My softmodding experience is entirely with older systems, but I still took my time researching, and I've had a great experience. I modded my first Wii after stupidly progressing with the October 2008 update. This was long before convenient advances such as Bannerbomb existed, and tutorials were new and "iffy." Everything on my Wii(s) has followed Waninkoko's lead, with the Trucha bug leading the way, and avoiding cIOSCorps along the way. I've never had any incompatibility, problem, or brick from softmodding, and everything worked as reported by others. Overall it's been a smooth experience, mostly because of the time I invest reading, and researching other's problems. So how has your experience been? Mine has been so fun, I spend more time on gbatemp, then I do playing my Wii. This is my hobby, I love to test things, and once I get them to work, I move on to the next new development. My Wii was once a disappointing system, and now it's a virtual jukebox, loaded with enough games to last a lifetime. It's the little system that could, and I'm finally getting my money's worth.
