    Hello,

    I'd like to have confirmation on small things :
    Currently on 3.3v1E (with HBC, cios36rev7 and gamma), I aim to do the less patching as possible in my NAND.
    Installing new things (custom WADS or cIOS) doesn't bother me, but I don't like the idea to alter existing and official 'things' (SM Wad and IOS).
    What if I update through nintendo to 4.1E and just install : Hackmii installer (hbc + dvdx) + cios38rev14 + NeoGamma R7 ?
    The problem is : what will not function correctly due to the "non-patching" of IOS36 and IOS60 ?
    I think :
    - Starting a custom channel in SM from SD won't work (IOS60 non trucha patched)
    - Using some homebrew like AnyTitleDeleter won't work also (IOS36 non patched)
    Is this right ?
    Will WadManager 1.5 still work (entirely) if it uses IOS249 ?
    Will HBC still work (I've been told it uses IOS36 so ...) ?
    Is there an alternative to AnyTitleDeleter that uses IOS249 ?

    The aim of this thing is to be able to simply uninstall everything without leaving any mark if I want.
    If I want to delete everything, will I be able to delete IOS249 ? I think it will be problematic with WadManager if I start it with IOS249 ? [​IMG]

    At last an unrelated question :
    Currently with gamma on 3.3v1, I can launch backups through disc channel, if I do the "start with hooks" tricks (B button in gamma menu).
    I've tested it with a 3.4 (not mine) and it was broken (the banner appeared in the disc channel, but the backup didn't started (an error was triggered).
    Is this fixed with NeoGamma R7, and do this work in 4.1E ?

    Without installing anything to nand, it's not possible. You really need a cIOS installed. But that's it already, all other stuff is not required, but HBC installed is nice. But what DVDx for on a minimalistic hack?

    And the rebooter in Gamma only works with 3.2 system menu i think, while NeoGamma R7's rebooter should work with all system menus.

    Further requirements for the rebooter are:
    - NO preloader installed
    - cIOSrev7 or rev14

    Thx for your reply.

    Gamma's rebooter works also with 3.3v1 [​IMG].
    R7 rebooter requirements fit me completely [​IMG]
    Installing 'new' things (custom WADs or cIOSes) to NAND doesn't bother me, what I want to avoid is patching existing things (official IOSes, SM).
    DVDx, it's for reading Video DVDs with MPlayer (on SD).

    You don't need DVDx to play movies from sd. And there's some AnyTitleDeleter mod that runs off IOS249. But installing a patched IOS36 doesn't really harm, as long as it's the only IOS you overwrite.

    I think we misunderstood ourselves but do you mean that if I launch Mplayer (the version that plays DVDs) from SD (with HBC) I can play a Video DVD (inserted in the Wii DVD drive) [​IMG] ? (because that's what I wanted to do)

    Both posters above me arent helping. You need DVDx to run any DVDs through homebrew applications such as mplayer or emulators so in response to your question, yes you do need DVDx.

    And he says he wants the least patching as possible. For his case (and paranoia), cIOSCORP absolutely THE worst thing he could do (next to bricking his wii).

    As per beegee, yes you need DVDx if you want to watch movies on your wii.

    That's what I thought too about DVDx, just wanted the confirmation ...
    I absolutely don't want cIOSCORP ... worst thing ever ...
    I'd like to have the confirmation on HBC, will it work correctly with IOS36 not patched ? will it use IOS249 to work correctly ?
    Another question, if I want to erase everything and have a 'virgin' Wii back, is it possible to uninstall IOS249 (without having any other patched IOS) ?
    If it's too complicate, I'll patch IOS36.

    Thx very much for the replies.

    HBC doesn't need patched IOS36, it works with normal IOS36 as it doesn't need to be SU.
    And for the Removing, comex made a formatter which runs under Bootmi/MINI and deletes everything from NAND (and then installs a systemmenu). Maybe it just deletes everything, wasn't clar from the readme.
