noob, please help me make up my mind
ok i havent ever modded anything, but i am a pc tech and decent with flashing things. i guess heres the deal, i want to be able to play backup games, preferably from a flash drive. and i am on the fence if i wanna try this or not. i have an older wii, it has been updated once a while ago, it has 3.4u on it. i understand how to install homebrew, does not seem hard. will install homebrew with the bannerwhatever hack. i do have twilight princess game, is that a better route to go with the older firmware? so after i get the homebrew installed, and get some type of usb loader installed, is that it? will i still be able to play my orignal games? does it play new releases, like say when the new super mario bros wii game comes out, will i be able to play a backup of it, or do new releases require 4.2 firmware, like how new psp games require the latest firmware to be installed? or do i just need a loader, and them i am good to go? i guess im asking if once i install a loader is it a one time thing, or do i need to constantly update it to play new releases. and does a dvd+r work everyone says dvd-r but i have seen many youtube vids with +r working fine? and what works better playing from a dvd r or a usb? is one more reliable than the other?
