Hello from the dark side to all.
I'm new to the crew but I look forward to hanging out a lot on this site. I have been lurking in the shadows for a while and reading a lot of the posts, and it is a big help. I wish I knew about this site before I started modding my Wii (live and learn). So far I have gotten as far as getting the Homebrew Chanel up and running, but like some others with version 4.2U I cant get the back up loader to work. So I think I found what I need to do but I will see. So I just want to say thanks to all the devoted people that keep this site rocking with all that great info.

Hello 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 tutorial for softmodding 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.net/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 , there are tutorials to help you connect using either ChatZilla or mIRC.
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.
Enjoy your stay with us.
