    if you are on 4.0 with no Cios installed then your better of going a hardmod atm

    If you are on 4.0 now and there are no previous installations of the homebrew channel and a cios, there's no softmod option for you now.
    A hardmod is more future proof. With every new update released, there is always the 'omg will my softmod still work!' talk and stuff. But with a hardmod, you don't have to worry about that. It will just work, always.

    as stated in the forums softcorps is coming with softmii 3.0 and will be a LEGAL form of CIOS corps with ALL UPDATED cios and will also have features such as running hacks from the disc channel [​IMG]

    This was also just posted guys [​IMG] http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=152838

    how can there be a legal version of cIOSCORP? that doesnt make sense to me [​IMG] surely anything that enables your wii to do unauthorised things is illegal lol

    either way, it sounds awesome, would that be installed over cIOSCORP then? and i'm guessing it'll support 4.0 system menu [​IMG]

    If you have D2E Drive Chip (with out epoxy) or Older Chip (ect. D2C, D2C2 or D2B leg cut...) use Wiikey2.
    If you have any new Drive Chip than above, you could go for DriveKey or WASABI DX.

    @ mikeyt1998

    listen here you crazy drag queen LOL j/k

    i am just tellin ya what skarface wrote in the thread [​IMG] LOL i dont even LIKE softmii it makes it easy on people who dont like to bother to read for the exploits...

    to me its important to know who wrote the files i install on my console and in regard to waninkoko'sd new downgrader the point is


    WE ARENT THAT FAR AWAY FOR THE 4.0 USERS [​IMG] AND WANINKOKO IS ON THE JOB now those are not official compiles but ARE official waninkoko codes! [​IMG] compiled for us a bit early im not saying DO THIS i stated above


    because Softmii 3.0 is the "easy way out" for MOST users who dont care to know who wrote what or how the mod is done...the ole Instant gratification generation cannot be bothered with details it seems LOL

    i gets ya, i dont just install willy nilly, thats why i never installed cIOS_r10! issues arose when it came about and i managed to read up before i took a plunge lol

    i like to know about how stuff works, that way, i'm not a noob about anything. although, i must say i do have a tendancy to say 'i think' a hell of alot when trying to help people XD and i felt a bit of an idiot before about the cIOS changelog [​IMG]

    and yeah, i'm a drag queen!! XD (also j/k, twas party time [​IMG])

    I can relate to that you never know this scene develops and changes on a daily basis all we can do is try to provide as accurate of info as we can...

    IT IS THE END USERS CHOICE to act upon any given comment of advice...be it good or bad advice...I would read and if your not sure...just wait and see what the guinea sheople say within the first few days of any given release someone will "take a plunge" so to speak! even if advised against it! lol
