    Hi i recently picked up a second hand wii that had been soft modded, and have updated to latest HBC and installed the necessary wads

    My question is every time i turn the power on the wii it boots into bootmii i believe then I have to reset the wii to boot into the main menu

    Is this possible to change?

    Thanks

    Eject the SD card. Only put it in when you need to run homebrew.

    There is a program that you can download in homebrew browser that lets you turn off bootmii. That way you can have the sd card in your wii without taking it out. Also, if you plan on using bootmii you can just turn it on again.

    Even better: take the bootmii folder off of your SD card and move it to your PC (keep it in a safe place) so that if you accidentally brick your Wii, you don't have to be scared that you didn't turn it on. You can just move it back to the SD card from the PC when you need it

    Edit: Or do Babadlek's VVV It's basically the same thing I said, but you don't need to even move the folder off of the SD card his way

    why make it simple when you can make it hard..?

    just rename the "bootmii" folder (for example : "_bootmii") in the root of your SD card. No need to use any program, or even remove the SD Card :wacko:
    your wii will stay protected by bootmii (which is installed in boot2), and if you have to start bootmii, you just have to rename "_bootmii" folder back to "bootmii"
