    Need HELP for homebrew installation!!

    Hi,

    I want to load in my wii homebrew and just want to ONLY install the cheat engine for my games, I have a 3.4U update, so I need help installing it so that my wii won't get bricked, and I don't have a gamecube, so that means no GC mem cards (for anti-bricking)

    THANKS, I appreciate it!

    What you need to do is fully softmod your wii with this guide:
    ►RECOMMENDED FAQ's, GUIDES & TUTORIALS ONLY ◄

    Then you need to find your cheats and programs you need to do it after you softmod.

    I have a question though? Why does bricking happen? Insufficient memory blocks?

    Another question to be answered: Where does the bricking happen on the systems?

    Another: will I get a bricked wii if I have 3.4U then i get the homebrew then update the wii? or will bricking happen before the procedure or after?

    Thanks alot Shadow Sonic2

    Nope, it happens if you delete or install bad system files, aka bad wads, which prevent wii from booting normally

    Are you expecting an answer like "in the bottom"? Stay away from uninstalling ioses and you should be fine. Also if you have proloader you are jet, bc you can still boot in preloader menu and uninstall a bad wad

    with this procedure you can't brick. You can semi-brick if you do an upgrade with a disc outside of your region, and prior to that you will be asked "shall I upgrade?". You can perform an upgrade with waninkoko's updater with no side effects at all, with side-effects being to lose your mods, but definately not bricking

    Messie,

    So from all of this, I am sort of getting of what you are saying, so I don't want to play games from outside of the region, just NTSC and all I want to do is use Ocarina for codes THAT IS all!

    By the way, what is this waninkoko's updater?

    I know what you are going to say but with all this in mind, could I somehow have the files (maybe a link to safe softmods) and a procedure I can use for the 3.4U etc, anything that can help if I update to 4.1 or whatnot and so that my system does not get bricked as I don't have a modded system.

    Thanks

    btw: also, I have a 2gb Horizon SD card, will that screw anything up? and what is this FAT 16 or 32 thing?

    messie,

    when installing, just a quick question, do you need a gamecube controller?
