Hi I'm new to wiihacks...just got my Wii last december (I know took me long enuf)
Anyways i was blown away when i found out that with the Wii there's more than meets the eye!!
So i began my adventure to HACK my WII..
I keep running into issues along the way..I know i'm no hacking expert and that you're not supposed to sail uncharted waters without some guidance..but i never was someone who was held back by ignorance...so i decided to move forward.
A few dead ends i reached: I followed the "complete guide to hack wii 4.2" (which is the wii version i have by the way) but couldn't get a) USB LOADER to play games off HDD (WD my passport) b) couldn't get mplayer to play DVDs
There comes a time in a man's life when he just has to stop and ask for directions...for me that time has come!!
I'm sorry but i have to say the words that no man would ever willingly say in public, but i'm desperate:
"I AM LOST"
any help would be truly appreciated
Hi and welcome to WiiHacks pickie
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.
Here is the site index wiihacks ultimate index written by ShadowSonic2
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.
