    can I install homebrew on version 3.1 that is having Wiikey modchip?

    Hi,

    I have an old Wii which runs firmware v3.1E.
    It has a WiiKey modchip installed - not sure which version, probabaly one of the first versions.
    Since it is soldered, I can't just unplug it.
    Will I be able to install homebrew on my Wii?
    Do I need to do any upgrade at all?

    Appreciate your educated response.

    Thank You!

    Thank you us3rname for this quick response!
    Being new to the homebrew scene - forgive me for my ignorance - I'm still missing something here with the process:
    Eventually will I end up with an upgraded firmware version? if yes, won't I have any collision issue with the old WiiKey Modchip?

    I think modchips work up through 4.2. The recommended version is 4.1
    I suggest you search around to see what you'll need to do to make yours work

    There is also this guide:
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html
    Seems a bit different then your guide and using different files.
    What are the differences then? will they bring me to the same result?
