    [Question] Getting my Wii safe?

    Hey Wiihacks people, I'm new to this site but not totally to Wii hacking.

    Without knowledge about any of these hacking sites, I've soft-modded my Wii by myself, took a bunch of risks but I've successfully modded it, working perfectly. I patched IOS36, installed cIOS 249 and 222 (I don't have anywhere here to put all my disks, so I just install them to my USB HD before you accuse me of piracy) and everything is working just like it should. However, I want to install a WAD for a few apps I use a lot in the HBC.

    The thing is, I am afraid as heck of bricking my wii, as I could not install Bootmii as boot2. I've heard somewhere that if I install Priiloader (which should work), it will boot before the System Menu, so I can launch the HBC and then launch Bootmii.

    I've chickened out of the Priiloader installer a bunch of times because I've heard there's specific versions for each Wii and blah blah blah and brick risks and etc.

    So basically... how do I know which Priiloader/Preloader version to get? Will it let me launch HBC and then Bootmii, potentially saving me from bricks? Is it too risky to install?

    Thanks,
    -Samuka97

    But is it true that by installing Priiloader, I can launch the HBC, then Bootmii and recover from a brick? (more specifically, a bannerbrick is what I'm afraid of, because I want to install a WAD)

    Bannerbrick can usually be fixed by loading Priiloader then HBC and uninstalling the bad wad...yes.
