    Need help updating Wiiflow v1.1 R25

    A friend of mind who is not a noob like me softmodded my wii a few years ago and it's been great, no problems. I recently got SkyLanders Giants for my son and am unable to use the power portal. I load games from a hard drive that is connected to one of the usb ports on the back of the wii. The power portal doesn't work in the other usb port.

    I figured I'd post a sys check and get some advice from there. I read that guide but I don't have the homebrew channel, so I stopped there. I read the softmod any wii guide, figuring that would tell me how to install the homebrew channel. It does, but I don't think I want to overwrite my current softmod. I've never had any problems with it, I just want to be able to use the power portal with the Skylanders game.

    Are you sure you don't have HBC??? Scroll all the way across your channels, maybe they hid it from you.

    Having a mod that was done a few years ago means that you will likely need some updating to run skylanders. Did you make an introduction post and read the info provided in the response?

    In the meantime, maybe you should try the game via the disc and see what happens.

    I didn't make an intro post, but did come across one from another member and took a look at the links that were provided. I'll keep reading, I know the answer is there. I'll also look for the Homebrew channel. I only scrolled over 1 screen and didn't see it, but maybe it's further over. I tried playing from the game disc but was prompted to do a system update. I don't remember much that by friend told me about softmodding, but i do remember he said never to do a system update.

    Definitely doesn't have Priiloader installed then (your Wii, I mean). Were you trying to play this from the disc channel or a backup loader? I'm guessing the former...

    If you're playing via USB, likely you do have HBC somewhere (but not Priiloader).

    I scrolled all the way across and didn't see HBC. My friend sent me a link to pimp my wii and said that would update everything. he's the same guy that did the softmod the first time and i trust him but i'm too much of a noob to feel comfortable using that. I'm re-reading the softmod any wii guide now.

    Read the first line of THIS, then go back to the softmod any wii guide.

    I finished reading the softmod any wii and fat32 guides a couple times, so I'm pretty comfortable but have one more question. If I follow the softmod any wii guide, will I have to do anything else to continue playing my backup copies from my hdd? I don't have to reformat and/or partition my hdd do I?
