Hi there guys! It's a pleasure to be posting here, and am thankful that there are so many smart users that provide excellent advise. Here is the issue: I have a previously softmodded wii (not sure on the version) - but I never did ANY Wii system updates. I have read that the latest 4.3 version can be modded no issue, but I have also heard that if I update my Wii through the Wii settings menu, that it may screw up the softmod. Is that even a problem, seeing as I should be able to softmod it again, no problem? Orrr am I incorrect with this assumption? I really want to have the Wii on the latest firmware, unless there is some kind of limitations with the newer firmware?? My thought process is that I need to update the wii from the system menu, then reapply the softmod. I have also heard that you can update with "Modmii" but still not sure if that's a better method than simply doing the official wii update, and reapplying the softmod. This would allow me to update to the latest softmod too (with minimal chance of corruption/issues due to manual system update patching through Modmii). What do you guys recommend?? Thanks ahead of time for any advise or tips. Link's to tutorials (up to date) would be appreciated.
