ive read a lot before asking these questions,and i had a hard time reading and searching cause im slow on understand eng xD,also its not my main language,and im live in israel :I
so what i need is a accurate answer to do my decision
im very confused about two choice:
1-buy a already hard modded wii.
2-buy a normal wii from my friend then softmod it
i used this site for my main ideas:http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...s-modchip.html
1-like i said i read about hard modded wii,and what made me like it that its faster and i can update my wii with no fear! and plays out of region!! then any (wii and game cube)games will work on it even new ones!!!,soo is thats true?
im going to but it from a wii,s seller near my city!! and i trust him since i bought my modded ps2 from him(and its work good),but what make me afraid to but it that i dont know what kind of chip they add in it but i know i may know if i open it :P,so is there other way to know,also what make me happy that he said if my wii dont work good then he'll fix it xD lool
2-so what i know its easy to do and have a lot future's things,but u cant update normaly, u cant play out region games and some new games will not work!!,so its true or not?
and its hard to update and play new game on it?
and one more question:can i downgrade my wii to 4.1 to restore region free for (soft mod),or it will brick my wii?

well thanks but its not accurate it didnt answer all my questions :P
im sorry I only answered some of you questions. May I give you a gold medal to?!!!!

Your questions are all over the map. Why would you downgrade or want to downgrade a softmodded Wii to 4.1? Softmods can do out of region @ 4.2 (hard mods cannot; not without mauifrog's downgrade tutorial that's only designed for hardmodders @ 4.2). Hardmod: update all day long (4.2 update will kill out of region as stated). Can't do USB HD. Softmod: install Priiloader to block online and disc updates, can do USB HD. I suppose it's whichever you want the most... laziness and money, or free and the flexibility of USB HD gaming. If it's a D3-2 drive, no hardmod will work (and even on softmod, you'd have to do USB HD gaming in such a case).
First of all updating isn't what allows you to play games, it is the ios's that are installed with an update and they can be installed and tweaked manually in softmod. In most cases 4.2 will not allow for region free in hardmods. Having a higher system menu version doesn't necessarily make you better off and Nintendo uses counter measures against all mods in their updates.
anyway the wii i want to buy is 4.2 and im sure cause the wii is very new in israel
and my friend wii is d2b 4.2(that i want to buy from him)
so i can play out region game on 4.2 wii soft mod without anything?
and (narse1979) if there a guide fo region free what its? i really search but i cant find one T_T expect mauifrog guide and its for hard modded wii,i just getting on all this thing just before a tiny time
srry all,and thanks

To clear things up. If you have the d3-2 then some modchips will work. Such as SunDriver and WODE.
Yes, all you have to do is force your region with a USB Loaderso i can play out region game on 4.2 wii soft mod without anything?
Damn I suck!!!!
ty but there just one more thing ,can i play free region backup dvd too?
and dont worry i check the wii's dvd drive chip in israel from this site:Wii Drive Chip Database
and theres not d3-2,its mostly d2b i think
Meaning... can you play out of region Backup DISKs as well.
Yes just force your region using the Loader you use.
Damn I suck!!!!
