    What's the best way to prevent accidental updates? I think I read that there is an option on Preloader. Is this the best route?

    Preloader is the way to go.

    Yeah Pre-loader works. Or just update to 4.1 and you wont have to worry seeing as it is the latest System Menu.

    Im on 4.1 and have Pre-loader to prevent checking for updates. It would not really matter though because all the updates on wii disks will be older than the System menu im running.

    Well.. the best way is common sense, but after that I'd recommend preloader indeed.

    Also if you're able to install Bootmii as boot2, make a NAND backup.

    Even if you can't install Bootmii as boot2, but surely as an IOS, you can use your NAND backup as long as you have Preloader, correct?

    I'm thinking this method (if boot2 doesn't work) to restore NAND:

    Launch PreLoader > Go To HBC > Run BootMii (via IOS option in HBC) > Restore NAND

    So... BootMii + Preloader = Still brick-proof with NAND??

    No, unfortunately not. I thought so too. But the Bootmii forums state somewhere that you will get a message like: BootMii installed as IOS, too dangerous to continue, or something like that.

    Well, that sucks [​IMG] ...
    Preloader is still somewhat of the brick-proof since you can use to launch HBC and install WADs (more specifically Systemmenu WAD, if you corrupt them)...

    Best way is to just remove the update partition on your PC. That's how I always do it.

    But you can still brick your Wii from installing "unoffficial" or custom WADs... if you don't have common sense [​IMG]

    That's not the question. The question is to prevent updates, not to brick your Wii.
