    Should I leave preloader as the initial boot? I kinda want to forward to the System Menu (and I know holding reset on boot gets Preloader Menu)... But if my system menu bricked would that trick still work? And are the "System Menu Hacks" like moving the disc channel "safe". Sorry if these are noobish questions, I just want the safest (and most cosmetically appealing ) way to have a soft modded Wii.
    Yes i had a system menu that was corrupt i just reset the wii and it booted to preloader i changed the ios back to 249 and it worked fine .Yeah system menu hacks are safe you also should enable skip disc update too, if you haven't already done so.

Anyone know what's up? I use Ocarina completely disconnected from WiiConnect24 occasionally (freakin' 150cc!), but when I go online I always remove the app completely from the SD for precaution... I've been fine so far, but I use Wii Connect 24 so much it would really suck to get and IP/Wii ban from the Ninty servers...

    What normally happen is a wad or game is release and it will have a certain error so you get these "waves" of people with similar errors.
    Having Homebrew channel will not get you bricked unless one total messes up the install some how like turning it off during install or something stupid.
    Cheating will get you banned,but as long as its not active on the game playing you shouldn't have a problem.
    LISTEN TO ME!.... at your own risk.T&C may Apply.

    Thank you, so using Ocarina while completely disconnected from WiiConnect24 won't cause any side-effects when I head back online? I've tried to avoid using cheats in anything that posts to the leaderboard though... i think Nintendo would be a bit suspicious of someone finishing Rainbow Road in under 2 mins (or 00:00.159 seconds!) in a time trial.

    And is there any way through Preloader to get my Standby "blue-lights" back?! It sucks I have to have my Wii on to get my invites now.
