    Brand new to Wii hacking

    Hello, I've decided to go purchasing a Wii in order to jailbreak it. Following the soft mod guides won't be a problem, my question is I'm unsure what firmware the current Wiis run at. I own a PS3 and am familiar with firmware in general.. just unsure if the current firmware is able to be jailbroken. Thanks.

    P.S. I'm intending to find the Wii model with gamecube support

    I'm not exactly sure, but I think current Wiis would run at the latest firmware, that is 4.3. However, if I were you, I would wait a few months to buy the new Wii U, which releases on November 18 (my birthday xD).

    Thanks! I'm holding out for some different games for Wii U before I buy that!
    Also, I was wondering if you are able to backup Wii or GC on an SD or external hdd, or does it require a disc or something? Thanks

    Check out the various guides in the Tutorial section, or take a look at some threads in the Introduction boards. There you should find some answers.

    Currently all firmware versions can be softmoded, to see what firmware version your wii has simply go to the settings tab and you'll see it on the top right corner.

    Thanks! I was able to soft mod my Wii successfully. Only issue I'm having is about DIOS MIOS which I tried getting to work. I installed both 2.0 and 2.2 using WiiMod, and it says it worked but I don't get any new icons on the main Wii page. Also, I tried running a backup GC game using Configurable USB Loader, and WiiFlow. It sees the backup I made, but when I launch it it simply launches the GC game disc I have in the system. Any ideas?
