I do not know WTH I am doing...and I am afraid to mess up my boy's modded wii
I am pretty green with this. I bought a modded wii last year for my son, and recently he saved his money to buy a game called Skylanders Giants that does not recognize the portal, so I began doing some research on this site to see what it would take to update the wii because I know it has not been updated in a few years. I will not lie, it is confusing to me. I have read the softmod ANY Wii guide several times, and frankly, I do not know if this is hard mod/soft mod or just a soft modded wii that I have. It has the SD card with the homebrew channel installed, and it has a hard drive with the games on it. I guess I have two questions at the moment.
1) How do I know if it is just a soft modded wii? I do have the wii_syscheck file if that helps.
2) The softmod ANY Wii has me formatting the SD card using my PC three times during the process. Why? And I presume that each time I format the SD card I am suppose to make a backup of the data, format, and then put the backed up data back on the SD card before proceeding to the next chapter?
thanks for your help!
