How to upgrade softmod Wii
I bought this Wii from my friend not knowing that it was softmodded. It has the Homebrew Channel, Wad Manager 1.3, and the Wii Gator 3 Backup Launcher.
I have the Wii version 3.2u.
After further investigation, the only thing I know about the softmod was that he used the Twilight Princess hack.
I was wondering how I am supposed to play New Super Mario Bros? Can I just update the Wii to 4.2 (or whatever is on the Super Mario Bros disc)? Or will this brick my Wii? Is there another process I am supposed to go through?

No game requires the system menu to be updated to 4.2 to be played, in fact, it is recommended to not up date to 4.2, it could brick your Wii. there are tutorials on how to get that game working on your soft modded Wii.
Never accept a disc update or you'll be rehacking your Wii.

So if I were to accept the disc update, then I could start over with hacking my Wii? I have no Idea how my friend did it, but I have been reading up around this forum, and I would like to start anew with the hack, that way I know what's going on. Would that work?
I hate to double post, but I have another question. I just tried to load the game, New Super Mario Bros, and it doesn't come up with an update. It just goes black and freezes the system. Is there any way that I can just format my Wii and get it back to normal?
your wii has been hacked, you may need to update your hacks, not erase them. Look at this tutorial, click here, install BootMii and make a NAND backup (install as boot2 if you can), if you don't all ready have it. Skip step 3, this step hacks your Wii so you are able to install a cIOS, you all ready have one. You will probably need to update the cIOS, so all you have to do is install cIOS38 rev14. In step 5d, make sure to install them IOS's.
Just follow the instructions, do step 1 and 2, skip step 3, step 4 and 5 are optional (install the 4 IOSs in step 5d to play newer games). But if you install preloader then make sure you install patched IOS60 first, or you will brick.
