    No, that's only necessary if your Wii is @ 3.1

    Now in relation to the DVD-Rom assessment suggested by you made I respectfully disagree because before having done the softmod I did open the Wii and checked the pcb/circuit board of the dvd-rom and clearly noted the following facts;

    a) IC 3001 is totally missing no chip no epoxy nothing

    b) IC 2001 is the large black chip it has no markings whatsoever on it ie blank

    c) my Wii serial # is LEF1224 which has been noted to have a D3V2 dvd-rom

    So my question is how come now I cannot play/load original GameCube disc when it worked a few days ago with the softmod already done but now no play?

    Also since you can see that I wish to use my Wii more so for the GameCube compatibility mode can I ask you if you would recommend I use the ULoader as I have read that software will allow me to play GameCube backups. I'm just very concerned using more IOS files which might make my hacked Wii behave even more erratic. Can you suggest other than WODE another way or safer software that I can install.

    Also if I want to return to my pre-softmod state would you recommend I do a Bootmii NAND reinstall of my backup? Or what steps and software should I uninstall so that I can play original GameCube games on my Wii?

    Thanks matey arghh...
    The tutorial's target audience is primarily for Wii games in terms of softmodding. That being said, yes you can also play gamecube games, but that involves a further, minor modification as spelled out in this thread. Also, there is a method to burn more than 1 GC game to an individual disc; the tutorial for that can be found here.

    If you ever want to "virginize" your Wii back to what would be considered factory state, check out this thread.

    On the D3-2 issue: check the drive's PCB's serial #... odds are it starts with an "E" as opposed to an "F" and would be a D3/D2 nothing (as opposed to D3-2).

    Hi nightstah,

    Well that was a lot quicker than the update to 4.0, a quicky for you if you dont mind, in the guide 3.1 4.1, about priiloader, is it a good idea to have it installed ?. as i believe its main purpose is to stop disc update checks, (which i suppose is a good thing).
    also I read in a post that the update to the shopping channel can have serious consequences if you have priiloader installed, would you have any info as to this problem that some people seem to have.

    Also i take it these are a must have:
    IOS38-64-v3867 }
    IOS50-64-v4889 }these for newer games
    IOS53-64-v5149 }
    IOS55-64-v5149 }
    and of course neogamma
    is it possible to also install hermes 222/223 or would this conflict with neogamma.

    thank you for your time & patience nightstah

    oh and yes it made me smile too

    The next step?

    Thanks to all who have given advice and input on my issue.

    Alrite. Now I have successfully upgraded my firmware from 3.3U to 4.1U using the offline method. At this point, I would like to re'virgin' my wii to remove any softmods that have been done.

    Can i follow through dogeggs tutorial on making my wii a virgin? Is it safe for me to run NAND clean and AnyTitle Deleter since I upgraded using the offline method and not using Waninkoko's 4.1 online updater?

    Or can anyone recommend me any other method and advice on dealing with this issue?

    Thanks!

    The original responder would be incorrect if you're specifically talking Wii game backups. If you're talking DVDs as in video, then yes it's required. Also, it's required for certain emulators. The best source to read on this would be here. I thought I would provide some clarification on the issue.

    Question: why (do you want to do this)? You have been given an answer, just curious...
