    My friend is currently in Japan and bringing me back a Black Wii. A couldn't find much about it with a google search, so I decided just to ask here.

    I figure it'll just be 4.0J or 4.1J, which can just be Bannerbomb'd, but will I be able to easily get everything else running (loading burnt backups, bootmii, etc)? Will I need to run the LU64 fix for it? I also heard a rumor it has a "special disc drive" which wont run burnt games. I'm assuming this in untrue, but correct me if I'm wrong.

    There's a thread with some information on this here:

    Basically, bannerbomb should work, but the rumor about the new DVD drive not reading burned games appears to be true. You should still be able to use the USB Loader though, so no worries there.

    Edit: And whatever you do, DO NOT INSTALL CIOSCORP on it. [​IMG]
