OK, so I'm inheriting a Wii soon from someone. It's 2 years old so I assume it has the easy to mod chipset. Likely going with WiiKey or D2Pro (I'll open it up to be sure before I order). All I really care to do with it is play backups. Bricking is the only gray area I'm seeing on forums. As far as I can tell, to avoid bricking it, the only thing I have to do is run any iso I'm not 100% sure of through BrickBlocker or RegionFrii before burning? Or is that not accurate? Also, can it be hooked up online or does that give update/brick issues too? OK, past the basic questions, most of the chips say they run stealthy or have a disable option. Is the chip ever what affects brick issues? The WiiKey is 6 wire I think I remember... one power, one ground, and 4 data. Would there ever be a benefit to running the data lines through a tri-state buffer IC so that it could be essentially disconnected at the touch of a button when it could cause a problem? That wouldn't add any real difficulty to the install and would cost under a dollar for the IC and switch. That way the chip could be disconnected for an online update... if that matters. Thanks for any info.
