Old softmod, everything "working"...should I re-softmod cleanly?
I know what you're going to say! You're going to say "no way, if it's working, don't mess with it!" And believe me, that's what's stopped me from trying to re-softmod more "cleanly".
I've been searching around and kind of don't know what to search for, since I've got some specific questions and some general ones. I appreciate any guidance you dudes might have.
Background - I've got an older Wii that still runs DVDs, and I'm on some ridiculously low system version like 3.2U. I did the Twilight Hack a couple years back, and have USBLoader GX running on my system. I've got Priiloader 0.4, and I think *something* somewhere along the way (Priiloader?) installed BootMii as an IOS.
I wanted to install the hacks for Priiloader to block system updates, etc. But the hacks.ini file I got doesn't load, since, I'm assuming, the hacks are for a different menu version (that's the message I get, something like "can't find hacks for system menu 343").
Meanwhile, I can't get to HBC from Priiloader because it says the target can't be found or might not be installed. So I go to the System Menu, then to HBC from there, and it works fine.
So, all this kind of got me thinking about whether I *should* update my system through DOP-Mii or something. Then, of course, I read all this rad stuff about using BootMii as boot2.
It also got me thinking about whether softmodding "back in the day" was just a little sloppier of a process, and if now I've got unnecessary stuff on my SD/Wii. I wonder if I should do one of those guides to return my Wii to virgin factory settings and re-softmod. Is that completely stupid to do?
Again, I appreciate all the input you guys can offer. I realize I dumped a lot of info at you guys, especially for a system that is technically WORKING already. I just wonder if I could be running the whole process more efficiently both in my Wii and on my SD card.
