    Red face strange situation.

    OK, im sort of a newbie, but not at all at the same time. i soft-modded my daughters Wii using the twilight hack several years ago. so somebody was dumb enough to update it to 4.3, from 3.3.
    anywho- the homebrew channel disappeared all together, but the backup launcher channel is still there. it disappeared im guessing after the upgrade, then popped back up a few days later. now- i have the files i used still to mod it to begin with.
    my questions are-
    do i need to completely redo the mod? or can i simply downgrade it again? before i go any further, i have in the files the CIOS down-grader v 1.2 and i also have IOS down-grader 1.0- i cannot remember which i used. if someone could verify which one i outta use that would be fantastic. i am pretty sure i will remember how to work it once i get to it on the Wii.
    so- if i can just downgrade, will this mess up the backup launcher? or do ya think its already messed up? my girl threw all the games i burnt for her away..silly girl.. cause the backup channel disappeared. i burnt off animal crossing for her, but when i put it in the Wii, and tried the channel, the screen was black and i had to restart cause it froze. i do not know if this is caused by the channel itself, or maybe if the disk burnt incorrectly. i used 2x speed, maybe 5x's will work better? now- if i have to redo the entire mod, is there a different backup channel i can use? i dont want to have to go and get zelda just to get a bkup launcher. i realize that modding has come a long way since i did it in 2008, i need to play burnt games, i have no usb hard drive. this was all quite confusing the first go around, and i am unclear as to what to do now. i need easy, and step by step instructions. ha! i know there must be a thread here, but i wanted to find out exactly what i needed to have IF i had to completly remod.
    help appreciated guys!

    awesome thanks again!

    can i use a memorex dvd-r 8x 8.5 gb disk to burn games onto? its what i have right now, i just wanted to see if it would work, or if the wii would disagree with it.

    ok, can i use a 8x 8.5 gb disk for games, or will the wii disagree? also, i have installed homebrew n all that. now i am doing the nand backup- i have 5 black bad blocks. is that bad?
