Howdy guys and gals. TripEllex here, returning to the fold after about a year's absence. For those of you who don't know me, I'm an old salt from these forums, returning after a long bout of shore leave. During that time, I can see the scene's changed quite a bit. New tools, new firmware, new strategies. So, I'm requesting a bit of assistance to help me get my sea legs, as it were. Now, before I jump into the questions, let me be clear on a few things: 1) Be aware that any questions I ask aren't asked lightly. If I ask it, it's because I have thoroughly exhausted the search functions here, on WiiHacks and Wiisos and have yet to find a definitive answer. 2) I humbly request that if you can answer my question(s) maturely, please do so, and if you instead plan on trolling or flaming, to not waste neither your time nor mine, as it will be promptly ignored. and lastly 3) I assure you I'm not asking for download links to anything, nor am I asking for tutorials or instructions on how to do anything. My questions are merely basic knowledge, should I/shouldn't I questions, nothing more. And so, a brief rundown on my system: it's an original launch RVL-001, Twilight Hacked system. Firmware's still on 4.1U, cIOS rev 10, cIOSCorp 3.1 (I believe) and HBC 1.0.1. BootMii's installed on Boot2, and Preloader is also installed. Not sure of the version of the last two. Early versions, that much I'm sure of. USBLoader GX (updated) and Wad Manager 1.4 are also installed as redirect channels. Now for my questions (finally): A) Is there any benefit to updating the system firmware to 4.3 with Wani's latest system updater, or am I still safe on 4.1? B) Have there been any major cIOS releases and/or patches I should be aware of in the past year? C) I'm still using Herme's original WBFS format with CISOs on my 320gb WD drive. Should I switch over to another FS now? D) Same for cIOSCorp. Any reason to still use it or update it, aside from the benefit of playing backups? E) Any other tips/suggestions on bringing my system up to date? F) Any software/homebrew I should be researching and using that's been release in the past year? That's all. I appreciate any help any of you can sincerely offer, and your patience while I get caught back up.
