    What are the odds if I buy a used Wii and it'll be 4.2 or earlier?

    pretty good i imagine, depending on when the wii was sold to the store you got it from. if they sold it sometime within the last few months it could have 4.3 on it.

    I got mine used and it had never been updated.

    Given the typical Wii user, I'd say the chances aren't too high, definitely there, but not like 90%. Most don't care about updates or new games (wii sports ftw?), and then there are the people who don't have wifi.

    Well regardless it doesn't matter since 4.3 is hackable now with HackMii Installer v0.8! lol

    @OP, chances are good it's pre 4.3, but if its actually 4.3, just get a copy of super smash bros or lego indiana jones and u can softmod without any issues

    Very high. Working in a games store myself, I see a lot of Wii's traded in. Whenever I test them, they're almost always on 4.1 - A lot even being on 3.2 or .4

    I've yet to see one that's 4.3, as there's simply no reason to.

    a little bit of column a, and a little bit of column b...

    i took tueidj's avatar and added a pirate hat. im sick of him telling everyone hes not a pirate. when the fact surely is that if i opened his computer or looked at his wii there would be NO WAY IN HELL i wouldnt find any pirated music, programs, games etc.


    so its a joke yes, but its also a little stab at him. i dont like him at all.


    oh yes 1 more thing, this has nothing to do with you xflak or your friend deadlyfoes. i like you both... [​IMG]

    50/50 chance. It either comes with 4.3 or it doesn't. [​IMG]

    lmfao! It's ironic how tueidji's avatar is a combination of my avatar and deadlyfoez's in an attempt to mock us (I think, but it all could be in good fun), and your's is a mod of tueidji's avatar in an attempt to mock him but NOT Foez and I... lol, sooo confusing... this whole time I thought u were trying to call Foez and I pirates! But now that I know who u are really calling a pirate... well, I'll let him defend himself [​IMG] lol

    I apologize for going off topic, but there is NO WAY you can make that claim. How on earth would you be able to make that outrageous claim? Just because YOU have some pirated music/programs/games, doesn't mean other people do too.

    Again, sorry for going off topic, it just always annoys me when pirates try to make themselves feel better by claiming everyone has warez on their wii/computer/whatever.

    put it this way, ive never met someone who knows how to use a computer well, thats has absoloutly NO pirated material...

    theres just no way he pays for EVERYTHING... nobody buys music thats for sure... i dont know 1 single person that pays for and downloads music from itunes. and NEVER from anywhere else.

    i just dont like the way he puts himself up on a pedestal like hes soo much better than the rest of us filthy pirates.

    atleast i can admit it. who else is a pirate?

    i bought so many differnt wii's it's not even funny and your chances are slim of getting a 4.3 so keep that in mind.

    all of your circumstantial evidence is based purely on people you know - what on earth kinda limited case study is that to draw your massive conclusions from?

    Your right. Although I did not say anything about molestation, I should not have said that at all. I was just trying to continue a joke. (I'm usually never off topic anyways)

    @OP, If you buy a used wii from a game shop then it will most likely have 4.3 on it. If you buy it from someone, like off of craigslist or from some other individual, I would assume the chances are low.

    BUT... Go to a gameshop instead. Take a look at this thread and ask to view a few wii's (they can't refuse that unless they dont want your money), and compare the serial number to the ones listed in the thread that I linked to and try to find one with a vulnerable boot1 so bootmii can be installed to boot2.

    that is a very big understatement. piracy and music buying CAN get along, just because some people dont buy any music whatsoever does not mean that people in general do not

    i actually do buy music but i dont deny i dont pirate any either ;p


    anyways, this is very off topic [​IMG]
