Update, please help...
I softmodded my wii about a year ago and never did anything with it. I wanted to go into the Wii Shop channel but now it's telling me I need a system update before I can do that. I would like to update and I don't care if I lose the softmod but obviously I don't want to brick my Wii.
I used the mod on this site, can I just do the update without totally screwing myself?
I recommend updating your softmod. Head over to the Softmod Any Wii guide (link in my sig) and start with the spoiler labled "Softmods with HOMEBREW CHANNEL installed." Part of that guide is updating the shop channel. You could just update the shop channel, but since you did the mod a year ago, it could really do with an update.
Well to tell you the truth it doesn't even have the SD card in it anymore, I probably needed it for one of my children's Birthdays. Honestly I couldn't care less about the mod since I could never get my external to work I gave up. I just want to be able to use the Wii again fully...
Well, updating the mod would do that for you. And removing a softmod can be dangerous.
We never encourage people to accept an official Nintendo update!
You can accept the update and it will kill your mod......and should not brick your wii. If you have priiloader installed and configured properly then the update will be blocked. You will have to hold in the reset button while you power on the wii and priiloader will load so you can disable the update blocking hacks.
Your other alternatives will involve an sd card.
#1. Follow the softmod any wii guide and enjoy all the goodies that you were trying to get when you attempted the last mod.
#2 Update the shop channel with this guide.
