    Hello!

    I have a chip in my Wii (I think its a WiiKey), old games works but the newer dosent, and I cant update the chip.
    So I wonder if its possible to Softmod a Wii that already have a chip in it?

    That's no problem. You can also use USB Loaders if you have a chip. Simply use ModMii.

    Yes we are all sure. Chips only affect disc loading. I have a chipped wii thats been softmoded and a non chipped wii thats also softmoded. In short yes go for it. a Softmod will never cause a problem for chip users.

    Why are you asking for help, were given the answer, and still question us again?

    softmods generally install a cMIOS and a patched system menu IOS (among other things). These two things have been known to prevent some modchips from being able to load games from the disc channel. If you find yourself in this situation after softmodding your chipped Wii, install MIOSv10 and a non-patched system menu IOS (ie. IOS60 on 4.1 Wii's). But do NOT uninstall your system menu IOS.

    That's true, but it has nothing to do with softmodding a wii [​IMG]
