    Help bringing my Wii back to life!

    Hello! I'm trying to get my hacked Wii back into shape for my son, but I've been out of the scene for a long time. I have the wiikey v1 (just updated to 1.9s) and I'm on 4.1u. The current questions I have are:

    1. I've read that 1.99b is the latest wiikey firmware, but I cannot find it anywhere. Should I even update? If so, can somebody post a link for me to download it from?

    2. Should I stay on 4.1u or update to 4.2 or 4.3?

    3. Is wiikey still good or do I try soft modding? If the latter, can somebody recommend what the latest and greatest?

    4. I cannot play PAL games, how do I go about making my Wii region free?

    5. I've tried playing a NTSC version of Star Wars Clone Wars and it gets to the start menu. But when I try to play it I get error 02. Any ideas?

    Sorry for all of the questions, but I've spent hours trying to find this information myself and could not. Any help is GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!

    You probably want to soft mod the system to make sure you have everything current.

    Stay at menu level 4.1, but the 58 and 61 in Chapter 1 and the IOS Update bundle in Chapter 2 should be installed since the system has never been 4.3.

    A link to the guide is in my signature.

    Thanks, llaffer! I've went through that guide, but didn't know which sections I needed to follow. Thanks for the tips!

    If anybody else has recommendations, please let me know. TIA!

    Then do the entire guide if my previous statement was confusing.

    No, no, no. I did not mean anything negative in my last reply. I meant that I was lost b/c of the number of sections in that guide. I was very grateful by you pointing me to the sections I need.

    Btw, I'm up and running now! I was amazed how easy/fast it was to install the softmod. Truly appreciate your help. Thanks!
