    hello all. its been while and i am out of the loop (again).

    i have...
    ----------------------
    Wii 3.2u
    WiiKey1 v1.9s
    HomeBrew Channel 1.03
    IOS38-64-v3609
    IOS53-64-v4113
    IOS55-64-v4633
    Internet Channel (original free version)

    i play on backup disks, only NTSC-U, rarely ever play VC games, BrickBlock all .ISOs before burning


    i would like to...
    ----------------------
    update Wii to latest safe FW
    play the newest games (ie CoD:Modern Warfare Reflex)
    still play all my old backups (no trucha signed disks)
    still use Internet Channel
    keep all my Mii/game save data
    be able to use High Capacity SD cards (dont really have the need for it though)
    boot VC games from SD card (is this possible?)
    finally figure out wtf Gecko is used for (will i be able to play PAL G-1 Jockey?)
    be able to use USBloader once i get a new portable hdd (is 500gb big enough for a large collection?


    how do i go about updating to 4.1 and whatever else that needs updating?

    could someone catch me up, please? thank you

    so far so good, but one question...

    in the Modify 4.2 part, after i completed this section...
    ...my HomeBrew Channel flipped upside down. did i do something wrong?

    everything else seems to be working ok. (i havent tried playing any games from disk yet though.)

    You need an original IOS installed. I just installed an untouched IOS 61 (shopping channel) Then installed HBC again and it was fine

    i seem to have fixed it by uninstalling and then reinstalling the HBC.
    it is now right side up again, using IOS61.
