    Sorry if this has already been answered. I'm just very paranoid because I've already bricked my Wii and want to know hands down that I will be alright to do this. The newer wii Nintendo sent back to me was fully upgraded to 4.2U and can no longer play Burnt games, use mod chips, etc. I already did the trucha bug, removed stubs, and Installed IOS 249. Is it at all risky to install Wads now with the Wad Manager? More specifically I would like to know if I can install VC games such as N64 titles as well as the usbloadergx Wad. Thank you very much.

    Install Priiloader and you have nothing to worry about.

    Oh really? I was warned of using it so I was afraid to do anything with it.

    First of all I cant install BootMii because I have a 4.2. Second of all why would I if the other guy is telling my to install Priiloader. Third of all No one has answered my question...where are the awesomely awesome knowledgeable people?

    Bootmii works fine on a 4.2.

    installing bootmii2 backs up the wii nand. Just go to homebrew channel and then press start and select "load bootmii" and then run the program. Nand is essential.

    " * If you see Can be installed, you can get Bootmii as boot2 (which gives the best brick protection there is).
    * If you see Can only be installed as an IOS, you can only get Bootmii as IOS (which will give you NO brick protection)."
