    My electricity is not so stable...so, I was thinking, what could happen if there is a power cut when I'm installing a wad file with wad manager?

    Entirely?

    Will I be able to use a self-bootalbe ISO of Wad Manager or AnyTitle deleter to remove the WAD ?

    You should use Starfall to install the recovery menu thing and have the TP Hack on your Wii just in case.

    maybe the wad will just be broken, it wont cause a corruption for the nand to hault....
    so you would be able to delete like normal why don't you test...

    WAD should just be corrupted.

    If that is the case, DONT RUN THE WAD!
    Boot up WAD manager, make a uninstall of the WAD.
    Reinstall WAD, and it should work.

    (Im just guessing)

    it prob will brick you cos a half installed channel on the wii will confuse it and it will refuse to start

    I've had this happen on a couple of times because I'm rural so power comes and goes in storms.
    I've never bricked, they just don't work so I uninstall and re-do.
    Can't say this would always be the case, but it's happened to me a good few times.

    Take the usual precations (starfall etc)
