Bought a wii online and received it today, there is no firmware version listed in the settings menu, how can I find out which firmware version I have, the serial number on the unit begins with LU50 so I figure it must be 3.4 or so, is there a way to offically update the firmware without locking out the possibility of using homebrew. Thanks in advance.
PS-also can't utilize sd card because it does not come up in data management with whatever version of firmware this is.
The disc update will put you at 4.2, but I would imagine bootmii will install as boot2 on that model, so I can't see any real disadvantages to 4.2 in this particulair case.
Depends upon what disk is used. There are only a few of the newer games that come with 4.2.
You were probably thinking of the official online update, which this person may end up having to do anyway.
