Wii, Ps3 and 360 Owner here. I have had the wii since it first came out and gone through all the software updates unfortunately. Finally decided to make my wii a non-virgin hopefully I can get some help around with 4.3. Looking to softmod and learn whatever I can.

Many of our new members find the tutorials for softmodding any 3.1-4.1 Wii and any 4.2 Wii or the full hacking guide for 4.2 Wiis particularly useful.
