I already posted this question in another section, but I'm not sure anyone would supply so here it goes again..
I was reading an older post...... anyway it said something to the extent of depending on your chipset will determine if you will be able to play back up dvds or not. Anyway I checked my chipset via wiidrives.com and it seems I have a GC2R-D2A or a GC2-DMS. Mind you, my Wii is Japanese and it was produced it on 06. I'm also running on a 4.3 system. I'm assuming that since I don't have a new chipset, if I get a modchip I can burn and play backup Japanese version wii games but not American or Pal games, right b/c of the update...?..if anybody with advice about this could reply I would be grateful.
yes, most mods will work for you but since you have 4.3 firmware then out of region will be disabled.
which can be fixed with some softmodding.

but in order to directly soft mod I would need one of these 3 games in Japanese (Yu-gi-vah, Super Smash Bros or Lego Indiana Jones)..there is no way I'm going to get them seeing that: 1-the import edition of Super Smash Bros is too damn expensive and: 2-I can't find the other import editions of those other 2 games...Unless you or somebody you know has an import copy of one of those 3 games and are willing to let me borrow it..then I don't see how i could directly soft mod..
