    Any Wii can be softmodded at this point. But getting an old or used one would be idea since you'd have a chance of getting one that can have BootMii/boot2 installed.

    I think, although someone may correct me. That as it stands all Wiis (at least all PAL and US NTSC) can be hacked at present (with a variety of methods).

    Newer Wiis cannot install Bootmii as boot2. Only as IOS.

    Which is why I returned my new one and purchased an old one. Actually, I purchased TWO older Wii consoles on ebay for about $20 more than it ran me for the brand new one. Bonus being that both were successful in boot2 bootmii install [​IMG]

    Same here i purchased two wiis off of ebay, really cheap cause i bought two that had a broken dvd drive, and both wiis could install bootmii has boot2 and the bonus was, one of the wiis just had coke split on it so i had to clean the laser, after that it worked great the other wii i had to replace the dvd drive. but in the end i had two older version perfectly working wiis
