    What's the main difference between a softmodded Wii and a hardmodded Wii?

    From what I've read, a softmod is using a hacked Zelda Twilight Princess save file to put a Homebrew Channel onto your Wii, while a hardmod is physically disassembling your Wii and installing a modchip.

    I've also read that certain applications on the HBC allow you to burn and play Wii ISOs on a DVD, so why would someone use a hardmod instead of a softmod, when it is much more likely to brick a Wii with a physically soldered modchip?
