    Will everything work out?

    So i've been reading around the forum threads to get some info about softmoding, since this is all new to me.<br>My question if that i haven't found an answer for yet is: <br><br>My friend got an really old Wii that i can buy really cheap from him, it hasn't been used for a LOOOOONG time, so i guess it got a really old verson, so when i'll update, will it auto update to a new version of the wii, not possible to softmod?

    What i mainly want to do is to get some old GameCube games and play on it, is there some that i forgot think off/something speciall i require to do that?

    Kindest Regards, Koopos :3

    All wiis can be softmodded. Follow the anywii guide in my signature and use that to go to system menu 4.1. It's the best SM and you can still play all the latest games on it. Don't do a nintendo update since that will take you to 4.3

    I may have missunderstood something, but according to the guide, it "Works with 4.3u/e/j/k".
    And if 4.3 is the latest update, why dose that matter if i update to the newest?

    And like i said, im very new to all this, so i may have missed something.

    The guide I linked will actually get you more up to date than 4.3 will. 4.3 was only released to kill homebrew and you might lose the ability to install bootmii as boot2 depending on how old the wii is. Just stick with the guide I linked and avoid all nintendo updates. That guide actually has a step on installing priiloader which is used to block nintendo updates.

    Another Question!
    I'll most likely buy a
    completely new Wii, and there is a possibility that it will have the latest update, i just want to confirm that it will still work out to softmod it and install the stuff i need to be able to play GC backups.

    Completely new wii is a different issue since it has a new drive in it that prevents it from loading backed up discs. Since you want to play backed up GC games you would need a WODE (google it. It's a chip that allows for GC loading via usb hdd) installed. I would go with the older wii if I were you. Older wiis have a better chance to load backed up games via disc. Your brand new walmart wii can load GC games if they are the originals but can't load backed up GC games. Just think about it. I'd go with the older one if I were you.

    Just one more question, how old is an "older Wii".
    When did they start to produce the "new ones" with the fixed Boot2?

    Edit: Ohh, you got a guide in your sign called "USB Loading", is that one only for Wii games or do you have to follow another guide if i wanna USB load GC games?

    Don't know the exact date the started putting out wiis that couldn't do boot2 but as far as usb loading the guide in my sig is for wbfs formatted hdds. You can also load through fat32 or ntfs. I would go with ntfs if I were you since you can have your games on the same place as your other files on the hdd. Guess I need to update my sig.

    Hey again, So i found a friend that can sell me a Wii, he got it 2-3 years ago, he said.
    I Checked the list for Boot2 Compatible, but i just got confused.
    Got any clue if "LEH21507081[2]"(EU) works?
