    Will a brand new black Wii be 4.2 or 4.3 do you think?

    Hi, Not bought new wii yet,
    I have been studying the softmod guides and because of the exploit methods (bannerbomb or using a wii game exploit)
    If I buy a new UK wii now (Nov / Dec 2010) will it ship at version 4.2 or 4.3 does anyone know?

    Thanks.

    No way to know for sure which SM it will have. If it is 4.3 you know what you have to do. Rental stores and/or friends come in handy for it too!

    You might get lucky and buy one that's been sitting around for a while that's still on 4.2. When I bought my Wii 4.1 was the standard but I got lucky and mine was a 3.4 with a drive that could play burnt discs. I purchased it brand new from Best Buy so it was just random luck.

    It doesn't really matter since they are all hackable. If you can save a few bucks on ebay it's not a bad idea. Your warranty is going to be voided when you mod it anyhow.

    But 4.3 can't use bannerbomb, so he has to buy SSBB, Indiana Jones, or Yu-Gi-Oh, depending on his region.

    I agree about ebay. If you could get one that was made before mid-2008, you could use boot2, play burned backups, and DVD's.
