so i just received my first wii-clip v4c-9 w/ d2pro pre-soldered from omc. my question is this... my wii is new, never been hooked up to the television... do i need to hook it up and run it through one time before installing the clip? or can i simply install the clip and then hook up the wii for the first time? also, i understand that the october 23rd update could render some wii's useless (perhaps i'm wrong about that)... but does that update only affect the softmod? or does it also affect a hardmod like the clip? do any updates affect a hardmod? by the way, i purchased the wii on monday so i seriously doubt it has that update. i noticed a pic of the v4c-9 w/ d2pro on wii-clipdotcom and it looks nothing like what i received today. here are pics of my clip/chip... i'm not doubting omc's judgment on this, just thought it was unusual when comparing it to the wii-clip site. just curious as i am really excited about getting this started. thanks in advance for any help.
