    Can I still Make a Brick if....

    HOpe this question is now in the correct forum... I am a newbie with a BIG Question....
    Ok call me chicken - I did ALL the steps in Messies Guide to hack 4.2 from A1-D5 then stopped -
    THEN I REMOVEd WAD MANAGER, Dop IOS MOD, Hermes_cios_installer, priiloader, cIOs38_rev14_installer, from the APPS folder -
    IS IT STILL POSSIBLE FOR MY WII TO GET TURNED INTO A BRICK?

    Step D6 with ios70 stuff scares me. My thought is this - ALL'S I WANT TO DO IS TO PLAY AND BACKUP GAMES TO MY EXTERNAL USB HD. THAT IS IT!

    IS THERE STILL A DANGER (THROUGH ACCIDENTAL WII ON LINE UPDATE) THAT I COULD MAKE MY WII A BRICK WITH OUT DOING STEPS D6 & D7?

    Or Can I stop where I am at and be safe for what I want to do????

    I guess I don't really understand what is happening with D6 & D7 - so it may make it seem more scary than it really is.

    But I am one to leave Well Enough - Alone.

    Or do I really need to do steps D6 & D7 to protect my wii in case of accidental update??????

    your patience with my ignorance is appreciated......

    Also - I dont' understand "exactly" what a "Banner Brick" is caused by. I know what a brick is - but what causes the "banner brick" everyone is talking about?

    I followed the steps to the mod I have and it works great. I found this one to be a little less confusing myself. As long as you follow the mod as it states and do not do anything stupid like accessing different apps/programs before you fully understand them, you will be fine. I mainly just use my usb loader for direct rips, with an occasional download and am very pleased.

    Not to sound stupid - but I think you used a different guide then me.
    Your's doesn't seem to list the ios70xxxxx.wad mod - did you have to go to wiki and copy the hacks.ini txt?

    And what are the Disk Updates they talk about that I must guard against?


    I am sooo confused.

    to answer the original poster question, ios70 patched needs to be installed before you install preloader so that you dont brick. if you skip 70 patched you will brick. preloader will block disc/online updates if you enable the hacks.

    Yes I used a different guide. That is what I was telling you.I found it to be a simplified process. I have the hacks.ini safeguarded as well as the rest of the programs on my mod. That file is the best I could get as far as brick recovery.

    I updated to 4.2(before I found wiihacks), followed this guide to the T and my Wii performs like it was made this way. I have seen many posts on here by people that think too much and vary from the guide, possibly get distracted who knows. = FAIL. Follow the guide and it will work.

    thanks for your help - one last thing - someone else here is saying that after the priiloader mod - wii fit + no longer runs. Have you found that to be true? I use that game - and I would hate for it not to work after I load priiloader.

    thanks again
