    I'm debating on unhacking my Wii or not since I can't have a boot 2.

    Is there ANY way to recover from a brick if something goes wrong with my cios installation?

    there r only 2 dangerous things u can do to ur wii... which is installing a new system menu or system menu IOS. (these are safe to install, but if they fail, freeze or lose power in the middle, u could be bricked)

    installing a cios is safe.

    if u have priiloader and bootmii as IOS, u can recover from anything as long is it isn't a corrupted system menu or system menu IOS

    just throwing this out there because this is how most people brick their wii- dont uninstall system menu ios's. if you delete the wrong ones with bootmii installed as ios, you pretty much have to get a new wii.
