    Installing and using the Twilight Hack itself is not dangerous. Since the Twilight Hack allows you to run arbitrary software, you must be careful not to run any software that might brick your Wii. I suggest you install the Homebrew Channel using the Twilight Hack. It allows running homebrew software from your SD card and is currently not known to be unsafe. You can delete the Twilight Hack (and use your original Twilight Princess save file, if you want) after the installation of the HBC.

    EDIT: The most recent version of the Twilight Hack works on System Menu 3.3

    Make sure there is enough space on your Wii (12 blocks or more), so that nothing can go wrong.
    Remember, nothing is 100% safe, but I have never heard of the HBC installation causing a bricked Wii.

    The twilight hack is just a hacked save file for twilight princess. It does not install, you simply copy it from your sd card to your wii. It cannot brick your wii, it is only what you use it to run that can potentially brick your wii. So just be careful.
