    NSMB and system update.

    I got New Super Mario Bros for xmas. I had followed the Yafaze softmod process. The site is now down, or I would post the exact tutorial I used. I have 4.1u and HBC shows 1.0.6 IOS61 v19.26. I have read up on the fixes to make NSMB work and decided that rather than continuously updating my IOS every time I get a new game I just want to go back to normal.

    What will happen if I click the software update that comes with NSMB? Will I brick my Wii or will I get a "factory reset"? Do I need to do more? I just am tired of looking up new solutions and seeing a thousand different answers for every new game I get. Thanks in advance.

    you dont really have to update ios files very often and when there is a major issue with something like that, there is usually a guide or something for it here. That game has the 4.1 update. I just did 5 wiis using the softmod guides here, installed the hermes cios, and a couple other tweaks. everything i have treid works straight away. My wii was originally modded using the yafaze 4.0 ubermod and all i had to do was update my cios and install the ios files from the softmod pack for the guide here and i was good to go.

    Thanks for the quick response, I appreciate it for sure, but can you tell me what would happen if I ran the update? Would it remove all my mods? Once I read up on the processes things are pretty simple, but it happens too frequently that there is even a Wii game that I need to fix things for, and by then I have forgotten what I had done in the previously action, etc. I just kind of want out. I was a casual modder at best. I barely even got much use out of soft-modding with certain ISOs requiring different types of modding etc. If anyone could help out with that I'd really appreciate it.

    i hear you!! i read up on patches, iso, & updates for NSMB a few weeks ago. Not having the game back then, I decided to not worry about it. Got the game for Xmas and now I forget if I need to get some ISO or something to run the damn game. Searching the forums and that'll probably take all night now.

    wii 4.1u
    hbc=1.0.5 ios35 v12.16
    priiloader v .01
    ios v60 sysmmenu v449

    it required an update to use it through the main channel, though it worked via the backup launcher.

    This is the main thing about being a hacker, taking risks. Yes you gotta try to prepare for the worst, but i know everytime i try and hack something that it may not work or i might even break it. You guys got a good thing going on, not only can you play all these new games but thousands of games from when you were growing up or still very young.

    Yeah but that's also the thing for me. I don't really use the Wii except when I get a new game, and don't want to have to re-learn things each time. I would rather just go back to normal, but have not been able to find a straightforward answer detailing THAT process.

    Here is all the info i have for this. Also if bootmi was installed as boot2 and you used it before adding a cios as most guides recommend, you could restore your nand to when you had homebrew channel only.
