    New to Emulators on wii - help plz

    I've been looking through the forum here and I'm trying to find a thread on hacking my wii. The thing is I don't want to brick my console with the wrong software. I got my wii when it first came out so it has the first firmware, but I would like to update it to the newest firmware that would allow it to play emulators. So could someone direct me to a guide that will allow me to update to the appropriate firmware and will explain how to run emulators on my wii?

    I'm not actually interested in any hombrew besides the emulators.

    Really want:
    NES
    SNES
    Genesis

    Would like to have:
    Gameboy advance

    2 additional things:
    1) Do I have to use a SD card or can I use a USB thumb drive.

    2) Another thing is that "New Super Mario Brothers" looks like a really cool game. Would it be possible to play the emulators and use newer games like that?

    Thanks in advance.

    Is your Wii already modded? If not, DONT UPGRADE THE FIRMWARE THROUGH NINTENDO, click on the tutorial guides above and go to the thread based on your firmware

    If it is modded, then you should check out the stickys in the Emulator thread (the one this post is in).

    Did that answer your question?

    4.1, and you must use a SD card to mod the Wii.
