    Just make a nand backup now. Doing so will dump the keys also, which are vital to fixing a wii if things go really sour and it becomes a full brick. The nand backup itself does help a lot, but really the most important part is the keys.

    I'm not sure I get what you're asking. Of course it's pointless if you make a backup if you just remove it later. For that reason, just store the nand and the keys on your hard drive somewhere instead of keeping it on the SD card.

    If things tend to get bad, you certainly have to use your OWN backup to restore your wii (not one of another wii). There are ways to use another one, but that's more complicated. And it doesn't matter if it has priiloader or a custom menu installed. :)

    Pretty sure he's asking if he needs a fresh nand backup in the case that he bricks his wii.

    If his nand has already been altered (with priiloader or anything else), backing up an 'altered' nand and not a 'fresh' nand might be an issue if the situation of restoring the nand ever arises.

    I can't answer this though as I'm not sure if there are any effects/differences in the long run
