    Hi. Just picked up a pre owned Wii today. The thing looks like it has never been out the box. On setting it up it its a version 3.3E.

    What should be my next move when it comes to setting it up to use the homebrew channel etc. Should I go with the sticky at the top of the page. (The one that updates you to 4.2 first then hacks the Wii) or is there a better way to go.

    Last Wii I own about two years ago I got a chip fitted. I love the idea of running games of a hard drive.

    Ay help would be amazing.

    Thanks

    G

    I had (well, have) a WiiKey 1.9s fitted to mine, but my DVD drive went from messing up a little, to messing up alot (and making noises), to straight up dying. I stayed on 3.2U just in case I ever wanted to softmod or do anything else, but in the end that wasn't necessary (because of current tools, bannerbomb for example).

    All I did was...
    - Upgrade to 4.2U via Nintendo Updater
    - Bannerbomb / Install HackMii (BootMii as Boot2 and IOS, Homebrew Channel, and DVDX)
    - Made a NAND backup (just in case!)
    - Trucha Bug Restorer Mod (Now people generally use Dop-IOS v11 though, I believe)
    - Install Waninkoko IOS (249/250)
    - Install Hermes IOS (222/223/202)
    - Installed Forwarder Channel for WiiFlow
    - Copied WiiFlow 1.1 r25 to my SD card

    That was basically it. I don't think there was anything else.

    ...

    I like this guide, by the way:

    Thanks mate. Had a look at that link you sent me. Funny how they kind of tell you the same thing as the sticky guide but in a different order. Updating to 4.1 is about the last thing they tell you to do.

    So you think I should just let my wii auto update from its own menu ? When I first setup my wifi it said there was update but I said no to it.

    I would do the update from the sticky guide, and not update thru ninty.
