    I was looking at the update partition in the game "Resident Evil Archives [NTSC]" and found a file called "BOOT2-v2-64.wad.out.wad".

    LU64+ Wiis have boot2v4, which is what causing the problems on them. But no, don't install that boot2 on a boot2v4(LU64+) Wii, boot1 won't accept it even when it's correctly signed.

    Why do you feel the need to be so rude.
    Do you feel better when you talk down to someone else?

    Anyways if you see my name I would like it very much if you do not make any comments unless you want to be helpful.

    Thanks,

    No, that isn't the problem with LU64+ wii's, the problem is that on old wii's boot1 had the trucha bug and on LU64 wii's dont, and bootmii uses the trucha bug, which isn't present on invulnerable boot1's. And boot1 can't be updated by Nintendo, so the old ones will always be invulnerable, and the new ines will never be vulnerable. It doesn't matter what version of boot2 it has, it's the boot1 that matters.

    Sorry for being rude, but we already knew nintendo could update boot2, so your post was pretty meaningless. you didn't even mention any possible consequences or anything. you just said "i found xxx". you may as well have said "i found 10p" for all the good you brought to us.

    The comments that "beegee7730" and "WiiPower" are very helpful. It is people like this that make a good forum that helps people.

    We all need to remember that at one point in time we were at the point of not knowing.

    Exactly. We cannot change boot1 or boot2 only. It's a "pack" boot1 has to be "coherent" with boot2 (inverse is true too)
    And I really don't think we can change our boot1 (dunno with a NAND programmer)

    You can install another boot2, but i wouldn't do it. And i think that a boot2 downgrade from 4 to 2 is prevented.

    boot1 checksums boot2 on newer wiis. if it doesnt match, your wii is bricked. dont try it.

    yeah, but i'm pretty sure any newer official version will work. there just may not be a newer version yet than v4. but there probably will be in the next update to kill bootmii. which is stupid because "accidently" allowing bootmii would save nintendo the hassle of having to fix bricks.

    I'm guessing Nintendo make a lot of money from fixing bricked wiis with very little effort...that's probably why they wanna kill bootmii, probably has something to do with people taking more risks and improving homebrew/hacking because they can just always restore NAND.

    If i was nintendo, i wouldn't provoke TT. Ignoring TT, fixing bugs, closing security holes and all that is understandable and maybe everybody would do that. But if they would update boot2 in a way, that Wiis with BootMii would be bricked, i think TT would get angry. I believe they could find find ways to harm nintendo then, while still not supporting warez.
