Ok, months ago i went through the process of HBC'ing my wii, installing SoftMii and preloader. My wii came with FW 3.1E and is now on 3.2E with SoftMii(some kind of cIOS?). I want to upgrade to 4.0E and get rid of SoftMii and preloader to replace these with BootMii, however i cannot find a guide which tells me how to remove SoftMii and Preloader while retaining the HomeBrew Channel.
So, what i want to do in a nice list
- Uninstall SoftMii
- Uninstall Preloader
- Upgrade to 4.0
- Install BootMii
- Keep HBC (Guides i've read remove this and just virgin-ize the wii)
If virginizing my wii is the only way forward, how do i go about installing the Homebrew Channel again? Everything seems a bit of a pain since i installed this SoftMii thing.
Many guides make it unclear as to whether i can just upgrade using regular update wads or whether i have to remove everything and then install stuff again.
Any help will be appreciated, I'm completely stuck at the moment!
