Just want to say hi! Just found this site after a friend asked about hacking a Wii. I don't even own a Wii but my friends know I'm into computers and electronics in general. I am sometimes called "The Geezer Geek" by friends. I am going to see what I can learn here. So far I see that modifications are best and easiest with pre 4.X software on the Wii. So I guess if I did want to get one to play with an older version 3.4 (or pre) would be best. If anyone can give me any hints or warnings about the new higher 3.x and 4.0 SW I will be glad to read the post. Meanwhile I'm a readin!!!!
System menus 4.1 down are the easiest to mod. Nintendo brought out 4.2 & 4.3 purely for piracy measures.
4.2 you can still use banner bomb but with the latest 4.3 you can not and you have to use one of the game exploits to get HB and bootmii installed (More detail in Mauifrogs 4.3 guide)
First of all we like new members to read the ►Forum Rules◄.. Please do your very best to follow them.
Updating to System Menu 4.3 is an instant Fail!
