    My launch wii has been experiencing some serious graphical issues (out of warranty) so I thought I would look around my local electronics outlet for a replacement. I know the LU64+ wii has issues with downgrading and running certain cios dependent wares, but I also saw systems with serial numbers starting with LU387xx that looked suspiciously brand new. I was wondering if anyone has had a problem with these new systems or whether I can safely purchase one without having too much worry about it being difficult to hack. (Really looking for one with at most firmware 3.4 and the ability to run all home brew besides the NAND installed bootmii since I know that wont work)

    Thank you.

    i got a wii in december that was new but had a close serial number to the one u are talking about.

    my serial # is LU354......

    i couldnt install bootmii on boot2, but it wasnt "unhackable" like an LU64...+

    i think you will be fine getting one as long as u are ok with installing bootmii as an IOS

    I have a LU540xxx , and although it is a later serial , I CAN install on Boot2

    .I have another LU37 , which I CANNOT install on Boot2.

    So it looks like the serial number does not always indicate if BootMii can be installed on Boot 2
