Softmodding an exsisting MODchipped wii
Hi i have a wii that was modded with a modchip some time back. I am wondering it it's possible to Softmod the wii with out taking out the modchip? If not is there a way to load on homebrew channel on my wii so i can you GXloader and those things?
Just follow the guide for your system menu. Hard mod doesn't affect softmod and vice versa.
So i can leave the mod chip in and still just follow the same soft mod and doesn't affect it ? GREAT! thanks alot
Yes indeed. Make sure you follow the CORRECT guide for your system menu version. ( 3.1-4.1 dogeggs guide - 4.2 Messie or ShadowSonics guide) Stick to one guide only and make sure you complete every step.
If you would like to thank someone just click the little thanks button at the bottom of the post.
Cheers and good luck!
I have done this. The only downside is that it essentially eliminates the chip, thus having caused you to waste money sort of. . . .

If it's already hard-modded you can play backups , no need to mess with IOS'es to get them patched or replaced or whatever . Also ,you can't do accidental disk or online updates . Is Priiloader really necessary in this case ?I'm thinking of a softmod as lightweight as possible if you're already chipped

You have to complete all the steps in the guide... otherwise you will not have a sucessful softmod and you could brick.... FOLLOW the guide to the "t"
