    Can Starfall be used to autoboot recovery discs/games in error 003 or full brick?

    Hi everyone, I want to softmod my friends wii, & I'm taking precautions to make sure it isn't bricked. In case of an error 003 or full brick I would like to install starfall as I've heard it can autoboot games/homebrew discs like these:

    Brick Fixing Disc's - GBAtemp.net

    Is this true?

    Thanks

    You won't brick with Error 3. The best defense is BootMii @ Boot 2 (and Priiloader works as a good combo). If you can't get @ Boot 2, someone else may have to chime in here (I wasn't aware this feature existed except in certain hardmods).

    Edit Error 003 exists to my knowledge only in Korean Wiis crossflashed to US versions on System Menu 4.2

    Not quite error 003 can randomly occur when updating to 4.2 in 1 in every 5000 wiis modded or virgin. But my question still hasn't been answered I would like the convenience of loading recovery discs but without needing a modchip.

    Quote from WiiBrew:

    Using a recovery disc
    This requires a modchip and/or Starfall installed, as even with the Savemii dongle, the recovery mode normally only boots Nintendo repair discs. With Starfall the disc check can be bypassed; with a modchip this allows you to boot recovery software from a disc. If you don't have a modchip, but do have a copy of the Twilight Hack save already in the Wii, and an authentic Twilight Princess disc, you can use this to boot recovery software as well.
    (With Starfall installed, hold Y to boot a disc in recovery mode.)

    The next thing would be bootmii, but I do not understand what is meant by "bootmii as boot2?!" What is bootmii anyway?

    Twilight hack stopped working with 4.0 and up Wiis though. BootMii is a utility that can load before pretty much anything in your system does; it's a means of recovery if you have Boot2 access. If your Wii is newer than 2 yrs old, you won't have Boot2 access. See wiibrew here for a more complete explanation.
