    Hello guys. recently I installed homebrew to my wii 4.3U and installed bootmii as ios and priiloader (I am on IOS 80). I was wondering if all i need is priiloader and bootmii if my wii get bricked. Do I need to copy my nand to my computer for safe keepings?

    Have a little patience. People aren't just standing by looking for an opportunity to help you. Wait 24 hours before bumping.

    Keep a backup copy of your NAND. As long as you don't modify any IOS's below 200 or mess with themes, you shouldn't have any problems. BootMii as boot2 would offer you the best protection, but that's only possible on really old Wii's. What you have should cover most bricks.

    +1 what joostin advised - if you're gonna have a play with themes and/or your own custom WAD's (and why not :)), I suggest you install Dolphin to your PC https://dolphin-emu.org/
    this way you can test anything out without fear of bricking!
