    Have you tried 0.4 final priiloader..?
    I have not tried it. I would suggest you follow this thread-
    Issues - priiloader - Project Hosting on Google Code
    This will follow any issues/bugs. Since priiloader 0.3b seems to be very stable, I don't see a rush to update.
    When you do update, you should be able to just run the installer. I would suggest you wait until you have a good reason to udpate though.

    You did actually read post #1?
    Bannerbrick is a bad custom wad, it is easilly fixed when priiloader is installed.
    There is no way I know of the check wad for a good or bad banner that I know, just get them from good sources.
    You can check ios, wiiware, etc using showmiiwads to ensure it is what you think it is. I could brick your wii easily by giving you a wad of sm 3 or other and call it this wiiware or that. You would see this in showmiiwads.

    On the 'older' wiis it is possible to install bootmii in both IOS and Boot2. However Ninty fixed the trucha bug in boot1 somewhere in 2008. Still trying to find the exact point they fixed it.
    However bootmii in IOS is still better than nothing. Also it gives you the oppertunity to backup your nand which everyone should do.
    In case of a full brick and nothing works anymore it would still be possible to restore the nand using a hardware programmer. This is my expertise
    If you think I helped you please click the little thanks button
    Send me a PM if you have any questions regarding unbricking with infectus mod chip or post a message in here http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-...installed.html
