If I want to softmod, does it help to install Wiikey also?
I have had a Wiikey installed for a couple of years now. I haven't installed any homebrew/softmod stuff as I haven't run into enough games that don't work properly. I will be doing that though so I'll have other questions for that I'm sure
But about the subject...... A friend of mine has a NTSC Wii purchased on launch day and got a Wiikey about 6 months ago but didn't install it. He wants me to install it now after all this time.
Since it seems that softmod is the only way to play newer backups now, is there any advantage of installing the Wiikey anyway and not having to use the Twilight hack?
no! if is soft moded you do not have to have a m-chip
