okay, so i bought a used wii. it is hacked. i dont know how to tell whats what with it and all i know about is that it has the homebrew channel. i would like to update it so that i can play a REAL copy of NSMB (new super mario brothers). I did my research and found a great guide on hacking a 4.1, however the NSMB patch puts me at 4.2. so i lose the option to update and do it all myself so that i know whats going on. as it is, when i turn on the wii it goes to some black screen with a bunch of options...idk whats going on. i have jailbroken my psp and itouch, but this thing is stumping me(more like scaring me...its half mine half my gfs, so if i brick it im kinda dead.) i read that gecko Os will let me play the game without updating. however my version of geckoOs that is on there does not work. HOw do i update Gecko, or preferably update my wii while retaining homebrew capabilities ( i did figure out emulators and would hate to lose my nes collection.) i know this is a noobish question. and i did do some site searching, but i need some one on one to figure out what the hell is going on with my wii. at the least i would be very appreciative of some links to solutions to my problem. i did read about http://wiibrew.org/wiki/GeckS it says this at the top: WiiBrew recommends that you run the latest version of the HackMii Installer and then optionally update your Wii to 4.3 using Nintendo's official updater how do i do that with the wii already hacked? summary; wii already homebrew channel enabled. want to update cant brick it need to play new games, cockblocked by wii updater. would like to play future backups off of harddrive (but ill do my own research for that after i get it updated) thanks!
