Please forgive my being stupid/paranoid here. I have almost everything I want working right on my Wii and at this point I really don't want to risk things getting messed up. I already have a softmodded Wii but no usb loaders or cIOS stuff. After looking around it seems like modmii is what I should use. I'm having trouble with getting modmii to do only what I want it to do though. I don't want to reinstall everything, just add what's needed to rip and run wii games through the homebrew channel. So I choose "no" for the first time option and check "USB Loader" and "Reccommended cIOSs" (because that's needed for USB loaders, I believe). I left everything else unchecked. This is where I'm getting confused: I'm a bit paranoid about bricking, so I want to do the absolute least amount of modifications possible. I don't want or need a forwarder on the system menu as I have the Wii boot to the homebrew channel, so I almost never see the system menu. And I have heard that installing forwarders (and VC stuff) are the most likely things to brick a Wii. I'm confused because the guide that modmii brings up mentions Multi-Mod Manager and IOS236. Are these necessary in order install cIOSes and USB loaders? I have no idea if IOS236 is installed or not. Plus the guide says this forwarder channel will be installed: USBLoader(s)-ahbprot58-SD-USB-v11b-IDCL. I didn't see an option not to install a forwarder, and I didn't tell it to install a forwarder. I'm very reluctant to install something I know I won't use as (even though it's probably a small chance for bricking, it's still one more thing that can potentially go wrong) . Background: I softmodded my 4.3u Wii about two years ago, so I'm a bit rusty with this stuff. I installed bootmii and priiloader and backed up the nand back then. But I held off on cIOSes and USB loaders because that sounded much more likely to be able to brick a Wii.
