    It'll be 4.3, you will need one of three legit games to mod it, and it won't play burnt discs at all (you'll want to use a usb harddrive).

    the balance board will be fine yes you can softmod black wiis but will only be able to run games using a usb loader as far as firmware you will have to wait till you buy one as it will depend on the mfd any help just send me a private message

    Woudn't that be pirating........ [​IMG]

    Short answer, yes.

    Long answer, yes, and there are many ways to do this as well. Personally I find that dumping game discs using the Wii to be the easiest. You can use the USB Loader itself or a separate utility like CleanRip.

    The important thing is that you have some time before you get your Wii, and that time should be spent reading. Some excellent resources are: these forums and its search function, The Complete SoftMod Guide, WiiBrew and XFlax's ModMii.

    Welcome to the hobby.
