    Thanks so much; after reading that, I think that I will definitely not do 0.5-- hopefully a new version will be out, at some point, with a resolution. 0.4 sounds like the much better option.

    Sorry to dig the topic over but... Even reading previous threads/posts I did not understood.

    As it is referred at Darkcorp, my wii does have a questionable past (it is not virgin).
    And I have heard around that installing Priiloader at a heavily sofmodded Wii is very inadvisable.

    I want to know if may I install Priiloader even after softmoddin' my wii as I did?
    The risk of bricking it is high or low?

    I'm absolutely sure i have the following:
    "HomeBrew Channel, BootMii, cIOS 222, cIOS 249, and USB Loader GX"
    Since I have followed a wii hacking guide. (I've just quoted Darkcorp, never used it)

    Some other IOSes patched, as well. Nothing far from the usual...
    I can post a System Check, if necessary

    that all sounds like basic stuff that most/all of us have on ours also. My unofficial opinion says you shouldn't have an issue. I know I have more then that and my priiloader v4 works for the basic update hacks at least, plus other things.

    Yeah... I'm sure i have less modding than most people here... But i'm afraid of installing Priiloader AFTER having softmodded all of this...
    (from what i read, ppl usually install it before, so there's no risk)

    My process was following a googled guide many months ago (before finding this site) and downgrading. Months later (AFTER finding this site) I elected to follow a 4.1 update guide which involved priiloader (even tho I had what you have) and it has actually ended a LOT of grief for me. I feel much safer about being connected to the internet with it installed, and frankly, I never looked back.

    There are always risks involved when you apply a mod.
    You have to way up the pros and cons.
    The good thing is you have asked for people's opinions.

    Mine is, the current official release of priiloader is 0.5
    It has an online update feature. Does not require any patched ios, but will install with one.

    As with most software, current is being looked at, old is not dusted off.

    You have to make your choice.

    Priiloader 0.5 is no longer available for download do to the bug in the installer.
