Hey guys- apologies if this topic has been brought up before-
Just recently bought a Wii from carphone warehouse, just last week.
Does anyone know what firmware would be installed on this console, and whether Datel's Freeloader would work with such a current console?
Heard on other forums that soft mods are the best ways to play other region games on my region console? Can someone explain that a bit?
Also, is there any way to disable any console updates/firmware, etc?
There are a number of JAP games I really want to be able to play on Wii...whats the best way to go about that for me?
Any advice would be appreciated! ^_^
There's no way to tell what fw will come on it. Might be 3.4, maybe 4.1, you'll have to wait and see. The rest of your questions are answered in the softmod guides in my sig below.
Yes your console will be able to play out of region games if you softmod, but because it's a new console it will probably have the d3-2 chip which prevents the drive from reading backup discs. If that's the case you'll have to load from usb.
