    Hello everyone, I'm very new to this, I have just received as a Wii from a friend as a very strange gift. He was half way through soft modding it. So it's at version 3.4u. but I think 4.2 is where I want to be to be able to run back ups off the newest NeoGamma.

    So I tried to run a back up, but to no avail, my version of NeoGamma was only 0.3 and I got a green screen. So I assumed updating to this newest system Menu and IOS and then the newest NeoGamma will help me out.

    So when I came this far, I assumed "Revirginizing" and going from there would be the best way to go, but then when I was reading this guide. I saw that if I was just going to re-hack it, then I should just update it from there. I was just worried that whatever IOS's on the Wii right now would brick it during the update. Should I be worried?

    I'm following the simple update guide: So I put DOP-Mii on there and the 4.2 System Menu and the IOS70 with it. But when trying to run DOP-Mii, I couldn't select IOS36 and I got an error, telling me to pick an IOS that I could actually use.

    SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO... how am I doing? Could someone tell me what to do next, OR, should I do something completely different.

    Thanks for the help guys.

    you shouldnt revirginize your wii.

    just update via nintendo or my guide, then proceed to actually modify it [trucha bug, cIOS, etc.]

    anything done before will be overwritten.
