    How would you install a wad safely?

    Question.

    How would you install a wad safely, and in the event of a banner brick, how would you recover to the previous state?

    1. Only install wads from a trusted source cause a bad wad can give you a banner brick.
    2. Make sure you have priiloader installed in case of a brick. Here is a guide that will show you how to do that.
    3. You need to get wadmanager1.4 and put it in the apps directory of your sd card. (sd/apps/wadmanager/boot.dol)
    4. Put your wad files in the wad directory of your sd card (sd/wad/*.wad)
    5. Boot up your wii and launch wadmanager through HBC.
    6. Select ios 249 to perform installation (if not already selected)
    7. Navigate sd card/wad and select your wad file. Press A to perform installation. When installation is finished press the home button to return to HBC.
    Warning, do not uninstall ANY IOS LOWER THAN 200!!!
    8. Return to wii menu to see your new channel.

    In the event of a banner brick (due to a bad wad)

    1. Press and hold the reset button while you power up the wii. This will bring you into the priiloader menu.
    2. Select and boot into HBC.
    3. Load wadmanager and select ios249
    4. Navigate sd card/wad and select the offending wad.
    5. Use D-pad to switch between install and unistall set it to uninstall.
    6. Press A to perform uninstallation
    Warning, do not uninstall ANY IOS LOWER THAN 200!!!
    7. press home button to return to hbc. Return to wii menu.

    If for some odd reason you are unable to uninstall the wad with wad manager, you can use anytitle_deleter_mod to unistall that bad wad(channel). Here again do not uninstall ANY IOS LOWER THAN 200!!!
