So I was wondering what firmware the wii's currently shipping, selling in stores have on them? are they 4.2 out there? or 4.1

Also are these models the ones that can not read dvd's? Or is that still only the models in japan.

Thanks

i doubt they will have 4.2 firmware at this point, I got one 3 weeks ago and it was still on 4.0 firmware. They will probably sell off all the older firmwares by christmas... so i suspect after xmas, all or most wii's in stores will be 4.2, but until then you may find older firmwares in stores... but there's only one way to tell... go shopping, lol!

wait is this true ? damn, so they black pal wii cant read burned dvds ?
or change the dvd from an older wii. but who needs disc channel loading anyway when you can do usb loading which is more faster.


so easy to do, and they arent exactly in short supply with the amount of people who have bricked there wii's LOL

Friend Just got one from Gamestop SN#LU3947 Had Firmware 4.0 and the new Boot2V4. Using Bannerbomb and Ios 15 to install Cios38V14 and then upgraded to 4.2. Everything running perfect.

They should have 4.2. You would be very lucky if they had 4.1.

so if i buy drivekey and install it on 4.2 it won't read burned dvd still?
From what I understand, the hardware literally does not have the ability to read the burned disc.

What they said, i actually had a chance to get a brand new wii. but instead chose to get a used one, and got lucky and i think mine had 3.1 with boot2. i just thought "id rather have boot protection. then a brand new one" and it saved me money
