    Back for more.

    Hi all,
    Been away a while. Just got back to UK after spending 8 months in Florida working (holiday)? Can't wait to go back.
    Anyways. Have successfully soft modded several Wii's in the past.
    The first 1 i ever did was a few years ago, which is my Wii. Due to the fact of working away all the time i have not updated it in a while.
    I'm looking to update it as some of the newer games coming out wont play on me usb hdd. It's been that long i can't even remember what guide i used for the original softmod.
    Would i be right in saying i should start from scratch and do a complete reinstall rather than search for the original guide and update from there. Myself i feel safer doing a reinstall.
    Also the kids want to get a little more from the Wii. i.e: browse the internet, watch dvd movies, play Wiiware and some old school ps1 games.
    Can someone with more experience than me help me out with options and links for this and to which softmod option i should do.

    Nice to be back and have a bit of time to look around forum again.




    Any help would be great.

    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

    Other useful guides -


    Ultimate Wiihacks index

    Wiihacks guides - The Authors Index
