    Been a long long time, and now I need help please!

    Hey, It's been over a year since I've downloaded or burned any games, and I just went and DL'd 3 games, I was planning on just doing what I always do and burn the ISO to a verbatim dvd-r and playing. However, I've been reading here and on another site and it seems like just about everything has changed. Obviously this is to be expected, but now I don't know if this method will work. Also, I just went and checked my Wii and it looks like my husband ran an update and now am on version 4.1U. My Wii was bought in June 08, I'm not sure which chip I have (how do I find out?)
    I am really confused by everything I am reading (USB, Neogamma, etc.) This stuff didn't exist last time I DL'd. I am just feeling very confused and lost about everything.
    I have read a ton of tuts and other sticky's here and I just can't find what I'm supposed to do. I don't want to brick my Wii.
    ModChip Depot did my chip install.
    Anyways, I just need someone to tell me very simply what I need to do, or please point me in the direction I need to go. If I didn't give you enough info, please tell me what else you need to know. My region is NTSC.
    Thanks for any help you can give!

    You can still softmod you Wii [cause even though you have a chip that doesn't mean you will keep up with all the correct IOSs in order to run certain games] In my sig you will see a hacking guide for 3.1-4.1 and follow those directions, and you should be good to go with newer games.

    But by all means try the new games you have downloaded first, and make sure they work before doing any mods. And report back and we can get you in the right direction.

    Thanks for your help!
    I DL'd new super mario bros and that didn't work, but I figured it wouldn't judging by other people's comments.
    I just tried band hero, I put it in, the title came up with the music, I clicked start and then just a black screen and I had to hold down the power button to get it to turn off. I tried it 3 times, It didn't work at all.
    Is there like a super dummy guide to get all the correct IOSs on my Wii? I really don't understand what to do and when I read it it's just really confusing to me.
    I feel like the biggest N00b since I am pretty good with computers and all that stuff, I just don't get this other stuff

    ETA I'm going to try again and ask q's in the sof mod thread if I have any. Thanks so much!

    Just to help with a few things you mentioned: neogamma is just a program some people use to launch games. Usb is an alternative to burning your games to discs. Lots of people don't even use dvd's anymore.

    If you have a thumb drive or the right kind of external hard drive you can simply put your downloaded games on that, plug it into the back of the wii and use a loader (like neogamma rev7) to start them.

    I haven't looked recently but the new smb game seems to give some people fits when trying to load from discs. I put mine on a thumb drive, launched with neogamma7 and it worked like a champ.

    Finally, I'm sure you've seen it around but be sure not to update thru nintendo to system menu 4.1 cause it kills homebrew. Hope this helps a little! You'll catch back up.
