    Hi guys looking for a little help. not quite and n00b but been out of the scene for a good while. (first kid)

    the misses is looking to start using the wii again after it has sat for a while.

    it s currently running 4.0E i am pretty sure i am running wiikey v1 but it could be v2

    I am also pretty sure i used bootmii to create a backup of my nand.(i have a couple of files on my sdcard, the most important i believe are nand.bin which is 540,673.KB, in size and a folder named "rename to bootmii" )

    i also have a installer.log file. which reads and hackmii v0.2

    there are lots of errors in it though such as
    Code:
    WARNING: ECC failure at page 219
    WARNING: ECC failure at page 220
    WARNING: ECC failure at page 221
    WARNING: ECC failure at page 222

    then

    If your on 4.0E and update to 4.2E or 4.3E then your bootmii as boot2 will be overwritten.It can be reinstalled though again after you update.

    EDIT:

    If you update through nintendo it will be overwritten.
    If you update using a guide on this board then it will not be overwritten.
