    Bought Wii from a friend..

    And it is already soft modded.. I'm not sure as to the method used, the firmware, etc... He has a 2gb sd card, It also came with a 500GB WD my passport external HDD... Games are incredibly slow to load off of it, and I'm not sure why... Like 15 minutes and I'm not on the title screen yet, but its still loading. He has USB LoaderGX on there...

    I'd also like to get the Netflix channel up and running, i've read some tutorials, but as I'm unsure of what version of anything I have, I'm very cautious to do anything yet..

    I've tried reading the tutorials,.have them bookmaked etc. I'm pretty savvy at stuff once I know where I'm at, so I'm just looking for advice on how to recognize anything about the Wii and just point me to the correct tutorial after and I can probably figure out the rest. Apologies if I missed a tutorial that was obvious for this situation.

    Thank you!

    There are ways to see whats been done to the wii but I suggest you just follow the softmod any wii guide linked in my signature. Doing so will ensure that your mod and apps are up to date as well as give you the experience you need to know how to address future changes. Once you follow the guide you will be able to safely download the netflix channel too. As far as slow loading games, perhaps the updated mod will help or it's an hdd issue. I suggest that you just use the original discs until you have remodded.

    Thank you, my only question is following the guide closely and accurately will just overwrite and make sure I have the most current files? If so, I appreciate the fast response and will get to work!

    yes. going through the guide will update the existing mod with the modded file that we recommend. The result will be the same as if you modded a virgin wii using the same guide.
