    I've got my Wii at 3.2 and used the Zelda hack to get some VC going, but I like to buy games and WiiWare from the Shop channel. Unfortunately, last time I tried it told me that I had to upgrade, which I know is not the best of ideas. I've got a bunch of Wii points on my account AND Tactics Ogre just came out. I'm itching to upgrade but was wondering if there is anyway to get the best of both worlds? I've heard a bit about the homebrew channel but I was wondering if it's possible to install that, upgrade, and continue to install new channels, etc? I honestly haven't done anything custom wise to my Wii since 6mo-10mo back when I last installed a custom (injected) VC...

    Sorry for having become such a n00b, but I'd appreciate some informed guidance before I screw myself over and end up in an non-homebrew friendly state...

    Whoa, that sounds perfect for me. Do I install it using the Twilight Hack or what? I'm quite the n00b when it comes to WiBrew...

    Is there any advantage to installing the Homebrew channel (i.e. being able to run brew off SD Card) if I mainly use homebrew for Injected/custom VCs?

    Whoa. And will I be able to use the saves I've got on the Wii associated with those files right now and will the any modifications be needed for the files (i.e. change the icons, etc)?

    Also, the shop channel thingy, can I run that thingy by the twilight hack?

    [EDIT - There are multiple Wii Shop + IOS51 packs in the link above, is one of the above better? I'd like to keep the Wii Shop channel where it, just have it working with homebrew...]
