    Skylanders - Requires Update of Wii

    Hi, please bare with me... Santa has been caught out and is a little green around the ears when it comes to updating the wii. I installed homebrew several months ago and all has been working well with a usb loader so no-one has to change discs anymore .... however, Santa sent Skylanders to my 7yr old, which when you put the disc in says 'wii system update required'. I am not sure if this should be done, or how to move forward. I've taken a system check, hoping that someone can tell me how I can sort this out so I can get the game going. Thanks so much for reading through / helping. (not sure if I've added this correctly as a spoiler attachment or not... fingers crossed).

    You need to install priiloader to block the disc update checks, and you need to update your cIOS. The original disc runs from IOS56, which you do not have. You could install these things individually, or you could update your entire mod using the Softmod ANY Wii guide (it will do all of the above plus get everything current).

    You don't need to uninstall anything. The guide will overwrite everything that it needs to. Just follow it starting at the spoiler "Softmods with Homebrew Channel installed".

    I followed the 'softmod any wii' tutorial and put 4.3e on my wii.

    I too have the original skylanders disc for my son and the game will not load.

    I don't think following the tutorial will update anything on my wii as I softmodded it recently?

    Any ideas how to get my orginal skylanders game disc to play on my softmodded wii ?

    Hey there, sorry for not replying earlier, we have been away. This did fix so that I could play the skylander game off softmod. I had to do some minor tweaking at the end, and change the cIOS to 223 and then it plays fine. There is another thread "Skylander cant find usb hub for portal"... follow the info in there and hopefully it will work for you. Good luck!!
