    question about step 1 of softmod

    My question is about step 1 listed in this guide.

    It seems that I use the bannerbomb v1 to run the hackMii installer. Then the hackMii installer installs The Homebrew Channel and BootMii on my machine, right? My question is; what do these things do exactly?

    I know that bannerbomb is required to run the hackMii installer. But what do The Homebrew Channel and BootMii do? Do I still need them afterwards?

    EDIT:
    Nvm, I think I found the answer. BootMii is to be used if I brick my machine so I need to keep it. However, The Homebrew Channel is just for launching homebrew, right? Do I need it to launch all homebrew apps?

    The HBC is used to lauch homebrew

    Bootmii is for brick protection, you will need it to do a nand backup in case of a brick

    Nectech,

    In the future you should ask your question in the guide you are following it's less clutter in the forums and it's just easier that way.
