    I have a new black wii and am new to this homebrew business, I got everything working with the usb loader but I forgot to make a nand backup.
    Can I even make one with the new black wii since I can can only install bootmii as ios?

    Press Power twice till the sd card is highlighted. Then press RESET and it will show BACKUP and RESTORE. press Backup and it will make a nand.bin file on your sd card.

    Use DOP-Mii to re-install IOS254. Then run the hackmii installer and install bootmii as IOS.

    ok i went into dop mii and scrolled over to IOS254 and pressed a, then the screen flashed glitchy stuff and took me back to the install custom ios screen.
    is that not how you reinstall IOS254?

    It will display this screen with a lot of squares it will start backing up your NAND. Wait for it to complete and then take your SD card out and keep your NAND and your KEY safe somewhere on the computer or something.

    so deleting the bootmii folder and running the hackmii installer again will not change anything? I dont want to have to delete everthing and start again because it took me a while to figure out how to get games running off my hard drive and I dont think I could remember what I did to get it to work.

    Alright thanks so much, made a nand backup without a problem, is it common not to get any bad blocks?
    Anyway, thanks again, is there anything else I can do to be more brick protected or am I good to go?

    listen to deadlyfoez, he knows what he is talking about. he is a master of the wii.

    is a nand dump really any good with only bootmii as an ios? lets say you screw up ios70 somehow, and you can still get into priiloader. can you restore using bootmii if you have a dump? as far as i knew you couldn't with bootmii as an ios.

    Yes, but you will need a GameCube Controller (BootMii -> Gears Icon -> Restore NAND -> Push A.B.X.Y together) and since you can access Priiloader, just load HBC and then install IOS70 patched and you will be running again... BootMii as IOS can restore NAND but be sure not to have a power outage during the restore and remember to reinstall Priiloader after it is done.

    I know because I have done a BootMii as IOS restore before and it works.
