    no, you will probably not get bricked, because almost every modchip contains a update blocker, and if you brickblock your games first, it is 99,99999999% save.

    the choise for 4.0 is the same as for every other FW, because hardmods aren't blocked

    Ease of installation doesn't really depend on system menu version, rather what version of DVD drive you have, and if it's chips are covered in epoxy or not.
    Bust it open and have a look.

    never used that mod chip before but i highly recommend that site.

    and as the post above states its the drive you have not the system menu.

    how old is your wii if you just bought it recently it probability has epoxy and will make it tough to install. could always open up your wii and check before you buy it.

    after reading the chip description it says it attaches to the ribbon cable and not attached to the board which means its likely still running games at 3x speeds (Not sure if it is or not since its the first i herd of this chip)

    looks good to me overall but id research it a bit more before buying.

    drivekey works on all wiis and is easy to install... but it's limited to 3x read speeds... same as soft mod which means there are some problems with a few games though the vast majority will play perfectly fine.
