Hi. I got a Wii recently and after doing some research it turns out the console has a modchip but I don't know which one does it have. It's a white Wii model RVL-001 with System Menu 4.2U. All of my Gamecube and most of my Wii backups work except for New Super Mario Bros Wii. The game loads alright, but it shows a disc load error every 5 minutes. I've read that an update could solve the problem but since I don't know the modchip I can't do it. There is a problem with the shop channel because it demands a system update to 4.3 and I heard that if you update a modchip Wii the update will brick it. I don't know much about Wii hacking so I ask for your help to mod my console. In short my goals are: 1. Protect my Wii from bricking it. 2. Make it compatible with all game backups. 3. Update the system without causing issues. 4. Fix the problem with the shop channel and install the official Netflix and Youtube channels. A friend told me that Donkey Kong Country was removed from the shop, is there any other way to install it? 5. Install the best USB backup loader available, and several emulators complete with forwarders. 6. Accomplish all the above goals without bricking the console or losing the ability to load Gamecube backups. It would be great if i could find out which modchip I have and upgrade it safely if possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
