bricking wii is for people who don't pay attention
I bought a wii on monday and it's already soft moded with 4.2u and never had any problems, understand what i need to do to avoid bricks, this device's only benefit is for those who don't understand or do not wish to learn about how a wii works.
After about 12 hours of reading, and tweeking, i'm runing homebrew with all previous systems emulated of a 300GB SATA external drive, have a wsbc partition of 250Gig with over 20 iso's on it and multipartions of fat 32 for my 5K+ roms. I do like how you can play GC without disk but i'm sure someone will come up with a GC emu at some point.
i'll save the 110 as i can get another used Wii for that if ever i brick mine cause i do something STUPID.
