    My sister just got a 'new' Wii as a freebie as part of a mobile (cell) phone deal in the UK.

    I don't think it's new as the version number is 3.4E

    When I try the first part of softmoding it says:-

    Using IOS versions Installer 38, HBC 38
    Homebrew : Can be installed
    Bootmii Can only be installed as an IOS
    The installed boot1 version prevents a boot2 install (-2)


    I have softmoded 4.2E's before with out any problems and they have always allowed Bootmii

    Can someone tell me the best way to softmod this one, if I upgrade to 4.2 will it allow BootMii or not ?

    What's the best way forward?

    Thanks in advance,
    Fred

    really no difference to moding a 4.2 wii

    but yeah you can update to 4.2 and update then.

    I thought that as it only had 3.4E it wuld be an older model, mine had 4.2 and I successfully installed Bootmii

    Ive softmodded many 3.4 wiis that dont have a vulnerable boot1. Luck of the draw really. As locoroco said priiloader is your best friend.
    As to the question of "best way to softmod" try the guide in the stickies that says "modify ANY Wii" (that means yours) or use NUSAD (my favorite)
