    Just curious about boot2 with BootMii.. I've got a new LU64+ Wii and BootMii installed as IOS.

    Is it impossible for BootMii to run as boot2 on new Wiis? Or has the functionality just not been unlocked yet?

    Thanks =)

    You can't run it on newer wii's as boot2 because the exploit they were using relied on a boot1 vulnerable to the trucha bug, something the newer wii's have fixed.

    "Installing as boot2 is the most useful way to install BootMii, but it requires that we exploit a particularly silly bug in a part of the system that can not be changed under any circumstances. Nintendo finally fixed this bug in new Wiis that were released sometime in 2008. We have looked for a suitable replacement for this exploit, but have not found one, and it does not seem likely that anyone ever will." per bootmii
