Hi again, i've read the previous guides, and have a little idea of how things work with soft mods, but my wii isn't that vulgar It has a wiikey 1.9s and the reset button doesn't work due to previous experiences with a welder so i wanna know, can i softmod it anyway? will bootmii first install work with a gamecube controller and allow me to backup nand? (cause i dont have reset button) should i update to 4.2 first or can i play nsmb with 4.1 softmodded? (i prefer something more conservative) will my wiikey have any influence on that? thanks for reading edit: btw conservative = save, future proof, update proof etc i know no one can guarantee that but i'm patient when something new comes around and i prefer to be able to retrieve all back like it was before by the way, is preloader any better than bootmii? will a kingston 1gb mini sd card do the job?
