Thanks for the guide and all the info but alot of this either doesn't apply to me or I am in way over my head. I used letterbomb to install homebrew but didn't install bootmii as it can only install as an IOS and not boot 2 from what I understand this means I don't need to install it. I then got the homebrew browser and installed sys check which listed all the IOS's I have installed on my system. All of the listed IOS's are present that I need which leads me to believe that I don't need to go through all the trouble of installing the correct ones to properly install and run a loader ( there are many and as I am not there yet I don't know which one I need or want, although I am partial to the wiiflow or coverfloader). I also installed a program called wiixplorer off of the homebrew browser that allowed me to see and access files off of my usb thumb drive and 640 gb HDD drive also plugged in usb. So I want to install a loader and here is my system info
IOS58 v 24.32
is this guide for me, it seems to me like alot of this doesn't apply to me, How confused am I. Thanks for any enlightment ahead of time. Only spent approx 3 hours on this so far and although I am playing a ton of old snes and sega classics I would really like to backup all my games and get them on my HDD so I can access them all through coverfloader or something similar without having to remove my ass from the couch. Happy holidays and thanks in advance for helping my obvious newb ass.
P.S. If you need the results from the syscheck I can post them as they are hanging out on my sd card. Also I had to get a friend over with his laptop and cardreader to get homebrew installed and would really appreciate it if we could get this done via usb thumb drive or the 640 gb hdd I have plugged in. Thanks
