You need to downgrade if you have v3.4. There is a link in my sig on downgrading.

I have been reading up on this stuff hours and hours over serveral days and it is frustrating. I read the "read me first" threads and FAQs, etc. It seems that most of the guides assume that you already understand certian things about modding and how it all works.
I have a newer Wii with 3.4u. I recently bought a D2PRO9 V3 from CanadaMods. I imagine it will be here soon enough.
Besides the fact that i dont want my kids touching original Wii discs (for fear that they will look like their sandblasted Toy Story and Nacho Libre DVD's), i wanted to play old school ROMs. I thought i could do that with the mod chip.
Maybe i didnt need it at all?
What i am gathering by what i have read is that HBC is a gateway for other apps and i will need to install it. If this is true then i have read the guides and am no closer to understanding it. It seems the TH is mentioned over and over again. I dont want to fool with that. This is why i bought the mod chip. I cant seem to find a guide that tells how to install HBC with a modchip.
Can i use this mod chip with my current firmware?
If i need to install HBC to play ROMs, can i do it with the current firmware without doing the TH thing?
Maybe i dont need HBC. I just need info on how to play old school ROMS. This is most frustrating. This is most frustrating. (Yeah, I meant to say that twice.)
Maybe HBC isnt the answer. It seems that there is a lot of info all over the place and it is hard to know what is up and what is down. It is like a giant Wii hacks blender and i dont know what is what.

To play ROM's, you will need the HBC. Modchips only load backed up games.Since you have 3.4, you can't install the HBC without downgrading, and need to use the HBC to downgrade.
Sorry, but you will need the TH. There is a link to installing the HBC and downgrading in my sig.
I wish you could do it a little easier, but with 3.4 there is no way to do that. It's best you get off 3.4 ASAP.

TY. Why is it best to get off of 3.4? If i do the TH i can get off of 3.4u?

I will have HBC installed? Is this the same as this: The Homebrew Channel
Is this self updating?
Do i run risks running this? Not legals risks i just dont want my system to stop working.
Could someone point me to a definition of HBC? I dont quite understand it. Is it just an interface?

Question about the homebrew channel and loading .dol's
Ok so I have the homebrew channel v.1.0.1. When I run it, the icon in the lower right corner will flash a few times and then stay dark. I press HOME and see that it is not connected to the network. I hit back and click on the network icon and it lights up. I then press HOME again and see that my Wii is assigned an IP address. I hit back again, and try to run Homebrew Browser. Everytime I try to run Homebrew Browser, though, it says:
"Waiting for network to initialise..."
"Unable to initialise network, exiting"
And it brings me back to the homebrew channel.
I've been trying this with the Homebrew Browser as well as the Tona Shop Installer (which is supposed to update the WiiShop and IOS51), and I get the same error, "Unable to initialise network".
I disabled the WiiConnect24 to see if that was the issue, but no dice.
I don't get it... When I'm in the homebrew channel, I can ping my Wii from my computer, but as soon as I load up something, I can't ping the Wii. I was able to run Homebrew Browser and download a game about an hour ago, but I don't know why I can't now..
btw, I'm running Homebrew Browser 0.2.4.

Use the twilight hack to install. On the site in my sig, start at the downloads page and then go to the installation page. When you have it installed, use the other link in my sig (the downgrading one) to downgrade your Wii. There is an extremely low chance your wii will break.
3.4 is the worst update for homebrew so far. It limits lots of homebrew apps and it can update itself WITHOUT YOU KNOWING. It also deletes fake save files and channels.
