    Is there a game that can brick you from a dump.

    I have a black wii that came with 4.3u and have successfully follwed the guide to mod an Wii by Maurifrog. I have a compatible external HDD and I plan on buying and playing only games sold in the United States, so is there any game that will brick my Wii when dumping from Wii dvd drive to HDD onto WBFS format, anthting I should be aware of because I have done alot if reading and didn't see anything but wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything???

    Just dont ever update from nintendo. Maui's guide does an excellent guide at preventing that.

    Ripping games to your hard drive is a low-risk activity.

    There are no games that will brick you. Bricks are not caused by installing games on your HDD. It's not even possible so you are worrying a bit much!

    Still won't brick your Wii....Just lead to problems playing it. I guess at worst you could corrupt your HDD but still not brick your Wii. Whether retail or backup, disc or HDD there are no games pirated or otherwise that will brick your Wii.

    Just take your time and keep reading like you have been and take it slow and you'll be fine. no worries. I suggest a full fat32 instead of wbfs format for your HDD though.. but thats all opinions.
