    Hello

    Hello I am just over here looking for the best most failsafe solution for someone with kids to mod his console because I know as with anything it carries a risk but with having kids there is the danger of his Wii becoming bricked if his console is fiddled with in someway. Though I am unfamiliar with the Wii and have never owned one I am just trying to help out so I am hoping I can find it.

    Follow our guides; make sure you install Priiloader and block disc/internet updates. WiiJohn even has a guide that boots your Wii straight to a backup loader and bypassing the System Menu (another great kid-proof trick).

    Hello and welcome to

    You joined the right site to learn everything about Wii modding and hacking.

    General Warnings: Do not update to 4.3! - Do not listen to youtube hacking tutorials - Do not use Pimp My Wii - Get a NAND backup - Install Priiloader - Use the search function!

    There are just a few things you should keep in mind. Be sure that you read the forum rules and understand them. Any discussion about pirated material or cheating will be shut down. Be sure to post in the correct forum section - best suiting the post's content.


    Searching and Posting

    Before posting it is always good to check if the question has been answered already, the chances are very high. Just give the searchbar a shot - further infos in the Ultimate Searching Guide by emuhack. Keep in mind you can also search within the thread your are currently reading, look above the posts and find "Search Thread" in the grey bar.

    Maybe you want to try out this as well:
    Just place your query before or behind "site:wiihacks.com".

    The Recommended Tutorials and Guides section will be your main source for information.

    You might also want to check out the Ultimate Wiihacks Index, the Author Index and the Wii Softmodding - Basics and Beyond to get along the site and get to know some hacking terminology etc .

    When you decide to post in the forum, make sure you are posting in the appropriate section of the forum and that you have searched and found no solution. Describe your problem in detail and what you have done before the error occured, provide a syscheck.


    Your Wii


    Clearly you want to know what is inside your Wii. Track down the Wii's serial No. (sticker on the console's back) and just find it out!

    If you got a DVD drive with one of the newer D3-v2 or D4 chips you won't be able to play any non retail wii or gc game disc (game backup or movie dvd). All black/red and recently bought Wiis will have one of those chips.
    You got one? Go for a softmodding USB loading route.

    Go to your wii settings menu and look in the upper right corner and find out which system menu version you currently got installed on your wii. On that you decide which softmod guide to use and hack your wii.


    Softmod Guides

    To initially softmod your Wii use one of the following softmod guides. Just choose the guide which you understand the most. If you want to start over and want to get rid of a previous installation, just install new things on top of old. There is no need to delete everything or virginizing your wii. Make sure you install Bootmii get a NAND backup. Install Priiloader and block disc and online updates.





    To load your game backups from a USB hard drive follow the:





    Modchip Users

    There is also a Wii Modchips Section.

    Thank you very much for pointing me in the right direction and I'm guessing that I just need to find out his version number first taking it one step at a time. I'm also guessing that he'd be able to rip backed-up discs to a USB hard drive and they would run alright
