    So only banner bricks. Well thats how i can imagine I COULD brick my console, cause only thing i would do is install wads of some channels or forwarders, but thats about it. I mean i mostly backup my games and put them on SD or USB...
    As far as i see, normal user cant really brick a wii unless he tries to, and if he does, even bootmii as ios can protect.

    Did i got that right?

    Ppl region change them and sell them. I even think that most 003 bricks are by ppl who purchase their wii second hand
    Edit :
    I have a U console but live in Europe, ppl move

    But if they change whole sticker wouldnt the serial and region be different to match the faulty region?

    I mean your comment was an obvious/great segway to my reply

    Anyway, yes of course they could replace the sticker, but it would probably look obvious if it was tampered with, and I think many ppl wouldn't think to bother with futsing with the serial sticker, probably not worth the effort when 99% of buyers don't check these things

    Also, semibricks caused by messing with system IOSes can be solved with Priiloader, as long as the system menu IOS itself is intact and Priiloader hasn't been overwritten. For example somehow messing up the IOS used by HBC so HBC will no longer load, possibly messing with other IOSes so games will not load, leaves you with a pretty useless system. Priiloader would still be able to boot into BootMii IOS on such a system. I've seen bricks like that, they're not very common but they happen. Banner and theme bricks are by far the most common type of bricks that Priiloader can protect against though. But BootMii as boot2 can even recover from a completely fucked NAND, as long as boot2 itself is intact.
