So I'm trying to softmod my Wii, and I really don't want to brick it, so before I go any further, can you guys share tips with me on not bricking my Wii? Also, with the 3DS and flashcarts for example, you want to update your flashcart before updating your 3DS. Is there anything like that with the Wii? For example, if a new version of the Wii comes out, is there any order that you should follow in order to update your Wii (for example, changing some soft mod settings/updating your softmod before updating your Wii)? Thanks Edit, also, when was the Wii first hacked to allow great compatibility with backups (say 90%+ compatibility with Wii titles)?
