    uLoader 4.XXX and NAND Emulation Question

    Hey Wiihacks. I am on a 4.2U D3-2 drive Wii and use uLoader to play my backups. The other day, I downloaded and installed the newest version 4.9C from this website:

    HOWTO: Install/Upgrade uLoader to version 4.9C for DVD & USB backup launching. (Offline and online methods)

    After doing so, I also noticed another posting by Adewii that talked about how one of uLoaders newest features was the ability to play Wiiware/VC titles through uLoader via NAND emulation:

    HOWTO: Play WiiWare & VC games via uLoader

    I also noticed that triforce has NAND emulation as well, and from the looks of it, it works pretty much the same way as uLoader's NAND emulation.

    Here is my question for you guys: I know that you are emulating your NAND from an SD card and not touching the Wii's own internal NAND. I noticed on GBATemp however that some games still produce system errors and stack dumps and require to reboot the Wii via their "matrix compatibility table":

    ULoader 4.X VC/WiiWare emulation compatibility - WikiTemp

    I was wondering if it is still possible in any way to brick your Wii by using and playing VC/Wiiware games off an emulated NAND via SD card? Has anyone used uLoader (or Triforce too) and actually encountered these types of errors when using an emulated NAND? I just don't want to mess up and possibly brick my Wii and want to know for certain that it won't brick if I were ever to get a stack dump or system error message by doing this...

    You know this looks a bit like spam to me. Sure you are asking things but why the need to post links to other guides, especially the first uloader one? Hope you got something good to tell me.

    Hey Oddgriffin, sorry about posting all the links - I just like to be specific with my problems and post links so people can "follow my footsteps" if you know what I mean? I know the first one probably wasn't necessary to answer the question, but I figure if people go there and read on how I updated uLoader, they could maybe better answer my question? (For instance, by going to the first link, someone would see that I am running uLoader 4.9C with specific cIOS's 222, 223, 224 etc.) I know when someone asks for help on here, you guys like specifics - so that's all I was trying to do is be specific

    Yes we like specifics, but we don't like "opening a can of worms" that come from users going to other sites to use guides that offer little or no support for them.
    When you post something like that in the newbie section, it is a magnet for ppl with low intelligence to go and mess their wii up with and expect us to fix.
