    i had a wii softmod 4.2 and i update to 4.3 accidentally

    so the homebrew was gone and usb-loader don`t work anymore
    but i had still WAD-manager as a channel and that still works , i got the homebrew-channel back

    dus this works on every wii ? to put on the WAD-manager as a channel and if you update to 4.3 you can still put the homebrew back on your wii ?


    sorry for my bad english [​IMG]

    a forwarder channel of any sort works better, as u can launch any app u may need not just the one embedded in ur channel. But yes, forwarder channels or hardcoded channels will survive official updates.

    That's why as part of extra brick protection, ModMii installs a usb-loader forwarder channel

    ok but how do you use the usb-loader forwarder channel to get the homebrew-channel back after a update ?

    Just put the dol file of the hackmii installer in the place where the forwarder points to

    so , when you update your WII , just put the .dol file on a usb-stick and open it with usb-loader ?

    A forwarder channel (such as one for a USB loader) loads SD:/apps/*app name*/boot.dol. Therefore, if you replace the boot.dol in that folder with a different one, then it will load that app instead.
