    Hi!

    Been a while. Introduced myself before but haven't been on in a while. Have two kids and a wii with issues we might get rid of (so we can get a new one). Thought I'd read up on some stuff and ask questions before doing anything to the wii that we already have.

    Hope everyone is having a great end of spring/beginning of summer!

    Welcome back kemari7! A lot has changed in the modding scene since you signed up. Hopefully we can help you get that old Wii back up and running!

    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 hope so! I have a broken SD card slot. Card won't stay/catch and I think a piece broken off inside it. Ordering the tri-wing screwdrivers and a replacement card slot but reading up on how to disassemble. I love this site, and if we decide to keep this and get another, I'll def. be using the site tutorials to help me mod the new one.

    If you have any advice/links to point me in the direction of sd card slot replacements, I'd totally appreciate it. Found a few on here, but the more, the better. I like to be fully educated on this kind of stuff (bricked a wii once because I didn't read up enough on things!).

    Actually I do know someone who may be able to help you out with that! I will try to get ahold of him to see if he can shoot you a PM or write up a quick tutorial. No promises, but worth a try
