    I've been away from the scene when bootmii arrived so now I think I should install it, but on the Readme it says that:

    Since I am neither of the two, should a regular user install it even though it is in it's beta stage? Will it be of use to me?

    You wont get bricked if you do a nand backup from bootmii. Don't be playing with cIOS jk [​IMG]
    It's just protection for the wii.

    No reason not to have extra brick protection in my opinion. Frankly I don't see why they have that warning since it's pretty hard to screw something up with BootMii installed even if you try.

    I'm neither of those as well and I've installed it fine. It's some good assurance to protect against Wii bricks, not to mention some lazy access to the HBC.

    The only drawback is no Wii remote support, so you'll have to not be lazy and fetch the GC remote. Although if you have a wireless one...

    Ok, it works fine but is there anyway to make it not appear during the startup (like Preloader)? I hate going all the way next to my Wii just to hit A on the GC pad.

    You can either edit the config file (set countdown to 0) or you could download a HBC app named BootMii Configuration Editor.

    Either rename the bootmii folder on your SD card or use the bootmii configuration editor app (it's somewhere in the boot2 section of the bootmii part of my guide) to set it to autoboot either the system menu or the HBC.

    rename the bootmii folder on your SD card to something else like "NOTbootmii". when u need to access bootmii, change the name back

    Alright, thanks for all those who helped. I just made a bootmii.ini file.
