    I had found this wad in a old game disc :
    BOOT2-64-v2.wad

    My BootMii is v4, so what could happend if I install this? At first I thought I will have a Boot2v2 and be able to install BootMii, but that's is not possible, well I'm a noob so... does someone know about it?
    Thanks!

    PD: This is just for curiosity, I don't want to brick my Wii, that's why I don't install it, and sorry if this was discussed before.

    Nothing should happen, since boot2 is not actually stored on the NAND filesystem, but instead on the very first NAND blocks. Most modern WAD Managers shouldn't allow you to "install" it, in any case.

    Boot2 cannot be downgraded once updated.
    Whether you can install Bootmii@boot2 or not depends on the version of your boot1, not boot2.
    (Boot1 cannot be changed without bricking the console)

    a wad named boot2 does not automatically mean it is for Bootmii.
    You never know what it is until you install it.... but may GOD bless you if you really try to install it.
