    All black wiis will come with the dvd drive that won't read backups. And will come with 4.3 system menu.

    So, if you buy a black wii your only option to load games is through an external hard drive.

    I am pretty sure that any black wii has 4.3 on it (but don't quote me on that please). Your only chance at getting something below 4.3 is buying a white Wii and hoping that it has just been on the shelf for a long time.

    Stop in here and make a quick hello. Black Wiis are limited to USB HD for mods, other than a WODE or Sundriver in terms of effective mod(s). No optical for you, most likely.

    Any new wii console : black, white red or whatever isn't gonna play backups from disk, be able to install bootmi as boot2 , and have an undesireable system menu version on it.
    With any black wii there is no doubt about it.

    It depends of the build date as well. If the store or the warehouse has had it in stock for a while then it might have 4.2.

    I just bought a new black WII the other day at Best Buy and it has 4.2 systems menu. Is 4.2 or 4.3 better? I'm sure its 4.2. How I know is I clicked the light blue circle next to the sd thing that says Wii then click on the wrench in the next screen. The version is in the top right hand corner. Just letting everyone know that for just in case it may help someone in some way or other. I'm not sure how common the black with 4.2 are but I got one. Can try to make a you tube video of it but I'm not sure how clear the 4.2 will show up.

    4.2 doesn't require one of three original games in order to softmod it. Bannerbomb also still works on 4.2; it's the better choice, 4.3 offers zero improved functionality --- just more anti-piracy crap.

    Ok, the 4.3 system menu version is a fairly new occurance and I'm sure that alot of those black consoles were produced and pushed out into retail as soon as possible, so the chances of getting a black console with 4.2 are about 75%, but that leaves alot of magin in the retail market.
    bottom line is if you are looking for a console with the most volnerabities, best to look for a used one that predates anything in 09, and not a black one or a red one or anything else that comes out.

    If he could get one from early 2008 it would be better, since he could install bootmii as boot2.
