    Hello.

    A long time ago, in like 2009, I softmodded my Wii and installed Bootmii as boot2.

    I was wondering if Bootmii needs / can be updated, and if it is recommended to update it?

    If it is possible to update Bootmii, and it is recommended to, could anyone please link me to a tutorial so that I can make sure my Wii setup is up to date?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Connect to internet launch HBC will prompt for update if there is one install all three options

    If no internet launch HBC press home and look at the version of the HBC if it's not 1.0.6 then run the newest hackmii installer and install all three

    Also if you upgrade bootmii your old nand dumps may not work depending on what version you had. Shouldn't be a big deal though, just make a new dump.

    Old versions did not require keys.bin to restore, newer ones do I believe, hence the reason old dumps may not work.

    A good reason to update bootmii is because the HBC title id changed for SM 4.2 so older bootmii will not be able to launch newest HBC.

    Hm, my HBC is loading but when I go to Launch Bootmii nothing happens.

    And now bootmii is not on the SD Card...

    Does this mean I need to install Bootmii again?

    HBC is 1.0.6.

    GO into the hackmii installer and press Prepare SD card. It should create the bootmii folder on your sd.

    Ok so today I downloaded the hackmii_installer_v0.6.

    The following files/folders are included.
    Which files do I need to copy over to the SD Card, and where do I copy them to?

    - Sorry for all these noob questions, I have been out of the scene for ages. -

    that would be an even better response!

    I wonder... am I becoming TOO nice? Maybe I should add some 'foez' attitude to my daily regimen of giving wii advice, lmao
