Wii Black V4.2E
First of all, sorry if this is the wrong forum, but I think I need this HomeBrew channel for the most of the things I want.
I'm thinking already a long time of putting some mods on my Wii so I can watch movies with it and maybe play games I download from the internet and then burn to disc or via USB. I lost my interest in it because I thought it was so damn hard to do.
Lately I had interests again in hacking my Wii but I think I will have some problems since it's a black Wii (bought around november 2009) and it's updated to V4.2E.
I really don't wanne brick my Wii because it's price is high enough to just brake it down. So I wanted to ask some questions because I don't really find satisfaction with the answers I find so:
Is it possible to watch DVD's on a black Wii with V4.2E ?
How can I easy play downloaded games from the internet on rather SD, USB or DVD ? Which one is the easiest?
If someone has some other tips for me, plz give them
Black wiis can not load games via disc, only usb hdd. The guide for softmodding 4.2 is in my signature. Look up a program called mplayer. I've never used it (since I have a dvd player, lol. Don't realy see the point) You wouldn't be able to load burnt dvd's from it but it might have hdd support. (Anyone who's used this feel free to step in here.) As far as softmodding and games go that will get you started at least. Welcome to the site.
Welcome to the community! Members of the community are extremely helpful, and there is information throughout the site on just about every issue you could imagine. Make sure you read ShadowSonic2's Wiihacks Ultimate Index. Here are a few things to help you get going:
1) Read the Rules of the site. They are important and there are consequences to ignoring the rules, not that you would do anything like that.
2) Read the Tutorials and Guides.
3) SEARCH for questions you may have before starting a new thread. If you would like to narrow your search, choose the option on the search page that says "Search Titles Only."
4) The advice on this site is all free, but it does cost money to operate. If you're able it would be greatly appreciated if you DONATE.
It is NOT advised that you update to system menu 4.2 at the moment. Although it can still be modded, it's only reason for existing was to eliminate the homebrew channel.
If you have not softmodded yet, there's an excellent guide by dogeggs for system menu 3.1-4.1 FOUND HERE
And a wonderful guide by messie for system menu 4.2 FOUND HERE
Any other problems can usually easily be found by searching.
