Great place to be
This is the first Forum i ever really joined. I have been to and read several different forums, but none as great as WiiHacks.com. Just a little Background about myself I am American Born. I served in the US Air Force as a network engineer, and have always had a passion for games! Always considered myself a hacker, nothing to great just some simple MySQL injection stuff. I have hacked Several PSP's before and even jail broke an Iphone before. I own a PS3, PSP, Wii(of course), and a PC (obviously). Not sure what else to say except thank you everyone who made this site possible!
Hello militaryrobb and welcome to the WiiHacks community. Thank you for your service and I hope you enjoy exploring the site resources and meeting our members.
You have joined the world’s largest Wii modding and forum community. To help you access the useful and relevant information available on this site, it is strongly recommended that you first look at this special site index: Wiihacks Ultimate Index. Another guide to the site, that is intended for new members, is HERE. Do Not Update the System Menu on your Wii to 4.3; if you have already done so, please see links in this post under current hot topics.
The WiiHacks membership is a diverse and global community. To ensure a pleasant and safe environment for all, please make sure you read and follow the Rules of this site as they are indeed enforced here. There are a number of tutorials and guides available to assist you with your Wii-related issues. If you have an interest in hard-modding or your Wii already has a chip, check out the Modchip Forum. Many of our new members find the tutorials for softmodding any 3.1-4.1 Wii and any 4.2 Wii or the full hacking guide for 4.2 Wiis particularly useful. If you will be using an external USB hard disk drive to load and play backups of your Wii games after softmodding your Wii, go HERE.
Make sure to use the search function before asking questions. There is a very helpful guide to optimally searching this site HERE. 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 correct forum areas. Inappropriate posting (wrong area, double posting, and bumping threads in < 24hours) 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, try your luck in the Newbie discussions forum.
