    Hello and welcome to


    Thank you for joining the best Nintendo Wii modding community there is. Please take time to read the Forum Rules and follow them, this will make your experience here a lot more enjoyable.

    We are here to help you with any problems you might have with your modding experience. But please remember to search and research for your problem before posting. Most of the time someone will have the same problem and a solution has been posted already. For help with searching tips you can look at the [GUIDE] Ultimate Searching Tool [Guide]


    Now if you want the best guide, in my opinion, to softmod your Wii. Follow the Softmod any Wii Guide, you can also use this guide to update your old softmod.

    But before you do have a look at Thinking about hacking a wii? Start here! [A basic introduction to Wii hacking]. This will give you a better understanding of how things work in your Wii.

    After you get your console sorted, you will need to find a way to backup your games. The best way is to copy them to an external hard drive or usb flash drive. You can copy them to DVD -r's, but only if your Wii's disc drive is old enough to be capable of reading them. Wii's made after Sept. of 2009 are not able to play backups from disc. You can check the Wii Drive Chip Database to see if yours will play DVD -r's.

    BEFORE GETTING A USB DRIVE CHECK THE USB COMPATIBILITY LIST.

    The recommended usb drive setup is fat32. Although, you can still use NTFS or WBFS loading.

    IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE WITH A PARTICULAR GAME, CHECK THE ULTIMATE LIST OF TROUBLESOME GAMES, TO FIND A FIX FOR IT.


    IF YOU HAVE AN ERROR, CHECK THE ERROR INDEX

    WiiHacks also has a IRC Chatroom! So you can talk live to members and staff!

    First read the IRC Welcome & Rules

    All modchip users go to the modchip section.

    Also if someone helps you, it is greatly appreciated if you click the thanks button.
    You can also show your support to help us keep helping users, by making a small donation.

    There are many more guides for homebrew and Wii related fun. Also we have sections for other game systems for those of us that just can't get enough of any one console. I personally have multiple console and handheld game systems. So have fun browsing the site.

    I bought the kids a wii a while back, know nothing about them in fact it sat in the corner gathering dust because the kids know less than me lol but i like to learn new stuff as i go along, i can mess with most electronic stuff ipads, androids, but the wii was the first one that has me stumped softmodding it seems is the easier of the options for it, so please bear with me as i may ask silly newbie questions after i have read till my brain explodes but i promise not to be too much of a pain "got a big hammer to fix it if i get lost"
