OK, I moved across the country in 2008 and left both of my Wii consoles with my twin brother, who took almost a year to send me one. I pretty much haven't used it in another 6 months due to having so much other stuff to catch up on. The one he sent me was the one we primarily left at work for other people to use so, AFAIK, it hadn't been touched as far as updates and softmods. Softmods were only just getting big and I had either a home-made YAOSM or WiiKey clone in it (I can't recall because made both and installed them frequently), so I guess no one bothered. That said, my brother said that he thinks he installed a cIOS for some reason or another, though there is no softmod. It DOES still have "the homebrew channel." It may have BootMii installed (how do I know?). Anyway, I just bought NSMB Wii with the black remote + Motion Plus bundle at Wal-Mart.com and I'd like to play it. Of course, the Wii needs an update. Before I do anything, I need to know what has been done and how to update while preserving it. Is there anything that can check and list the software modifications and such along with their versions (in case anything is out-dated)? Also, is there any readon to softmod a hard-modded Wii these days? If so, I'd like to get it fully updated with the latest softmods (haven't read up on these... they only started getting big after I left my Wii behind). Oh, and will softmods solve the problem with GH World Tour being screwy off a DVD-R (works fine off the original)? "Screwy" as in the notes are hard to hit because the timing is somehow off (NOT latency; I get 0ms when I test it). Probably because it's a WiiKey and it's streaming off the disc at 3x. Was that 3x WiiKey glitch ever fixed without downgrading? A little help? Thanks!
