I am not new to modding, having chipped several XBOX's and PS2's. I work as a Senior IT Network Engineer. My question is this - what is the correct way to softmod a 4.3U Wii so that I can play backed up games from an external USB hard drive? My kids are very hard on discs and I would rather them not have to touch them at all. There seem to be many different opinions on how to do this, but I am looking for a clear, concise understanding of what must be done and what each step entails. If someone would be so kind as to point me in the right direction I would be most appreciative. I have read many, many different sites, blogs, etc. and watched more videos that were probably necessary, but I have not found a concrete 4.3U solution. Thanks!
