    Hi

    I have never tried to use backup games, but since I've got twilight princess as a present, I'm keen to try it, but I have a question. Can I in any way hurt my wii by using backups or is it completely safe?

    I cant say is completely safe but nobody here seems to have problems without a solution...

    so take your own risk [​IMG]

    I'll just say that my Wii has never even been close to any trouble and i've been playing backups since the loader was released.

    There is very little (if any) chance of you doing any damage to your wii by using either the backup launcher, or softchip.

    While I can't guarantee anything, what i said above held true in my experiences.

    Use Nero or Imgburn - Both very good apps for burning ISO's.

    the only damage i can see at moment with loaders.. is not getting the right WAD and bricking the wii if you don't take the correct steps.

    follow all the steps and recommendations and you should be fine [​IMG]

    So the danger is not using backups but installing the loaders wrong?

    Well if you install the loaders with WADs there are risks of bricking your wii (nothing unreversible)...

    If you load of the HBC thare are no risks [​IMG]

    For burning images use Nero at 4x like me, and you will no have problems.

    Just follow the steps to install everything and you will be happy [​IMG]

    make channels yourself to stop thinking about getting untrusted wads!
    and you should always be prepared all the time anyway....simple

    Well you need to use a 2gb or smaller SD, (well you actually can use SDHD with HC but i dont trust in those)

    i think thats the only specific caracterist.

    Just wondering - can a bad ISO cause your Wii to brick?

    No, if you burn a bad ISO it just dont run.

    If you dont wanna update just install starfall (if you have modchip)

    If you play with gamma or softchip the game wont update [​IMG] .
