hello -- from california
Hi all I stumbled upon this site recently looking to for answers to some wii tuning questions. I have had my wii since launch and currently it is 3.2u, but have found that the wii doesn't have TOO many games that appeal to me besides the big ones such as mario galaxy, zelda, smash bros... etc. I was more into the VC games and when news broke of a homebrew, I took the chance and started immediately installing some VC games. Fast forward to recent times, I started playing my wii again and wanted to buy animal crossing but not lose my wads. So i needed to learn more about tuning and here I am. I have done a lot of reading and I now need to get an external HD if I wanna play new games without buying them.. sounds great. Also I learned I need a bigger sd card to use bootmii because mine is only 256mb... LOL. Anyway, I hope to learn more about IOS#s and new things I can do with my launch wii. Hoping to learn a lot from this site,it looks very helpful!
Currently I am learning how to install IOSs so I can play newer games without updating my system menu and also read from USB. Thanks!!

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.
