    Old softmod needs to be upgraded, point me to exact directions please?

    I softmodded my wii a long time ago using the Twilight Zelda hack, I want to say something like 2007 or early 2008. This is what I still have:

    Nintendo Version 3.2U
    Homebrew version: 1.0.1 ios36 v4.18

    Some new games just dont work. Namely, Mario Galaxy 2 and Michael Jakson Experience. I believe this is just because my hack is super old and needs upgrading both nintendo software version and hack. I could be wrong though. Anyone have any idea? Old games work fine: Galaxy 1 for example, works perfectly still

    So, if I need to upgrade the Nintendo version and or hack can someone point me in the direction of exactly what I need to do? I found this:
    Bannerbomb Guide
    But before I go doing anything, i'd feel more comfortable getting confirmation. What do I need to do to get these new games working?

    First off you need to read the
    Site rules and try your best to abide by them.

    Now we know the rules its time to find the right guide for modding your wii, I recommend the

    The Softmod Any Wii Guide by Mauifrog

    This guide works for all wii's

    And Bluphant's noobs guide - Basic introduction to wii hacking

    There are also other guides which you can find in the
    Guides and tutorials section

    Once you have completed the guide you need to ascertain if your wii is capable of playing backups via the disc drive or whether you need to be usb loading.

    Wii's post 2009 generally cannot play backups via the disc drive and have to use usb loading.

    I recommend usb loading anyway as you can add an remove your games easily and there is no wear and tear on your disc drive and no messing about with discs etc.

    What you will need to know -

    What drives are compatible -
    Usb Compatibility list

    How to set your drive up -
    Loading and Playing Wii Backup Games from USB HDD

    Once your HDD is setup and ready to go, you will need a program to manage your games!
    Checkout Peire's

    Now your set up and ready to go, but you run in to a problem with one of your game backups -
