Hello from dismal Ipswich, UK!
Hi guys and girls. I'm here for two reasons; Firstly, I miss the whole forum community feel that I've had with other forums over recent years. Secondly, I'm reading with great interest about soft modding my Wii. The thing I like about my PC is the ability to have my games stored on my HDD so I can access them without having to get up and swap a disc over in the optical drive. The first thing I do when I buy a PC game is patch it up and then find a 'no CD' hack for it, so I don't have to bother with the disc again until I inevitably reinstall Windows every 6 months or so. Anyway, enough chitter chatter. All I was saying was 'Hi'. I guess I got carried away, but it beats getting on with my work .
Hi and welcome to WiiHacks Mikey
If you need advice or help for anything Wii related you have joined the right site, whether its hard or soft modded.
Don’t be shy, ask if you are stuck, just don’t expect other people to do all the work for you.
Before you start anything, make sure you read the rules go over the tutorials, and most importantly, search before asking questions.
Make sure you post in the correct areas of the forums.

If you are starting from scratch, new 3.1-4.1 written by Dogeggs
If you already have Homebrew, upgrade to 4.1 written by Dogeggs
Don’t update to 4.2, but if you are already on 4.2, complete 4.2 guide written by Messie
2009 Wii Serial numbers after LU3884XXXX and LEH2676XXXX have probably got the new D3-2 chip that prevents playing backup DVD's. They can still use original discs and USB loaders.
And please do donate to the forum if you are able so we can go on helping the Wii community.
I hope you have a great time here at WiiHacks, and increase your knowledge of all things Wii.
Thanks for the welcome. I'm looking forward to having a go at modding my wii, since I've never modded a console before. Rest assured any questions will be posted in the correct place after extensive researching through the existing posts .
