    Hey guys, I want to give it a shot. Heres what I got on my 4.2E

    Bootmii as ios (WITH BACKUP, so possible to use nandprogrammer to reprogram it and I got keys ^^ )
    Priiloader( I plan to uninstall in first, then install dark wii theme, and after I installed it, I install priiloader back before I return to System Menu)
    Twilight hack (Yup, I copied the twilight hack on my 4.2E to my system and enabled to disable those checks)

    So. Is this safe enough?
    Or is it still RISKY, and not worth it?

    Yeah I downloaded 4.2E package.

    And yeah what if I dont like it, How do I revert it back to white theme? Lemme quess, you need to reinstall system menu? =_____________=

    WAIT. Why would you uninstall priiloader! Im pretty sure thats the last the youd want to do seeing as how you dont have BootMii boot2.

    If you have access to an infectus then go ahead.

    If you don't like it just reinstall the 4.2 sys menu.

    Installing the theme removes priiloader automatically, So why not uninstall it immidiately (maybe it crashes or something), and uninstall it right back when you installed the theme (You dont exit homebrewchannel)

    Why take the risk, if you don't have Bootmii as Boot2 ??
    I wouldn't do it if I were you. But if you really want to: go ahead, but don't delete priiloader,
    it could be your last safetynet.

    Yeah but look, I mean installing priiloader right after you installed the black menu theme, when you exit mymenuify you are still in HBC, so you install priiloader back.
    Its not that I want to delete priiloader, it is that it is automatically removed when you install the theme.

    But yeah. I dunno if I should take the risk, I mean everything is working right now [​IMG]

    FYI, Priiloader isn't uninstalled when you install a theme, so you should NOT remove it.

    I thought that was the case, but didn't want to sound stupid [​IMG]
    I recall bricking from a bad theme once, and recovering through preloader.
    But I also have Bootmii installed as boot2 so in the worst case I could have
    recovered anywayz...
