    Is there anything i should install on my Wii so if it does get bricked i can somehow fix it?

    I'm very ignorant on the issue.

    I have Homebrew and Backup Loader installed.
    My Wii menu is version 3.3

    Preloader lets you boot into homebrew channel directly if you brick your wii with a banner brick from a faulty wad - it may also save from some other things , but it has some flaws in that if you update your system preloader gets removed so a fault system file will still brick you

    Preloader rules and is one of the best apps ever created for the Wii. I was messing around with the hack.ini settings and brought me to a black screen after the system menu. I think because I put the PAL settings on NTSC my mistake. Anyways my point is that I shutdown, booted back up holding reset. There I was in the preloader menu, fixed changed and I was good to go. Same thing if you get a bad WAD that gives you a banner brick. You can run a Wad Manager and then uninstall the bad WAD or possibly reinstall the system menu if needed. If you are going to hack your Wii, the preloader is a must!!!
