I just soft modded my wii with system menu 4.2e following the excellent instructions from http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...tem-menus.html.

I would like to know if I let wii do the update from the settings menu, do I get a "virgin" 4.2e or do I get a brick? I followed the instructions all the way down including the priiloader install.

The reason for this is that I am afraid of bricking the wii by testing out game backups made by someone else.

I read about the Vode and thought that might be a safer way to run backed up games. Now I would just want to get the wii to an original state.

I noticed the tutorial about making a virgin wii but that tutorial was for older version.

Or maybe there is some good guide on how to prevent making the wii a brick and what to do if it bricks.
