    Outdated Wii Softmod

    Hi Guys,

    It has been an age since I have last done anything on these forums. Back when the TP hack was only just new I soft modded my wii, and I think the last time I did something with it software wise was when orange chicken release snes wads which was a long time ago.

    Anyway, I was just wondering on how I would go about updating my wii without bricking it to be compatible with the latest hacks again, on cool new things I have missed out on (I can see usb launching is now possible) and any new traps from nintendo that I may have to dodge (I want to start using my wii online).

    Thanks in advanced guys!

    Thanks for that! Guide looks very well refined and idiot proof, let's hope I can do everything properly. Any cool new things I should attempt with my wii, any channels that you recommend?

    EDIT: Never mind, I just reached the end of the guide and found the channel suggestions. Amazing guide, thanks!

    I have come upon a bit of a problem, with the latest bannerbomb install is comes up with "this channel cannot be launched on this wii console" and using any previous versions will freeze up the whole wii. Might it have something to do with the old softmod I had? Any chance formatting the wii might fix it? I thought I had the homebrew channel installed but looks like I don't, even though I still have some wad installed games on there (like orginal super smash bros)

    Don't know what you mean by SM but it froze when I placed the sd card in the machine after clicking on the sd card button on the wii main page

    My house mate, seeing the wii set up, got excited and went to play a game, just updated my system to 4.3... Guess it is time to try that smash stack thing

    System menu....

    You can use letterbomb which is a non game exploit or smash stacks.

    Out of interest what game did he try to play that needed a update?

    I should mention all of this is so we can play skylanders: spyros adventures, as I haven't been following the community I am not sure if you can play that with a soft modded wii
