    Hi Guys 'n' Gals

    I just joined today. Your forum looks excellent.

    My kids Wii was softmodded using the method here:-

    http://www.wiihacks....od-any-wii.html

    I notice that this mod is now obsolete, and have been alerted to your excellent ModMii for Windows Mod.

    My question is this - if I run your ModMii mod, will it be OK to run it on top of the Wiihacks "Soft mod any Wii" that was used in the above link?

    My eldest says that your ModMii is much better than what we are using now!

    He wants to be able to load games from a portable USB hard drive / stick which he says is easier to do with your ModMii mod!

    If you someone could offer some help / advice I'd be very grateful, as I dont want to brick the Wii. My Xmas wouldn't be worth living! :)

    Thanks in advance

    Basically, remodding with modmii and answering every question as if the wii was never modded before should do the job.
    Always make sure you have a bootmii nand backup of your wii.
    If you follow the guide to the letter, the only thing that can cause a brick is a power failure during the softmod process, leaving the wii nand contents in a corrupted state.
    It's extremely unlikely, but can never be avoided 100,00%

    Actually youre wrong there. It reduces the chance even further, but an UPS can fail/break too, so its still not 100% guarantee :P 99.9% maybe, but not 100!

    Yeah, I can vouch for ModMii, have used it since xflak came out with it,
    is probably THE easiest and noob-friendly PC app to mod a Wii ever,
    and still use to this day for all updating of my own Wii.

    Cheers everyone - all went smoothly; and the Wii is working fine.

    Not got as far as the USB configuration, but hopefully that'll be just as easy to do!

    Merry Xmas
