    My BootMii will NOT work. Will NOT work. I delete it and downloaded a new version, I've tried installing it again from the HackMii installer thing, but it won't work.

    (I made a NAND backup when I first hacked the Wii)

    If a .wad bricks my Wii I have priiloader to get to the HBC and uninstall it using Wad Manager or should I not install any because I can't restore from my NAND backup because I cannot launch the BootMii thing?

    If I were you, I wouldn't. But maybe you can use PriiLoader if you get a semi-brick.
    But if you wanted to install .WADs, just make sure you are DEFINITE that it will 100% work.

    Alright. How can I make sure it is 100%?

    Also I just installed the new Shop Channel wad using it because I didn't want to update my system.

    if you install a bad wad you get what is called a banner brick, priiloader also boots up befor the wii itself so yes you will still have priiloader you will just need to uninstall or use ATD to erase the wad you just installed [​IMG] bootmii is just in case you screw up something major and Priiloader is best for banner bricks which it sounds like what your worrying about [​IMG]

    So if I install a .wad from a safe site lots of people use, will it be safe?

    most wads should be safe, usually the worst that can happen is a banner brick, In which case, as kylster already mentioned, priiloader can fix.

    yes you should be safe, however in the chance when you boot your wii up and your get a black screen all you would have to do is boot your wii into priiloader load up hbc and either uninstall the .wad or use ATD to delete the installed channel. you should not worry about installing .wads [​IMG] cause it's simple to fix if you get a poorly made one.
