    Bootmii as ios is safe, you won't brick your console if you follow the sticky mod any 4.3 or below guide at the top of this forum.

    Right at the top of the forum it says
    #Home #forum #reviews #shop #downloads #releases #wiki #search

    #dowloads takes you to filetrip, you can get most of everything from here including priiloader

    With bootmii as an IOS and Priiloader you're about as safe as you can get on a console that doesn't support bootmii as boot2.
    You'll be safe from the most common bricks (bannerbricks, theme bricks, or anything that causes the "system menu files to become corrupt") but it isn't perfect protection. As long as you don't do anything stupid though, you'll be fine.

    Make sure to get Priiloader, not Preloader.
