Well I've finally decided to finish hacking my wii but i forgot what i was upto.. I think i installed ciosrev20 or something, which was the one where you had to remove stubs?

Well i was wondering what was the ways you could brick a wii so i know what i can avoid.'

Can playing isos on a wii brick it?

Region of ISOs doesn't matter either. HOWEVER, as kaosu-noko said... installing WAD files (wiiware/vc games) does have a small risk of bricking the system unless you emulate the nand using sneek and install them there. You can force PAL/NTSC based on the tv you have, most loaders auto select.

I believe you would use Pal region games someone correct me if im wrong. but if you use USB you could force region of the game and i think that. i believe that you could do the same with a Disc
