    Hey, I just bought a Wii last month and recently found out about hacking it. I was reading through topics and have read that my Wii may not be able to do things other Wiis can, though I don't know know what specifically. Can someone inform me on what is possible to do on my Wii and what isn't?

    It's 4.2U. And after checking the serial number, I believe it works out to be 75% chance of having a D3-2 drive.

    But you can still use USB loaders or USB-DVD drives

    I plan to use USB Loaders.

    I guess the only downside is not running burnt GameCube games and not having bootmii as boot2?

    yes but not having bootmii as boot2 is kind of a big deal.

    without it, you wii is always open to bricks.

    but those dont happen unless you fail [​IMG]

    Okay. I'm on 4.2 (pure, clean 4.2) and just finished installing the HBC (bannerbomb hack). Am I right in saying that I should delete the stubs for 249 and 250 (with DOP-Mii), and then use Wani's cIOS installer and use the default as a base?

    Goal: To run a USB loader.

    Normally IOS36 is the very First IOS you Trucha Patch.

    Before you even install Custom IOS's, like 222/3 or 249/250.

    But the USB loaders use the Custom IOS's above.

    We also seem to patch IOS70 (for Sys 4.2), dont know why though... when we already have IOS36 patched.

    Not what I know off. Most likely not since cMIOS must be used.

    WODE will let you USB load Wii/GC games from USB and 100% compatibility. But at a price though.
