    Question Newbie to hacking Wii, overwhelmed by everything

    Well I've had my Wii since roughly last christmas, and only just discovered that it's hackable. Now I've seen alot of different shit in the last 10 minutes I'm so overwhelmed and don't know where to start or what to get. Could somebody put together a recommendations list or something like that with what stuff to get and what stuff to stay away from? Also, could somebody point me to a tutorial to get a free opera browser? Thanks

    Here's all my equipment:
    Australian Wii (PAL)
    1x Controller
    2x Nunchucks
    1x SD card
    2x USB drive
    Wireless Internet setup
    Wii Sport
    NBA 2008
    PGA 2008
    WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2008

    Nothing else, only those 3 games and all that other stuff.

    Hi,
    The best way is to orient yourself with the forum and read the stickied threads in each sub forum. There is much to learn, and this site makes it quite easy
    What you're interested in (opera browser info) can be found in the homebrew section I believe.

    Thanks for your reply, I'll take your advice and have a look around.

    Quick question: How long do you need the Zelda game to install the Twilight exploit? I'm thinking of just renting it.

    EDIT: Another question: Can you use a USB drive instead of an SD card?

    Yeah, you should rent it. You need it a max of 5 minutes (YOu may even be able to return it, saying it didn't work) Just make sure you have the files first.

    Did you update your Wii to the latest Firmware? If not, then don't. If you did, I don't think a Twilight Hack workaround had been found.....Yet.

    No, you can't use a USB drive.....again, yet.

    good afternoon all. i too must admit that im new to all this and just looking for a small piece of helpful information. i got persuaded to install all this stuff earlier and after much huffing and puffing was left to go it alone. now i have actually managed to install all the stuff i need ( i think ) but am having a slight problem with the starfall thing. i have followed all instructions to the letter downgraded to 3.2e but when i try starfall it just keeps saying FAILED! EXITING! im assuming this is relatively important because i tried a game copy but with no joy so this as far as im aware is the only thing standing in my way. any ideas where i go from here all help gratefully appreciated by my sanity.

    Instead of bumping up a topic from four months ago, maybe you could try making your own topic ^_^
