    Well I saw that you can make the Homebrew Channel work on 3.2u without doing the twillight hack, so how can I do that?
    thanks in advances.

    if you have a modchip, use the iso (http://hbc.hackmii.com/download/) and burn to a disc.
    if you have no chip, the twilight hack is only the possible way

    with a wiikey it should work yes.
    use it to install the homebrew channel and then install the wadmanager, it will allow you to install wads.
    be careful though, as a corrupted wad may brick your wii.

    well you just have to be careful.
    only get your wads from trusted sites with real scene releases, and you should be fine.

    Yeah, avoid "injected" wads (basically VC games that have had the game replaced with a different one so people can play N64 games that aren't available in the Wii shop) and avoid homebrew applications that have been converted into wads/channels. Mainly because a corrupt wad can wreck your Wii but also because installing homebrew as channels uses the internal storage on the instead of the SD card AND it makes programs a pain in the arse to update.

    In summary: Only install the Homebrew channel and run homebrew via that and only install scene-released wiiware/vc wads [​IMG]
