    Homebrew Channel/Wii Chipped

    Hi
    Hope someone can provide some advice on a few subjects for me?

    My Wii is chipped and I use the USB Loader

    1) Homebrew Channel - I have never used this and not sure what this is all about. it is asking for an upgrade to 1.1.0 (currently 1.0.7).
    If I perform the upgrade will this cause my Wii to be blocked?
    What is the Homebrew channel normally used for?

    2) I have just bought my young fella the Skylander Giants pack, but the game will not start because the game part which is attached via USB is not recognised. The Wii is asking for an update to be performed but this will brick my Wii, so how can I get this game to work?

    I'm very green when it comes to IT, so it would be appreciated if someone could give me basic instructions, step by step. I've searched some websites but the info is a bit full on.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    1) Using HBC 1.1.0 is a good thing. I recommend updgrading. The HBC is used for launching homebrew apps. Everything from USB loaders to alarm clocks to emulators to a BASH shell.

    2) Chances are your softmod is out of date. Follow the Softmod Any Wii guide completely starting with the spoiler labled "Softmods with HOMEBREW CHANNEL installed." Then if you still have problems, There is a Skylanders guide on the forum. You can search for it if you need it.

    A mod has moved your thread to a more appropriate section. We (experienced) users ask our newbies to be a little bit mindful of where they post (if you had an iRC issue, that would've been OK for example).
