Hi I bought a chipped Wii for some time ago and after a wile I downgraded the wii to play newer games.

Now when I look it seems that everyone is using softmod, some games is even harder to get working with chip it seems.

1. Can I/should I go for softmodding and use USB Loading (which seems nice)?

2. If so can I use any of your easy guides on this site to upgrade or is it a specific one for my needs?

I have tried to find this info on the forum without success, sorry if double posting.

if u upgrade via Nintendo, its a pain in the ass to get things workin how you like again

if you update using homebrew i.e via WADS etc then its all good

and you can install BootMii as boot2 seeing how you have old consoles, this is basically 100% brick protection

you don't even say WHAT chip it is how are we supposed to know it's out of date! and anyway sometimes it's better to use the chip to play some games like MPT for instance.

chips wont help you with usb loading, so it's really irrelevant.

usb loading is so nice. no more scratched discs needing reburning. no more hunting for games and changing discs.

    Eventhough the New 3DS XL is more powerful, I still feel like the DS Lite was a more polished system. It's a real shame that it never got an XL variant keeping the GBA slot. You'd have to go on AliExpress and buy an ML shell to give a DS phat the unofficial "DS Lite" treatment, and that's the best we'll ever get I'm afraid.

    The phat model had amazingly loud speakers tho.

    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".

    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    Nothing special about it other than it's more comfortable than the Lite
