    I haven't updated my Wii as far as homebrew goes in the last 6 or so months. If I wanted to install all the current homebrew apps and IOSes etc do I have to do any housecleaning like delete old ones or uninstall certain wads etc?

    Not very hard.If your on 3.2 it's very easy.If your on 3.3 or 3.4 it's a bit more work.Follow some guides and you'll be up to date in no time.

    Never uninstall a system IOS.

    Most wads (like cIOS Installer) don't need to be uninstalled before installing the updated version. You can usually just skip right to the latest and run it to make it work.

    Best advice: Read.

    Yeah.. before I hacked my Wii I spent a VERY long time reading EVERYTHING on this board about what to do and how to do it. So now that it's been 6 months I'm overwhelmed and scared to dive in again.

    I would stay on 3.2U and keep StarFall (actually this is what I am on.)

    If you have a cIOS, cIOS36 rev09 is now out, so you could update that.

    You can play the new PunchOut! game, just see if it will load on your Wii. If it doesn't, you can use WiiScrubber to see which IOS's the game uses and then compare to the IOS's on your Wii using AnyTitle Deleter. If it uses an IOS you don't have yet, extract it from the ISO and install it through Wad Manager 1.3.

    I followed this guide you might want to do Method 2 if you're US/EUR. I think the problems I'm having in this thread may have stemmed from doing the non-trucha way, which is Method 1, which I used.

    Ok so I'm thinking of

    1) doing an update through one of those guides

    2) installing USB loader

    3) installing softmii

    not necessarily in that order

    sound good?
