    Question Need your advice on if to virgin or upgrade?

    Okay so I created this thread about the DVD Read Error 249 with what guide I used to downgrade my Wii at the time. HERE is the thread. Now, I'm not sure what else I put on it besides those guides but I vaguely remember reading another thread to fix a problem I came across on dowgrading and soft modding or if i'm just thinking I did more things.

    I want to make sure I got everything down and was wondering which guides I should use based on me getting everything I have installed on my Wii. Should I virgin my Wii then re-softmod it? Or install the necessary things to my already soft modded Wii? Thanks for your help.

    System Check:

    Code:

    use dvd-r dvds and burn on 2x.
    If you've done everything correctly, you shouldn't have any probs.
    p.s dvd+r don't work.

    It's always a silly idea to virginize in order to resoftmod. Why not simply fix what's broke? Do Not Downgrade. It's an out of date method and is no longer recommended.

    Is it okay that I have Starfall installed? Do I have to do anything before I install the things you mentioned?
