    I've been seeing many posts about people getting their wii's bricked.
    I currently have a NTSC-U Wii with the 3.2U firmware using Backup Loader with the 002 Error Fix
    I load my games from Rebooting With Hooks From the Backup Loader into the Disc Channel
    I have the homebrew channel
    With a Software Modded Wii No ModCHip

    Any applications i can get so that i can prevent my wii from bricking?
    Like i heard about StarFall & HackMii

    I have a USA copy of the regular Link's Twilight Princess in original


    what do these really mean

    * Remove rescue-menu diagnostic disc check

    starfall is program that blocks disc updates and many other system menu hacks and lowers your chance of bricking you wii because you cant install a update from the wrong region and hackmii is a website you are probaly talking about savemii which is a recovery dongle for the wii which can recover you from some bricks

    Get Starfall, it works on 3.2. It probably won't save you from firmware brickings, but if you like installing Injected Virtual Console games and Wii Ware games, it'll save your life (especially if you still have Twilight Princess, which apparently you do). Some Virtual Console games can "Brick" your Wii because of a bad banner. Starfall can skip over that mess by making you load straight to the game. Again, I don't know about firmware bricking, but thanks to Starfall I can skip the worry about updating firmwares and now I can make my own banners for my own injected games.

    Sometimes I brick my Wii intentionally by installing bad banners, just to unbrick it.
