    a forwarder channel does not contain the actual dol itself, but only a small loader that will load a certain dol from a fixed location on sd. if the application gets updated, all you have to do is to replace the file on sd
    waninkoko's updater only installs what is necessarry and leaves the trucha bug intact.

    Consider a forward channel to be a hyperlink that links a channel on your Wii Menu to a dol on your SD card.

    No. But if you want to enable Trucha back for a particular IOS, you'll have to do it manually. Might wanna try TBR (Trucha Bug Restorer)
