    Hello and Welcome to


    You have just joined the best Nintendo Wii modding community there is!!

    Before you start, we ask that you please read the Forum Rules and try your best to follow them.
    There are a few things in there that you really need to know prior to making any posts, so please take a few minutes to read them!

    Now that you understand the basics of how the forum works, it is time to get to modding!

    Guide: Softmod ANY Wii



    Already modded? In need of an update? Follow another mod guide from somewhere else and didn't have the best of luck?
    The Softmod ANY Wii guide has you covered. It is regularly updated and tested by the staff here at WiiHacks.
    And YES, using this guide you can indeed Softmod ANY Wii!

    "So what the heck is this IOS, cIOS, blah blah stuff? I don't understand a word of it!" - Sound like you?
    Take a look at Bluphants guide Thinking about hacking a wii? Start here! [A basic introduction to Wii hacking].

    So, now that you have your Wii modded, its time to start backing up those discs!
    First, please make note that your Wii will not be able to play burned discs if it was made after mid 2009.
    If you have a Wii newer than that, you will only be able to load games from a USB Hard Drive or Flash Drive (we highly recommend USB loading anyways ).
    Before you decide to go spend that hard earned cash on a new USB drive, be sure to take a look at our USB Compatibility List.

    Now that you have a compatible drive, take a look at Pob3008's [Guide] Fat32.
    It will instruct you on how to properly set up your new drive and how to put your games on it!

    YAY!!! So now you have your games on your new drive!
    You are playing like crazy, then you decide to play a game that you haven't played since modding.
    Oh NO!!! It wont work!!!
    Have no fear! BMarlo is here! And so is his Ultimate List of Troublesome Games and their Solutions!

    There are many other threads and guides around the site that give a ton of useful info.
    Chances are most questions you have already have been answered at some point!
    Do some searching and reading to find what you are looking for. In fact we even have a guide for that! Emuhack's [GUIDE] Ultimate Searching Tool [Guide].

    A few other helpful links!
    Playing Gamecube Backups From Disc - only for if your Wii can read burned discs!
    Dios Mios Lite - for playing Gamecube backups from SD!
    Wii Modchip Users Go Here!!!

    WiiHacks also has an IRC, so you can chat with members and staff! Take a look at the guide Connecting to WiiHacks IRC

    A few last things: If someone helps you, it would be nice of you to click the little Thanks button below their post. Its always nice to know that giving help is appreciated! Also, if we have helped you and you are able to, please consider giving a small Donation to the site to help keep us up and running! In return we will add a donator banner under your username and also give you special access to a donator's only forum!

    Again, Welcome to the best Wii modding community there is!!!

    i have one of the new wii, with a new wii remote and im having a problem on this step:
    Part 1- Wad Installs
    NOTE: If a wad fails to install, try to install that wad again. If the
    wad still fails, press B to go back to the main menu, select reload ios, reload ios236, then try to
    install the wad that is giving you trouble again. DO NOT PROCEED TO THE NEXT STEP UNTIL
    ALL WADS INSTALL

    Start HBC, press [HOME], Launch Bootmii
    Multi-Mod Manager Starts (via cboot2)

    Never Uninstall IOS, or SM you will brick your wii
    Never Uninstall IOS, or SM you will brick your wii

    Select "WAD Manager" - Press A
    Press (1) to "Install all Wads" - Press A
    30 wads should install without error
    "Press any button to continue"

    When ever i enter Multi-Mod Manager my remote shuts down and i cant get it to come back on, i tried resync it but no go... What can i do???

    I know at the beginning of that guide (
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-faqs-guides-tutorials-only/96886-guide-softmod-any-wii.html) there is a link stating that some of the new wii motes would not work... and they had this link (http://www.wiihacks.com/general-home...t-working.html) which states:

    The black Wii bundled with New Super Mario Bros. Wii comes with an
    incompatible Wii remote.

    So what can i do is there a fix for this??
