    So after a long time i have finally got back into my wii.
    i modded it along time ago with the twilight hack.
    it is updated to version 4.1u. i just updated the homebrew channel.
    i used cios installed xr20b and updated.
    Can i play backups of new games like epic mickey without any problem like bricking my wii now?
    Can or should i update my wii to the newest version?

    Basicly you are set. Without risk of bricking. But if I was you i'd intall priiloader.

    Unless you have a newer wii with a D3-2 drive then it won't read backups. In which case, use a USB loader

    Bad media. Reburn on a DVD-R. I you have a new Wii, you can't read backups from burned discs.

    If it's an old burn, the discs can become corrupt.
    Every burned disc has an expireation date. Just ike food.
    The "best discs"last about 10 years. The worst last half a year.
    Try reburning. Then post again.
    Make sure yu have the latest Neogamma. It's stickied.

    i reburned a copy it worked, i have neogamma r8.
    do you have to patch the games or anything?

    i have a couple more questions too.
    Can i update the wii to the newest dash without messing anything up, is it even necessary for anything?
    What is priiloader?

    Thanks for the help too i really appreciate it.
    cant wait to play slappers only.

    Yes you can. BUT NOT THROUGH THE OFFICAL UPDATES!

    Use Modmii. It's also stickied.
    Recommended FW is 4.1 Higher is'nt nessicary.
    You can update the ioses seperate with dop-mii.

    Priiloader is basicly a set of hacks applied to your system menu.
    In case of a brick you still have acces to your HBC to fix bricks and problems.
    Provided your system menu ios is'nt damaged.
    It also allows region free games for Virtual console and Wiiware.
    And retail wii and gamecube discs.

    Mainly used for safety reasons when installing downloaded wads ( Wiiware and VC games )

    In ModMii choose the wizard and then say your wii is already hacked. After that just choose what you want. If you want to block disk updates then when going through the wizard say you want priiloader

    Once you finished using Modmii and following the guide you should have priiloader installed. Turn your wii off then back on while holding the reset button. It should load priiloader. In priiloader go to system menu hacks and enable the block disk updates hack, along with any other ones you want.
