    USB loader without install?

    Is it possible to use the banner bomb to just run the usb loaded and not install a homebrew channel?

    I think Im just afraid of making changes to the wii for fear of bricking.
    If you just load it from the banner bomb each time, you are not making any changes right?

    You'd still need to install cIOS 36 or 38 for USB loader to function though so in effect you would have to change it. The installer for HBC is quite safe. I've yet to see a Brick caused by HBC installs (maybe I will stand corrected on this).

    It's true that some people do brick their Wiis but from what I have seen it's mostly by installing updates incorrectly or by removing vital components of their Wiis software. HBC gives you power to modify your Wii, a power that should not be taken lightly.

    you wont have to update S you can just install the updates manually "which means you take out the system menu update and just install the essentials.)
    if you can't get a game 2 work the remade is some where in all these forms S
