    You can use a burned copy to install the Indiana Pwns hack, but you would need a modchip to use it.

    Why would you want it? Well it is one more thing to add to your list of options should you brick your wii, with RM functioning. It is an option with limited usefulness, but installing it is simple and risk free. You should install for your region.

    thanks again.

    so softmod -> burned lego copy would not work then in adding it? either modchip or real version would help then?

    what is RF?

    as for bricking, as long as i don't do anything stupid and do not update, i should be safe right?

    thanks maui.,

    You can load the lego hack with a backup. And yes, as long as you don't do anything stupid you should be fine. Sometimes people have bad luck, so there is always some risk. Just avoid dicking with your system menu and system ios as little as possible.

    RM= Recovery Menu= savemii/savemiifrii

    Thanks very much for this post! I was thinking of installing a dark theme for my system menu and had come across some guides on YouTube. It all seemed straight forward but I had no idea that it would remove my Priiloader. Seen as though when I modded my Wii I couldn't install bootmii as a boot2 I'm not going to bother taking the risk. Thanks for this!

    I will definitely follow this list; however, so I can avoid them, what are system menu theme packs?

    I almost installed a theme today. It would not download thankfully. Do I need any added protection or am I "safe" with priiloader and my system mod? Also I went into my system menu and changed the way my wii boots. It was booting to priiloader, I set it to system (wii) menu. Should I put it back to priiloader or just stay out of there?

    Booting into the system menu is fine.

    Only thing better than preloader/priiloader is boot2 bootmii. Just remember that system menu updates, and themes remove preloader/priiloader in the process of their install.

    Thank you. I tried using boot2 but couldn't with my system. I have to go back in and see if during the process of trying those themes I lost priiloader. The theme pages downloaded, but when I clicked on individual themes they couldn't download. Thank you so much for this very informative post.

    I could only use IOS (boot2 not available so I have priiloader). How do I identify a system theme pack? What do they look like?
