    A couple questions from a new Wii owner

    So i am buying a Wii off of a friend because i want to play games off a HDD. I pretty sure he has an original model with old FW. Should i softmod that FW or update via the Wii online to the new FW... 4.3 i believe? Other than that, any suggestions for me as to what i should run off the homebrew channel? Thanks in advance.

    Just follow the softmod any wii guide and it will tell you what to do.

    The guide did not state any advantage of being on a newer FW. That's why i am asking. I was wondering if any poster could clarify that for me?

    There are legitimate fixes up to System Menu 4.1 --- 4.2 and 4.3 exist only to be homebrew killers (read: disabling your ability to play backups).

    Sorry, I'm a total noob when it comes to the wii. I am use to hacking my Xbox 360 where you want to have the latest FW to play the newer games. So if my wii is lower than 4.3, i should keep it that way and just make sure i install priiloader when softmodding?
