    I'm taking a hack at this ...

    Hi All -
    I've been a PC gamer since I sold my original Playstation in 2000, but decided to pick up a used Wii for my kids for Christmas. I knew nothing of modding, and only vaguely remember hearing it was possible years ago. So, in buying a used electronic device of any sort, I did what I would always do; wiped all the old owners settings and tried to perform updates ... but they didn't work. And, of course, the cute Disney Princess "My fairytale Adventure" game I bout my daughter doesn't work - it's asking to perform an update off the disk.

    So, I started reading, found something that talked about homebrew and priiloader so I held reset and powered up. Presto! this box has a prii loader! It's been modded!

    So now I need to read up, update the mod, update the IOS's, reinstall the homebrew and see where this takes me. I've been reading a efw hours and I'm about to walkthrough the "Softmod Any Wii" guide to get started. I'm sufficiently tech savvy so this doesn't intimidate me; it's just learning a new language.

    I'll keep reading around but if anyone knows anything about the fairytale adventure game right off the bat, I'd be glad to hear it. I'm guessing at this point that I just need to get the updated IOS's installed ...
    Oh, yea - and Amazon Prime video would be nice if possible ... but I'll keep reading and searching for answers.

    Sounds like you are on the right track. Go through softmod any wii and you will have an updated system. Be sure to include the sections about shop channel v21, then you can access shop channel and download the free challens available such as hulu plus and netflix. I don't recall if amazon video is available for Wii or not, but if it is, it will be there and you can use it presuming you have a Prime account.

    Up and running! I did the Shop Channel Update and ran the Amazon Instant Video channel as well. I love awesome, well-managed forums. Now, to read about putting disk backups and media files on a USB Drive. I've been backing up DVDs to save them from my children's clumsy little hands for awhile - I guess it's a good idea for games too.

    See the FAT32 guide linked in my signature for more information on how to do that.

    Same for me regarding kids hands on DVDs and games. The any Wii guide has a link in it at the bottom to the fat32 guide, which has instructions on formatting and loading games to your HDD.

    Edit: or check llaffers signature for it lol
