    Ok, I searched around on here and Google, but I couldn't find a true answer to my questions.
    I'm looking into installing Custom Themes on m wii but I don't currently have any brick protection.

    My 1st question is: what is the best brick protection for my wii? Preloader or Bootmii?

    My 2nd question: If I install either of those will it interfere with Startpatch?

    My 3rd question: Is there in option in either of those to backup my NAND?

    My 4th question: How long does it take to backup a NAND, does it depend on how much space I have left on my SD Card?

    My 5th question: Does Preloader or Bootmii support SDHC?

    Ok that all I have to ask...oh here is my Wii specs:

    LU33 (Dec' 07 or 06 can't remember) 4.0u, Startpatch installed with no copy flag + no disc update, cIOSrev8 installed (no point in having 9 or above since I don't have a USB Harddrive to be formatted into WBFS), Patchmii IOS254 installed, never installed cIOSCORP, and I think that's it.

    1. BootMii/boot2 > preloader.

    2. Dunno if preloader does, but BootMii does not.

    3. BootMii has NAND backup/restore.

    4. It depends of your SD cards performance. Normally it will took about 7 minutes (including verification).

    5. BootMii SD compatibility list / not sure about Preloader...

    Also note that your sd card you use needs at least about 528 MB or a little bit more for the nand backup. Mine was 540 MB.
