== How it works ==
The BootMii Platform is a [[boot2]] hack, which is loaded by [[boot1]], which is loaded by [[boot0]]. [[boot0]] is part of [[Hollywood]] and read-only. [[boot1]], although stored on the [[NAND]], is signed by a value in write-once memory and therefore cannot be changed. [[boot2]], however, can be modified. This means it can be hacked, updated, and corrupted. BootMii hacks [[boot2]], and allows running code directly from SD Card, before anything else is loaded. This has many advantages, such as making it very difficult to [[brick]], and slowing Nintendo from blocking homebrew. Unfortunately, the only way we could completely stop Nintendo from blocking homebrew is by patching updates on-the-fly, or somehow preventing overwriting [[boot2]]. Wii Menu 4.2 Fixes the bug found in boot1 on older wiis and completely removes it if it is installed if you update from a previous version; Which means if you downgrade from 4.2 and it bricks you there is no getting it back.
