    from what I understand it is not needed BUT some new game will need the system menu hacks to work.

    Good question. Im on 4.2 too. I know it can be used to restore the nand file if you ever get bricked via bootmii but at the same time Ive read that it is not recomended to do so if you have 4.2.

    Priiloader is not required to run backup discs, but it is strongly recommended that you install it for brick protection. It allows you to disable disc updates, DVDX checks, and only on 4.2 block online updates from running on your console. There are also a number of system hacks you can enable.

    Priiloader functions on 3.2, 4.0, 4.1, & 4.2.

    To install continue following the directions near the bottom of the 4.2 softmod guide.

    More information on Priiloader here.

    ok did you follow the full hacking guide for 4.2? it talks about this in step D7 it is a safty precaution to unbrick your wii and turn on these system menu hacks.

    My wii does not have this on it and it runs 95% of backups fine. I want it installed to acess these hacks now that I have been fooling around with the Wii for a few weeks now.
    So is it absolutly needed? No but i would recomed it it wont hurt anything just follow the guide

    Hope this helps

    No worries. Be sure you have installed ios70patched before you install Priiloader. Installing Priiloader first is where people get themselves into trouble.

    yeah me to i am not a pro at this at all i just thought i would relay my experiance so far for you.
    I am trying to get this working on my machine now so i went through the thought process that you are going through now.

    Good luck with your Wii
    BTW if you ever decide you want to play tony hawk ride you will need this. also if you buy a new game and it wants to update you are out of business. you will not be able to play them without the hacks.
