    Just saying Hi, think I'll learn a lot here.

    Hi Guys and Gals, had my wii about 18 months and now its out of warranty have decided to softmod it, I'll be doing a lot of reading here before doing anything though, pretty scared that I'll brick it.

    Haven't modded anything since the PS2 when I used Swap Magic, and the PS1 when I had a cartridge that plugged in the back.....LOL.

    Thanks in advance for any help I get.

    Glenn

    Hello Glenn and welcome to the wiihacks community.

    I know you are anxious to get started; but, there are a few items to cover before you post your questions or start doing anything to your Wii.


    Make sure you read the rules of this site. There are a number of tutorials and guides available to assist you. Many of our new members find the tutorials for softmodding any 3.1-4.1 Wii and any 4.2 Wii particularly useful. Make sure to either look through the site tutorials and guides or use the search function before asking questions. While the moderators, staff, and members of this community are willing to help you, some effort on your part to read, research, and follow the rules is expected. To get the best response to your question(s), post in the associated forum areas. This is very important as inappropriate posting could get you restricted to the reading room or even banned. If, after looking at the tutorials and trying to search, you still need help or just want to post a very basic type of question, go to the http://www.wiihacks.com/wiihacks-newbie-corner/.

    Wiihacks also has a chat room on irc://irc.uicn/wiihacks. After reading the iRC rules, please feel free to join in the light-hearted chats and activities. While any iRC client can connect to #wiihacks on the UICN, ChatZilla, for those with Mozilla’s Firefox browser, is easy to install and use.


    If this site and our members have provided substantive help, you can Donate to the forum and get a nice banner under your name and gain access to the donator forums.

    I hope this introductory guide is helpful: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...g-wii-faq.html. Enjoy your stay with us.

    Well, found out I'd updated to 4.2 about 2 weeks ago and thought 'bummer', read Messie's guide and reread,downloaded all the files needed, followed the guide and voila, backups are now being played. Much respect and thanks to all here.

    Just one thing, I couldn't back up the NAND as the Power,Reset and Eject buttons wouldn't move the cursor. Was I doing something wrong or do I need a Gamecube controller?

    Yes, when bootmii can install as boot2, then the console buttons work. If bootmii can only be installed as IOS, a GameCube controller is needed to navigate the bootmii menu.

    Bootmii did install as boot2, but the console buttons only carried out their normal functions. Oh well I think I'll get a Gamecube controller anyway

    The 4.2 update actually removes boot2, you might want to verify it loads when you start your Wii. Insert SD card with the bootmii files in place to be sure. You may need to rely on it at some point in the future. If you softmodded since updating to 4.2 then you might have it in place.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
