Just got a new Wii
Just got a new Wii for Christmas and hoping to softmod but I have 4.2 and I am worried about bricking it.
I am anxious to get started.
Appreciate any help or comments
Hello, glad to see you join Wiihacks.com. This site is full of guides and tutorials. I personally researched for over 2 months and finally got mine to be modded. You say you got your Wii for Christmas? If so, you might not be able to play 'burnt' games, you might just be able to play from an SD card or HDD because of the new drives they put in them now. I have attached a link to the 4.2 guide on Wiihacks.com
Full hacking guide for 4.2 Wii
Link removed, not wihacks guide.

If the console is older than 2006 then chances are you might not be able to play DVDs, but you CAN play games off a hard drive, so you end up winning either way hehe.

Donít be shy, ask if you are stuck, just donít expect other people to do all the work for you.
Before you start anything, make sure you read the rules go over the tutorials, and most importantly, search before asking questions.
Make sure you post in the correct areas of the forums.

If you are starting from scratch, new 3.1-4.1 written by Dogeggs
If you already have Homebrew, upgrade to 4.1 written by Dogeggs
Donít update to 4.2, but if you are already on 4.2, complete 4.2 guide written by Messie
2009 Wii Serial numbers after LU3884XXXX and LEH2676XXXX have probably got the new D3-2 chip that prevents playing backup DVD's. They can still use original discs and USB loaders.
And please do donate to the forum if you are able so we can go on helping the Wii community.
I hope you have a great time here at WiiHacks, and increase your knowledge of all things Wii.
