Mod type: Soft-mod
Version: 4.3U

Situation

Now about a few months back my mom wanted to use my Wii to watch Netflix but when I tried using Netflix the Wii had to be updated. So I told my mom the risk of updating or what I had heard the risk were anyway. She said it doesn't really matter and to just take the risk in updating. So I did and the Wii to my surprise still worked just fine. But now my mom gave me the Wii back but the HBC is still on the Wii menu as well as USB Loader GX.

Question

Will trying to use either the HBC or USB Loader GX brick my Wii?

I don't have Bootmii even though I probably should. My mom still uses this thing from time to time so I don't want to take the risk and brick it. Just wondering if I'm just freaking out or not.

Thanks! :lol:

just trying to use the hbc and usb loader gx will not brick your wii.

but you should definitely install bootmii and priiloader.

It won't brick, but your cIOSes are probably gone. You'll need to reinstall those for USB Loader GX to load games.
What will happen if I don't reinstall them and just try to load a game? Because I tried USB Loader GX and it seems to open up fine only thing is I didn't have a usb in my Wii at the time so it said it couldn't find one but that's all.

Black Screen maybe? Might reboot the wii. Won't hurt anything. Can't cause a brick.

You sound a bit experienced, and that's okay!
A few things you should know.
Since you were already on 4.3, the HBC and the custom channels were not removed, however your CIOS' have been replaced. :(
Install Priiloader on there NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Loading a game with USB Loader GX will cause either a black/green screen, a instant shutdown of the Wii, or a reboot. Either way your Wii won't be damaged.
I suggest posting a sysCheck or just use ModMii and confirm your softmods and what needs updating.

    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice

    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent

    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    that's not important

    i can't tell the difference

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
