Hi guys, This is my 1st post and I am new to here. This forums is great and I learned a lot in these couple days. I appreciate all your input in this site and I would welcome any advise for my case below. I bought a LU38 wii 1 week ago, it comes with 3.4U. Then 2 days ago I run hackmii installer 0.2 + bannerboomb to install HBC, DVDX (seems dvdx not working, not see it on menu) and bootmii as IOS (my wii doesn't allow to install as boot2). I can run HBC on my wii now, tested ftpii, HBB etc., works great. Before I hack the wii, I read a lot of information online, some FAQ/guides recommend stay on 3.2, or 3.4, don't upgrade to 4.0, but after I spent 2 days and try to make the USB Loader works, I found 3.4 seems the worst version (at least to me now), the CIOS36 rev10 can only install on 3.2 OR 4.0. I did found a guide here mentioned how to install cios on 3.4U but seems it's still need to downgrade the IOS etc, I am not sure if this will give me any trouble in the future mod/hacks. So, my goal is have the USB LOADERs works and has WAD Manager installed. Can someone : 1. explain the benefit of 3.2? and should I go to 4.0 now? I know new games need new IOS and seems 3.2 can also install additional IOS to play new games, just has no SDHC support (I don't need it as I will have USB HD/stick). Any comment on the advantage/disadvantage on 3.2/3.4/4.0 will be welcome as I need to pick a right version which good to me 2. Can someone give me a IDEAL design for my case? I want brick prevent, USB LOADER/WAD MANAGER, future downgrade/upgrade flexibility. So maybe you can suggest me like the sample below(This is I can think about based on my very limited knowledge and confused concepts): a. Use 4.0 system menu as it's hackable now, follow this guide below to downgrade to 3.2 and then upgrade to 4.0 (why not upgrade to 4.0 directly??) http://www.gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=144835 b. install USB/WAD c. install preloader to prevent brick d. install bootmii to backup nand? e. ...(any software MUST TO HAVE or RECOMMENDED in my case will be welcome) As of I know the CIOS36 REV10 can't install on 3.4U directly (-2011 error), I read a lot of topic but confused myself totally. I don't know if I should stay at 3.4u or down to 3.2 or down to 3.2 then 4.0 or upg to 4.0 direct. So, I need your input to help me on the questions above. Thank you very much !!!!
