    Hello,

    Quick question, if I have a virgin 4.0 wii that has serial LU 64+. Can I use the bannerbomb and trucha bug method?

    I used this method on 3.4 wii that was LU64

    Yafaze's guide is ok for just the basics, but if you want a little more, you can look here too.

    The Yafaze guide is definitely the best.

    You can then add Preloader for some basic brick protection. Unfortunately, you won't be able to install BootMii as boot2, but that's okay.... just be careful and make sure you know what you're installing before you do so.

    Please elaborate more on how Preloader can brick a system... so I can be more cautious in the future...

    That's just silly misinformation. Preloader will work just fine on a 4.0 LU64, and the benefits FAR outweigh the risks. Preloader has no more chance of bricking your system than any other homebrew you'll install, and it's the only brick protection you have since you can't install BootMii as boot2. It's also got a ton of very, very useful hacks built in, and I highly recommend it. It's far more dangerous not to have than to install. Are you trying to get this guy a banner brick that he can't recover from?

    To reiterate: Use the Yafaze guide: http://www.yafaze.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=1178 , making sure to pay special attention to the LU64 notes. Then install Preloader. That's currently your best option.
