    I've heard a lot of people saying they've bricked their Wii trying to make custom channels and all that, so it has me a little paranoid. But...is it safe to rename the file name of a wad? Or is the file name tied with the channel or something?

    Sorry for the dumb question [​IMG]

    Sorry, i can't answer that, but i really recommend you before trying to install ANY channel, do preparations for for a brick. If you bricked your wii without preparations, you are in a lot of trouble.

    I have 3.2U and if I've comprehended right, all I need is Starfall with the Rescue menu and the Skip Diagnostic Check mods installed, right?

    And thanks for the answers, guys! [​IMG]

    You also need to install the twilight hack on your wii. Having Starfall on will be useless unless you can use it to boot the TP hack.

    How can you install the TP hack on the Wii? I've been reading here for a while and I've never seen that mentioned.

    TP hack installed on the wii just means TP hack savegame on your wii. If you can execute the hack from Zelda, you have the hack installed.
