    Hey there... yep im new [​IMG] and I've got a small question... If I had 3.4E and then decided to downgrade to 3.2E and load HBC and the custom/manual ios files ... am I in danger when upgrading? This is because all I need the hbc channel is for gamma loader and thats it. And now I've got that I was wondering what will happen if I upgrade... will my wii brick on me? Because with my pal mario kart it asks for an update and im unsure what ios to use... as I believe its "IOS33 "... should I load it as its asking for an update or manually load it or what??

    Use starfall or preloader to block disc updates.

    You don't need to mess with the firmware. You only need to install IOS16 and with it, you can install the cIOS and if you want channels. And the HBC is installable in 3.4 anyways.

    Even if it's the real one, it still just a piece of plastic.

    If the attachment is important, the Wheel should be released by Nintendo, else, that thing would have the seal of Nintendo

    Seriously, cut your naiveness already.
