So where to start.. I recently got a Wii from a friend. The first thing I did was trying to softmod it.. Long story short: I bricked it.. But as I was so close to get it working I thought I would get it a second chance, so the day after I went and bought myself a new one. It came with firmware 4.3, but I knew you could use letterbomb to use HackMii installer. In the installer I noticed that I didn't get the choice to install DVDX which I knew I could do on my last Wii. I didn't think much of it cause I thought you could play all the games I wanted through USB or SD. I installed an USB Loader and tried playing a Wii game, which went just fine. I was really happy. Then I realized I also cracked the wii to be able to play Gamecube backups, which I at this point still though was as easy as to use an USB Loader. Ofcourse I understood how wrong I had been and started searching the net for ways to play the backups. I came over the Gamecube backup launcher which needed to load the games from burned discs, but soon understood I needed to install DVDX to be able to play burned DVDs at all. So I searched the net why I couldn't install it. If I have got this right it's because the newer Wiis is unable to play DVDs at all because of the disc drive being new or something, and that's why you couldn't install DVDX. BUT I also read somewhere that since 4.3 you can't install DVDX anyway.. so I'm quite confused there. But if it's that the disc drive is to new, I realized I have an old one in my friends bricked one (don't know if it matter but the bricked one had the 4.2 firmware). So I was thinking that maybe I could just change the two and then I would have the choice to then install DVDX. Would that do the trick? Or would I also have to downgrade to 4.2? Or is this a lost cause? I know about DML which is pretty awesome, but I noticed it was not yet perfected. I believe that is all.. Thankful for any help.
