    its good to have an older wii, as you will likely be able to install bootmii as boot2 (you will see at a later point).
    Go for the softmod any wii guide (link below).
    if you would post a short hello in the introduction section you ll be given your first set of useful links.
    browse the forum

    still have my wiikey1 in my console but of course only use my usb loader etc. just so much nicer, no disc burning, every game is running, nice coverflow effects in wiiflow or cfg loader.

    good luck for now

    yes.. i know..
    maybe you want to read.. before you start anything.. really important.
    check this
    then
    this

    go to systemmenusettings, top right corner will tell you which version you are on.
    4.2U for example

    do the softmodguide as it will tell you when and how you can backup the memory of your wii.
    your savegames won't be touched at any point. just do the guide and you will be able to play backups from disc or usb harddrive, watch dvds or movies from hdd, listen to music live streams etc etc


    do the Intro post: here
