bootmii as ios is useless against bricking...priiloader 0.5&0.6 has the support for the new hbc id...so you can load to priiloader from there to hbc and fix the wii.....(except with full brick example install new system menu without installing the ios it uses first = priiloader gone and your wii menu wont load)
0.4 you have to load through installed title....
Let me try to clarify.
0.4 is very safe to install, 0.5 is not, as discussed.
Both give you the same amount of brick protection, ie. prevent disk and online updates, they also offer other benefits.
0.5 and above can be updated on line and 0.6 uses the new hacks_hash.ini.
Priiloader prevents bricks happening, having a nand backup whether boot2 or IOS will help if you ever get a full brick, that is why all good guides say do a nand backup regardless of boot2 or IOS.
Hope that helps, use 0.4.
Thanks WiiJohn, but I'm too chicken to go back to .4. With all the talks of bricking I'm not touching a thing - "if it ain't broke don't fix it".
I wanna make a new copy of my NAND, is it too late? My original NAND copy is a couple of years old - donno if I make a new one with all the hacks if it'll still be good.
You can make a new backup it doesn't matter the things you have installed. Make sure you have at least 524 free megabytes in your sd card
Yes it does. When you click on yes when its a online update it will bounce back an error saying can not update..... With discs it should just get rid of the msg. There are other benefits of priiloader so id 100% install it.
Thank you very much for such a prompt response!! is the priiloader difficult to install?? im a newbie and the only thing i've installed to date is the homebrew brower!!
no mate priiloader is quite simple just take your time to read the guide properly and dont skip any steps and you will be fine
