    I'm getting into WAD installations, and I'm thinking about getting new themes. Should I get it?

    Well, in the past I wasn't doing any potentially dangerous things. Plus, I was a little intimidated when I saw this.

    "Please read the entire ReadMe before running the installer!

    This tool modifies the normal behavior of the Wii System and therefore can cause unexpected problems.

    It is highly recommended to install Priiloader only on a Wii with only unmodified IOSs!

    You agree that you install this tool at your own risk, and that the author can not be held
    responsible for any damages cuased by either using or installing this tool."

    That part is nonsense, having a cIOS won't affect Priiloader, and up until recently, it was required to even install it.

    I installed it, and my Wii is acting as if nothing ever happened.
    EDIT: I'm an idiot. I didn't remember I was supposed to hold down reset when I power the Wii on.

    It looks like in the past you modded your wii without following modmii.
    That is a potentially dangerous thing.

    I didn't know about ModMii in the past. I didn't know about it until I wanted to start using SNEEK.

    Priiloader does not only protect against banner bricks. It also prevents online updates and disc updates to mess up your softmod.
    It shouldn't be missing on any softmodded wii.
    (A bootmii nand backup somewhere safe on the pc harddisk or on a cd-r shouldn't be missing either.)

    "Please read the entire ReadMe before running the installer! - yes you should already read up before you install anything

    This tool modifies the normal behavior of the Wii System and therefore can cause unexpected problems. this is so if you are an idiot and screw something up, you dont try blaming or suing the developer.

    It is highly recommended to install Priiloader only on a Wii with only unmodified IOSs! not sure about this

    You agree that you install this tool at your own risk, and that the author can not be held again, so you dont blame the author
    responsible for any damages cuased by either using or installing this tool."

    almost all programs you install on anything will include similar warnings. i dont see why you are worried
