If you are starting from scratch, new 3.1-4.1 written by Dogeggs
If you already have Homebrew, upgrade to 4.1 written by Dogeggs
Don’t update to 4.2, but if you are already on 4.2, complete 4.2 guide written by Messie
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.
I hope you have a great time here at WiiHacks, and increase your knowledge of all things Wii.
Yo Devious got a black Wii myself, updated to 4.2e and homebrew is working fine. I think they could have made the base black too, silver looks a bit naff with black, what do you think?
Poor America... we've got black wiimotes and such on sale, but no system. Damn the rest of the world for getting that black wii!
Shame on me for grumbling about a colour lol! Feel for ya, honest I do
Got the black motionplus wiimotes, we'll see how well they play soon, just putting a few games on a USB HDD to test out the softmodding i've just done. Fingers X
I just sometimes feel the US gets the short end of the stick sometimes when it comes to Nintendo..
I started to gripe a few years back, when there was a Canada only contest for a life size Link statue (this thing was so badass), and then with Club Nintendo (although we recently got that within the past year).
There's absolutely no reason to not slap a few new colors on the console for the holidays and then release it in the US... unless they're trying to match the 26 million sold.. hoping that a 5 million unit gap will be met by Eur.
I just think that by being the dominant buyer in the market, Nintendo would have a tiny bit more love for the US. *shrugs*
Who knows what goes through the minds of corporate marketing people. I'm sure you'll get the black wii soon matey. Actually I'm surprised you haven't gotten it first, you ought to try eBuyer they have a US distribution.
Muhahahahaha... that was my next plan, polish it up, no finger prints, so its in all its blackness shiny glory lol! ;-)
Ive got a Wii with serial : LEH267147XX. is it possible to play backup games off disk with doggeggs guide for homebrew??????
