    Hello everyone! i will be a wii owner in a few days. First of all thank you for such a great forum and tutorials. I read most if not all of them and get the basics. i want to soft mod my wii rather than a modchip simply beacuse it is cheaper:) so here are my questions. I live in japan if it will help

    1)Even though i read the guides and they say for all nintendo wiis available even for 4.1e (i think this is the last version) i want to get a black wii and i know it is quite new are there any known problems is it possible thath it will come with a higher version lets say 4.2? [​IMG]

    2)since it is new i think i will not be able to install bootmii as a boot2 and will have to rely on preloader for a brick protection. but unlike a boot2 bootmii in casa of bad brick when i cant reach my system menu i wont be able return to a good point?and also i dont want to spend some money on camecube controller as far as i read i think for the new versions of bootmii you dont need gc controller and can use power and reset button to navigate?

    3)hwo can i check the serial just by looking at the box

    i am sorry if i have asked some stupid question and if they are already answered in the tutorial. if so i think i just missed them [​IMG]

    1] 4.2? your trippin. there is no such thing. the guides they work with every wii for a reason.

    2] preloader and bootmii as an IOS should be fine for brick protection.

    3] i dont think you can, but the serial doesnt even matter anymore, so dont worry about it.

    I got a new wii for a friend a few months ago
    The SN on the box should match the wii version

    Good luck with your new wii and Here is hoping you share the fun and pain of hacking like most of had.

    I think he is just saying in theory, that when he gets his wii, there might be some other features on it from Nintendo making it < 4.1 in terms.

    there won't, he's not special, nor is the color of the wii.

    What rate do you mean? You mean like framerate or consistency of games working rate? Both are probably 99%. You won't tell the difference between a game being played on legitly through the disc channel or a game being loaded through a backup on USB Loader or NeoGamma. There's only very few games with issues.

    hi guys

    bought a UK Pal Black Wii package.

    I have followed the 4.2 softmod guide created by xzxero. eveything installed fine as per the instructions, but i had to install preloader 29 instead of 30.

    i installed usb loader gx, via wad launcer,plugged in my usb hardrive, but when i click start on the usb chanel, i only get a black screen.

    i tried to install cisorev14, but soon as it opens, it says iso249 and the wii just freezes.

    any ideas???
