    I'm not sure what you're referring to... priiloader is intended to help out if you brick, not actually brick it.

    Having said that, if you have bootmii installed as boot2, you will be able to recover from virtually any brick.

    There was one release of priiloader that could cause issues, but it was discovered quickly and the release was removed. As far as I'm aware, there were only a small handful of people who had the issue. I don't rely on the googles for accurate technical data.

    Your questions about nand backups reminds me of this quote

    Because when it's done, it places The back up on the root of your sd card.
    Like so...SD:/Nand...SD:/Keys....SD:/Bootmii Folder

    Plus you would know because it appears on the screen (TV) as it's doing it and when it's done it lets you know.

    If you were not there when your Wii was softmodded, then you had someone do it for you?

    You may already have priiloader installed and not know it.

    Hold the reset button while powering on the Wii. If you get a white screen with a menu come up, then you already have priiloader.

    As for a nand backup, if you don't know where it is make another. It is good to make multiple backups and keep them in multiple places. You can look on your SD card for it. It will probably be in a folder named bootmii1 or something similar. The files will look like "nand.bin" and "keys.bin"

    EDIT - I went and looked at your system check, and you are missing some IOS. Also you cIOS are outdated. Take a look at the advice given by Jax here.

    Yes someone do it for me.Im dont know which guide is he used or even not sure he used a guide.

    No i have no Priiloader Installed.

    Yes best thing is doing a NAND Backup

    Yes jax says start from homebrew channel installed but Mauifrog says if you dont softmod your wii with this guide you must use chapter 1-2-3 too.Thats same as softmodding wii again.

    You can start the guide from the beginning if you want. Read it carefully a few times. Then when you start read carefully and take your time.

    When you are finished you will have the best softmod possible.

    P.S. - Don't worry about bricking. I have followed the guide over a hundred times on over a hundred Wiis and never had an issue. And with being able to install bootmii with boot2, your Wii is invincible. I have bricked my boot2 Wii on purpose, just so I can unbrick it.
