A new member here and have just recently got my hands on a second hand Wii for my son thru a PSP+ PS2 swap deal. I consider myself fairly knowledgeable when it comes to P.C stuff but the Wii is a bit of a different one for me. But then again, I am really looking forward to educating myself in the ways of the Wii :018:.
I have read and researched but hopefully, you can provide me with further information
--The Wii I purchased: I have not checked the serial number but it looks a bit old, the kid said that he got it as a b-day present when he turned 9, the kid looks like he is 14 now so I presume that the Wii I got is a bit old.
--The version is 3.1u
--It is able to play back up DVD copies of Wii sports and Spiderman Friend or Foe, the other ones that I have tried failed like Farcry, House of Dead and Mario Kart
--Does not seem to have Homebrew installed
I am really happy when my wife, son, siblings and my mom enjoyed playing wii, even if we are only able to play Wii sports tennis as of now. It gave a different feeling as compared to when I got my ps2, psp, computer, family computer etc. wherein I am the only one who enjoyed playing them.
I am now planning to softmod our Wii using Mauifrog's guide after I obtain an SD card. Fingers crossed. My only question is, based from my description of the Wii, could the Wii have been hardmodded as it is able to play backup DVD even without HB installed?
Regards and thanks in advance.
