I recently used this guide to softmod my wii:
How to Back Up and Play Your Wii Games from an External Hard Drive
Did everything to the T with the exception of installing cios36...used cios250 instead.
After reading a bit more about the whole process here I am assuming that was probably not the best guide to use.
Everything seems to be run ok except for Super Mario Galaxy...haven't tried the Band Hero instruments but im betting those wont work based on this thread.
So the question is since I have HBC installed already, can I just jump to Chapter 2 in this guide and install all the latest updates without any ill effects to what I have done already?
I really wish i had read this forum first...but that would have been too easy.
