I have recently bought a Wii Black PAL (4.1e). I am planning to softmode it following the tutorial "New 3.1-4.1 Softmod for ANY Wii" by Dogeggs. Before that just two questions that are still not clear to me.
1- I have bought the original Wii Fit Plus game and balanceboard. The Disc ask to update the Wii. Should I do it now before I softmod the wii, after or never?
2- The IOS I should add to the wii to run the games are retrocompatible: I mean if I update a IOS to run a new game do all the old game working with a previous version of the same ios still work?
3- After softmodding if I use an original game should I pay attention to avoid it installs sth?
Thanks a lot
After you softmod you will be able to manually install ios files the games need to run. You will be able to block disk updates with apps like preloader. An updated revision of an ios file contains the previous info as well.
