    Good evening all. I'm a bit of an amateur on the hacking front with the wii and (fortunately) I have just managed to discover the whole homebrew scene between the 23rd October and 18th November.

    Having had the 23rd October update on my machine I followed the downgrade instructions and installed the shop update afterwards.

    After that I was able to install the 0.3 gamma launcher and have managed to get a backup working fine.

    However, I now want to put Starfall on my machine. I understand that I should use Ciosdowngrader to go back to v3.2e and then install Starfall.

    I'm just wondering whether I can actually do this considering the path I followed. I've tried to search to no avail so I wondered if anyone can advise!

    Thanks.

    If you are on 3.3U then you should be fine. I personally liked the cIOS downgrader. Worked for me and the people Ive refered to it perfectly. Ive never used the anyregionchanger so I cant comment on it. cios downgrader requires wifi though. Not sure if the other one does.

    Don't use region changer to downgrade use waninkoko's IOS downgrader it's much safer.

    I keep hearing this, but it's only unsafe if you misuse it isn't it?

    No offense but why are you telling people this when you don't know why it's not as safe.

    I too am on 3.3E and would be interested in doing this.

    I take it the method is exactly the same (in principal) to downgrading from 3.3U ?

    Thanks

    Gambia, The
    Using Waninkokos downgrader did not work for me, I had to use Anyregionchanger. Worked very well, btw.

    Ok, it turns out I am on 3.3E (but not the Oct 23rd one). I have also installed the Tona Installer (for IOS51 and Shop) - which took a lot longer than I thought it would actually. I am assuming that in this state all the IOSes still have the trucha bug ?

    Anyways, if I have a WiiKey installed do I still get any benefit from installing Starfall ?

    Also, watching the youtube clip at Wiibrew ... are they using the HBC to run apps over the network (when it says checking 192.168....) ? If so, how do I do that ?
