    WiiShop and 2 year old softmod

    Hi all! I softmodded my Wii from the great guide here back in May 2011. We stopped using our Wii completely for over a year and now that we are using it again, everything is running fine except for the WiiShop channel which is asking for a system update. I looked around the forum here and I see that I can update it but will this require a complete re-softmod of my Wii? My Homebrew channel updated when I opened it. I don't remember how to check the file/app versions on my SD to follow the proper guide for either installing the Wiishop update or updating my softmod entirely (if that is required.)
    Any help is much appreciated and thanks!

    We are currently working on a new Shop Channel Update guide, but you can use this one and it will work:

    Thanks SNES, so I take it that I do not need to update the softmod completely then (4.3u)? I haven't updated/patched anything since the original softmod in 5/2011 and am not sure of my current ios. Any specefic requirements I should check for first?

    Hmm, if your mod is that old? Do not update to 4.3, it's a waste. Just go through the Softmod ANY Wii guide in my signature and that will bring your Softmod up to date

    I was unclear... It is already 4.3u. Sorry to ask. Just want to be sure. It's been a while. What I meant was that I see in the changelog that there have been many updates since I originally modded it and am asking if any of those are required before updating wiishop. Thanks for all of your help

    EDIT: So should I still update my softmod then?

    They shouldn't be but it is a good idea to do it anyway. I wouldn't really be able to say without seeing a SysCheck.

    When you load the Homebrew channel press home and it should be displayed on the top left and right of your tv.
