    Hello my helpful (hopefully) fellow forum-goers.

    I have a few questions about Wii Hacking as I can't really make much sense out of all the stuff on the tutorials. I have a Wii with Bootmii installed as a Boot2 and the Homebrew Channel installed but that is as far as I have gone with my hacking. My few questions are this.

    1. I see a lot of talk here about loading Wii ISOs. Do these come from a simple external HDD or a more complicated setup?

    2. What extra programs would be needed to run these ISOs?

    3. I think there's been an update to the system menu since I installed the HBC I know that Bootmii is untouchable in its Boot2 state but am unsure as to what would happen if I were to use the update button.

    4. I see talk of custom Wii Channels, any advantage to this or is the HBC enough?

    There may be more questions from peoples answers.

    Any other general basic programs I need for hacking and exactly what they do? I already have Bootmii and Homebrew Channel in though I haven't backed up my Wii yet and its annoyingly on the same card as all the rest of my homebrew. (I'll try and find another to use)
