    Will it be ok, or it will brick the console? A friend sent me a Terranigma Wad, and I am a big fan of the Gaia trilogy, problem is that terranigma never saw an American release, ever. So I kinda wondering if it's safe.

    AFAIK you have at least 3 alternatives:

    a. Activate the hack "Region Free Channels" on Priiloader; or
    b. Convert the WAD to NTSC-U (or Region Free) with ShowMiiWads/FreeTheWads/etc; or
    c. Install the WAD in a emulated NAND and launch it with Neek2o/USB Loader GX/Wiiflow/etc (recommended alternative).

    Keep in mind that you should probably also force the video mode; if you choose the a or b alternative, you can use an old launcher called Triiforce if needed (I remember that I'd use it for launch Super Mario Picross PAL on my NTSC-U console, forcing video mode to PAL).
