    The install of the Homebrew channel can brick the wii? is there any story about something like this? using a modded wii with d2ckey i can play any game just via disc channel? what about error 002?

    It is very unlikely that the homebrew channel alone would brick your wii, but anything is possible. Your brick is going to come from further softmodding and almost always from doing something you should not have done. If you read and understand the guide presented here they are very safe. But sh*t happes, power goes out, net goes down, these things will brick your wii if they happen at the wrong time during softmodding. So if you are not will to risk your wii for the added features, don't do it. But I think most people would agree that the benefits are worth the risk involved.

    If you are going to only us a chip, be sure to stay on 4.1 firmware. 4.2 will kill region free at the moment. You will not have 002 error with mod chip, but may have black screen on newer games which require an updated ios, just update the ios from disk and you'll be fine. Games load from disk channel, but if you chip your wii you will need to use good disks and burn them good or you'll have errors. You should look into the new wode, it is chip that will load from usb and many others

    You would have to order it online, but I don't think it's available yet.

    No you should no get a 002 error. And don't upgrade to 4.2 or you won't be able to play regionfree games, but you shouldn't brick.

    I don't think any hardmodded wii's receive error 002. Only softmods.
