Hi everything... sorry about this. but recently brought a wii and i been searching this forum for days now and i've been itching to ask this here. My wii is a PAL 3.1e and my serial begins with LEH1972XXXXXX. So it is a D2C2 chipset. I know you need homebrew channel to install any kinda of backup loader (gamma). and i also know that you need to do the twilight hack to install the homebrew channel and starfall to stop new firmware updates. but I want to ask, 1) what is the highest wii firmware i can go upto when installing homebrew channel? 2) do i still need backup loader to play games if i get my wii chipped? (planning on doing DIY with the solderless Wasabi Zero when it comes out) 3) will i still be able to play online with either backup loader or modchip installed? 4) when installing homebrew channel and if it bricks the wii, how do i unbrick it? 5) if i want to remove homebrew channel and backup loader channel, which software/program do i need to use? 7) is there a way to get Virtual Console stuff for free? if there is... how? 8) (i know this been asked lots too...) but which modchip is the best? im planning to buy the wasabi zero only because its new-ish. which modchip has the ejecting disk problem? does the old wasabi have that problem? before you say.... yes i've searched and i got some answers too.... but most of them just confused me even more. so thats why i posted this. thanks in advance.
