    Hello everyone,

    I've just spent two years abroad and wanted to play some backups of Wii games. Although I used to quite actively follow all developments regarding modchips and such, I've been 'out' for two years. A quick look on the GBATemp boards shows me that a lot has changed in these two years. I am now wondering: what should I do to get my old Wii up & running again, and also be able to play recent games (like Metroid Prime Trilogy and NSMB Wii).

    My current system:
    - An old PAL Wii (I was one of the first in Europe to buy one)
    - Wiikey 1 with update 1.9s (the one that made it possible to play Galaxy 1)
    - (Outdated? version of) Homebrew Channel already installed
    - One of the latest Wii updates installed (my brother used my Wii once a couple of months ago, to play an original copy of NSMB Wii and thus installed the update that came with that game)

    I haven't tried to play any of my old backups yet, because I fear this might do damage to my system (since I have no idea what this new update does).
    If anyone would be able to provide me with a short step-by-step-tutorial on how to proceed from here this would be greatly appreciated.

    With regards,
    AtlasXL

    Thanks. I had already read this thread, but I was under the impression that your tool was for softmodding a Wii. After taking a closer look, I now see this is not correct. I will use your thread to try and bring my Wii up-to-date, thank you very much.
