New to the scene, have a modded wii. Haven't used in a while, what do i need to know?
Hi, sorry for being such a noob. I have a modded Wii, it was software modded back about a year ago. I am trying to figure out exactly what I need to do in order to play the new Mario game. I read the tutorial for 3.1-4.1 Softmods by Doggeggs (great tut btw), but still have some questions. So bear with me...
As I mentioned I have a softmod, and do have the homebrew channel. My Wii version is 3.3U, so I think I need to do an update (still reading up on how to do this...). My main concern is that I didn't get a backup on my NAND when my Wii was modded.
A) The process identified in the tutorial, can i safely assume that the person who modded my Wii went through all those processes? Do I need to worry about installing any additionaly tools, security controls, bootloaders, etc?
B) If Wii is similar to other system modds, do you need to upgrade the OS occationally (forced upgrades to play new games). If so, what is the best approach to this. (i.e. Do we need to disable softmodd while updating, or is it safe to update over the softmodd.)
C) Not having a NAND backup... how big of a concern is that? How often do you need to recover with a NAND (I assume its only needed when Wii bricked)
D) How awesome are free games. :-)
