Confused why I DIDN'T BRICK...?
Okay, so I was being careless with .wads... I had a whole bunch of custom VC I was installing using WAD MANAGER, and when I went back to the Wii Menu, I realized I had installed OVER the amount of space the Wii has on the NAND (which usually results in some form of brick from what I've heard)...
Instead... The System Menu (4.1U) politely informed me "The System Memory is Beyond Capacity, please go to data management..."
I deleted the last two VC .wads I installed and everything appears to be fine... But I know I went a good 30 blocks over NAND capacity at least.
How did I NOT BRICK!?!
