Hello, I have not updated anything on my softmodded wii for a while and I am really behind on what I need to do. I have system menu 3.4 and use USB Loader GX with cIOS r17. I want the latest and greatest set-up in order to backup and play some of the newer games that are out (can't play Metroid: Other M as well as a few others from my HD). Some sites I have visited say to download the official nintendo update first and then softmod everything again (this scares me). Other sites say to never update your wii if it is softmodded. What advice do you have for me? Thank you!
