    If it has System Menu 3.3 (it probably does; my LU588 came with that), you can softmod it like normal.

    Yea just treat it like an LU64 regardless. The most recent method of softmodding works on any wii and is easier than most any other method used.

    Update to most recent FW
    Bannerbomb
    HBC/bootmii
    TBR downgrade IOS15, use IOS15 to install trucha bug/ES_identify in IOS36, restore IOS15
    cIOS rev14 using IOS36
    dop-IOS to most recent IOS60 with sig hash check
    preloader (if you want)
    whatever backup loader you want
    wad manager 1.4 using IOS249 to install any wad's you want.
