    Questions before I start so I dont screw it up

    I just got a Wii for Christmas well I found out it is ver 3.3U so I know I can use the TP hack with Homebrew my question is will home brew update on its own when needed and will I then be able to update to 3.4U I cant use the wii store untill I update which I dont want to update and lose out on modding. I would like the wii store so I can eventually download the wii browser and even buy older games but I want the homebrew to play backups. I know homebrew has a 3.4 hack but with 3.4 you lose wifi and can not play backups since patchmii dont work causing dvdx not to work. Any advice before I get started?

    The store wont load it says must upgrade to 3.4 so cant buy anything little lone get it for free which has me intrigued. Also thanks for the link I will read it over and over before I start. Why would I have to downgrade to 3.2 if the hack and homebrew works with 3.3 as well as dvdx? Also must I keep the sd card in the wii everytime I play a backup?

    When you install a WiiWare or VirtualConsole backup(wad file) with Wad Manager, it is copied onto the Wii. The wad file is not needed to play.

    Homebrew Apps, however, must have access to the SD card.
