    Hello,
    I hacked my wii many years ago with Dark Corp 1.1 (bad idea, I know...), and now it appears my Wii lens is failing as it is beginning to have trouble reading burned backups (all the original discs continue to work perfectly).
    I would like to stop using the backup discs so that I do not cause the lens to completely fail.
    So I was wondering how I should go about doing this.
    Should I just install wiiflow as normal? Could it cause a brick because of DarkCorp?
    Is it safer to uninstall darkcorp altogether (which I am willing to do, but I know it is not safe)?
    Any other ideas?
    Any help is appreciated.
    Just some random facts I remember about my Wii's current status (I havent changed anything on it in 2+ years as my setup had been working fine...)
    - on system menu 4.2
    - Priiloader is installed, but I think its an older version and it doesnt point to the homebrew channel (I have to go to the boot list and boot from there). I assume the HBC was updated and no longer works with Priiloader or something.
    - have bootmii as IOS

    leave darkcorp as is. make sure you have d2x v8 or v10 cIOS in 249/250 (base 56/57 respectively). install Wiiflow as normal.

    Thank you very much! Unfortunately, I really don't remember anything about the hacking scene.
    How do I check if I have those installed?

    you could just do a re-mod with modmii. using it, you will be given the option to remove DarkCORP, update the rest of your mod (HBC, cIOS, priiloader, etc.), and be given choice of installing a USB loader.

    probably your best option. fast. friendly. ...link in my sig
