    Can anyone tell me how these work by that i mean when its installed what dose it change.
    Is it an iso a wad ar an extra bit software thats put into the wii
    The reason i want to know is some time back I installed bootmii and now want to install boot2 but I get the message install1 prevents this
    Now if its been installed it can be uninstalled right? Or am I on the wrong track here?
    Regards Baz

    To know what boot2 does, you need to know the boot process of the Wii:

    Boot0 -> Boot1 -> Boot2 -> System menu

    As you can see, boot2 is loaded by Boot1. The newer wiis have a newer version of Boot1 that refuses to load bootmii, so thats why bootmii can't be installed on those wii's

    Gambia, The
    Exactly. BootMii installed to boot2 trucha signs boot2, and the new boot1 doesn't have the trucha bug and can't be downgraded(before somebody asks...), because it's on a ROM or its hash is on a ROM(i'm not sure, but the result is the same, you can't modifiy it).
