Hello, Following on from an earlier thread, I have decided that my wii's drive is dying (very poor reads of legit and backups). It is a PAL launch wii, v3.2e and is softmodded using TP hack + "The backup suite v4.0" which essentially installs: ...WiiGator 0.3g NeoRame WiiIsh V3 edition with 002 fix (aimed at 249) ...WiiGator 0.1 NiceColorEdtion mod by WiiPower with entryholder (aimed at 247) ...SoftChip SVN r76 (selectable IOs, recommend 248 and 249) I also have the following installed: Gecko OS Gamecube Backup Loader Starfall. I have ordered a replacement drive which is premodded with WiiKey 2, should be coming soon. Now I don't run much homebrew, the softmod is just to play backups with. I know the hard/soft mods can live together, but I was wondering: a\ is it worth removing any of these? especially since they're not really needed? b\ if so, is it just a matter of using wad manager to uninstall the wads? c\ should I just update the system and that will sort everything out? or is it silly and should I keep it 3.2e and d\ would not removing anything have any detrimental effect on the performance of the chip? Thank you in advance for any replies!
