    Hi guys! I have a question about Modmii.


    I'm currently at the stage where I'm reading this instruction:





    Okay, my IOS is currently IOS61, and the Homebrew channel is NOT upside-down.
    Do I still need to DOWNGRADE to IOS58? From IOS61? Or can I leave it alone? Is there something bad about IOS61 that I don't know about?

    it's not a downgrade, you're just changing what ios is used by HBC.
    It is advisable to change the ios that HBC is using so that all your homebrew apps will run
    the benefit of IOS58 is that it brings USB 2 funtionallity, thus improving load times through USB. (eg USB loaders)

    USB loaders dont use the USB 2 stack of nintendo, bus most homebrew use it
