I am new to soft modding and have been reading the forums here for the last several days. I have successfully installed HBC, bootMII, DarkCorp, and downgraded my system from ver 4.3u to 4.1u. In the future I will be adding an USB harddrive and would like to be able to play DVD's on my Wii. Thanks to all for the great information that is contained on this site.

Don’t be shy, ask if you are stuck, just don’t expect other people to do all the work for you.
Before you start anything, make sure you read the rules go over the tutorials, and most importantly, search before asking questions.

2009 Wii Serial numbers after LU3884XXXX and LEH2676XXXX have probably got the new D3-2 chip that prevents playing backup DVD's. They can still use original discs and USB loaders.
