    (Advice) Two modded Wiis... which should I keep?

    I now have two soft-modded Wiis. One is the black Sports Resort console. The other is an older white with a GC2-D2B drive that I bought, hoping it would read DVDRs. No dice, NeoGamma says it's too new.

    The only difference I can see between the two is that the black was brand new and I have the box, paperwork, etc. but I had to load BootMii to IOS. The older model allowed me to load BootMii to boot2.

    I don't need/want both of these units. What unit should I keep, and why?

    Keep the boot2 wii.. it may be older but boot2 is your savior if you ever do anything stupid..

    now if you only plan on doing things like playing back ups from hdd and only basic stuff where you arent messing with the nand to much than the boot2 doesnt really matter.. but if you are planning on REALLY getting into it and modding the crap outta it I would keep the boot2

    Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here

    This is a good reason to choose the boot2 wii. However, I think the other wii is perfectly fine as well and it really comes down to what the OP feels about having booklets and stuff with the wii.

    I can't really say which one to take as it is your choice and think of them as both being equally good.

    Boot2. Keep the boot2. If the poo ever hits the fan and you mess something up boot2 will swoop into your rescue. They're super hard to find and can save you from 99.9% of most bricks.

    AS redundant as this may be,"Keep The Boot2"!
    It will save your Wii.
