    I have had a 3.4 wii for the longest time, at least for a couple years now.

    I have bootmii as boot2 and I still want to keep this as boot2.

    I want to use Priiloader too (mainly for its hacks), but as I recall, I would need a 4.X system menu to take advantage of them.
    Which means I would have to update, which means I'll probably face the risk of bricking updating the boot code.

    So my main question is, can I use the priiloader hacks at system menu 3.4? If I decide to update, how can I bypass the boot2 portion of the update?

    BEFORE ALL MODIFICATION BE SURE TO HAVE A NAND BACKUP VIA BOOTMII

    You could use Pimp my Wii, Multi Mod manager , dop mii or NUS Downloader to install latest IOS

    - Install IOS58 with IOS58 installer
    - Upgrade HBC to 1.08
    - Install latest cios 249 , 222, 223 etc ... the one you need
    - Upgrade your IOS with your favorite apps, Pimp my Wii 2.02 update all your stuff : ios, cios, channel, system menu ...

    Then install the system menu you want via wad manager or Pimp My Wii ... i use 4.3 without problem be sure to install HBC 1.08 first, you could re-enable bannerbomb with priiloader hacks

    Install prilloader 0.5 and use this hacks.ini it's compatible with any 4.x version and all region ( put the hacks.ini file at the root of your SD card )

    Should be pretty straight forward especially since I have kept up with the wii scene for the last couple of years. Thanks, you rock.
