    So I decided to install DARKCORP (The full version) on my Wii and just as expected, I ended up with an upside down Homebrew Channel because IOS58, which the HBC was using, got patched. How can I make DARKCORP and the HBC coexist without an upside down HBC? Would either of the following methods work, assuming DARKCORP is uninstalled (I plan to uninstall it and retry):

    Delete the IOS58 WAD from DARKCORP's install folder, meaning it doesn't get modified and the HBC is safe

    Install DARKCORP first and allow it to use IOS58, and then reinstall the HBC with a homebrew exploit so it finds an IOS that wouldn't be patched by DARKCORP.

    I have BootMii and a backup, so it shouldn't be a problem if I brick the system.

    No, just install a fresh unpatched version of IOS58.

    Would the IOS58 Installer be safe to use? How would it conflict with the modified 58? Would it overwrite the modified 58?

    Yes, you wouldn't be able to play burned games that use IOS58 (which all suck anyway, and you could still use NeoGamma), and yes.

    What games are known to use IOS58 anyway? Cause I might go with DARKCORP then HBC reinstall if there aren't any games that are under my radar. Maybe I'll just reinstall a fresh IOS58 and sacrifice whatever DARKCORP does to it.

    Like three games that use some USB camera. I know one of them is Your Shape. They all suck.

    I don't have any games that use a USB camera. I guess I'll just have to choose between sacrificing USB 2.0 on a clean HBC or sacrifice the changes made to it by DARKCORP. I'll go with the clean IOS58.

    You don't need to re-install the HBC. Just re-install IOS58.

    Okay, I'll just do that when I have the chance. Thanks for walking me through all this.
