I want to softmod it but I do not know what chip was used ( it is my cousin's wii which they got from malaysia). i want to have some clarification before i poetentially brick the wii. I plan to use Deviyl's thread but i don't know if I should use anyregionchanger before doing so. The wii is currently at 3.1j and is chipped to play pal and ntsc games ( a few pal games do not work). I was thinking of doing the first step with hbc and bannerbomb and then changning to 3.2j then 3.2u then maybe upgrading to 4.1? Then maybe finishing the rest of Deviyl's thread. thanks in advance for any help and sorry for being a noob.
