    Im buying a wii on saturday help me?

    So im buying my Wii from walmart on saturday for my girlfriend's Xmas present.

    Now, ive been looking around on the site and it seems really hard to enable the back up games on the Wii.

    First of all guys, will i be able to soft mod a brand new Wii right out of the box?
    i have no idea what a brand new wii's firmware is so riddle me that!

    I own a few external HDD's and i have a sd card and all of that so i think i have all the tools necessary to softmod if i read around right.

    Anyways guys i would really appreciate some of your Wii hacking knowledge if you get the chance.

    thanks

    no doubt in my mind you'll be able to mod the wii. the issue, which it sounds like you may be aware of, is if it will have this new chip that won;t allow you to play backups from disks. you have external harddrives and you sound like the determination to use usb devices to play backups. if i had to guess i would think the system menu version would be 4.1 or less so you would be able to use the 3.1-4.1 softmod guide. there is alot of cool homebrew stuff you can add to, i love the retrogaming. and there is a descent chance you may end up with a wii that could play disk backups, but you never know

    more than likely you're gonna have the new chipset that prevents backup loading from discs. This is not a problem since you own external hard drives. Take a look in my sig for the usb loading guide. i think there's a link for what's compatible with the wii in it. Softmodding won't be a problem, the only thing that would arise would be the inability to load from burnt dvds. Also, depending on your firmware (which will probably be 4.0 or 4.1 since it's new) use the guide in my signature to softmod.

    Sounds great guys, thanks.

    I'll get back to you all after the Wii is purchased and opened on Xmas.

    I really appreciate both of your inputs.

    Thanks so much
