Hi GBAtemp, I just bought a Wii yesterday and I'm new to the softmodding scene. My Wii was already soft modified when I bought it and it came pre installed with Wiiflow. I've been reading the forums before I bought my console because I wanted to learn the process of installing USB loaders, emulators, GC backup loader and stuff. From what I understood, you need to have the homebrew channel installed on your Wii before installing Wiiflow or any other USB loaders, but, on my Wii menu, the HBC does not show up. Can anybody please shed some light on this? Does this mean that I need to install the HBC manually so that I can install other USB loaders/GC backup loader/emulators on my Wii? Thanks in advance!
