,in caseit gets bricked,i just load priiloader,and go to hbc.then i go to the wad manager and unnistall the bad wad.
is that it?
yes. You can do the same with bootmii boot2 install. If bootmii is an option Id recommend it over priiloader any day.
Just be sure to never uninstall ios, never uninstall the system menu. Bad things happen to those who do.
say,if the banner brick happens because of a bad wad;after I recover from it,will i lose anything else (saves,chanels,etc...)?
Make a backup with Bootmii and in the worst case, you have the man himself "Deadlyfoez" that can help you out. Some how he can insert the bootmii backup back to your NAND.
these are usually easy to recover from just boot into wad manager or hbc from bootmii and delete the wad and it should fix it you won't lose anything.
I know this is off topic, but you got me really curious - What were the hackers doing? and if it wasn't read only, would it have been possible for everyone to install it as boot2, instead of some needing to install it as an IOS?
Boot 2 can be written in al wiis but N fixed boot 1 trucha bug in mid 2008 do its imposible to install bootmii/boot2
've installed priiloader,paper mario and phoenix wright one.no bricks
and i know what to do if it bricks now
but,a last question:
if i sucessfully install a good wad,can i delete it form my sd after instalation?
Yes, you can delete the WAD from your SD card.
Slightly off topic, I have a launch(ish, got it 1 month after) Wii, that's had it's drive replaced to the new one (D32 or something. ). Anyway, would my Wii be able to write to boot2?
Load hackmii installer and you wiil know if boot1 has the trucha bug
