A friend of mine has a mod chipped Wii, and accidentally updated it with what he thought was an NTSC game. His Wii Settings option is now bricked, and he doesn't know what firmware version he has. I want to use a game disc to update the Wii, but I know that if the update is below the Wii's firmware version, it'll screw it up further. Is there any way to check the Wii's version, without going to the Wii Settings? Will the Game disc not ask for an update if the Wii has a higher firmware version? Do mod chipped consoles skip update checks by default, and if so, how do I work around that? The homebrew channel is not installed.
