    Virginize or Resoftmod???

    Ugh. Here's the back story. I modded my Wii. Then I discovered I should have made a Wii's NAND backup. I want to start over and follow ShadowSonic2's guide but, I just read here that virginizing my Wii just to softmod again could cause a brick. I was following DogEggs' guide and got as far as installing IOS60-64-v6174.wad.

    Now after reading conflicting sources, I have absolutely no idea of what to do! Should I just follow ShadowSonic2's guide and resoftmod? Will resoftmodding after installing IOS60-64-v6174.wad from DogEggs' guide brick my Wii? Will virginizing just to softmod again brick my Wii?

    I'm almost to the point where I'm afraid to touch my Wii, like I've got King Midas's touch, only I turn things into bricks!

    Thank you very much for your help,
    BugWii

    Does that mean that the install of IOS60-64-v6174.wad WILL NOT brick my Wii IF I follow Shadow's Guide from top to bottom? I know IOS under 200 are NOT to be tampered with and I am not sure what changes I made when I installed IOS60-64-v6174.wad. There was no explanation as to what it does. I've hardly used my Wii so I don't want to brick it before I tap into the wealth of homebrews.

    Why have u used dogeegs guide if u r on 4.2? To answer your question, no it shouldn't brick because u will not be uninstalling the ios 60! but if u r on 4.2 it will be the patched ios 70 that u will be using.

    I assumed that when DogEggs' guide said" 4.2 Users: Install IOS60 before doing this guide," that the guide was usable for 4.2 Users. I haven't seen anything about IOS70 in his guide.

    This is silly. Install IOS 60 as directed. The purpose of this is due to 4.2 stubbing the IOS and if an educated user should downgrade (something no current wiihacks guide supports --- with exception to mauifrog's hardmod only 4.2->4.1 downgrade) that it won't brick you. Having it installed is a good thing, it won't hurt at all. Follow Shadow Sonic's guide, please.
