I am super noob to Wii but following the guides in this forum I was able to softmod it and create a hard disk with multiple partitions and play from it games that I made backup. It is incredible how accurate all info is considering that there are so many hacks, tweaks, etc. Congratulation to all staff that probably put tons of hours of work in this forum. Of course there are still lots to learn to master a Wii, it is just a matter of the time availability.
However, I wish to point out to some inconveniences created probably since the forum upgrade and/or moving. Many guides/threads connected are not connected via the links provided. For instance, if you go to:
you will find few dead links. It is the same with some dead links within guides where it directs you to read more about a subject or to download something.
Also, I could not find any info (I may take a risk to sound dumb here) on how to turn OFF the Wii so the USB power is OFF too, via remote. For instance, if I turn off the Wii, it goes in yellow, which means some parts are still powered, including the USB with the drive attached. Basically, I wish to turn the Wii off via remote, including the USB drive. Is it possible?
Thank you for being part of this forum.
