    Excuse poor English, myself is not very English literate. I have been looking forward to this bootmii by hackmii. Just wondering if it will be comming out recently?

    I've not noob, have modded numerous wii's with modchip or softmii. Just wondering if possible able to downgrade soon from virgin 4.0. I see banner bomb work, but await from bootmii.

    Bootmii been in works for 8months? no updates? is it real? why not they release beta test versions to public?

    please no flame, i know my english bad (thank you google translate). not everyone on the internet is from USA.

    Dude, there is no release date for bootmii, so do as I did. Forget it intil it get released.

    For now, be happy with preloader.

    PS: my english sucks too, fuck yeah

    Bushing posted some updates about BootMii about a month ago, and he said that a public beta will come out within a few weeks.
    But I wouldn't count on a specific release date, it will be done when it's done...

    I can't wait for bootmii, I have very high hopes for it, in fact I think I kind of expect a tad too much from it but I know it's going to be one hell of breakthrough in the Wii homebrew and hacking community once it's out.

    One of the things I hope talented coders and programmers manage to do in the bootmii environment is replace the Wii's NAND with an external flash drive or hard drive, basically have the system run off of an external device, have us install WADs and everything to that external device which would function as the NAND while the actual Wii NAND remains untouched and is only used for save games if that.

    I doubt that would be possible, but if done it could pretty much get the Wii to a point where it would be downright impossible to brick unless a malicious WAD or something is started on purpose since all the current functions of the NAND would be redirected to that external device.
    The entire external device or SD card doesn't have to be used, a partition the same as the Wii's NAND in size and everything could be made which would function as the NAND/internal memory.

    I'm probably getting way ahead of myself here and getting my hopes up too high, but here's hoping that happens.

    edit: btw, I'm willing to wait for it for as long as it takes, I don't like rushing things at all, I can wait for it another year as long as we get a clean, safe end product and judging by how serious the team is I think they're really doing us all a HUGE favor for not setting a release date or rushing development, people should learn to respect that.

    Nevermind...

    MINI (aka MINI Is Not IOS) runs on the arm processor of the Wii and allows homebrew development without the use of ANY Nintendo software.

    AWESOMEEEE!!!


    Seems like we want MINI not just BootMii...
