    Ok lets be honest!

    Wii modding is a scam isnt it?

    Nobody can really play backup games can they?

    Of course I am being a smart-arse but I just can't get one to play and I am about ready to give up. I have gone through the 4.2u section the best I can and still get the black screen after loading usb loader and neogamma.

    Besides that I have a panic attact between every click of the "A" button when Im installing, uninstalling, changing, patching, etc... I don't want a irreversible brick, but I am also worried about bricking during the preloader install.


    What the heck!!

    wow i didn't know there was a preloader available for 4.2. i wont do anything without preloader. think of this concept. if you get preloader installed and bootmi you will be able to back up the nand on your wii. ppl who don't softmod can't do that so in my opinion your wii is even more safe after the procees as you will be able to restore the data on the chip if something were to get messed up and others can't.

    Not all Wii's can install bootmii as boot2, some can only use IOS. So no useful nand backup for them.

    what i meant to say was that by softmodding and using programs like bootmi. you are able to actually backup the nand as opposed to someone who buys a wii and does nothing to it except install a channel and something gets messed up (sounds crazy but anything is possible).

    Preloader does work with 4.2 or else they would not have hacks for it.
