HBC and wii updates..
Probably a question that's been asked many a times.. so apologies there..
I've just updated the HBC to 1.01, but my Wii is still on 3.2E.. I've had a look around on the web but can't find any defining answers.. so hopefully you can help!?
I'm soon to take delivery (I hope) of HotD:Overkill, but am worries that it won't play without the latest version of the Wii Software..
First of all, what is the latest version of Wii Software? 3.3 or 3.4? ?
If I do get forced to update, will HBC 1.01 still work? or will I have to re-install using the Twilight Hack? Or will it be completely blocked?
Thanks in advanced

Sorry.. corrected my OP.. I was mistaken to what version I was on..
But the questions still stand.
OK, well I've since got the game (House of the Dead:Overkill).. and I need'nt of been worried..
As it played without updating and I didn't have to sacrifice my Homebrew :Punk:
But After investigation for a little while I got my answer..
So As I get so many views and no responses, I guess on-one knew..
The answer I was looking for was, Yes and update will stop my homebrew.. there is an update to the Twilight exploit, which deals with the 3.4 update.
So thanks anyway :rolleyes::cool:
If you have HBC installed already using the "Bannerbomb Exploit", you can update to the latest Wii Software menu (4.1U) I have and HBC works fine ,

If you'd like to try follow these instructions,
Tutorial written by Dragon Core
My own precompiled kit that allows you to run homebrew, run your own burned games.
This kit contains:
Bannerbomb aad1f_v108 (To boot ELF or DOL required for installing HBC).
Hackmii 0.2 package (Homebrew Channel 1.03, DVDX, Bootmii).
Backup Launcher Gamma 0.3 (For running backups). cIOS_Installer rev 7
Optional: Backup Launcher 0.3 Gamma and Gamecube Backup Launcher 0.2 WAD version. These are for System Menu channel installations.
Requirements: Wii, Wiimote, SD card of 2Gb or under 2Gb (System Menu under 4.0), SD card reader.
If your System Menu is 4.0 or over SDHC SD cards are supported.
Note: Micro SD in a SD card adaptor is tested to work as well.
The reason for 2Gb and under is because SDHC is not supported by the Wii System Menu's under 4.0 officially and is only supported in Homebrew Channel 1.03.
If you happen to have a decent laptop the chances are that it might have a built in multi card reader, use that to save some dough.
1. Delete everything from your SD card and make sure its in FAT16 (FAT) or in FAT32.
2. Drag "private" and "boot.elf" into the root of your SD card. Safe remove your SD card.
3. Turn on the Wii.
4. Go into Wii options which is the button on the bottom left hand corner.
Click Data Management. At this point you can insert the SD card.
Click SD Card.
If all goes well there should be a banner that pops up that tells you to load ELF or DOL click yes.
5. Wait for the press 1 and press it.
6. Click A
7. Install Homebrew Channel
8. Install DVDX
9. Reboot and remove SD card.
10. Put the SD card on your computer's card reader, delete the SD card's contents.
11. Drag "apps" folder to the root of your SD card. Safe remove SD card.
12. Put SD card into Wii, boot up.
13. Run Homebrew Channel, choose the program you want to run.
For Backup Launcher 0.3 Gamma CIOS provided must be installed before you run it.
Note: I never use the last option as I think we don't even need it.
In apps folder you can also add your own programs.
WAD version of Backup Launcher 0.3 Gamma and Gamecube Backup Launcher 0.2:
If the bannerbomb crashes during launch, try another version:
SD/USB Loader 1.5
Gamecube Backup Launcher 0.2
Mplayer CE 0.7
