    This guide has now been updated to cover ALL wiis, 3.0-4.1 any region, and all LU64+ and foreign equivalents. (dunno about those Korean ones?)
    LU64-65++ serial no. wiis still cannot downgrade their firmware - if you bought your wii this year then it most likely will be one, so don't downgrade it!
    Make sure you do the steps in the right order or you could run into problems, and read the guide through a couple of times before trying it. Read ALL OF IT! First person to asks if it will work on their wii gets an infraction!
    I know these are extermely retarded questions, but my wife said she would castrate me if I messed up our Wii. So I had a couple questions before, I did so.

    A) My Wii Serial is LU65**** I checked the S/N www.wiidrives.com and it said it could be modded with a chip. However, I just bought the thing 2 weeks ago and dont want to open it with my warranty still in effect. So am I able to SoftMod the Wii even though it is quoted that a downgrade can not be performed or is the downgrade a necessary part.

    B) If and when I SoftMod my Wii. Will I be able to reverse the mod in the event I want to sell it or get it serviced under my warranty?

    I appreciate any help anyone can give and I apologize for the newb questions.

    Exclamation Freeze trouble

    OK, so I went through all the steps with no problems, then when i went to step 5, the preloader warning screen comes up then freezes, also everytime i try to open neogamma or any other backup launcher it freezes and finally, I started with a virgin 4.1U wii, and everytime i try to downgrade via the app, it gives me an error message and wont let me downgrade.... any clues to any of this stuff?

    I had the same problem with the preloader warning..I also thought it froze...so I started to do some reading on the internet while leaving the wii on with preloader being 'frozen' and 10 minutes later I look on my tv screen and see that it did load. It just took a while.

    The only problem I have after doing these mods is that the photo channel freezes. I just get a black screen...and that's it. Any idea how I can solve this?

    yes i did install preloader, i don't know if you recall. i was having trouble with the hacks.ini file but then it ended up working from a smaller stick. i tried disabling all the hacks, but it didn't make a difference.

    what would cause the games not to work from dvd but still work from the usb? what do you suggest i should do?

    @v4s - a) you can softmod without downgrading b) you can reverse it without too much hassle

    @steavis - no idea what up with your photo channel?

    @kmorgan - try reinstalling your cios - step 3d

    @medo - what hacks have you got enabled?

    i had the region free ones for wii and gc games and the prevent updates, but now none are enabled.

    when you go into hacks and make a change and hit save, is it just supposed to say settings saved, or is it supposed to go through a process like it did the first time?

    That is excellent, I just got off the phone with my wife and she said my menu version was 3.4u. I have been reading around in Google as to whether to upgrade to 4.1. So far, the information is back and forth with no real explanation as to whether it is a good or bad idea to upgrade.

    I don't have any high-speed internet where I live *unfortunately* however I have shared a modem connection across my wifi so my other systems can get net access. *drag*

    Is there an offline method that would be possible and if not. Would a standard modem connection support any downloads that need to be performed during this modification?

    I really appreciate the help and look forward to modding my system if I can.

    Thanks for your hard work. I have been reading about softmods for about a week now. This guide was so exlaindd thAt had to register and say thanks.. Also I wanted to ask u something. Can I go through the guide and then make a NAND back up? I have a 512mb Sd and the Wii didn't like the 4g. SDHC card I had. Wanted to softmod today. Do I need nand backup at the point u addressed it or will going all the way and then doing a NAND backup in a couple days not be smart?

    Thanks for all the time u have invested in this forum and hobby..

    Rob..
