    Thinking about getting a Black Wii for softmodding.

    I'm interested in buying one, but I wanted to know if it's possible to downgrade from 4.2 to 4.0.

    Downgrading might just brick your wii. That particular one was never designed to run that system menu and there are softmod guides here for 4.2.

    Yes/no. It's part of our tutorials, but not all that's needed. Be aware, extremely unlikely you'll be able to play DVD backups due to D3-2 drive (USB HD gaming though, sure). Best to follow a 4.2 tutorial, like Shadow Sonic's below in the links:

    There are two different routes that you can choose for modding your wii. You can either Hard-mod your wii with mod-chips or you can Soft-mod. We have a in-house trusted supplier for mod-chips Here, very trusted site, and great customer service. When and if you going to hard-mod your wii there is a great section here on the forum. Mod-Chip Section

    On the Flip-Side you can soft-mod you wii using only a SD Card... The guides that are here have been tried and tested and do work... DON'T FOLLOW FAIL-TUBE VIDS.... The first step that you need to do is find out what system menu version your wii is. After you find out that piece of information there are two guides that you can use.
    If you are on 3.1-4.1 system menu you can use the guide by dogeggs: [[Guide]]
    If you are on the 4.2 system menu the you can use the guide by Shadowsonic2: [[Guide]]
