    Arrow Priiloader help!!!

    I recently updated my firmware to 4.1E from 3.4E and wanted to install Priiloader. I have a LEH251 console. Are there any risks of using it (like a brick)???

    I have bootmii beta4 as ios and no gamecube controller. So i can't restore using restoremii. I watched a video to recover from a brick by installing ios wad and sysmenu 3.2 wad using wad manager accessed with priiloader. Is it safe to use it on my console??? Can the 4.1 menu be installed directly???

    Also, link a guide to install priiloader on my console...

    Thanks in advance!

    Priiloader prevents bricks by skipping disc updates and out of region games.

    Bootmii is the recovery method, as boot2 you can restore your complete nand from a brick.
    As IOS its not so good. If you have some corrupt files you can restore with bootmii IOS but not from a bvrick.
    Its still useful to have a backup even though its bootmii IOS.

    when installing bootmii as boot2, does it have to be on a separate SD card?

    No, if your system lets you install as boot2, it will create a bootmii directory on your SD card. These files can then be stored on your Pc for future
    use.
    Some people use a separate card and then store it in Fort Knox.

    I installed Bootmii as an IOS but it created a bootmii folder on my sd card with some files in it.

    Yes thats right. You can now do a nand backup, with IOS you can start bootmii from the HBC.

    These three are for running bootmii.
    armboot.bin
    bootmii ( a configuration file)
    ppcboot.elf

    To restore you should have nand.bin and keys.bin.
