Softmodded? BASIC info and Advise needed
Hi guys, I hope you can help me. I bought a wii second hand from someone. Because I have never even seen a wii menu before buying this one, I didn't notice anything "different". The guy mentioned a "customized menu" to me.
I've got the following on my wii menu: Disc Channel; Homebrew, Neogamma, USB Loader GX (2 of them); Mii Channel, One or other Photo thing; Weather and shop I think.
We recieved 3 games with it - Wii Sports; Tyger Woods 2008 and Wario Ware Smooth Moves. All 3 of them works from the disc channel.
We then bought Hannah Montana The movie and Wii Fit Plus. Neither of the two would load from the Disc Channel, but works via Neogamma. USB Loader GX doesn't do anything and neither does homebrew (or I don't know how to use them or what is needed). I borrowed Wii Sports Resort from my cousin - It just gives a black screen when I try to load it via Disc Channel or Neogamma and then the wii restarts.
Oh I saw version 3.2E somewhere on it and I don't have an internet connection to the wii at all (the only internet access I have is via my cellphone on the laptop)
After doing some research on the internet, I figured that this wii has been softmodded, right?
Now how to I go about playing NEW Original games on this? I really don't want to battle with it everytime I buy a new game (Yes I do like to spend money on New Original Games) It took me two days to figure out that Neogamme could load the games!
Can I update this to a normal original wii console? If not what does all these channels do? Can I remove them? Do I need them?
Please dont update your consol from disc or from nintendo servers - this could be lethal for your console :/
Easiest and best way for you is to follow guide: softmod any wii by Mauifrog to update your softmod.
If you want to know what you have installed in your wii make syscheck and paste it in this thread.
Thanks Beerfield, I did the system check thing and posted it to that thread. I will now just wait for an answer regarding that and then do I still follow that guide or will they advise?
You have very old and nice Wii which definitely needs to update softmod
Please follow Mauifrog guide and your problems will gone forever.
I'm glad to report that my wii is now an up to date one! Wiihacks ROCK! USB Loader GX won't pick up my usb drive, but Config USB Loader does without probs? Needless to say, I've now deleted USB Loader GX, no use in having it if it won't work. Deleting Channels won't harm hey?
Nah, I'm WAY too scared to skip steps. Followed the guide word for word I had the laptop next to the wii while I did it, so wiihacks was with me all the way. I even made a backup of my scratched game, I've been smiling the whole afternoon, super chuffed!
