When i boot in to bootmii (boot2) i wanna change channels but it will not let me cuz when i press the power button to go right it turns off the system

Hello.:)

I am sure you have pressed the POWER Button briefly.
(I can press up to 2 Seconds on my Wii).
Turn the LED on the Wii to YELLOW or RED when that happens ?
It is possible for you to use an Gamecube Controller instead ?

Thank you,:)

He was politely asking for confirmation that you aren't holding down the power button to trigger a hard shut down. I'm not so subtle, lol. It's unlikely, so I doubt that's the issue.

I would try using a different SD card, and/or a different version of bootmii saved to your sd card, and/or removing the bootmii config file from the SD card. I don't know of any custom settings that could cause that kind of behaviour but just to be safe I'd delete the cfg file all together to make sure you're running default settings.

If none of this solves your issue you may have some kind of hardware problem which is out of my area of expertise and probably not worth the investment to repair anyway

    I haven't been gaming for such a long time. Been mostly busy with sleep, hardware tinkering and checking GBAtemp frequently.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Hope you've had a good morning.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    It's going alright thanks :) I know what you mean with gaming time. It's precious where I can get it these days.

    I think that's why I focus on just enjoying single player experiences that aren't too competitive

    How are you doing?
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    There's also this thing where I'm hyperfocused at night and cannot get to sleep.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, I'm doing alright, thanks.

    That must be rough. Productive I'm sure but hard to balance with daily life

    @Maximumbeans, Indeed. I've been working on getting this Infecutus chip to work on my PS2. But after soldering, I realised that a plastic piece was missing from the power ribbon cable to the power and eject buttons.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Now I could go with soldering the contacts from the cable to the connector on the mobo, but doesn't sound like a good permanent solution.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    Man, that's beyond my brain :rofl: I'm no good with hardware for now. I'd like to get into hardmods in future though
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Maybe start practice soldering. Get a cheap-ass soldering iron and follow some good YouTube tutorials.

    Least my experience has gotten better than over a decade ago. My iron would constantly bump into components and break them.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    Sounds good. I actually did soldering but like 16 years ago for school so uuuuh probably rusty haha
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Same here. I did soldering at school from a teacher who I honestly liked since he had plenty of good electronics experience.
