    Running 3.4e Softmodded early 2009

    Hello,

    I soft modded my wii last year with very little problems. I am struggling though to play some of the newer backup games and can't update the shopping channel to install BBC I-player.

    Would it be possible to start from where I am and use Doggeggs guide to get me up to date?

    Thanks in advance

    The Simplistic Mod works for all Wiis and can help you get up-to-date on anything. Try that first.

    Thanks Szalkow,

    Am I able to start from scratch though with this mod? i.e will it overwrite the Twilight Hack I have at the moment without causing any bricks/problems?

    The guide should overwrite without problems. You don't need the Twilight Hack anyway

    Thanks

    I was concerned because I read this below:

    Apparently Waninkoko's 4.0 updater now grabs the latest IOS60 automatically which is a stub so if you don't have an IOS60 previously installed and you use Waninkoko's updater to update, it will brick you. So avoid using that to update now.

    I wasn't sure whether it was better to go back to an unmodded state first.

    The guide doesn't use the Updater (it updates another way), so it's safe [​IMG]

    Just to let you all know. I got everything working last night thanks to you guys. Had a little trouble with the shop channel but discovered through forum members that I was missing IOS61.

    Thanks again!!!!
