    Ok so I got my Wii recently (been a week I guess), and the retailer installed uLoader and asked me to insert backup dvds in the external dvd player that came with the Wii, the Liteon DVD Player.

    Everyday I thought of softmodding my Wii, but kept changing my mind because I have no idea whether something has already been altered in the Wii, since it has uLoader channel, and no it doesn't have Homebrew Channel installed and the firmware is 4.2U. So can I just proceed with softmodding without worrying about any casualties? I don't think its softmodded, he said "its not hacked but it can run your games through the external drive"

    If your wii came with uloader I think some sort of homebrew must be at work so I don't think adding basic applications like emulators and/or media players would any harm as long as you don't mess with ioses and other nand stuff.

    Of course. Remember your first step is adding hbc and basic applications. Then if for some reason you want to install ioses or cioses be warned that are dangerous is you do not take the proper precautions. There a lot of guides like this tj_cool's guide or Clipper's Guide that will help u a lot.

    why would a "Retailer" install uLoader and provide a external DVD drive to play pirated games, he would for one get his license revoked and fined for doing so if he was reported, dont you mean you sent it to a dodgy guy that mods wii's in a back ally lol

    For wiiware you can use triiforce or have your ios70 patched which is very dangerous if you don't have the proper brick protection. For backups you can either use uloader with an external dvd drive or external HDD. Read very well the guides so you can learn the basic and principles of homebrew.

    Your retailer obviously skipped installing the HBC, or he deleted it after he was done modding. Either way, go through with the guide.
