    Help with a few questions and a thread title.

    I am going to install Priiloader and try to update my softmod. I have USB LoaderGX installed as a channel and am running a few games on a flash drive. My questions are:

    1. The forums say to NEVER uninstall an IOS lower than 200. Tutorials say to install a patched IOS 70 to install Priiloader. I take it the installer just overwrites the IOS, and I am not uninstalling it, correct?

    2.I have seen a few posts with Sys checks with almost every IOS pacthed with Truncha bugs and other things. in my Sys check I just have a couple. Do I need to install all of these?

    3. If I install a Loader as a channel, instead of a forwarder, is that dangerous?

    4. I recently saw in a post that USBLoader GX was updated, and no longer dangerous. Is this true?

    5. Can anyone recommend any other action I should take to have a stable soft mod?
    6 What actually needs to be on the SD Card for a stable wii?

    Thanks in advance for any help!!!

    1. Correct, you will just overwrite.
    2. Those are people whose chose to install cios/darkcorp..... no, you do not need/want to do that.
    3. Anytime you install a wad there is risk. Doesn't matter if it's a forwarder or full install.
    4. GX was not dangerous to begin with (IMO), the new 2.0 version seems to be great though.
    5. Follow the "update your softmod" link in mauifrogs softmod any wii guide (link in my sig) Then follow joostins "update all ios" guide (also in my sig)
    6. nothing, the modding is all inside the wii. I use a fat HD and never even use an SD card unless I am tinkering with stuff ( I keep all my "tools" on an sd card so the kids never have access to them)


    edit: it looks like you may have accepted an update somewhere along the line.....that's why you have stubs in those cios slots (222/223). #5 should take care of all of that though. Priiloader is your friend!

    Thanks for the tips ( and the thread title...).

    1. I understand there is a risk if you install any wad, but which is "better" to install the forwarder or the channel?

    2. I may be slow, but I didnt see a link to the "update your softmod" in mauifrogs guide. If you could point me to the link in the guide, that would be awesome.

    Thanks!

    A forwarder is very easy to update, all you need to do is swap out the .dol in the apps folder. A forwarder also takes up less wii memory. A full channel install requires a new wad, and removal of the old one in order to update. I guess in the long run, forwarders are the "safer" option because you really never need to mess with wads after the initial install. I personally use a full channel for GX, but use forwarders for everything else. Don't ask me why, I just do . I also have bootmii as boot2 so I am not worried at all about bricking.

    In Maui's guide there is a tab in part one called "softmods with homebrew channel installed", ther is where you will find the update section.
