    Help me please! I have version 3.4E and I wan't to install the homebrew channel!

    Dear all,

    I have been browsing through this site a lot over the past few days and I believe it the best site for wii homebrew on the net and I appreciate the efforts by everyone on this site.

    As for my problem, I am totally new to all this homebrew idea and I really don't understand technical terms that well so therefore I just wanted to clarify somethings. I bought a second hand Nintendo Wii a few days ago which is a "D2C Wii with a Wii Key 2 chip (17 features available out of 19) - Upgrade of Wii key 1 Chip".

    Firstly, I want to know what it means by 17 features available out of 19. Secondly, the version of my Wii is 3.4E. I have got a lot of backup games with it and they work fine. However, I want to install the homebrew channel and I want to know how I can do it. Basically, I've read that I need to downgrade? Is that true? If so, what are the advantages and/or disadvantages if any? And is it possible to have the homebrew channel without downgrading and what are the disadvantages? And how do I do this process? (Sorry but I find it all very confusing!!)

    I also want to know what tips there are to stop my Wii from getting bricked as I dont want that to happen. Also, is there anything else I may need to know?

    Lastly, I would like to thank in advance any responses I may get and am sorry about this being a very long post but i'm very new to all this so I would appreciate every reply.

    Regards.

    Thanks justsomeguy69. That does help but still a lot of my questions are unanswered i.e. do I have to downgrade even if I have wii key 2? and do i use the twilight patch? because most the stuff on this forum i see is relevant to those who dont have a chip, but I do. Would appreciate more help on this matter.

    Thanks

    i read this topic again, and i swear no one knows how i talk

    it was related to preventing bricks, and the best way is to not be a idiot, and read shit

    fake sign =
    any edit to the game, scrub, brick blocked, and regionfrii for the most part, there are others but their rarly used

    Oh right, my bad. Ok as I understand things right now after having read up on this even though I still dont get much of it since im in no way a technical person is that I have to downgrade to version 3.2 in order to play homebrew. and the way i do that is in the guide you gave in the first post, however, what i wanted to know is that even though i have a wii key 2 chip, do i still follow the guide? and i still dont really understand that once i downgrade, how i actually install the homebrew channel i.e. do i use the twilight hack or what? and lastly, would there be any effect on my wii if i browse the net online or a game asks me to update and i go ahead with in once i downgrade?

    Thanks
