Best WII Mods to use???
Found this site today after trying to research how to fix the buzzing noise on the wii cd drive and figured when i fix it i may try to mod it. I have been looking through the threads trying to figure out all the lingo and different soft mods, chips, brands, versions, etc. i am more confused now.
i am trying to find what is the easiest and best mod for the wii. i want to be able to play online and not have to do much updating to it once it is installed. i would like to be able to watch dvd's and play copies of my games.
i saw i video of the wii key i believe on utube and it looked easy to install since it is solderless. i just didnt know if you can play online with copied games or if there are better mods out there.
Use this guide for wii softmod from version 3.1 to 4.1
Use this guide for wii softmod from version 4.2
Use this guide and these files to run games from usb disk and get rid of the buzzing noise :)
thx. i have been reading and it looks like softmod is the way to go so far. is this correct? are there any benefits to a chip? also i have 3.4u on my wii. is it better to upgrade it first or just use what i have.
I think softmod is brilliant, it took me 2 hours (lot of reading and double and tripple chekking).
If you brick youre wii a chip wil give you more chance to recover, as far as i know you can install the chip post-brick also. [memorise the guide and you wont brick]
If you upgrade you will go to 4.2 and as far as i know its trickier to mod a 4.2 so stick with 3.4 and if you REALLY want to (not needed at all) you can use the wankiko 4.1 updater after you modded with the Doggeggs guide.
Ps dont skip NAND backup and install priiloader it helps when you brick now or in the future
i believe some setting got changed on my router so my wii will no longer find it. not sure why i need to figure this out as well. is it possible to install all of this without having the wii online?
Are you gonna need to update to 4.1? You will want to do that if you are on 3.1, 3.3 or 3.4.
You're going to need to be online for the update to 4.1 - I'm pretty sure that if you try to update before you hack that you will end up with v4.2u and you don't want to go beyond 4.1u being that 4.2u is designed to block Homebrew (More headache to hack) - Everything will work on your 3.4 but 4.1 allows the wii to read SDHC cards

Also you don't need to start 3 or 4 seperate threads. It makes it alot more confusing as each thread has relevant information we cannot see at a glimpse
