System Update - Noob Help Required
Forgive me. I am a proper noob when it comes to this.......
I bought a chipped Wii and the guy told me it would be fine just not to update from NTSC discs.
Everything was fine until I purchased some copied games from the markey the other week. NONE of them worked. They ALL said a System Update was required and I am a bit wary whether to do this or not as I have heard some scare stories and I am also unsure if the discs I have are PAL or NTSC.
If they are PAL is it safe to update like the guy who sold it to me said it would be? I dont want to brick it?
From some searching it seems I should be running menu v 4.1 ( I'm currently running 3.3 ) by updating this would it allow my newer games to work ( FIFA 10, Tiger Woods 10, etc )
This is where it gets complicated - I really dont know what to do.
From what I have read I copy some stuff to my SD card and run it - I just dont feel very comfortbale / confident of doing this. I did download something called ' Offline Downgrade / Upgrade ' and selected prepare.bat and choose v4.1 - but it just gave me a load of BAD files. So I dibnt want to copy these over on to my SD card.
I'm at my wit's end
