    Original Japanese Wii updating

    Hello everyone,

    I've been reading tutorials and going through everything pretty extensively and I've learned a lot. Though there are still a couple questions I'd like to ask. I have a first generation Japanese wii (I think it's 1st gen since the version doesn't show up at the top right of the screen in the settings menu). I would really like to softmod the wii so i can make it NTSC. Now, since I don't have Twilight Princess, I would like to update the system to use another method. My question is: Will any NTSC games be able to update the wii? I don't want to be able to play it just yet, just use it to update.

    Please and thank you for the help


    P.S. Am i right in assuming I have a very old wii if the version isn't at the top right?

    Oh snap, that was completely my mistake then. So to follow up, what if I said an English game, instead of NTSC. Thanks for the input Brian. After all that research I overlooked something so dumb.

    SO it turns out NA games do not work on J games even for updating. So, I'm stuck unless I get a Japanese game that can update I think. Does that seem about right to all of you?

    What course of action can I take? Am I right in assuming my version is too old to not need a game of a sort (be it Twilight hack or something)? Again, I assume that because there is no version at the top right.


    PS Sorry for double post

    EDIT: If I need to get a Japanese game, is there a list of Japenese games that will update my wii?
