    As some of you may know already, I was stupid and installed a System Menu to get rid of Preloader. The screen is black and SaveMiiFrii doesn't seem to be working. Today I went to a game store and they had a used Wii (+ Controller & Chuck + everything else) for $200. It was also LU50, which I'm pretty sure is good in terms of Softmodding. So, I woud like to get your guys' opinions. What should I do?

    Get the $200 LU50

    Send in my Wii and hope they don't charge me an extra $100. Also, I take the risk of them giving me a higher LU, which I read is worse for Softmodding.

    Something else

    Thank you for your help

    1] Call 1-800-255-3700.
    2] Pay the 90 something dollars to replace your Wii. [they wont charge you no extra anything]
    3] Wait for your replacement.
    4] Follow my guide correctly.

    As for serial numbers i doubt they will give you a LU64+ model, but even if they were to you can still mod it with my guide.

    I'm pretty sure I heard that if they found modded content then they'll charge you extra for fixing it. If they're not, I'll just send it in. Thanks for the reply.

    Look at the number on the bottom of your Wii. It reads LU########. The first 2 numbers after LU are it.
