    Can't really see what you could mess up, since it's just a dol on your SD, loaded from the homebrew channel... You'll have to install IOS36rev10 though, but since like thousands of people already did it, there's not much chance you'll mess that up... Just make sure your internet connection works and you're good to go.

    You don't HAVE to install any wads to run it...

    If you just run the dol, nothing can go wrong
    But if you install a wad, that could go wrong if there's something wrong with the file.
    Just have preloader installed and you'll be safe

    in my opinion, ios installing through internet is saver... that way, it get's completely downloaded/checked before installing... the wad can be wrong to begin with...
