    Hey guys

    Searched this up but still could not tell which is better. I wanna play region free gc and wii backups using their respective launchers on my 3.2E firmware wii, should I use Softmii or Starfall?

    I apologize if this message isn't as coherent as possible, it's 5:15AM over here and I haven't had any sleep.

    Softmii is a set of applications, CIOSCorp and Preloader.

    CIOSCorp allows you to play backups without the need of a booting channel, as it patches the main system files* and allows burnt games to be directly read.
    Preloader is a combination of things, it's like starfall but even better in some aspects. This also patches over system files. It's a fail-safe if you wii ends up bricking, so you can boot into preloader and attempt to fix it. The same codes that starfall has and even more are in Preloader.

    Starfall is something that also patches over system files. This can also save you from bricking, but only in some specific situations. There are a few codes in starfall, but the list is no where as vast as preloaders.

    -----
    If don't mind using a backup channel, then just install starfall hacks.

    If you want (almost full?) brick protection and the ability to just shove a disc in and just play, then SoftMii.

    Personally I wouldn't install softmii, I don't like how it messes with so many files
    There should be a better solution possible: when menupatcher gets an update to work as preloader's autoboot

    Thanks a lot fgsfdsyo! You were very helpful. If installing softmii means being almost fully brick protected then I might do that!

    Is softmii a more popular choice than Starfall?

    Anyway thanks again fgsfdsyo!
