    Well i might buy it. I don't have any experience other than ds stuff (i use to have a r4 messed up.)
    Well can nintendo track me down if i use this hack?
    If i install the homebrew channel can i delete it?
    Can i update my firmware if i use this hack?
    Are the emulators at good support. (great speeds and compatibilities?)
    What emulators are out?
    Are there good homebrews out right now?
    anything else i should know about this hack?

    I don't under stand on "update my stuff"

    if you install the homebrew channel you won't need twilight princess to boot a .elf anymore.

    No, you need to load the twilight hack everytime you want to pop the wii into "homebrew mode" so you will need your own copy of it [​IMG]

    if the twilight hack gets updated yes you need the disc.


    for emulator updates you just need to replace the emulator .elf with the new version.

    If you use the Homebrew channel you only need the Zelda disk once, which would suite you perfectly!
