    GX USB Loader - "Auto Patcher"

    Are you talking about forcing the video to your region? Why would you think that would brick you?

    Isnt it using an online connection to figure which region to use?

    For example:

    Downloaded super mario bros. {PAL}
    Tried to force it in PAL50 and PAL60, and the screen was black and white, and unframed.

    Then I ran it in auto patch, and it worked,
    so I guess I was assuming it was using an internet connection.

    If it was using an internet connection to run a mario game, I was concerned of a brick.
    Is it only possible to brick if : you update to newer firmware with HBC etc.. installed, and if you delete low-end IOS??


    Thanks

    Auto patch I believe just uses your default region of your Wii to auto force.

    Updating to newer firmware could cause a brick but not all the time. Updating to an out of region firmware will most definately brick you

    And yes your right, any IOS under 200 being deleted will cause a brick. Also a bad wad install will cause a brick.

    And the only way you could brick by updating out of region firmware would be to play a game which has a built in updater correct?

    Didn't about the bad wads though

    Yes, But if your using USB Loader GX it automatically scrubs the image before throwing it on your HDD. So it would have to be an unscrubbed disc of a different region.
