Im going to Softmod tomorrow hopefully, and was wondering about a few things:
a) I have read up on not using game based updates to avoid a semibrick. I have also seen advice that suggested you should always use internet connection based updates to be on the safe side - contrary to this however i have seen that the ideal firmware version should be 3.2 for numerous reasons. If i update over the internet, would this not be counter intuitive? What is the definitive answer?
b) What is the position on loading game backups? Can they be comfortably run from DVD-Rs using a backup loader through HBC? I was concerned over some posts that mentioned in most cases games may only run from an SD card, however Nintendo.com suggest only a 2gb SD card can be used and nothing larger. Am I getting confused between Wii games and homebrew games?
Thanks in advance.
