    I know you can install the Twighlight hack on the 3.4 but it says the save erases everytime. Does that mean that I need to install the HBC everytime? Or will it install once and then I can run HBC just like I can with 3.3?

    Thanks

    you need to copy over the hack and then run the exploit quick and install HBC, it only deletes the save file not HBC.

    Yeah, it gets rid of the TP hack only. Downgrade to 3.2 if you want to be able to keep the hack on your system.

    Might be a dumb question but why do I need the TP hack to stay on the wii once I install the HBC? I would figure it's only necessary to install HBC and then you're good to go so why is this an issue?

    because it was useful when you bricked or semi bricked, you could autoboot zelda and then load a file from the SD using the hack to recover your wii.

    oh ok - thanks.

    One other point - with 3.4 (as opposed to 3.2 and 3.3) is it true Nintendo can auto update the fw? Also - some games force upgrades - so what happens in the future when a new game comes out and forces you to update? Will it be a cat a mouse game or is there someway around updating but playing the game?

    There is no such thing as autoupdates. And if you're on 3.2 you can use Starfall to block disc updates. You can use Preloader to do the same thing on any firmware version.

    Preloader only works on 3.2 and 4.0, make sure to get version 0.29 if using with 4.0

    assuming though I am on 3.4 and I don't have the ability to install preloader, the only way to install is via disc. I guess I should downgrade to get the preloader ability. Wish it worked on 3.4

    I'm on 3.4 and holding out for BootMii, rumored to be released soon.

    This is what i was taught

    install hbc with twilight hack first

    1. use ios-downgrader
    2. use ARC to downgrade to 3.2
    3. Install preloader 2.8
    4. install cioscorp
    5. install cmios
    6. install rev7 on up your choice

    that is to be 3.2
