    I can't play wiiware games on my wii. It's version 3.2u and I think you need to update the system to 4.x to be able to play them. I can't find anything related to my question on the internet so I went here to find answers. I don't want to brick my wii, cause it's the source of fun for me this summer vacation. Does anyone know a step by step guide, a video, a link or anything that could help me update my hacked wii to ver. 4.x, that would be greatly appreciated.

    If you wish to stay on 3.2, just only update your IOSes.
    If you wish to use the functionality of the SD Card menu as well, you'll have to upgrade to any version above 4.x

    In case you make a mistake whilst doing either of these, I'd suggest doing a nand backup via BootMii first.

    is it just the outside button broke? to were you see the black dot? use a pen. or a small screwdriver. but don't push to hard otr you'll def brake it., that is if the outer button is not on the wii. if so be very carefull an pull it out.( mine doesn't have the outer button. so i do what i'm telling you to do..( my kids are rough on shit.).
    or flip the wii over an take the two small screws that hold the face plate on out an un snap the face plate an do the same thing as above.( i used a small steak knife to take those screws out, before i got my tri wing.)

    Do you have any friends that might loan a GC controller to you?
    If not, you can buy one on eBay for less than $5.00!

    :D

    He sent me a PM and I gave him xyzzy for the keys, although getting a nand backup with a gc controller will still be better.
