first off thanks for any and all input.. although i have done alot of reading.. i'm still cautious on taking that next leap. bannerbomb opens me up to wad manager to install ciosv7 on ios35 but everytime i choose ios35 it freezes/wiimote powers off. Without i dont have a ios249 to install ios36 and hbc.. so can i install a ios249 and then reenter wad manager and install ios36 and hbc to 249 or is the LU70 throwing eveything out of wack? i did notice i have a ios254. although still a noob i feel as if i'm missing something here.
