Thread: Softmod -v- Modchip -- An accurate breakdown

  1. #1
    @mods. All the faq/tutorial sections are locked up where I can't post in them. Feel free to remove any replies to this and move it over to one of those sections.

    I know there's currently a guide that attempts to do the same. However, it also bases it's information on backup launcher .3 (WTF), and states softmoding can't do GCN backups (WTF) along with a slew of biased and subjective statements.

    not to bugger your thread, but i thought softmod reads at 3x and some chips run 3x. Some mod chips read 6x so just some chips will have faster read speed..

    nominate for atleast a sticky

    I debated the "chipset" change before posting. But I was afraid the wording would make it sound like I was referring to the modchip, and not the Wii itself.

    nice post ossot - though i would class emulators/wiiware/HBC as softmod?

    True true. I tried to use the other as a basis for that one. Wiiware I definitely wouldn't consider a mod at all. And HBC & emulators are more apps than mods really. HBC technically is a software modification, thus classifying it as a softmod. But I think it's end-goal and the overarching purpose and safety of installing it put it outside the boundaries of both.

    I guess none of those three really modify the Wii or it's firmware/ios's themselves. Once you get down to that next level, cios's, dvdx, preloader -- that's where I think the line is far less blurred.

    If you want to see lolz, read the old one in the sticky section. Not only does it not define HBC as a softmod, it gives the impression it's exclusive to modchips.
