    Hey,

    I know im not searching but cut me some slack, i dont wanna dig through loads of different topics with vague answers. Would i be able to go to the shop and pick up a wii and softmod it straight out the box?

    I havent had a wii in years, last time i had one it was modded with the cyclowiz chip so wondered how much times have changed

    Thanks

    FYI, Wiis in shops are unlikely to have 4.3 yet.

    To answer your question though, yes you can softmod it and either Lego Indiana Jones or Super Smash Bros Brawl is needed...

    Another thing, you don't need to downgrade, just softmod it and wait for TT to release HBC.. making the voyage brick proof...

    yes. super smash brothers brawl or lego indiana jones (original).
    there's a chance a new bought one will still have 4.2 on it, which wouldn't require these and be a lot easier. depends on how long it's been sitting in the shop.

    My cousin bought a new Wii and it had 4.2U so there is some hope left.

    Edit: He bought it on June 30 or July 3, mostly likely July 3.

    LOL yea. My friend is going to buy one soon for me to mod so I told him to get one fast before all the 4.2's are gone after I heard that my cousin got a 4.2 wii.

    unlikely. she probably updated. Casuals always update when they are asked to. And how is it false hope? It's not like we need hope, as 4.3 is modable without a problem.

    And why would you want a 4.2 Wii? The only advantage is that bannerbomb is slightly easier than indiana pwns or smash stack.
    But really you can just rent one of these two games...

    Just an extra note: the SSBB exploit only works with the NTSC version of the game. Considering the OP is from the UK (PAL region), it's probably best to just use Lego Indiana Jones.
