    I just today got a new wii from ebay and have noticed it has homebrew installed,
    The homebrew channel version is beta 9 the wii system menu is at 3.2e,
    I was wondering if it would be safe to just start xzxero's guide now and get all the latest stuff and updated to 4.2e,
    Please reply.

    There's no necessary to upgrade your Wii cause 3.2 version is fine.

    What about the homebrew channel I already have,
    Would it be appropriate to remove it and then proceed to the soft modding guide?.

    If you upgrade to 4.2 the HBC will be removed.

    If you update your HBC before updating it wont be removed. So just run Hackmii Installer before you follow the guide.

    Of course you can, if you update the Systemmenu, the old HBC will be removed anyway. So just follow the guide to get a virgin Wii or install the new version of HBC before updating the Systemmenu. So you dont have to reinstall it later.
    Its your choice!

    I already answered your question. If you dont remove in manually it will be removed by the update. And no that isnt a problem.

    I don't recommend you to upgrade your Wii if you're planning to use USB Loaders instead of DVD Launchers.

    Too late,
    I did it and I have 4.2 all working homebrew [​IMG],
    1 minor problem: my homebrew channel is upside down [​IMG].

    HBC does that when you enable fakesigning on its support IOS. Simply re-install HBC via the HackMii installer, same process you did before. It will not upset any of your other hacks, it will just fix HBC.

    make sure your ios61 is NOT patched before (or after) reinstalling the HBC, this will make sure it is not upsidedown

    That's not entirely necessary. You should have at least one non-patched IOS, but it doesn't have to be IOS61. For example, on my Wii it's IOS35. My HomeBrew Channel is supported by IOS35 as identified by pressing the home button while in the HomeBrew Channel.
