Any insights would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
simply look through the "forum" in this section and you will find how to..
You can use a Game to upgrade.
Or use the Cios Downgrader or Any Region Changer to get to 3.2
yep if you have HBC which you should do, just download the apps, they are available all over this "section"
Excellent!! Thanks guys!
once you've done that, and your on 3.2 which is "considered" the best "safest" firmware, which it is!
install starfall, and install all patches except the health replace with back menu. i didn't remove BGM as it's boring
* Region free GC games with video mode patch
* Region free Wii games
* Region free channels
* No mainmenu BGM
* Start rescue-menu when Y is held on 1st GC controller
* Remove rescue-menu diagnostic disc check
* Replace healthwarning with backmenu
- Replace healthwarning with backmenu
What is that? Dont understand.
"OMG" cant you figure it out, your back menu of your wii yeah....soon as you boot up your wii, you wont be prompted with the health disclaimer, it will boot direct into the system,
if you install it and one day you feel daft enough to install untrusted wads and end up with a banner brick, it will "Cause serious problems" as it's choking to a halt before it gets into boot. (that's why you should always keep the health screen on!)
I'm on 3.2U, have the "Replace healthwarning with backmenu" on on Starfall, and still install wads with no problems.
Even if they're "bad" wads and you get a banner brick, couldn't you use the "Start rescue-menu when Y is held on 1st GC controller" to load a disc with Wad Manager 1.3 and delete the wads?
Or just know what you're installing before you do it. I hate the healthwarning screen.
As far i know is the Healthwarning the time in there the Channels get loaded by the System.
So what is an "backmenu", just an black screen?
Backmenu is the scene displayed when you go back to menu from any title... first full black, then channels fading in and out... that scene is the backmenu
So, is what DJD said true?
If you have the "Replace healthwarning with backmenu" option switched on and you suffer from a banner brick then you're screwed?
...and no I don't want to try it to find out!
There is the recovery menu possibility so you don't get screwed 100%
Yeah, so even if I have all options enabled and I banner-brick, then I can still Hit 'Y' on the Gamecube contoller and boot from my original Zelda boot disk, run the save hack, wad manager and remove the offending wad no problem?
I like the "Replace healthwarning with backmenu" option, so I would like to leave it on.
*edit* I've just realised I've asked the exact same question as Summersett.
Can someone confirm either way?
having the health screen removed with backmenu, makes the nand choke, so you probably cant recover as easily as you could if you didn't have it on.... it's brilliant having it installed if you aren't dealing with "wads you don't trust" etc etc, better safe than sorry, having the health screen delays the boot process, therefore the nand wont choke immediately and will easily boot a game or wadmanager etc.
Also many people who have "patched the health menu" get a immediate BLANK SCREEN, so unsure if you can boot zelda or whatever....
That's the reason not to have it on!
I've already tested that I can boot TP with the health menu disabled and ran wad manager no problem.
Are there any examples in this forum where it has caused a problem?
I used the site's (crappy) search facility, but couldn't find posts/threads confirming what you say.
Well of course it should boot if you insert the disc before powering the wii on... but you'll notice it will boot after a bit of time the channels are displayed... even there is time to peek a banner of a channel...
The fact with the backmenu patch is, if your wii is bricked and it freezes or pukes out an error before channels get displayed then the disc also will not boot... problem is minor... you can boot into recovery mode and boot from there... It could be annoying for those without recovery menu facilities...
it is safer to run 3.2 with starfall so you can take advantage of the recovery menu
Hmmm...ok thanks for the explanation guys.
Looks like I'll enable the health menu again.
yeah wiicrazy is right, personally i'd keep it on, you always have the chance to boot your wad manager or zelda etc, but it's "easier" if you don't patch the health menu, in some cases the discs wont boot even in recovery...
