Getting lost now but appriciate all your help.
Im not sure what my chip and the sticky mentions utility disks and i need a programmer which i dont have.
Should i just forget about the chip altogether as it has been finished aswell.
So im now thinking softmod, should i just update via the net so i know there will be no problems with the region and follow a guide to softmod ?
Just so your not confused.. the 3.1-4.1 guide will update you to 4.1. Which is where you want to be at. So if you choose softmodding don't accept a nintendo update, and follow the guide.
Damn I suck!!!!
Very nice guide maybe even i can follow, lets hope.
So 4.1 is looking where i will be going once i get an SD card.
Would this one do the job ?
Play.com (UK) : SanDisk 2GB SD Memory Card : Electronics - Free Delivery
If not could you please point me in the right direct on the site.
Thanks again for putting up with my stupid questions.
Sandisk 2G is what is recommended for the guide so you should be good to go once you have it.
Just to be clear since I just got done explaining it to someone else.
The softmod opens up a window and provides an interface to manually install all the system files needed, without having to accept the deterrents that would also normally come along with an official system menu update. You will still be able to use the modchip like you were, but you will be able to install necessary files into the system memory yourself and also (if you choose to) have other loader options to provide more flexability to game playing and adaptation to nintendos individual disk detterrents. You will even be able to use usb harddrives or flashdrives to install the disk based games onto.
All sounds good to go then, thanks so much and i will get one ordered before bed.
Im guessing i just leave the chip there and now use the softmod.
Read through the guide and seems ok, is there anyother guides i will find helpful in getting the games working.
You might consider both options. Softmoding and Oddgriffins. His doesn't require you softmoding but the choice is yours and both are good.
