    HI

    I bought my first Wii and its second hand. The serial start with LAH128xxxxx. Im from Australia, so the Wii is PAL.

    1. How can I check if my Wii had been softmod? because i plan to softmod it.
    2. With that serial, is it high risk to softmod compare to other Wii? because I cant seem to identify my model using various Wii serial checker.

    I bought it in second hand shop with 3 month warranty.
    I want to softmod it and play game on HDD, any recommendation?

    thank you.

    Its a second run unit in oz i think Bootmii boot2 can be installed run your HackMii Installer v0.6
    with bannerbomb install HBC and bootmii and make a nand backup as soon as you have installed them that way if you do make a mistake you have a safety net

    most likely is gen2.
    run the hackmii installer and see if bootmii will install as boot2.
    running trucha bug restorer also has a boot2 check.

    easiest way is to run HackMii installer (BEFORE doing anything else obviously) and check the log created on your SDCARD. If some IOS have the * mark, it means those are patched IOS and your Wii has been softmodded.

    Thanks all.

    I heard update to firmware 4.2 might brick my wii, should i update to 4.1? and how?
    Or should I softmodded first then update?
