    Howdy

    Hey there. I'm new to this community but no noobie to modding. I got pretty excited when I saw the new sleek and sexy black Wii and I plan on going to pick one up tomorrow. I was reading some noobie forum posts and one of them mentioned coming here and introducing myself, so.... "HI".... any tips or general steering in any direction would be greatly appreciated!

    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

    This guide works for all wii's



    And Bluphant's noobs guide - Basic introduction to wii hacking

    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!
    Checkout Peire's
    Wii Game Manager Guide


    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

    Wiihacks also has an IRC chat room so you can get live help and assistance from staff and other

    members -
    IRC welcome and rules

    WELCOME!


    About this sexy new black Wii, Your referring to the choked up restricted Wii in the bundle, huh?

    That thing does seem fun to mod because it doesn't have GCN ports and has some other limitation set on it. I'm really curious about it.
    Can't wait to see what you have and I hope to see you upload a teardown on it to see if it has potential.

    Do that and I also want to see it on HaD.

    EDIT: That thing would be lame for Brawl and any other games compatible with the GCN controller.
    I'm also curious if it shipped with a special system menu. Get us a nand dump if you could, please!

    Thanks for all the advice. I had this thing modded within an hour of purchasing it and running all my backups fine on USBloader GX. I honestly didn't know about the limitations when I bought it and now my buddy is freaking out since he uses the Wavebird for SSBB lol.

    edit: and if you are still curious about the nand just say so.
