Krank thx for ur answer
I do NOT plan to do both --soft and hard mode, i actually plan to do only hard mode eventually.
soft mod seems that it does need quite some maintenance --and even more for specific popular games.
I have my 360, my psp, my ds and in a way my pc and my ps3 to keep in game-ready state!
So i am looking for an "easy" way to be able to check some games in wii.
It seems that the region lock is the only thing that firmware is locking in hardmods.
Still are some hard mods actually more future proof than others?
I mean most new-ish ones support some way of updating.
I would be willing to pay for lets say a wode--to be able to load from external hdd as well, but there are rumors of some problems it has.
I may even go all the way back to a simple wiikey, even version 1 as my console is supported.
Every new thing speaks about it being future-proof, but why should i care for it?
I may even wait a bit (?) more yet again for the new thing from Sun, but would that be worthy?
sorry for yet more questions but i kinda need some more answers...
and thx again!
