is pimp my wii just too powerfull for most users and that makes it easy for a noob to mess things up or is it truly junk?
if it is junk, then manual updating is the prefered method using the ios as wads from another guide i saw here on wiihacks?
Anything automated has the potential to do something the author didnt foresee.
Before you do something with your System menu or IOS's you should understand what you are doing and why, rather than rely on an automated "1 click" solution that may not have been programmed with your Wii's current situation/setup in mind.
In regards as what to use, the answer is simple - dopmii and it will do it online, no need for wads.
If in doubt what to do, you post a syscheck (again from dopmii) and the people here can give you a solution tailored to your setup.

Im pretty certain it used to be, Ive not used it for a long time tho
As i recall there was an "easy" mode and "advanced" with advanced being as you describe, in which case you may as well use dopmii.
In either case, I've had to fix many Wii's after Pimp my Wii being used.

You are correct, its probably bias due to the type of user who would use Pimp My Wii.
Maybe they updated it and removed the "easy mode" or im confusing it with something else... hard to keep track at times of whats what.
Thanks for the further replies re pimp my wii. As I said before, I was advised to use it to update my system and on reading about it, it said it would patch / update outdated Cios's etc. It did go through each one that it found outdated and asked if I wanted to update it. Obviously I knew the rule about not installing/uninstalling anything under 200, so I went ahead and risked it. Stupid, perhaps, but I took the risk hoping that bootmii would recover the drive if anything happened. In any event, I restored my wii from fully bricked by installing my wiikey 2 drive into another wii and soft modded it, so I felt at least the worst that could happen was to do everything all over again. But as I said, it did update the Cios's and all my games worked afterwards.
