    brand new wii. what version is it

    if i were to go to the local walmart or shopko target etc. and i bought a brand new wii. what firmware version is it. i was hopeing for 3.2 or lower. i m thinking they are sitting on the shelves for quite a while now. if i plug a new one in i bet it would probably try to update versions, so i would turn that off and put in homebrew in. then update. would it work?

    should work so long as the new wii doesn't come with version 4.0 firmware

    You could get lucky and the store could still have one of the wiis with 3.4 on it. It would be random chance of course
    Who are you to question why your god doesn't want me to believe in him?

    You can not install homebrew on the newest Wii's, proven fact. Also most new Wii's will come with 4.0 on them, and maybe epoxy on the drive.

    You can check the firmware version in the Wii system menu, it is a matter of time before exploits are re-written to work with 4.0 or an entirely new one is discovered so I would either hold onto it or buy an unmodified console second hand.

    Yes that new bannerbomb looks promising, but its a matter of time, i bought mine about a month ago and it came with 3.4u but it was obviously a returned product, didn't come with the stand and had some nasty ass pic of a cat licking his balls on the photo channel, so i don't know what it originally came with, but it did have 3.4 and the internet had a network saved so the guy had been online before and probably updated
