    Softmod as well as Chip? (If so, what tutorial?)

    Hi there,

    Haven't used the Wii in many months (its chipped, and as far as I can remember its with Wiikey 2).

    After trying some new games recently, i'm finding its not reading many of them (all my old games work fine), and I have heard soft modding would allow it to play them all?

    Few questions, is that correct? Even though I have Wiikey 2, using a softmod would be better for being able to play all the unreadable games i'm having atm? And can it even be softmodded while the chip is in?

    If so, is there any recommendation to what guide to follow? Hoping to get it right 1st time, don't want to mess it up

    (My Wii is PAL with the most recent updates)

    Cheers in advance

    I hope it is ok to jump into this thread. But I have contemplated softmodding my own Wii with a wiikey fitted. I do however, already have the homebrew channel installed as well as bootmii.

    Most guides seem to assume you have neither of those ti begin with. Is it best to approach softmodding as though you have nothing installed and reinstall as you follow the guide? Thanks.
