    Arrow yet another new guy....

    Hey everyone on! figured it was about time to post in here.

    so, hello

    on to the noob questions. i need some help with my wii. i put homebrew on it after i updated to 4.2u. That was not much fun. but now the 4.3 update came out and completely screwed me over. it wouldn't let me load a disk without updating, gave me the "this game may not play correctly without updating your system" so i disconnected from the internet hoping it would at least give me a try again later message. it did not. it had a loading bar go by and after that... nothing changed. still had homebrew, still said 4.2u in the menu. but now my usb loader gx is majorly muffed up. now it's giving me an exception dsi error occurred message and i can't get around it. i've searched through multiple threads on multiple sites and tried multiple fixes, none of which worked. so i've decided it might be best to completely format my system to 3.2 menu and put homebrew on that.

    does this seem like a good idea? i know all my channels will be deleted but i didn't have any besides what came on it. nothing i would be upset about losing.

    from my understanding, it's easier and safer to put homebrew on a 3.2 system and it's also brick proof. correct?
    and my last question is, if i go to all the trouble of doing that, can i still use what i have on my sd card and external hard drive? i have a few emulators and games i'd like to put back in with homebrew and a lot of games that don't want to reload on my HD.

    any information would be greatly appreciated.
    thanks for reading!
