**** 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.
