What is the highest serial number of the Wiis that have the vulnerable Boot1?
there's no known correlation between SN's and boot1s. Obviously a LU64+ wii won't be vulnerable, but some below that aren't either.
You mean boot2 right? Generally below LU64 (that is, not counting LU64) is a safe, bet, but it's not a sure thing.
And I thought BootMii is counting on a vulnerable boot1 to install istelf. :/
it is. The other guy is just confused.
Is S/N LU59xxxxxxxx boot1 vulnerable?
Yeah sorry, you two are right. -.-;
sorry for the double. that's what happens when you have 20 torrents going... >.
My LU58 Wii does not have a vulnerable boot1. Your mileage may vary, though. (The HackMii installer will prevent a BootMii boot2 installation if it detects the f01e boot1.)
actually they (Nintendo) fixed the bug in the boot1 much sooner then they came out with the lu64fix or whatever people call
I have a PAL Wii which has serial LEH24 and it isn't boot2 compatible with BootMii
I asked this same question because I wanted to buy a used Wii on Ebay since my Wii was too new for BootMii. Everyone said it didn't matter. From all the posts I read, it seemed most Wii's in the LU3XXXXXX range were OK. I bought a used Wii with Serial LU318XXXXX and sure enough it could handle the full BootMii. I don't know if that's the highest but it worked for me.
LU62 here, and cant install as boot2
Well, I did have one wii before my current refurb from nintendo. The one I had, was LU5248xxxxx, and was capable of boot2 bootmii, but was hard bricked. My current refurb is LU6021xxxxx, Not boot2 bootmii capable.
LU1014 and mines capable of boot2 bootmii
according to TT the unvulnerable boot2 came out around june or july 2008...!!
I got something reaally strange!
My Wii has serial LEFxxxxxxxx => can't install boot2 version of bootmii
My friends Wii has serial LEHxxxxxx => HE CAN INSTALL!!!
How come this? both run 3.2E!
how did nintendo know to fix the boot1 before bootmii came out?
thats always confused me, i'm not an expert with my bootmii knowledge yet XD
The LEH series is older than the LEF series. Both of my Wii's have LEH, while one of them is from the first quater 2007 and the second was purchased somewhen mid-2007. A friend of mine buyed his Wii 4th quarter 2008 and has a LEF serial.
LAH1xxxxx here (PAL) and can install as boot2 fine, although it is a launch wii so i would be worried if it couldnt.
as already mentioned though, this doesnt really mean much, as S/N doesnt have anything to do with it. your best bet is to get a wii manufactured before 2008 to guarantee its going to work. TT say that nintendo fixed the problem mid 2008, but thats also to be taken with a grain of salt, as some made after this work, and some before dont.
