    A question about the channels

    Hi guys,
    I'm new at this whole wii hacking thing...
    Anyways, I want to softmod my wii using this tutorial.
    I'm currently running a PAL 4.1E wii. Bought it about a year ago.

    Problem is, I saw in the vid clips that I will be left with only 3 channels-Disk Channel, HBC and Preloader or something like that.
    If you have no idea what am I talking about, it's in the last clip, last couple seconds. Anyways, is there any way to re-install the MiiChannel, Photo Channel, Forecast Channel etc.?

    Second question is, can I update the Wii after softmodding it? Is there any danger by doing this? If yes, what is it?

    Final last question, does NeoGamma R8b7 loads all the games?

    Sorry for being such a noob, I just don't know shit about all of this.
    Thank you for helping!

    Omer.

    NeoGamma r7/8 will load 99% of backups.

    NEVER updqate your Wii after modding if you like your homebrew and playing backups. It will kill all these functionalities. I've also heard that the 4.2 update could possibly brick your Wii [even un-modded ones]. But this is rare.

    As far as the 3 channels part, that will not happen to your Wii. You will still have all the channels you normally would. They just deleted all the "unecessary channels" so it's easier for the user to see what channels they will mostly be using.

    Oh okay thank you very much! Say, can you just tell me which games don't work on NeoGamma r7/8?
    Another question, how do I add channels, such as internet and media player? (after I downloaded them off-course)

    They must be in .wad format not boot.dol [those have to be run through the HomeBrew Channel] Or you can get foreworders as .wad that will be shortcuts to your boot.dol entries. Just use Wad Manager to install the .wads and they will show up as channels [this goes for foreworders or the actual channels as well].

    As far as what games don't work, I can't even tell you. I never came across a game yet that didn't load properly through NeoGamma.

    I... Didn't understand nothing of all this. To install new channels, I should use an SD card, put it in the Wii, open the WADManager and then install it?

    On the root of your SD card should be a folder called "wad", throw any .wad file into that folder. Then use Wad Manager [with default settings] and have it load through the SD card. Then you'll see an entry called <WAD> just choose that and all the .wad files you put in that folder will show up. Just select them and install them. Easy Peasy.

    Oh, got it. Okay, thanks! I'm starting hacking in about an hour.
    Wish me luck!
