    Hi, my Wii started freezing up a year after installing the HBC and cIOS for using USB Loader GX so I was trying to narrow down on what could be causing it.

    I modified my Wii haphazardly by following YouTube tutorials (before coming here) so I'm pretty sure I installed unnecessary cIOS, but it doesn't seem like that would cause the freezing.

    I have suspicions about the freezing being connected to boot2 because I used to have PriiLoader on boot2. Once the freezing started happening, I installed BootMii on boot2 so I could restore the NAND I backed up, but after that installation the Wii seemed fine...until now. It's showing the same progression as before where the freezing becomes more frequent.

    Now I'm thinking of restoring my Wii to point in time BEFORE having BootMii as boot2. Will this work?
    I read up that boot2 is part of the NAND (http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Hardware/NAND) so I'm guessing I can't restore using that NAND dump.

    If you need to see any SysChecks or need any other information to help me out, please let me know.
    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    Restoring a nand dump will never remove bootmii installed as boot2

    Thank you very much for the reply, that was the only uncertainty stopping me from doing the restoration.

    I don't want to celebrate too early, but I've left it running for a while and it seems to be working fine now.

    Thanks again. :)

    You're very welcome!

    Edit: and if u ever want to update old mods, or mod a new wii from scratch, use ModMii (by yours truly), it's the preferred method and a stickied thread in these forums
