    Nothing against the developer. Just against the problem this app causes...people come here to get help with it after it messes up their Wii. I wish this thread wasn't started LOL.

    Don't use it people, there are much better ways of getting the SAME job done.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    I love Pimp My Wii. I spent so much time with so many different tutorials, when I found Pimp My Wii, it worked flawlessly and got everything up and running as the tutorials should have in the beginning.

    The problem with Wii modding is there are too many tutorials, too many Youtube videos, and all the processes are not clear because they are not up to date. I have modded my Xbox years ago so I do have a great idea for it, and the technical know how, but with different Wii versions, different hack methods, things just get messy. Pimp My Wii made it easy.. which is what I needed! Maybe having a black Wii 4.3 made it harder, but still, its working

    But, as far as calling it "Brick" My Wii..... any mis-use of ANY tutorial or program can brick your Wii. That's why there are warnings for every method, correct?

    Just as a suggestion to anyone reading this. Take a look at who is advising users not to use it and those that saying that it's safe. Most andvising not to use it are Moderators that read many, many topics on this subject and witness first hand the harm that it can do. just because it works for some, doesn't mean it will work well for everyone. There are better solutions for updating IOS's and such than BrickMyWii.

    That's why you come here and don't follow random youtube guides.

    I will not argue about it, use it if you want. There is a reason we don't recommend it. Everyone is free to do as they choose with their Wii and we are free to call it Brick my Wii and not recommend it.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    I saw the tutorial

    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...mod-guide.html

    Many times. But when it says "4.3 = FAIL" several times, and I have 4.3, what should I thinking? I was thinking that having 4.3 wont let me softmod at all, and the guide explains how to get system menu 4.1, and when I read other guides, downgrading was one of the main issues with bricking the Wii. So, unfortunately, I just couldn't use the guide here.

    A user accepting the update from a lower version is perceived as someone who doesn't have their Wii's best interests at heart. Banner bomb won't work, 4.3 now requires a specific original game (either Indy Jones Lego or SSBB) in order to softmod.
