There are already hundreds of Wii softmod guides available on various websites today, but most of them only get people more confused about their Wiis. This article will elaborate some ways that you can use your Wii softmod.
In understanding your Wii softmod, first you should understand that all responsible guide sites out there aim to help you make good use of this feature. However, it is usually the technicality and imprecise way of conveying the information that makes this task difficult to understand.
Softmod is very important for Wii, as it allows users to do more things with their gaming console, such as back-up games or play DVDs. You should also remember that not all websites out there can help you; opportunistic individuals have spammed the internet to take advantage of people like you. They can put a virus in your unit or get access to your personal details so be sure to only deal with reputable sites.
The first thing you need to do is to prepare our Wii console and SD card. If you have any Wii console version from 4.3 and newer, you may need games such as Batman, Indiana Jones the Original Adventures, Star Wars – The Original Saga, Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s Wheelie Breakers, Super Smash Bros Brawl, etc. If you have older consoles, then you will certainly need either one of those games mentioned, or ‘The Legend of Zelda, Twilight Princess.’ Wii softmod can generally work in any given version of Wii, except of course for the Korean Wii, which has newer versions, usually from 4.3 up.
To clarify things, you will not lose anything when you set up your Wii softmod, all you will get is more functionality plus tons of extras. However, you should also understand that softmod will void your warranty rights and you will no longer get free repairs from Nintendo. If the unit gets busted, you have to take out some cash from your pockets to get it fixed by the professionals.
Be careful on who you’re dealing with online, lots of sites out there will sell you modification packages, telling you that no warranty issue will come up – this is not true. Also, another dilemma in getting into softmod is that, when you break your console, you would really have to buy new one, as it is usually irreparable.
Always remember that what you do with your softmod will always have an impact in the overall function of your Wii. Before you do any changes in your unit, make sure you back-up all of your files, especially your games.
