Before anyone tells me to do so, YES, I have searched the forums and other websites, and I have spent several hours trying to find some definitive information. But I have found some conflicting information, and need clarification. First of all, I have the latest 3.4u firmware. I have successfully used the latest Twilight Hack to install the latest Homebrew channel. I have seen one guide on here that tells me to do the whole IOS downgrade procedure, then downgrade the firmware to 3.2u, then install the WiiGator backup loader. But it seems this would leave me at 3.2u firmware. Would that cause any issues? Like would any games, or channels (Shop Channel) no longer work? I want to run backups while making as few changes to the system as possible. A friend of mine says he uses the GeckoOS loader to run backups. However, I can't seem to find any posts that say "Hey! Install this particular version of Gecko OS, and it will load backups." I have seen there are different releases of the latest version, but I can't find any info showing what the differences are. So, what version of GeckoOS 1.07b will load backups? And can I run this and load backups without downgrading anything? What is the easiest way to run backups on my 3.4u firmware using soft mods only??? Thanks!
