hey,im a total noob to wii modding but i have read ALOT ,but im getting more and more confused on what to do the more i read, ok so i have an old first production run wii ,really old system menu version,i forget which 1 tho,(i thinks like 2.8or 2.5its really low),with a broken non d2-3 drive,that i want to fix or replace (minus the d2-3 motherboard ,of course)before i get started modding anyway,i was thinking of using the latest modmii version (4.5.1,i think it is),to mod my virgin wii,but i noticed that the usb loader wizard section for using a loader with a ntfs partition only mentions cgf loader, so can i use modmii(latest version)to mod my wii and install and use wiiflow and usb loader gx,with a hdd(2tb) formatted with 2 partitions,1 fat32 and 1 ntfs partition?and be able to put .wbfs games on the ntfs partition and rip games to the ntfs partition? also i know this prolly a real noob question but do all the latest versions of the 3 main loaders i mentioned above(or any of them)rip the games to the hdd,weather its ntfs or wbfs partitoned ,already "scrubbed"?i remember reading awhile back that you had to rip the game then put it on your pc and use an app on your pc to cut the iso file down from the 4.xx gb file size to a much smaller .wbfs file(if you wanted it to take up little space as possible),so is that a thing of past now?wil the new usb loader versions just rip my game to the hdd,to either a ntfs or wbfs partition as the smallest possible size .wbfs file? also i would like to have all 3 loaders installed ,just like i have many different loaders on my JBen ps3 ,so i can switch it up if i want,will that be a problem? i've read about different loaders using or needing different ios's or cios files(not really to sure what they are or how they work,despite all i read and watching the 08'ccc team twiizers wiihacking talk video on YT)so can i just install all the files(latest version or latest "rev"ios's&cios's)on my wii at once, and then just be able to select and open/load any loader i want from a forwarder channel on my wii system menu ?or will i have to keep installing and uninstalling different ios or cios files evertime i want to use a different loader?dont the ios or cios fies occupy certain "slots". i thought that i read something about 2 of the loaders using ios 249 and the other 1 using ios 222 or the other way arround,but im not really grasping the whole ios, cios thing so,im not sure how it works exactly,can they all(all the ones i need for all the loader to work) be installed at once? or do they both need to be in the same "slot"so that i have to pick 1 or the other to be installed at once? i tried to find a way to explain this easy below but i can seem to be able to, i just want to know if i can use all 3 loaders (wiiflow,usbloadergx and cfgloader)at the same time with out having to delete and add new ios or cios files into my wii every time i want to switch to using a different loader,i am really confused about ios and cios files,what they are and what "slots"are and if you can install all the latest versions of all the ios and cios file that you will need for all games and all the loaders to work, at the same time,so i can have all the files i need for everything to work installed at once,without having to delete and install system or ios/cios files all the time what i mean is will i only be able to install the ios or cios or whatever file the loader needs for 1 loader?if i want to use another loader and it needs a different ios or cios to be installed to the same slot the other loader needs the ios/cios file that works with it to installed to ,and that ios or cios needs to be installed to the exact same slot,for the loader to work,then does that mean i will have to delete the ios or cios that one loader needs form that slot and then load a different ios or cios that the other loader i want to use needs into that same slot?
