    I want to install cioscorp on a wii, but i don't know if it is a new lu64 wii or older(or newer in that case), isn't there a way to detemine if it is a wii that's a (formally unsoftmoddable lu64 wii) or an older one? or am i to assume that we can only check that from the serial of the wii?

    The serial is currently the only way.

    Just look at number at the bottom of the wii. if it starts LU64, LU65 etc, its one of the newer ones.

    Serial is not really the way. I've seen some different serials which have boot2v4 installed. You can use Trucha Bug Restorer to tell you which Boot2 version you have. If it tells you that you have Boot2v4 then better assume it is (these so called LU64 wii's have Boot2v4).

    Yeah TBR will let you know if it is LU64+ or not by the version of Boot2. Boot2v4 is LU64+ Wii's.

    On a side note it really does not matter what you own. A Launch Wii that has never been softmoded can be hacked with the same method as LU64+ Wii's. So as long as your useing an LU64+ Wii guide you will be safe no matter what Wii you own.

    Actually the're not only LEF121 Wii's (and yes I'm very sure about that), since I had one a couple of weeks back that had Boot2v4 and started with LEH [​IMG] .

    1. Install IOS35v1040, if all your channels stop working and WAD Manager crashes when you select IOS35, you have one of the "unsoftmoddable" Wiis.
    2. Check your boot2 version with TBR, if it says, it is 4, the chance is high, your Wii is one of these Wiis. Boot2 needed an update to work properly with the changed hardware on the new Wiis and was introduced shortly before the new hardware revision.
    3. Just stop using any crap that does not work on the new Wiis! There's absolutely no need to use ANYTHING that does not work on new Wiis. There are even cioscrap versions that work on these Wiis. (Ok, i'm not sure about Hermes' IOS222, but i think with rev4 it's finally compatible with new Wiis)
