    well, i've installed some ios in my wii, 58,37,56, with some fear to brick, but its all right..then,the last thing i've installed, was a ciosxrev 19, trying to ┬┤play metroid other M. it's allright, but the metroid still doesn't work.then i've downloaded the darkcorp, i'm not installed yet, beause i see the ios60 in the package, and i've heard some brick cases under ios60,...and i have the same questions about CMIOS, and VC games, specially injected.what's my chances to brick?my wii is under firmware 3.4U, serial number LU65... if i install a ios of another system menu i will brick?

    I've installed 6 VC and 2 WiiWare games and I'm still brick-free, plus I prefer to use WADs for IOS installation. (Never tried an injected VC game, don't see the point, I can emulate everything except N64, and everything I want is on an official N64 VC channel anyway) It appears to be incredibly rare to brick, unless you're attempting to install over/using a stubbed IOS. I just suggest you use BootMii and make a NAND backup before you go crazy with WADs, so if anything does go wrong you're covered.

    Use Priiloader for brick protection. If you reinstall the system menu it will get deleted though ....

    If you only have BootMii as an IOS, I'd really be careful with what WADs to install if I were you. Make sure you trust the site you get the VC/WW WADs from, same with cIOSes. You're pretty much safe with anything from NUS, as long as it's installed properly. I'd steer clear of custom WADs like injected VC games and channel forwarders, as those appear to be more risky than regular channels.

    Then the best you can do is install priiloader, this will protect you but only at certain things things for example a banner bricks

    IOS60 = Used with system menu 4.1

    Your on system menu 3.4 so it doesnt matter. If you want to update to 4.1 install IOS60 v6174 + System menu 4.1 with DOP-mii v13.
