    Questions about updates, brickblocking, WADS, etc . . .

    I have an original Wii modded with a wiikey. It works fine with no issues. I have not played any recent games or some time since, in my opinion, there are not many good games being released. Now that the homebrew scene is taking off I would like to get up to speed on a few things.

    What sort of brickblocking measures should I implement if any? Is there any sort of tools that would let me recover from a brick and do they need to be pre-installed?

    Is softmii the best package of its type? Do I need it since I have a Wiikey?

    Since virtual console games are now hacked, is there any danger of using these hacks? Wii getting banned from nintendo's network for example.

    What is the name of the virtual console hack? Where is a good place to read up on it?

    Is there some sort of bible/faq that I could read which would answer most of this?

    Oh yea, almost forgot . . . Is there a tool that will stop games from auto updating my Wii when I put a new game in? Or will it always ask before update since I have 3.1U (or 3.2 for that matter) firmware.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    2 tools are available at the minute but both require you to be on 3.2..... they are Starfall and Preloader(0.28).
    The general consensus appears to favour Starfall over Preloader - less buggy (for now)

    If you want to run VC games, then I suggest you install Homebrew
    Since virtual console games are now hacked, is there any danger of using these hacks? Wii getting banned from nintendo's network for example.
    An incorrectly made WAD will banner brick the Wii.
    There are no reports to date of Nintendo banning anyone - I doubt if they currently have this capability

    What is the name of the virtual console hack? Where is a good place to read up on it?
    Which console do you want ??

    Is there some sort of bible/faq that I could read which would answer most of this?
