    Okay, I have hacked my black wii 4.3, with the letter bomb hack, I have installed cIOS in 249 and 250 as well as the trucha bug and riivloution, is it safe to upgrade, or, can I use riivolution to launch my games to bypass the wii disk channel?

    There should be no need to upgrade. I believe the system upgrades were designed, primarily, to remove/prevent modding.

    Would Neogama work, also these games were working before I modded it?

    You should have priiloader installed to skip disk updates.

    I wont install priiloader, I don't want to screw up and brick my wii. If I update to a newer cios, would that fix it?

    i dont think you will screw up your wii just by installing priiloader to it.

    Priiloader is the only way to prevent updates directly in the system menu and it won't brick your Wii as it is designed to protect from bricks.
    Edit : ninja'd :D

    You can follow this simple tutorial to install it. Then, enable the appropriate hack. There is not risk to install it if you follow these instructions and if you don't use some old versions.

    Always the latest, 7 thus.

    EDIT: Forgot some quick explanation,
    You should always use the latest version (Unless stated that you should not) because of the possible bugs in the older versions.

    Okay, Priiloader installed, but it says it cant find the hacks, do I have to rename the .ini folder to hack-hash?

    just use ModMii, there's more you should be doing than simply installing priiloader; for example, have you made a nand backup?

    I have one for my other wii, should I install bootmii before continuing any farther and make another nand dump?

    you should make a nand backup for THIS Wii, if it were to brick, the nand backup from another wii would not help you.

    Download ModMii, install it, run the ModMii wizard, when asked, tell it that you're wii has not already been modded in order for it to get ALL your softmods up to date. The first step of your custom guide will be to install bootmii and make a nand backup.
