    Gecko OS requires a modchip.

    If you wanted to load backups without one, you'll need the Backup Launcher Gamma.

    I did not know that Gecko needed a mod chip.....good to know. Now I can take that one off the list of Launchers that I am trying to use.

    Is the backup launcher gamma that is in Emperor of Canada's tutorial (DJ_Taz) similar to WIiGators? What are the differences if not? I am trying to find the best "launcher" and see a bunch out there to try.

    Thanks

    You do NOT need a Modchip to use Gecko OS.
    Since Gecko OS was originally made for loading imports without using a Freeloader.
    However some modchips DO use Gecko OS to load backups.
    If you softmodded your wii and you want to play backups than you will have to use Backuploader Gamma or Softchip.

    you need the HBC to run the program :/
    Unless you installed the WAD Manager as a channel. lol
    and yes it will run on 3.4 as far as i know.

    I'm on 3.4u now and don't have HBC installed. Is the only way to install it, to downgrade to 3.2?
