very noob questions about softmoding..
hi all, first port :)
I've been interested to softmod my wii (LU65 with the latest 4.1 firmware)
I've been reading around and oh man is the info overwhelming.. a billion patches and applications floating around.
I have a few simple questions to which I can't find the answer for certain:
1. I understand that you can 'brick' your wii..
a. When does this happen? (while playing games? While softmoding your Wii incorrectly?)
b. What are the consequences? Wii goes to garbage? Is it possible to recover your system once it's 'bricked'?
2. After successfully softmoding my Wii, is it simple to play backup games? (Can a young child just pop a CD in? Or does one require to apply certain patches and activate certain settings per game basis?)
3. Does the SD-card have to be 2-GB? (Will a 4-GB work?)
A heartfelt thanks for your help in advance.
