    Confused newbie looking for some suggestions

    Hi All. Please help, I have been doing a ton of reading but not to sure which way to go.
    I have purchased a used Wii. It has an original WiiKey Version 1.? also Wii is ver 3.0u.
    First Question. Should I update wii to latest version off internet?
    2. Should the latest WiiKey update and config be done First?
    will either of these brick the Wii?
    Essentially I am attempting to get Beatles Rock band to work? Other games work flawless that I have acquired but not the Rock Band Games.

    I have read lots about cIOS, Homebrew, WiiScrubber, Wii IOS Patcher and lots more and not sure which way to go. Guide me I am your student. O.k that last part was abit lame.

    Thanks in advance for any advice. and sorry for the jumbled post

    Lot of questions in that post. Don't upgrade to 4.2, the latest update on a disc now is 4.1. If you're already softmodded dogeggs has a guide on updating to 4.1 with homebrew still working. After you're on 4.1 you can install preloader to block disc updates because soon they will have 4.2 on them.

    All the music games require a little more work and you can search to find threads on them.

    Thanks. I currently have no soft mods.
    Again real new. The update to 4.1 should be on a game disc?
    I have read how to put homebrew on after the update and hopefully have that figured out.

    if you have no softmod and no need of them. you can rent the NSMB game and run the update from disk (not the official update from nintendo server). that will take you to 4.1 and should install the ios files you need. otherwise you can read about softmodding in the guides section.

    You could even do the guide and it will guide you on how to update to 4.1. So is there a specific reason you are trying to update to 4.1 first?

    also 3.0 shouldn't use that guide. there is a list of games and the system menu version they update to in the guides section.

    looks like you need at least system menu 3.4 to play that game. so you may as well go to 4.1.
