    What is the least softmoding I would need to do to play region free games?

    I have a 4.3U, and I know there are no known guides or mods for this update. At this point I am just curious...Let's say if I had a virgin 4.2U, what would I need to do to softmod the console to just play region free. No playing backups, or downloading games or using channels or anything else. Anybody willing to indulge my whim? =)

    Never quantify your life by comparison. It is always going to be apples to oranges. If you feel the need to always look down on others, you currently do not own enough mirrors------ Tommie Griffin.

    Let me get this straight: you want to softmod, but not for playing backups? You already received our guides for doing a softmod as a response to your Introduction post/hello. The purpose I suppose, would be simply to play PAL on NTSC or vice versa?

    The answer: do our softmod guide, regardless if backup or original (but out of region), it really doesn't change anything. Also if the Wii is less than a year old, it most certainly would require original (which according to your post is not a problem) as would have D3-2 drive. The bottom line: no real or meaningful difference, do the softmod that you were linked to.

    Edit: you could always buy a hardmod and follow maui's guide to downgrade to 4.1, which would allow for region-free gaming on your Wii. That thread exists for a specific group, for a specific purpose (hardmods won't play out of region games on 4.2). Your scenario if original media would allow for this to work, again provided you go a hardmod route. D3-2 wouldn't be a factor if store-bought discs.
