    I'll try to help you, even though I'm by no means an expert.

    Region free GC games with video mode patch
    I think that this enables GC games to be played on Wiis from other regions without the need to change the region of the console.

    Region free Wii games
    I guess it's the same as the first option, but for Wii games.

    Region free channels
    Again, the same as the first option, but for Channels.

    No mainmenu BGM
    It removes the background music from the main menu. I like it, so I wouldn't get rid of it...

    Start rescue-menu when Y is held on 1st GC controller
    If you have a GC controller plugged to your Wii, then you can repair your Wii if Y is held during the start-up. Extremely useful if you happen to screw while installing something and get a semi-brick.

    Remove rescue-menu diagnostic disc check
    Dunno. I didn't install it, since it sounds serious =?

    Replace health warning with backmenu
    It basically auto-skips the health warning screen.

    Skip disc update check
    It a game you want to play has an update for your console, then this option blocks the update, allowing you to play the game without the need of a newer version.

    I *think* most of them work like this, but I'm sure that someone else will be able to provide you with a more accurate answer.

    Install "Start rescue-menu when Y is held on 1st GC controller" and "Remove rescue-menu diagnostic disc check" and I think you're pretty much brick-proof. If you keep the Twilight Hack save file on your wii and you install a bad WAD, you can use the rescue menu thing to boot up Twilight Princess and use the Twilight Hack to boot up WAD Manager, then delete the bad wad. I think. I read it somewhere.

    You can't be brickproof. Unless you have BootMii. In which you're mostly brickproof.

    Region Free GC games + Video Mode Patch makes the games not work sometimes. I wouldn't install it.

    Region Free Wii games is letting you play other region games. No video mode patch.

    Region Free channels is the same as region free Wii games.

    And my fav patches are removing the BGM and skipping the health warning. Install them. Now.

    Are you kidding? All you need to unbrick your Wii is a GC remote

    you dont need bootmii to install starfall, or for it to work properly. if your wii is 3.2u then install it with all hacks enabled. at least thats what i did.

    ok i did some reading and i found this is it true?
    do not remove disk updates because if you do and you brick your wii you are officially screwed and have no way out of it because when u get a savemii, all it does is boot autoboot disks and looks for an update, if it sees no update you will be stuck with a bricked wii FOREVER

    No. Because you DON'T NEED SAVEMII if you install Starfall with Start rescue-menu when Y is held on 1st GC controller and Remove rescue-menu diagnostic disc check because it will autoboot any game! Twilight Princess, even.

    a retail copy is a copy that is purchased at a retail store. so, if i went to bestbuy and bought a game it would then be a "retail copy". [​IMG]

    drugs work with all games.

    all games, but why would you take the time to go into recovery, just to boot a retail game? huh

    No really I don't have a TP original game !
    but I have the backup , will it work with the auto-boot (Y button) ?

    & do (retail) means that the game has been retailed from the GC ? cuz it is the same cover of the legend of zelda : twilight princess
