    EDIT by suggestion**************THIS ONLY WORKS IF YOU HAVE BOOTMII INSTALLED AT BOOT2... NOT AS IOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    so yeah.. I got drunk and felt like fucking some shit up.. so I took one of my two wii's and tried everything I could to brick it.. deleting system menu... installing half of IOScrop v2... using anytitle deleter to delete anything and everything I could... AND BEHOLD!!! ULTRA brick....

    put bootmii card in... restore NAND... BAM... back to perfect... I love this software!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    yeah I know this has been shared before... but this is the first time I purposely decided to try and fuck up the wii as much as I could... I did not succeed beyond Bootmii's capabilities!!!

    IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY INSTALL BOOTMII NOW!!!

    disinhibits fear... I am a stout drunk.. it takes a lot... yeah call me an alcoholic if you want.... but at least I was able to quit smokin weed cold turkey after smoking 6-8 times a day for 6-7 years!!

    and for the record.. I don't get "plastered!" but thanks for the advice vidboy... btw... I really appreciate your efforts on restoremii!!!... though slightly undocumented.. It was a really great attempt and contribution to the scene! seriously! IOS60 patched and system menu 4.0 in one! not bad for a kid your age!

    Thanks, even though i thought RestoreMii was pretty shitty after a while.
    Now i just stick to making guides.

    You need a warning in the first post so the Bootmii-IOS kids don't try doing this whole bricking thing cause their Wiis won't be able to handle all that bricking without actually breaking like ours can.

    Bootmii is awesome

    With bootmii you can also change firmware versions whenever, I have a two backups of my 3.2E NAND and I'll make one tomorrow of my 4.0E now that i updated it, so in case there's ever a need to go back to 3.2 I can just restore that NAND and all will be back to 3.2, then instead of going through all the installation stuff i could just pop my 4.0 backup in and install that.

    Just keep in mind you'll lose any progress you've made on savegames by using an earlier NAND backup, so use the Savegame Manager on any games you've played since backing up beforehand.

    Almost anyone with common sense would not attempt this with an IOS'ed bootmii.

    never forget, bootMii might be a good brick protection but it _doesn't_ make your Wii 100% unbrickable. Installing a broken boot1/2, changing boot1, or anything related to that (ie "formating" the NAND) will completly brick your Wii and bootMii won't help you in those cases.
    So don't go on random deletion rampages

    I don't think reformatting the memory would break BootMii, since all that does is get rid of channels and savegames and such. Still, that option has only ever caused trouble to people with the HBC so it should be avoided.

    well using the format option in the Wii doesn't get rid of bootmii as far as i know since it doesn't touch the boots.
    I never used anytitledeleter but does that have access to boot1 and 2? If it does then people could still get some major bricks there, they should make boot1 and 2 accessible only with some serious warning and a password in anytitledeleter assuming it can access them.

    Nice! What about if i install preloader and bootmii as an IOS? (Since i can't install it on my wii as boot2). I could go into preloader -> hbc -> bootmii -> restore nand?

    honestly I wouldn't try it (randomnly deleting shit!!) without bootmii installed at boot2.. if ios60 gets messed up.. so does preloader..

    if you have a partial brick you can always restore with various homebrew tools through preloader => homebrew channel...

    ONLY BOOTMII INSTALLED AT BOOT2 can prevent 99.99999% of bricks!!!!!!!

    AnyTitle Deleter does have brick protection against those titles, but it's possible to compile a version that doesn't by removing some code from the original source. I've never programmed anything, but I was easily able to compile a version of it with no brick protection against the System Menu and its IOS. I don't ever remember seeing boot1 and boot2 as accessible titles on AnyTitle Deleter, though, so those should be safe.
