brick pretty means that your Firmware got messed up, and no longer can operate, so its nothing more than a brick/paperweight. But I think a wii is more of a cinder block. Brick is more often referred to the PSP because of the CFW.

Dont worry about the brick thing on the wii, since you arent doing any hard mods to it.
