Old Homebrew/Hacked Wii - Update and clean out - Questions
OK, so I've got an old wii that's been softmodded (no chip) for many years and I've wanted to check with someone who knows for a while now and see if there's any updating/maintenance I should do on my system. I want to make sure I don't have software incompatibilities or other trouble down the road. Also, wanted to see what if anything else I should copy/backup in case I have trouble.
I originally used Twilight hack back in 2008, maybe, possibly early '09, and have randomly installed other things on it since. I'm on 3.2U, IOS 58v24.31. I have BootMii as boot2. I've backed up my NAND and all SD card contents on my PC as a redundant backup. I believe I have Starfall installed, if that's still something that matters? Not sure what else or how to check for it, not even sure what's relevant.
In homebrew I show the following things:
USB Loader GX
FCE Ultra GX
FCE Ultra GX channel installer
Firmware Updater 4.1 (I don't think I've run this?)
Snes GX/channel installer
Trucha bug restorer
I'm not sure what else to look at. So what I want to know is if there's anything I should do in terms of updating my IOS, my System Menu or version, or whatever else that might keep things running smoothly. I just want to make sure I'm covered if I put a new game in, or if there's some kind of new stuff I should do? I was going to install some WADs for N64 games, but wanted to hold off until I get things optimized. Also, I never go online except maybe to DL updates or boxart or something, don't play or shop or anything like that over the internet on the wii, if that makes a difference.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
