    Why are you launching the backup Homebrew Channel? Is there something wrong with the normal one?

    If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct

    "Why are you launching the backup Homebrew Channel?"

    Its my very first Wii Mod. I have just finished, so naturally I had a look around at the various functions.
    The back up prompt occurs as soon as I enter.

    I am hoping that this is normal and expected behaviour and I have no errors?

    the hacks themselves are installed. So the "30 ISOs" are no longer needed.

    A clue to tell you what you need to keep and what you don't is that the start of each chapter, your SD card is formatted. Can't save data after that.

    You do need to have apps installed on your card. In order to run them. Those you have to keep.

I followed the prompts and did the update as I thought it must be correct. But it asks again every time. What can I do?
    Don't use backup HBC. It is not used for backups, but as an emergency in case you lose your main HBC as a point where you can still launch some apps, such has HackMii Installer to reinstall HBC. It is HBC 1.0.3, which is why it is thinking you are running an old version. You are.

    Keep this in the back page of your Wii menu and don't use it unless you have to, use the normal HBC otherwise.

    Excellent, thank you.

    A follow up question: Just a small thing that puzzles me:
    The prompt caused by the Bac- Up Homebew channel was to go to Homebrew 1.1.0
    So does the Homebrew Channel self updates? I guess it must. That's a darn sight easier if I can just update it over Wifi in the future but.... isn't the latest Homebrew 1.1.2?

    HBC does phone home and ask to be updated to the lastest significant release.

    In Wiis, that is 1.1.0. Any thing after that is for vWii specific changes and is not recommended for use in Wiis. So we suggest keeping 1.1.0 in your Wii.

    Also when I went into other programs it froze as well. I didnt connect Hard Drive yet.

    Please let me know again!

    Thanks
    Hi, it seems like my question was skipped. Any help would be appreciated!

    I have noticed that for WiiFlow there are a lot of alternative forwarders (as well as an updated version of WiiFlow). If I was to use the updated version of WiiFlow with all the rest of this guide, can I still use the Wiiflow-FIX94v11forwarder-DWFA.wad file that comes with this or would I need to get a more recent forwarder channel wad?

    For those who are curious about why 4.2, please see this thread on the WiiFlow wiki.

    A forwarder is a simple chunk of code installed to the NAND. It's a quasi-channel, that mostly is just a splash screen that then directs the actual program to load off SD or USB card. In other words, if you update the boot.dol on your SD card or USB device, you'd not need to worry about updating the forwarder.
