It is necessary

  • - Wii controller;
  • - Wii game console;
  • - television.


Step 1

Firmware in the case of the Wii is an image of a permanent storage device intended for recording into the memory of a game console in order to update its firmware, as well as the actual process of recording this image into the non-volatile memory of the device. To find out the firmware version of your set-top box, you first need to connect it to your TV and run it.

Step 2

A distinctive feature of the Nintendo Wii game console is the unique Wii Remote and Wii MotionPlus wireless controllers that respond to player movements. With the help of one of these controllers, you need to go to the set-top box menu, and then - its settings.

Step 3

In the settings of the set-top box, you do not need to click on any menu buttons, since the firmware version is indicated by a background label in the upper right corner of the screen.

Step 4

Often, no numbers or symbols are displayed on the setup menu screen. This means that the set-top box has not yet been flashed, that is, its firmware version is zero.

Step 5

If you intend to flash your game console, make sure that the discs you have will work correctly with the new firmware version. The fact is that the existing versions of the firmware were created for specific purposes and in some cases can cause non-fundamental failures of the console at certain points in time and with certain games.
