Hi people, I could not find an answer to my specific configuration, so I hope you can help me with this: I have a PAL wii with Wiikey (original version) that I updated to the latest wiikey fw (1.9s), I also installed Homebrew channel. Since I also use games that were scrubbed, I realized that updating to the official 4.0E firmware will block those games from running (BTW - am I wrong here?), so I upgraded the wii to 4.0E hacked firmware by wanikoko. Lately, with more recent games, I encountered titles that still wanna update the system (e.g Pikmin, Punch Out). 1. Is it safe to run these updates? 2. If not, is there a way to update the current firmware with missing components so these games can run? BTW I managed to install gamma backup loader and run Punch Out, but since the main users of the console are my kids, I would like to find a solution that will run the games simply by inserting the DVD, like they are used to do on all other games. Thanks * oops, sorry. I meant to post it in the noob questions thread.
