As the title describes, I'm interested which one is better. Its not for me as i have Bootmii as boot2 but I've been modding a couple of Wii's for my friends so they can use USB Loaders but they have new Wii's and can not use boot2. Does StartPatch have any brick protection? My plan is to install the following on a virgin 4.2: HBC 1.0.8, Then update to 4.3, then cIOS rev20 (what's the best base IOS for this?), Hermes v4 or v5 (whats better?) and either StartPatch or Priiloader. I have modded a couple of my friends Wii's a while ago and they are at 4.1 and i wish to update theirs. Any Info would be greatly appreciated.
