user bricked. (I'm lost)
I have been on Google and this site for all most 7 hours trying to get to play burnt games i figure its time to ask for some help.
I just got my Wii today the menu is 4.0u I have managed to install hackmii_installer_beta2 with the bannerbomb aad20_v108. I have the homebrew channel, the Homebrew browser, and bootmii. My question is what do I have to do to play backup wii games? I've been on so may sites I don't know what to think any more some places say you can do it with 4.0 and some say you have to downgrade and you could brick your wii doing this.
Are you sure you looked? I Found this in like 2 mins. Try this tut out.

The Lightlyhood of you bricking your wii is unlightly, it would happen if the power went out when your instaling a wad r that. Look up Wiibrew on google and go to Applications and go to loaders and have a look through it. It will help you get an inside view to what your doing and google should do the rest.
You don't have to downgrade... visit the Tutorial section on this forum, it says pretty much everything you will ever need.
Any way seems you re halfway there.. You need to get yourself a cIOS and a BackupLoader, navigate to the tutorials and learn what all these are, read the guides and understand them... then do as they say!
Dvd+r i heard do work but you need to bookmark them as Dvd-r. Also burn at the lowest speed possible. But the rest of the tut looks v good. But Bootmii, Starfall etc is recomended because if something does go wrong you have a fallback.

Fluid's seems rather old, so find a new one... I would recommend this one:
but read all of them to be sure...
@Swishgav: "The Lightlyhood of you bricking your wii is unlightly" i think you mean "likelihood" and "unlikely"... also, Wiibrew.org does not host loaders...finally, one should not trust what he does not know..
Wow don't follow any guide you find man you will brick your wii!! be careful!!
Sorry for being dislexic! see if i spelled that right. And i did say that wrong, i ment to say where the Gecko Os loader is bt i didnt say that they hosted them, i just said look them up there. And if one did not trust what they did not know a very limited mount of people would have installed anything on there wii because they never did it before, a lot of people dont know what IOS's are or any of that. They just do what there told by other people....
Yep i know i was this kind of person until some days ago but i sat down and read every single post and learned. People should not just do what they are told they need to learn how to do stuff and why to do it, or else they will come crying that they bricked their wii... Things are being explained in this forum one should search!! Everything one needs is posted in this forum.. just don't go around and give false advice to people...
