    Hi,
    I want to upgrade my wii. It is NTSC V 3.2U with Twilight Hack and Homebrew Channel.
    Ive searched through forums and I always get mixed answers, trying to get a straightforward
    explanation on how to do this. I would just try but I also keep reading everywhere about the possibility
    of my Wii getting bricked for life and I'll do anything to avoid that.

    I don't know what version I even need, I just want to be able to use large memory cards and to be able
    to play guitar hero 6 on it. I think I also need to switch ISOs or something. I'm trying to run
    the game from either back up or original DVD.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Run ModMii and do a full softmod. It will give you everything you need. Link in my sig.

    Easiest way to update is ensure you have the latest version of HBC (v1.0.8) [press Home button in HBC to display version in upper right corner of screen], then go into the Wii Settings and do a System Update. This way you get the full 4.3 update, with all the updated IOS and you keep HBC as well. Then all original games will work without any problems. If you don't have the latest HBC, you need to update it first by running the HackMii Installer from http://bootmii.org/download and choosing to update HBC.

    That's also risking a brick.

    No it isn't. I know of no way to brick doing what I described.

    This will NOT get you softmod up to date.
    It will only update official Ninty stuff and, in your case, will stub your cIOS.

    Do as Joostinonline said, use Modmii if you have a PC. Be safe and update both with Modmii in ONE go.

    And just some info: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Brick

    I have HBC 1.0.1 IOS36 V4.18

    I can't imaging it's as easy as updating my wii thru nintendo? Ive had many people
    telling me not to do this. I want to be able to continue playing back up DVD's

    Now Modmii, just run that regular and everything should work without risk?


    Thanks!

    If that happens to be a region changed Korean Wii (it's pretty rare for someone to actually realize they have a Korean Wii), there is 100% chance of brick. If it isn't, there is still a chance of bricking in the event of any sort of power failure, or just at random. Where you not around when 4.2 and 4.3 were released?

    Yes run it on your PC.
    Just say you want to rehack your Wii.
    Follow the oncreen instructions, and use the generated guide!
    let us know how it went!

    You can try that one, but if it doesn't work I strongly recommend a 2GB Nintendo one.

    The easiest way is to use modmii as the above guys told you.

    Off-topic I don't understand why Sifjar refuses to recommend Modmii. Been noticing this for a while.

    OK, first i want to say WOW. This is so easy and brainless, Modmii must be pretty new, it took
    me forever to do the TwilightHack, probably 6 months after the will was released.

    So Modmii is downloading the files and I just skimmed through the guide. Should I follow the
    guide 100% through?
    ie- the first step is installing HBC which I already have so do I skip it or go through everything?

    Thanks!

    I refuse to recommend something that is not necessary. It is easier to just let HBC auto update and then do an official update. He made no mention of wanting a "softmodded" Wii, he explicitly said he was happy to play the game from an original disc. What I suggested allows that.

    Follow Modmii instructions. It will guide exactly the way you want your wii to be re-hacked.

    @SifJar
    If his wii is already softmodded it's common sense he meant to update his wii + maintain his backup loading capabilities unless he says otherwise like "I want to re-virginize" or "get rid my homebrew and stuff".
    His last sentence clearly says it indirectly:
    "I think I also need to switch ISOs or something. I'm trying to run
    the game from either back up or original DVD."

    OK somehow im already stuck, it seems it's failing to download most of the
    files and it keeps getting "stuck" at the same place.
    Modmii isnt freezing or crashing it just doesnt do anything, i waited a while.
    Unfreezemii doesnt help.
    Firewall is disabled, i tried running it a few times, im out of ideas.

    Antivirus is probably blocking it. Most AV programs have been reporting ModMii as a false positive for the past couple months or so. Try temporarily disabling your AV program.

    You haven't paid much attention to system updates the past few years, have you? Sometimes the updates just fail and cause full bricks, especially 4.2+ because of boot2. Check out hackmii or do a google search.

    Btw, it's not just "dodgy second hand sellers" that sell region changed Korean Wii's. A lot of shops in Asia do that. They swap out the cases with ones from other Wii's so the serial number doesn't show it being Korean.

    The point is, there was no reason to do a system update when it is much safer to use ModMii, and re-hacking would be necessary in the end anyway. The HBC isn't the only piece of homebrew, you know.
