    Okay, so my friend has a modded Wii with a Wiikey and has the Homebrew Channel installed for it already. I would like him to put the must-have applications for it. The thing is, do I really need Starfall? What other applications besides emulators and DVDX should I put on the Wii? He hasn't updated to 4.0 yet, but what tutorial should I direct him to to make sure that everything works when he updates to 4.0 and nothing broken?

    Try MiiWii, it's on these forums and it's by far the best softmod pack available. Starfall just adds extra protection to your Wii, but really, it's best if you combine it with preloader. Though, any of your hacks will be gone if he updates to 4.0.

    most hacks don´t work with 4.0 and starfall only works with 3.2.

    Sorry for the double post but is Starfall a necessity? Can you control...

    * Region free GC games with video mode patch

    * Region free Wii games

    * Region free channels

    * No mainmenu BGM

    * Start rescue-menu when Y is held on 1st GC controller

    * Remove rescue-menu diagnostic disc check

    * Replace health warning with backmenu

    * Skip disc update check

    And enable and disable them?

    Oh yeah BTW, I wouldn't update the wii to 4.0 right yet, Just wait until others find exploits with the new system menu because once you update you will lose preloader and starfull capabilities.

    I thought you control it via Homebrew Channel? Where can I get the preloader and how do I use it?
