    Semi Noob here

    A friend of mine used the Softmii packed he says back in November 2008. I'm not sure what was contained in the package but he wants me to update it to the latest version. Since I'm not familiar with what was in the package I was thinking of just making the wii a virgin and just going from there. But I hear the latest wii update sucks ass. So I don't really know what to do right now.

    Sorry I should have clarified, I'm a little afraid of reverting my Wii to virgin because I don't know the contents of the package. Was wondering if there was a way to update it with all the shit thats on it, or an easy safe way to revert the wii back to virgin I guess since it seems to be safe to do so.

    Been up all fucking night had to bail friend out of jail ~_~

    What about cIOSCORPS ? If he has softmii could he poss not end up with a brick? Should he run Da Letter A's uninstaller first?

    Wow...softmodding a wii sure is illegal! [​IMG]


    As for your clarification: indeed. No need to uninstall anything. At worst, you'll overwrite what you already have. [​IMG]

    But can't you encounter probs due to the max'd out version numbers on cIOSCORPS cIOS'S? Not had much experience with it, going of what I've read in other forums. I think you do have to upgrade to 3.6 first, run the uninstaller and then update to 4.2 so you can follow Xzxero's guide

    No. Overwriting his IOS offline will just remove dip patched IOS's. Iv done this countless times. Aslong as he/she/it follows the guide (ie: install ios70 and sysmenu first) he/she/it will be more than fine.

    FYI: maxxed out version numbers only applies to updating officially, hence why i said do it offline via the guide.

    Usual rules apply when updating/softmodding, read and double read before attempting anything and if you're not clear, ASK!!!
