hi! very new and confused here...
Hello, and first off thanks for this site! its great, and hopefully i can get some help.
im new to hacking/modding. a friend of mine hacked my wii for me and i have homebrew which is using my sd card with a n64 emulator (which isnt working... at all) and he just put wiiflow on to access my hard drive. i have a lot of questions, and i know this isnt the place for them. i searched but im not sure what a lot of the posts are about, i simply do not understand the terms used (like is my wii soft or hard modded? i have no clue!) could someone point me in the right direction? mainly i would really like to be able to access the internet through wii shop. but my system is at 4.1 and i know i can not upgrade without screwing everything up. we mainly would love to be able to download the netflix channel and the internet channel. any help at all would be most appreciated!

2009 Wii Serial numbers after LU3884XXXX and LEH2676XXXX have probably got the new D3-2 chip that prevents playing backup DVD's. They can still use original discs and USB loaders.
