Hello dear reader of this post!
My name is Rob aka TheGuyver.
About a year ago I tried to softmod my Wii via Youtube. I know, I read on this site already that it probably wasn't the best idea, but what did I know. I failed offcourse, and although my Wii wasn't bricked, I wasn't succesfull either. I dedcided to give up, because I still could play my Wii games and didn't want to take unnecessary risks. Better no back-ups then no Wii
Anyway, here I am a year later giving it another try. The problem is, I have some stuff installed on my Wii already and I really don't know if it's neccassery to delete it, and if so, how. But that is for another post/thread. This is just a quick introduction, so Hello guys, I am looking forward for yout help
and welcome to
Thank you for becoming a member of the best wii modding site around!
First off you need to read the Site rules and try your best to abide by them.
Now we know the rules its time to find the right guide for modding your wii, I recommend the
The Softmod Any Wii Guide by Mauifrog
There are also other guides which you can find in the Guides and tutorials section
Once you have completed the guide you need to ascertain if your wii is capable of playing backups via the disc drive or whether you need to be usb loading.
Wii's post 2009 generally cannot play backups via the disc drive and have to use usb loading.
I recommend usb loading anyway as you can add an remove your games easily and there is no wear and tear on your disc drive and no messing about with discs etc.
What you will need to know -
What drives are compatible - Usb Compatability list
How to set your drive up - Loading and Playing Wii Backup Games from USB HDD
Now your set up and ready to go, but you run in to a problem with one of your game backups -
List of problematic games and the solutions
Now if you're a modchip user you need to get over to the Modchip Section
