    Question softmodding 4.1E (help/advice needed)

    hi all.

    i have been thinking about softmodding my wii ( using this guide: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html )...

    the problem is that im a tad concerned about bricking it, so my question is this-

    if i brick my wii, will i allways be able to restore it to its "former glory" if i have a nand backup (bootmii) ?

    thx in advance

    If you have boot2 and not as ios then it is something like 99%.

    really ? =P .... thats great, now i might actually have the guts to try it =P ...

    usually i just do it and google for an unbrick if anything happens, but since the wii is my gfś i wanted to be on the safe side =P.

    Tu for the help.

    How old is your Wii? You can only install Bootmii as boot2 if it is old enough.

    I was pretty nervous when I softmoded my Wii so I know how you feel. What I would suggest to you is take your time and read the guide and skim through the thread and look at all of the people that have successfully softmoded. The Softmod Any Wii guide is an excellent and easy to follow guide with very little risk in bricking (there is always a chance). If your only option is to install Bootmii and an IOS then still do so and make a nand backup. If something was to happen then you could send your Wii to someone that can flash the backup backup into your nand and fix a brick.
