    Couple Questions

    I just got a First Generation Wii.
    I think it is Version 2.0. What softmods will I need? Can I still install the Homebrew Channel?
    I am just looking for someone to point me in the right direction.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hey thanks for the help.
    I am following those directions and I downloaded the files and put them on my 2gb SD Card.
    I put the card into my Wii.
    When I go to Data Management > Channels > SD Card the wii freezes completely before I even get a chance to look at the contents and I can only reset it by unplugging the power cord. Any ideas?

    Try formatting the SD card again [making sure it's FAT32] and put the contents of the download back onto the card.

    It's already in FAT32. I did that before I even downloaded the files.

    Okay I just wanted to clarify.
    The wii I have is one of the first ones released.
    It has NEVER BEEN UPDATED. So it is still running the original system menu. I think it is 2.0.
    The Guide you posted is called New 3.1-4.1 Softmod for ANY Wii.
    That sounds contradicting. 3.1-4.1 sounds like its talking about system menus and I have 2.0. Should I be updating first? Or is there a different softmod I need???

    You could still do the homebrew install and then using Waninkokos updater you will be at 4.1. I mean you could do an official Nintendo Update to 4.2 but i wouldn't do that. You could also look into NUS to download system menu 4.1 and install it, but you would still need the HomeBrew Channel installed with a wad manager to install the System Menu.

    So accessing the SD card is NOT an issue with my Wii and its System Menu version. I just reformatted again and am gonna try for it again.
    I will post the success or failure in a few moments.

    It is just a regular SD card made by PNY.

    I'm about 100% positive you can still do the 31-4.1 system mod guide to mod your Wii, I am actually going to contact a MOD to find out for sure.
