    Question Help installing Priiloader on 4.3u softmod. Do I need to restore factory settings?

    Noob here,
    I recently did this tutorial on my 4.3u wii:
    Removed

    I want to install Priiloader and Bootmii so that I not only block system updates, but also recover from a bricked wii in a worst case scenario. Will I have to restore to the factory settings to do that since I've already installed custom IOS files? What's the best way to restore?

    First, we discourage posting links of any sort to guides that our not included in our site.

    Second, we have guides to softmod your console. There is no need to virginize, it will update your modifications and install brick protection.

    Just follow the Softmod ANY Wii guide. It will overwrite your existing mod, so no need to worry about "restoring" or anything like that.

    In that tutorial I shouldn't have linked to which used the letterbomb installer, it had me install:
    IOS 236
    D2X, a custom "IOS" system

    Is that going to be an issue? I've followed the guide you've mentioned but stopped at Chapter 2. I didn't know if the D2X, being a custom IOS system would have conflicts with any new IOS I install.

    Will it?

    The anywii guide installs everything you might need. You'll be fine. Anything not from Nintendo is a custom ios, you'll be installing quite a few of them.

    Might consider reading the newbie guide in my signature.

    Cool, thanks. I just have a terrible fear of bricking my Wii and then my kids wondering why it doesn't work any more, haha.

    The only thing to fear, of course is:


    But you are wise in being cautious... I simply couldn't resist is all

    I'm afraid of clowns and man-eating plants, and maybe if Herman Cain becoming president.
