I have bought a Wii 4.0E LEM101xxxxxx last week, unboxed and played around with the sports disc and than boxed it again. By the end of the week, it will be a present for the kids. Until then , I am finding my way in all the info about modding.
I want to avoid the experience with the Nintendo DSi (first time I connected to internet, it loaded a new firmware which made my flashcard unusable). Costed only 20 USD to buy a new one, but I hate to brick the Wii, so I'm carefull.
What do I intend to do ?
I want to play games which I can D/L through Usenet
I want to play the apps from the Homebrew channel
I do not need the internet functions (weather, news, shop, network play)
So if anyone can tell me what I should install and what not, I can ghet started
also, in my specific case LE101 and 4.0e, what are the points of attenton, and how can I get back to virgin state ?
thanks and greeting
Wii 4.0E serial nr LEM101xxxxx
