Thanks for reading my thread. I've been disconnected from the Wii-brew scene for a good few months and a lot of developments have happened, some of which I understand and some of which I don't. The following is my current Wii softmod setup. If you would not mind, please check out what I have installed below and then please give some advise insofar as some utilities/programs that you think I should have (and what benefits that those utilities/programs would provide). I don't mind being pointed to other threads; But, I would really appreciate a few nudges in the right direction. - Original launch Wii OS 3.2U - Installed HBC w/ Twilight Hack - Installed IOS51 & Wiishop with Tona Installer (in Nov 08) - Added Backup Loader Gamma R2 Wii Gator - Used Waninkoko's CIOS Rev_10 installer (in May 09) - Used Waninkoko's Firmware Upgrader to go to 4.0U - Used Firmware-Updater_4.1 on (In July 09) - Used Waninkoko's Rev_14 installer (Aug 09) - Installed IOS61 & Wii Shop in (March '10) - installed Waninkoko's cIOS rev 20 with 12411-cIOSX_rev20b-Installer on 11/14/10 - Manually updated the Homebrew Browser to 0.3.9b (Nov '10) - Updated to Wad Manager 1.5 (Nov '10) Today I tried to install a wiiware .wad for the first time and got the "-1029" error. So that prompts this whole "Maybe I am missing something" mindset. So that's everything. I'm on 4.1U. I have had zero problems playing games from Configurable USB Loader, but I would like to be able to do the following: - Access the Wii Shop channel again - Update to the latest firmware version, if I should do that? - Be able to install .wads for Wiiware games, etc. - Also, I've never messed around with BootMii (I don't have it installed), should I? Any help is SUPER appreciated. Thanks a lot, people!!
