    Sounds like BS to me. But backup your nand in bootmii just to be safe (always a good idea!)

    That's bullshit: homebrew emulators does not modify anything permanent in your Wii, the only thing they can do is crashing like any other programs, which is solved by turning the console off then back on. Als, unlike VC official emulators, you can use ROM from any regions.

    You can however brick your Wii if you try to install a corrupted WAD or VC channel, not sure about the VC game region though, I doubt it can brick your Wii, probably it will just refuses to load from the system menu

    This planet
    VC and WiiWare games can't brick the wii
    even if they are wads
    if they have a faulty banner, they won't even install
    and if they have a wrong region, they'll just give a black screen (unless you have region free hacks)
