I decided to softmod the wii and in my search for a well laid out tutorial I came across this site. Used mauifrog’s guide which was impressively detailed and everything went as planned. After looking through the FAQ’s is still have a couple of questions but I will utilize the appropriate forums. Anyways, great site and glad to be a part of it.
I am Bliepo and I am here to welcome you to WiiHacks! It is always nice to see a new member such as yourself. Good that you managed to softmod your wii!
First of all, please read the Forum Rules and Brick Prevention- Things you should never do. Please do your best to follow them, or you might be corrupted by the dark side ;)
To help new members find their way, we have a very nice index, the Ultimate Wiihacks Index. You can also take a look at our Hot Topics !!!! forum, which has links to the latest top guides on the forum! If you still can't find what you are looking for, you can always use the search function. Or try using Google. Just add "site: wiihacks.com" to the end, and Google will help you find it on wiihacks.
If you want to start softmodding your wii, I recommend Guide: Softmod ANY wii. After that, you can use USB HDD back-up loading. We have a FAT 32 guide, a NTFS guide and a WBFS guide. If you need a guide on a WBFS manager, please read the [Guide]Wii Game Manager. If you are using linux, please take a look at the Wiihacks Linux Guide - softmodding using Linux and ext2/ext3/ext4 USB loading.
We also have some very cool things here, like Peire's GFX Shop and the Free Signature Give away.
You can also join IRC and chat live with members and staff (IRC Welcome & Rules).
