New guy here
I am so glad I found this site today. I am new to all this kind of stuff, but I need to learn it. With my son's leukemia, we don't have the money to go out and buy a lot of games. So, I am learning how to use coverloader and an external hard drive, so he can play games. He can't do much else with having chemo because it makes him weak.
Anyhow, I'm glad to be here and I hope I learn a lot from you all. Thank you!:)
Hello and welcome to the wiihacks community.
I know you are anxious to get started; but, there are a few items to cover before you post your questions or start doing anything to your Wii. If you intend to make or have made software-based modifications (softmod) of your Wii, including installation of the Homebrew Channel, DO NOT ACCEPT THE LATEST NINTENDO UPDATE. DO NOT UPDATE TO SYSTEM MENU VERSION 4.2.
Make sure you read the rules of this site. There are a number of tutorials and guides available to assist you. Make sure to either look through the tutorials or use the search function before asking questions. While the moderators, staff, and members of this community are willing to help you, some effort on your part to read, research, and follow the rules is expected. To get the best response to your question(s), post in the associated forum areas. This is very important as inappropriate posting could get you restricted to the reading room or even banned. If, after looking at the tutorials and trying to search, you still need help or just want to post a very basic type of question, go to the http://www.wiihacks.com/wiihacks-newbie-corner/.
If this site and our members have provided substantive help, you can Donate to the forum and get a nice banner under your name and gain access to the donator forums.
I hope these two guides are of help to you: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...g-wii-faq.html

Thank you very much for your help and direction. I really appreciate!
One thing you should do after installing the Homebrew Channel is to also install the Homebrew Browser from WiiBrew. The Homebrew Browser will allow you to directly download emulators, utilities, and more importantly Homebrew games.
