    Question quick prevention to brick question and...

    ok as your post suggests if you cant install bootmii as a boot2 and only as an ios u wont be able to recover from a brick correct? question is what if im only using my wii as an emulator playing roms etc.. and back up games of wii and gamecube? will i be at risk of a brick if that is all I want to do?


    Thank you all so much for any answers I may recieve. I really love this forum it has helped with alot of answers I was looking for and I will be donating money seeing as you saved me alot of dough from sending it in to get a modchip. Any other help or suggestions I might recieve would be great.

    Just so you know I have installed the wiihomebrew page and bootmii as IOS. Quick question to add is will I need to keep the files on my sd card to run homebrew channel and run my emulators etc...? or just the emulators and roms i want to run? also for running wii games do i need anything else extra to run them off of dvd-r? Or is what I did all I need to do. Thanks again ^_^

    Make a back up of your nand and install priiloader.
    Back up games will not cause a birck unless they ask you to update and you do.

    Installing non tested wads is the most comon way to brick a wii.

    There is a great post on here by mauifrog he is the mutts nuts when it comes to brick prevention

    Probably not. But you should install priiloader. It won't hurt.

    The only two ways I know of to brick a Wii are

    1. Auto update after modding your Wii.

    2. Messing with any ios under 200 when you don't know what you're doing. Such an instance might be deleting one of them. DON'T EVER DELETE AN IOS UNDER 200!!!

    Of course I'm still a bit of a noob but as far as I know as long as you stay away from doing these two things you should be fine.

    --------------------
    Edit

    Ok, so obviously becksterorange and wiimaster4eva know more than I do. But I do know that you can brick your Wii by doing either of these.

    You probably need to restore the Trucha Bug.

    Or, you're not on the right firmware. Are you using preloader, or priiloader?
