    Now I can't play new game and I have done anything as the other forum instruction and It has been haft brick!

    Please help me!
    I don't know your exact issue, but if you can, follow my softmod guide and your issue should be fixed.

    No, you will get the error 003 brick. Just follow the guide and you'll have everything you need and be at 4.1.

    Thanks for the guide. I'm considering purchasing a wii and don't know whether to go for this or not, does seem tempting.

    1) Where is the best place to get 'backup copies' of the games you already own

    2) I don't have any experience with the wii really. Once you softmod your wii can you never make it legit again or can you go back without bricking. Are these things easy to do by mistake or does it take a lot of effort and stupidity to do them:

    Never uninstall your system menu
    Never uninstall your system menu ios
    Never uninstall any ios less the 200.
    Remove Stubbed System IOS files
    Never install cIOSCORP
    Never Update online
    Never update from disk

    3) As my wii will be new it will have os 4.3 i presume. Would I be better waiting until a better solution than smash stack is created? (how long do they seem to take roughly - I understand 4.2 was similar before it got solved)? Or should I just buy super smash brothers and use that method?

    4) I use mac osx leopard - will everything work the same for completing all of the mod tasks? The software you get from here http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html etc.?

    5) Do I just need the wii, my mac, a flashcard, and a flashcard reader? Then a fat 32 drive to play games off?

    6) Why do people hardmod their wiis - go to the expense and hassle - what are the advantages?

    Thanks First post!

    2) I don't have any experience with the wii really. Once you softmod your wii can you never make it legit again or can you go back without bricking. Are these things easy to do by mistake or does it take a lot of effort and stupidity to do them: YES. You can remove the softmod following a guide on here but it can be dangerous and what ever you do there will always be traces.

    Never uninstall your system menu
    Never uninstall your system menu ios
    Never uninstall any ios less the 200.
    Remove Stubbed System IOS files
    Never install cIOSCORP
    Never Update online
    Never update from disk

    3) As my wii will be new it will have os 4.3 i presume. Would I be better waiting until a better solution than smash stack is created? (how long do they seem to take roughly - I understand 4.2 was similar before it got solved)? Or should I just buy super smash brothers and use that method? How longs a piece of string? Buy/Borrow/Rent - You can always sell the game on...

    4) I use mac osx leopard - will everything work the same for completing all of the mod tasks? The software you get from here http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html etc.? You should be fine... Read the guide it covers any known issues that there are for mac.

    5) Do I just need the wii, my mac, a flashcard, and a flashcard reader? Then a fat 32 drive to play games off?
    YES

    6) Why do people hardmod their wiis - go to the expense and hassle - what are the advantages?Personal preference.Hard modding a newer wii would be useless. If you want to hardmod then a wode is a good option because you don't have to open the wii and it emulates the wii. Softmod = Free.

    Great, thanks very much for your help. Looks like i'm gonna go for the soft option Can you still go online and download virtual games from the nintendo store and can you undo the mod easily at any time if you like without problems?

    Was just thinking a fat32 drives max file size is under 4GB isn't it and alot of these games seem to be over 4GB so fat32 isn't much good is it?

    What's a nand backup by the way? Not sure how to do these things or what the power reset left right thing is all about too.

    "Make a nand backup

    Press Power, Power, Power, Reset, Reset (or use gc-controller)
    Power = Right, Eject = Left, Reset = Select
    Once the backup is complete, exit bootmii to HBC
    Backup your Bootmii files to your PC
    sd:\bootmii
    sd:\nand.bin
    sd:\key.bin
    *DO NOT LOSE THESE FILES*"

    1.yes you can still use the shopping channel
    2.rip your original games to your hard drive useing the usb loader it will split the game automaticaly or use a program to split make the iso to wbfs and split it (link in my signature for wii game manager)
    3.if you ever brick your wii the nand backup can restore your wii, the press power etc is to move in the bootmii part of the guide or use a game cube controler
    thanks to bmarlo for this signature

    Cool. About question 2, what if you download your backups rather than create them yourself? Is there some workaround so it will go onto a fat32 drive?
    Thanks

    This is piracy, and is illegal
