    and oh if you were answering those guys above me then pls disregard this post sorry will wait for eenine's elaborated version but hey thanks

    btw any good brad of SD in mind? my next question would be how do i downgrade my firmware?
    i anwser down the line as you ask, i dont think you need to be pandered to and giving 200 words, and 10 pics, when i can tell you you can do it, because most people just ask if its doable

    also ALL FAQ posts by me, explain things in detail
    terms
    best guides
    most asked questions
    how to search
    how to ask properly
    etc

    if you want to smack me in the face, then ill tell E3, to post, and ill stop helping =\

    SD cards are good for the most part nothing over 2 gigs, if youre worried get sandisk, they make the officials if i recall

    Yes. An SD card is absolutely necessary.

    NewEgg.com is a fantastic place to purchase SD cards. They're tax free and offer free shipping. If you wanted to go somewhere local, there's a good sale at Office Max this week.
    http://www.wiihacks.com/lounge/8218-...ls-thread.html

    You gotta make sure that the card you're using is a standard SD card. There are some labeled SDHC ... and those aren't compatible at all. A standard SD card is typically at 2GB max. SDHC is 4GB and over.

    You want something like this, note the SD logo ...


    and NOT like this, note the SDHC logo ...

    Good. You can follow the guide in my signature more easily. Everything will work without modification (the save files that is)

    Unless you're modchipped, you need an original. Go rent it.

    Absolutely follow the guide in my signature. You're at the exact firmware it was written for.

    You can burn your own games and I have a detailed tutorial in the burning forum, stickied. It's a 2 part'er ... one for ripping, one for burning.

    If you download games, you can use the 2nd part.

    Wad Manager is operated off of the SD card. Homebrew Channel is installed / operated in your Wii and is used to access the SD card filled with apps.

    StarFall is accessed from the SD card, then installed / operated in your Wii. Again, you use the Homebrew Channel to get to it.

    You place the .Wad files onto the SD card also. The Wads are installed via Wad Manager. Again, Wad Manager is launched from the Homebrew Channel.

    The .Wad files (and all other needed files) are downloaded from the net onto your PC. From the PC, they're placed onto the SD card via USB reader. Take the SD from the PC, then insert it into the Wii.

    I wouldn't sweat it. Starting out is a bit rough because of all of the terminology. If it makes you feel better, I learned all of this stuff about 3 weeks ago, tops.

    @ admiral victorinox pls dont be too emotional i meant no harm. its just i wanted a noob guide as well because like i said im starting from scratch meaning all terminologies and other stuffs really ticks me off. i can easily read tutorial but my point is how can i understand it if i dont really know what it meant? again i apologize if i did hurt your feeling but like i said i meant no harm im just a noob trying to sort things out and learn from scratch. and luckily Enine here gives a guide that my ideals can relate to. ofcourse i needed to learn some terminologies and basics before i plunge to doing anything. besides following tutorials with lots of terminologies is like giving a kid who isnt familiar with the basics of math and let him solve problems with variables on it. again i meant no harm and if i did hurt you then im sorry dont worry youve been kind helping me thanks!

    @admiral victorinox hey all is well right? no need to push such a small argument over and over as i said i meant no harm and i dont have any intention to argue to any of you guys here. pls respect my decisions since ive learn and bothered Enine and not you. also sorry without the said "terminologies" how do i search for a tutorials? thats why i posted and luckily someone helped. is it that hard to comprehend? just respect my decisions ayt? i dont wanna start anything bad here. since i came here to learn and not to insult people nor degrade them. again i meant no harm just we dont have to make small things bigger coz of misunderstanding dont worry ill use your tutorials too. now that i kinda understand some of the terminologies. anyways hope you understand my feelings as well cheers

    Determine the firmware version on your machine. (Wii dashboard >> Wii Button >> Settings >> in there)

    I'd look into the downgrading. Again, use the guide in my signature to get the job done.

    It's everything you need.
