    Question A few questions about bannerbombing

    Is there a safe way to hack your Wii to be region free using "bannerbombing", or will bannerbombing automatically make your Wii region free?

    Can I still use all of the official, standard channels of the Wii, such as Wii Shop?

    Is it possible to (enjoyably) play emulated N64 games on the Wii, with the right hacking?

    Thank you!

    the n64 emulator for the wii doesn't work very well, you are best off using vc titles for n64 games....and bannerbomb is just an exploit that allows you to run code, do what biigstyk suggests and have a good search/read/learn.

    I will tell you the answers you seek with a text and a link to a guide.

    No, using bannerbomb will NOT make your wii Region free.
    Follow this guide and install preloader with the correct hacks (http://www.wiibrew.org/Preloader/hacks): http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html

    Yes, you can use all official channels.

    And yes, you CAN emulate the Nintendo 64 console, though it's better to use Virtual Console (Buy it or install WAD's through wad manager) as the FPS on the Wii64 emulator (Wii64 - WiiBrew) is pretty bad and only some games work.

    I agree. Its location is surprisingly convenient much unlike the actual function of it.

    No matches whatsoever for "bannerbomb/bannerbombing, nintendo 64, softmod/ding, or virtual console, and not even a possibility of actually viewing the FAQ rather than having to search it blindly without results. That's one great user-friendly FAQ you've got right there!

    If you against all odds did manage to find the answers I'm looking for in the FAQ, I'd be very grateful if you provided me with the link(s) for them.

    Thank you.

    Is there any risk with installing the program to make the console region free, and is there any program I might be installing that will disable the Wii Shop channel, or other ones?

    I'm also worried when it comes to having to update the Wii's software when connecting to Wii Shop. Does it do this automatically?

    There is always a risk of damaging something when you are modding it for something it was never ment to do.

    I suppose, but I assume you, truth be told, know what I'm referring to. Is the risk considerable when done properly, or very minimal?

    @ Median: The first link you gave me only displays this on the wiki page:

    "There is currently no text in this page. You can search for this page title in other pages, search the related logs, or edit this page."

    If you follow the instructions word for word without deviating from them you will be fine. If an error happens while preforming a step in the walkthrough don't go on to the next step. Pause for a moment. Write it down here on the forum and we can help you.

    Not preforming steps properly will give you and most of us a headache

    alright, i apoligize for my vague answer. It would probly help your search if you entered Firmware version followed by the words softmod or tutorial. And so you know... bannerbomb just gets the hbc on your wii. your search should resemble this..
    (4.1u softmod) or (3.4u softmod tutorial)
