Hello All ! I have been out of the Wii scene for a very, very long time. My how things have evolved and grown ! I have an original WiiKey installed, and everything seems to be working great as far as playing backup discs. However, In lieu of the fact that my drive will likely give out soon, I am looking to attempt to run a Usb backup loader. However, since I have been gone so long, and so much has changed, I was hoping I could reach out to someone here whom has kept up a bit better than I , and may be able to point me in the right direction as to where I need to go to find out what I am capable of doing / should avoid at all costs. The dust on this thing is quite atrocious , to say the least The wiikey is running the last firmware that was released for it. Do I still need to softmod my system ? There was a time there where I had played a bit with some cIOS , and beleive I am on rev.249 . I would like to get the lil guy current with the latest mods, Can someone help a lost (but knowledgeable) soul into updating this thing so i can be proper once again ? I would simply like to mess with a bit of homebrew, as well as boot my backups from an external HDD. I know there is a bit of info about this already here, but having scanned through, most of it seems almost as outdated as my modchip :/ Help, please ? Thankfully yours, .oO(DT)Oo.
