Safe to mod new systems?
Hi, finally broke down and bought a Wii. Found this site and all the talk about modding the system. I've seen a few notes regarding caution modding new systems LU64+, mine is LU65. Have anyone sucessfully modded one of the new ones yet??

Once your wii hasn't been updated to 4.2, you can safely mod it. The only drawback of having these wiis is that you CANNOT downgrade as you will brick your console. Simply follow this guide properly and you should be fine:
Hm, whatch out for pe-loader on that final step with the new version console' i mean correct me if am wrong but i just went through a ruff one as i wasnt soppose to install with my newer version of wii
What system series did you mod? What was the problem with pre-loader?
The problem was not that it was a new system but Preloader does not work with 3.3 or 3.4 systems so if you have those it would be best to upgrade to 4.0 or 4.1 to use preloader but do not upgrade to 4.2(no real reason to IMO)
