noob finally got on the bandwagon
hello..finally bought a wii on xmas that came with 4.2
googled this site up...oh wii hacks.. and it came out 1st... there are so many tuts out there ... i hope this is the only one i need to find reliable source of info.
i skimmed quickly through some threads... and is it true that the only problems with the newest wii is that the DVD hardware wont read back up DVDs,,,other than that it can be fullly hacked and unlocked like all other wiis out there?
SOrry i guess i just want to get it out and ill probably answer my own question after reading...but there s so much to read..
my only concern is:
1. can it be done safely wo risk of bricking, banned from online services
2. can it be detected while im connected
3. can i revert for whatever reason
guess i better start reading... wish me luck
