    **** SORRY THIS POSTED TWICE ****

    Hi all,

    I'm wondering if you can help me. I've used the search function but can only find things from a year ago,
    so apologies if this has been posted before.

    I live in the UK, but I have a NTSC-U Wii bought in 2007. It has a D2CKey modchip, which has been great
    ever since and performed regular updates online (as recommended on this site). However, my last update about a year
    ago stopped my PAL backups working and kept it to only playing my NTSC ones.

    I am about to update to the latest update (4.3u) via the wii and want to know the following:

    (1) Advice before has been that it is perfectly safe to update online with a modchip (d2ckey) and not brick your wii -
    Does this still stand?

    (2) I am no longer able to play out of region back-ups, will the 4.3 stop me playing ANY backups now?

    (3) Will I be able to softmod my wii after the update has been applied (never softmodded before)

    I have no HBC channels installed, so not concerned about channels being removed.

    Thank in advance guys.

    Most chips have gone now, as softmodding has become the norm. If you softmod you can play out of region games again from a hard drive.

    Updating to 4.3 is not needed as it adds no features, just enhanced prevention of putting on the Homebrew channel.

    Get modmii, use google to find, run the wizard on your pc and it will download everything you need including a guide. You need a 1 or 2gb SD card for the files and follow the guide. Loading games can be either disc (neogamma) or from a hard drive.
