    Howdy!

    Hello everyone,

    I am in the process of learning about the process of soft modding my newly purchased Wii. I know I am a little late to the game as this system has already been superseded by the new one.

    I am an avid PC gamer but have been playing consoles since the days of Atari 2600. After learning about emulation, I have done a lot of research over the years and became more experienced in that aspect. With the modding concept, I have a lot to learn but I myself have successfully modified my Xbox 1 with a solder-less chip, soft modded my PS2 and replaced the OS on 3 Android phones as well. Also I have my PS1 with modchip (a friend did the mod) and still have my trusty Gameboy Advance and flash cart for homebrew.

    As I stated before, I finally bought a refurbished older black Wii yesterday (4.3u) and thought I would learn about soft modding before I get started using it, or do something that can not be undone. I have set it up, except for access to the internet, and have only played 3 games (that did not show they needed updating).

    I have some pre-modding questions that I am still searching for, but will continue to search before I ask for assistance.

    Thanks so much for having this wonderful resource for us noobs and reading my long intro post

    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!

    Looking to Softmod the Virtual Wii on your Wii-U? Look here: Guide: vWii Softmod!

    "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 - for playing Gamecube backups from HDD!

    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!
