I've read mauifrog's guide for softmodding a Wii, but I don't really see anywhere where it says what you will get from doing so.
My basic question: Will a softmod allow a DVD-R backup disc to be played without swapping on the pre-D3-2 models?
Obviously a hardmod will do the above, but I've heard yes/no answers for this simple question from my friends. I thought I'd ask here to get the straight dope.
Thanks in advance.
