Softmod - Followed the guide - Fell at last hurdle
Followed the excellent guide 3.2-4.1 on here to softmod wii. Everything seemed to go ok. The homebrew channel went upside down, but after updating this it righted itself. Then i fell on the firmware downloading part and when loading preloader, system hacks v386(none there)and then after rebooting i got the screen saying wii system files corrupted (or something like that).
Thank god i followed the advice for the bootmii and managed to recover everything.
Presently i think i'm on 3.4e so i assume i would have to go through this all again, but do i have to update firmware, what are the benefits?
Seriously thinking whether it would be lot less hassle putting a solderless chip in.
Try not to flame me too much, just trying to get my head round all this.
