Please, please can people talk english to me!!!
Hey, Im very new to the hacking scene and i have no idea about any of the jargon terms used in this site, basically I started to get into the idea of hacking because I want to play Manhunt 2 on the wii uncensored, bottom line is I have managed to do that using a programme on Homebrew called Gecko OS and some kind of cheat code. I have searched this site but I cannot find an idiots guide to hacking please can someone answer a few questions:
1. What is a Cios, Wad, preloader and wad manager all completely go over my head? I havent got a clue what they mean or do
2. Bricking - I am worried now that I have installed homebrew I may suffer this bricking thing i have disconnected my internet connection from my wii to ensure that nintendo dont update my firmware or anything, how does bricking happen am i safe using the homebrew browser? i dont intend to play backups all I want to do is use the cheat manager on the gecko OS and play NTSC games on my PAL wii which apparantly ocarina and gecko allow is this safe to do??? BTW my system firmware is 3.4 and its staying that way!! despite nintendos constant annoying emails telling me to upgrade.
3. Just if anyone could give me a complete idiots guide to the jargon terms I would be grateful, just remember people, you were a newbie once!!! thanks guys!!
