    Should I uninstall WiiKey before install softmod

    Hello i'm new here, and after 3 hours of reading the forum i'm getting lost.

    I have a first gen Wii, I bought it the day it came out.
    Soon after, I installed the first gen WiiKey.
    I've just been playing burned copies of Smash Bros, Zelda, Mario, and have not played any new games that required a software update.

    I just found out about softmoding a Wii to play games off of USB drives.
    I would like to try to do this since i'm tired of burning DVDs.

    Do I need to uninstall the WiiKey before doing the softmod?
    Should I update my firmware to 4.1 or 4.2?

    I'm not afraid to rip my console apart to experiment. I just can't figure out which way to go from the hundreds of tutorial online, and in this forum. I'm trying to find the best method for my particular hardware to run games from a USb drive, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    no, no need to uninstall a modchip (wiikey or whatsoever) unless it's defective or a trouble-maker
    i got a wii with wiikey-clone ( shame !) and just leave it there and be able to play all latest ISOs, flawlessly, after softmod.

    yup, update to 4.1/4.2. judge yourself which Tut fits well to ur best understand and action
