    Hey! New to Modding Wii -- Not so New Otherwise

    Hey, everyone. I've been modding gaming systems for quite some time, including an N64, PSP, DS(not really modding, I guess), Xbox 360, and PS3. I bought a Wii about three years ago, but sold it soon after. I was trying to sell my Xbox 360 on Craigslist, and had a guy offer a soft modded Wii with cash.

    It seems to be a great deal! So far, I know a few things and don't know very many more. I know I've got a D2 drive, so I can play from discs. He even included a few burnt games, but he had children and every disc he gave me was unbelievably scratched.

    Okay, so I've actually got a question to start. I've looked around at different stickied topics and gathered a little bit of information about my Wii. I'm not confident in other people's ability to mod software, so I want to make sure everything's okay, and I'm not facing an impending brick.

    I found out that I'm running 4.1u. Is that preferred, or is there a reason to go to 4.2? I'm interested in Gamecube/Wii backups, media playing, possible running emulators if possible(for backups of course). I was wondering what emulators are available. Is there somewhere I can be pointed to for the download of actual homebrew apps?

    Hello
    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 Compatibility list

    How to set your drive up -
    Loading and Playing Wii Backup Games from USB HDD


    Once your HDD is setup and ready to go, you will need a program to manage your games!

    I was able to answer a few questions with just a bit of looking around. However, since I'm not the one who modded the Wii in the first place, I'm unsure of how well it was done, and if I've got anything that is incompatible with what's being used now. I've included the list of IOS on the Wii. Thanks in advance to anyone willing to look through it.

    Will do. I just figured I'd add another post to this topic rather than making a what has to be very common and annoying topic. Haha. Thanks for looking at it!
