I am Bliepo and I am here to welcome you to wiihacks! Since you have read quite a lot, you probably won't need them (all the links), but I'll still provide them, just in case you missed some. First of all, you should read the forum rules. Because you probably will not actually read them, I will give a short (but incomplete!) summary:
- Post in English and be polite. This is a family forum.
- Do not spam.
- Piracy and cheating are not supported.
You probably came here because you wanted to softmod your wii and we have a great guide to do so: the softmod any wii guide. You should also take a look at our recommend guides and tutorials and our other guides and tutorials which contain a wealth of info and allow you to do just about everything!
Wii's after the year 2009 can generally not play back-ups using the disc drive and will need to use USB Loading. If you need to know whether your usb drive is compatible, you can take a look at the USB Compatibility List. For USB loading we have a FAT 32 guide, a NTFS guide and a WBFS guide. If you need to know how to copy games to your drive, you should take a look at the wii game manger guide.
If you have problems with a particular game, you should take a look at the Ultimate List of Troublesome Games and their Solutions!.
You can also join IRC and chat live with members and staff (IRC Welcome & Rules).
If you like wiihacks, it would be very nice if you made a donation.
