    Well... I've been away from the Homebrew Scene for over a year, now, and it looks like several of my newer game backups fail to load in my backup loaders. So, hopefully, my friends here at GBATemp can help me out! =)

    First off, here's a sysCheck snapshot, of my main (Launch Day) Wii:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Below are some of the application versions I currently have installed:
    • Wiiflow v1.1 r42 (IOS249 rev20)
    • USB Loader GX v1.0 r938 (IOS249 rev20)
    • BootMii Public Beta v6
    • The Homebrew Channel v1.0.8
    • IOS236 Installer v5
    • Tantric's IOS58 Installer
    • Custom cIOSX Revision 20b
    • Hermes v4
    • StartPatch v4.2.4 (Only using to block disc updates)
    • WAD Manager v1.5
    • WAD Manager v1.7
    • NAND Backup (Created 2011-11-06, with BootMii)
    What version of Wiiflow should I be using?
    What version of USB Loader GX should I be using?
    Is Waninkoko still coding for the Wii Scene?
    Should I replace cIOSX rev 20b with d2x? If so, what version?
    What IOS's am I missing?
    Which IOS's should I update?
    Is there anything that I should update?
    Anything that I'm missing?

    Since I've been away for such a LONG time, I'm pretty open-minded at this point.

    Thanks, for any and all feedback!

    Download ModMii from my signature. Then use it's syscheck updater feature ("SU" fromt he main menu). It will analyze your syscheck log and get you to update only what is outdated.

    Then if you want to update your usb-loader, use ModMii's usb-loader set up guide ("U" from the main menu).

    Simple as that!

    It's looking quite decent, actually. To answer your questions:

    Waninkoko no longer codes from the scene (afaik). The d2x team continues his work (check the sticky), so yes, I'd update to that. The details can be found on this wiiflowiki page, which explains the bases, slots and (of course) has the latest version. For GX, I'd check the GX sticky in the backup loader section, as I don't follow it closely enough to know the latest version (there has been a huge update, but I haven't properly tested it).

    Modmii is certainly worth checking out for easy guides and having all the files you need, but aside from IOS58 (which you have), I don't think you need to add/update much.

    So... Dumb question... Using ModMii, will my IOS's stay Trucha-bugged? Or does that even matter anymore?
    Also, I noticed that ModMii downloads Priiloader. Back in the day, Priiloader and BootMii did not get along. Is that still the case, or can they be run together now?

    Sorry... I just don't want to screw anything up. Better to ask now, if you know what I mean!
