Wad manager vs Mighty Channels, confusion. Help
I softmodded my black Wii, 4.3 using Mauifrogs excellent guide (bathaxx). I have really searched for an answer to my question and have found some guides I would like to follow.
However, my knowledge about what I actually did to my Wii by softmodding it is limited and so, I am afraid I will do something wrong.
I have looked into installing either Wad Manager or Mighty Channels.
For Wad manager, I get the impression that "all I have to do" is to put Wad Manager in the apps folder of my SD card, put the Wad in the Wad folder and run it through the HBC.
However, I read several places that I need to make sure I have this and that IOS (249) running, base 38 etc. But I don't know how to check these things. Also, is the risk of bricking your Wii higher with this method?
The tutorial for Mighty Channels which I have included in a link underneath is horribly confusing to me.
First of all, should I user Showmiiwads or SimpleFS Dumper?
The instructions for Showmiiwads is confusing to me because I dont understand why I will have to do a NAND backup as I have already done that following Mauifrogs hack guide. Also, is this program run from the Wii or the PC? It asks for me to find my bootmii dump and I have no idea where that is
Anyway - my questions about that guide go on and on and I realize I should probably ask those questions in that thread.
I also got the impression that I should use a 2gig SD card, which I did when I initially hacked it. On this card I now have the apps folder, config, usb-loader and some other files which I believe I shouldnt touch. Can I move these to another DS card with more space as it seems like not many wad files would fit in the 2gig card?
All said, I have searched the net and often only find guides for 4.2 which I don't want to follow because I am afraid to brick the Wii.
I hope someone can give me some answers.
Thank you very much
