My name is Brian. I here to learn about hacking the Wii and decide if I am able to do it. My primary reasons for hacking is that I would like to buy and play some of the recent Japanese games that we aren't getting in the United States. I would also like to run games I already have from an SD card or hard drive. I still want to retain the ability to purchase from the online Wii Shop. Any reason for hacking beyond those are over my head right now. I don't know any other reasons I would want to do it.
My hacking experience consists of loading custom firmwares on the first and second revision PSP. The latter hack was almost automated as it got so easy to do by then. So obviously I'm a little wary of taking on this challenge. I certainly can't afford to buy a new Wii if I mess it up. I've already bought three of them. (long story) If I'm going to do this, it needs to be done right. Hopefully I will find the knowledge, understanding, and encouragement here to do so.
A little about me personally; I'm just your average geek. I like anime, videogames, sci-fi, movies, tv, comics, remote control cars, skaterboarding, and tons of other hobbies. I make electronic music (deep house, and drum and bass mostly) and have been for a very long time. My music name is Synaptic Flow. I DJ also.
Most of my free time is spent, hanging out with friends, surfing the internet, watching movies, or playing videogames.
I hope I meet a few cool people here.
