    I understand that the system update 4.0 is currently unable to be soft modded. If someone were to go out and buy a brand new Wii today, are they all updated to version 4.0? If not, is there any indication on the box to let you know what the system version is?

    Thanks.

    Only way to know is too buy it, plug it in and lok on the configuration section on the upper right corner.

    4.0 has been out for a month already, so it wouldn't be uncommon to see it installed already

    It all depends on whether you are buying old stock thats been stock piled since xmas, or brand spanking new ones.

    Nope, they are probably are going to be 3.3, 3.4 if your really bad and somehow nintendo made a new shipment with the 4.0 install. But most likely it will be 3.4.

    4.0 is relative new and becouse of that it should have 3.4

    Yeah, I'm asking for a friend as well. I'll do the same for you if he gets his first.

    Thanks again everyone.

    I bought my Wii when 3.4 was already out. I got my Wii in November and I believe 3.4 came out on October 23rd and mine was on 3.3u. I would say its safe to assume that they are on 3.4 and not on 4.0 but don't take that as gospel.

    There have been reports that system menu 4 has shown up in some areas. However, its not going to really matter in a couple of days, if the info being talked about in the softmii irc room. Time will tell.

    you could buy it... if it has system menu 4.0 on it, brick it and send it in for repair. If you live on the east coast, it will get sent to NY and they might give you a 3.3 system back [​IMG] I got mine back today and it was 3.3
