    System menu version doesn't matter, you can softmod all Wiis with almost the same method.

    4.2 or below: use bannerbomb
    4.3 (latest as of now): use letterbomb.

    Also: don't take it the wrong way, but I wouldn't trust a new wii in the hands of someone who cannot find out what the latest firmware is. Or cannot even write "modded" properly. Please do your homework before doing something, will you? It ain't that hard. And though there are some updates (modmii has become the swiss army knife of wii hacking: it does everything you want it to...and order pizza).

    tj_cool thanks you very much for you help :D

    Don't take this the wrong way but please don't assume something that you know nothing about. If you read my original post I did mod WIi's many moons ago and I have recently updated them with using the guides on this forum (using ModMii). So I would thank you to keep you views of what I can and can't do to yourself. As for spelling mistakes sorry Mr. perfect I assume you never spell anything wrong.

    It should have 4.3 on it.
    I just softmodded my neighbours new wii a few days ago, it was great but he wanted to run backups (He has a 600gb Hard Drive) so it was tough installing a cIOS, i eventually figured out that I need to use Simple Patch Installer on it to install a homebrew friendly version of IOS 36 in slot 236.
    I didn't need to teach him anything as he only wants to play backups, possibly watch movies on his Hard Drive aswell...
    But I suggest you tell your friend everything you're doing, that way he will be more smart with what he's doing, my friend taught me about wii hacking back at like fw 3.6 or something and it was easy, but I had no idea what I was doing and why some things weren't working.
