    Ca Hello from Canada

    Hey everyone. Just found this site yesterday and have been reading a lot of stuff on soft modding my Wii. I must admit I'm a bit apprehensive about doing it. I consider myself very computer literate, however am a bit worried about bricking my Wii. I have read, re-read and re-read mauifrog's guide and am quite confident I can do it. Any other advice would be greatly appreciated. My serial number is an LU640 so I understand I wont be able to use boot2, Is that correct? Anyways guys/gals it's nice to meet you all. Hope you all are having warmer weather than I am here in Alberta, Canada and Happy New Year.

    Shawn

    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.
    Also You need to realise that this site is here to help you make the most out of your Wii and not to help people with piracy!


    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 -


    Bmarlo's Ultimate List of problematic games and the solutions



    Peire's Ultimate guide to music and dance games




    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

    I don't think anyone gets in their first rodeo without some degree of apprehension.

    I hear ya offgriffin. In all reality though, how likely is it that I would brick my Wii? I only plan on soft modding my Wii so I can play all the backups I have made of my kids games. I don't plan on installing anymore software or apps than I absolutely need.

    Take a little time and read through the thread. you will see ppl of all walks of life and levels of intelligence. See the kinds of questions they ask and their ability ( or lack thereof) to understand what advice is given.

    Now look and see how often you see someone say "oh crap, i just bricked my wii console".
