    Updating firmware of softmod Wii for a legit gamedisc.

    Hey everybody, here is my problem.

    I have a softmod Wii. I really want to play Worms Battle Islands. I know there are a lot of guides to get a downloaded version to run on your Wii. I have tried a lot of them but they didn't work. I am not looking for a guide to do this anymore.

    I decided I really want to play the game and I want to support Team 17, so I bought the game. I cannot play it however since I would have to update my Wii firmware first (it says so on the Wii menu when I put in the disc).

    Is there a way to update this firmware so I can play this game, without losing my softmod? I know there is a guide to update your shopping channel without losing your softmod, but I am not interested in that.

    Thanks in advance!

    What version of System Menu do your Wii have? 3.2?, 4.1?, 4.3? or ??
    Install PriiLoader and block Disc and Online updates.

    The game will use IOS56-64-v5661, if your Wii don't have this, you will install it manually

    I am not sure, because I'm not at home now (where my Wii is). Is this important? I just need to know if it's possible (and complicated, since I am a noob) because I have only this afternoon to return the game to the store.
    The guide you are linking to has multiple options. I don't really know what to do with it. Please note that I haven't softmodded my own Wii. I tried it but failed horribly, so I paid a guy to do it for me.

    This IOS56-64-v5661 was delivered with 4.3, so if you have 4.3 you don't need to install it.

    So you paid a guy that didn't do the job properly? Go back to him and he will install PriiLoader for free or if not just "kill" him

    You may run GeckoOS from HBC and run the game from it.

    Sorry, I didn't see your post before I replied again. Well, the guy is on vacation and won't be back for a couple of weeks.. I don't really know wat GeckoOS is or HBC. Could you explain in a noobfriendly way?
    Do I have to install this Priiloader and it will work? Unless I have an old system menu and I have to do something else as well?

    Edit: Homebrew Channel. Duh. Sorry.

    Yes, HBC is Homebrew Channel
    GeckoOS can you download from wiibrew.org, put it on a SD Card (sd:\apps\gechoos)
    Yes, you should install priiloader, it is a very good protection.

    I thought you said you bought the game? Priiloader will block the game from asking for the update.
