    News about Bootmii
    some infos about Bootmii!
    i was lurking in #wiidev and bushing stated some nice infos.


    [23:47:38] wait a few days and use bootmii

    [23:47:51] few days == ??

    [23:50:03] one day < few days < many days

    [23:50:45] bushing u got most of the stuff ready?

    [23:50:55] if so -> *hands up*

    [23:51:05] dhewg? :)

    [23:51:06] * bushing beams




    [23:56:54] it's been "within the next week or two" for a month now

    [23:57:03] but still remains at "within the next week or two"

    [23:57:09] I think we've rewritten the installer enough times

    [23:58:55] does it work for virgin 4.0 wiis?

    [23:59:07] that's alot of ppl care about i think

    [23:59:13] probably not

    [23:59:28] y not?

    [23:59:34] i'm glad i'm still on 3.2e :)

    [23:59:56] yes

    [00:00:00] well

    [00:00:09] more a question of when you bought it

    [00:00:25] while the system menu's version doesn't directly related to if bootmii can be installed or not, if your system has 4.0 it probably has the patched boot1

    [00:00:34] as long as you dont got the boot1 i guess heh

    [00:01:21] lets say i got a wii with the old boot1 and virgin 4.0, would i be able to install bootmii out of the box?

    [00:01:26] crediar, if your system CAME with 4.0....

    [00:02:26] yes

    [00:02:38] so it's all about boot1

    [00:02:58] do we need some sort of hack for 4.0? like the twilight hack?

    [00:03:02] to run the installer

    [00:03:12] * bushing points at comex

    [00:03:13] um, duh

    [00:04:20] hehe ok

    [00:04:41] is there an uninstaller included? :O i personally like homebrew that can be uninstalled

    [00:05:06] just install boot2 from a disk, right

    [00:05:07] ?

    [00:05:15] it can be uninstalled; the first beta may or may not come with an uninstaller

    [00:05:51] that's one way, although it's better to use a special-purpose uninstaller

    [00:06:13] good to hear that.

    [00:07:21] huh?

    [00:07:33] erm yah, we're "close"

    [00:07:54] so can hbc "now" (ie a few days) also be installed on wii's that have been updated to 4?

    [00:08:11] i guess if u can install bootmii you can install hbc....

    [00:08:45] yah it can

    [00:08:50] dvdx too

    [00:08:52] mattgentl: yes.ÂÂdhewg wrote a unified installer for bootmii / HBC / DVDX

    [00:09:08] working on it as we speak :)

    i asked bushing if i'm allowed to post the info.
    All he wanted me to add was:

    [00:08:10] sure, just add "please don't bug us for a release date, we're working several hours a day on this as it stands"

    some more info:

    CODE[00:19:55] if you remove the SD card, it will just go to the system menu as if you never installed bootmii
    [00:20:01] Izhido: can't you set that in the card settings?
    [00:20:12] haven't found the option :(
    [00:20:28] so it isnt installing anything on the wii's nand?
    [00:20:31] you'll just have to patch the ds firmware to disable autoboot then :P
    [00:20:33] bushing: thank you so much! That's exactly what I wanted to hear :D
    [00:21:00] ya, i hope people will find this worth the wait
    [00:21:16] very much so
    [00:21:19] Elfish: no, I never said that.ÂÂit *has* to install something into the boot2 area, but that's just a small amount of code
    [00:21:25] most of the code sits on an SD card
    [00:21:40] if it can't load the rest of the code from the SD card, it just falls back to normal boot2.

    I have heard installing bootmii will break your ability to use backups and usb loaders. Any body can confirm this rumor?

    Can someone shed some light on why some wiis with 4.0 will work, but others won't? How do you tell which is which?
