    My Wii had a full brick a few months ago. And I've fixed it recently. My firmware is 3.2U now.
    So the question is: Should I install softmii for my Wii?

    I already searched and knew that it was used to change theme for Wii, and something else which I don't really know.
    I've read a tutorial of changing the health warning screen for Wii. I tried with healthii but it didn't work. And someone advised me to use Softmii instead.

    So, Is there any chance my Wii will get bricked again if I install softmii? (I bricked it twice so I didn't want this to happen again [​IMG] )
    Now I have to different version of Softmii (2.1 & 3.0). Which should I use?

    I also need the installation guide too [​IMG]

    No. Don't install SoftMii. It's crap.

    no its old and outdated now hackmii is out
    install hackmii and backup your nand (then if you do brick you can restore)
    you can use a few programmes to change your wii menu without installing all the stuff from softmii (softmii tweaks,my menuify and waninkoko has brought out an app to do it from sd card)
    the key to not bricking though is reading the guides again and again and understanding what your doing in the process

    Install Bootmii (boot2), and create a nand backup. Then your set to do whatever you want without worrying about bricking. As you always have a nand backup to restore too.

    Use Waninkoko's 4.1 Upgrader so you have the nice 4.1 system menu.

    Download the ios60 patch so you can use custom/pirate VC/Wiiware.

    Download WiiPower's Trucha bug restorer also if you feel like it.

    SoftMii was a useful guide to softmod a Wii when hacking a Wii required many steps to fully softmod a Wii. With today's tools, you can hack a Wii in merely a few steps ( Bannerbomb > HackMii/BootMii > Trucha Bug Restorer > Install cIOS)

    Don't even need the Bug restorer step. Since Hackmii installs HBC, and then you install the cIOS from within it. But yeah, it's simple now.

    In general yes he's wrong about that, but in this case he actually doesn't need to since hes on 3.2.
