Hi guys. I bought a Wii 3 days ago and i have already discovered it can be hacked. Great. Now, i've read a lot of guides about hacking my Wii, but i've got some doubts. Unfortunately i discovered i've got a System Menu 4.2 so i can't install BootMii as Boot2 but only as IOS (I verified it with an SD card). By reading here and there, the real problem i've noticed is the phantom of "bricking the console". So my main problem is, how can i assure my Wii to be perfectly anti-brick? Since i have a System Menu 4.2 i can't use BootMii as Boot2 and i am forced (?) to use the Preloader too. All that's written below is just theoretical, i haven't installed BootMii, HBC or Preloader, because there are so many risks, so confirmations are appreciated. So, Imagine i've installed BootMii as Boot2 (not on my Wii, obviously) and took a Nand backup: what would happen if my Wii bricks? I switch on my Wii, the BootMii menu pops up, open up the "Nand backup restorer" and i restore the Nand. My Wii will work perfectly after reboot, right? Ok, let's imagine i installed BootMii as IOS: i could access it just by my Homebrew Channel, right? My Wii is bricked so i can't access the System Menu and therefore HBC. But if i have the Preloader installed i could access the HBC channel, and from there i could open up BootMii and restore my Nand, right? So, what's the real difference between the two "strategies"? Apart from the ease of the first method compared to the second one, is there anything else i should know? For example, will the Preloader always show up when my Wii is bricked? or will i be always able to enter the HBC from the Preloader when my Wii is bricked? I know this is a very boring topic, but guides don't explain this kind of stuff. Thanks in advance.
