Thread: Bought a hacked Wii...now what???

    Bought a hacked Wii...now what???

    I know NOTHING about hacking wii's (minus the bits and pieces I've been reading about the past 2 hours)

    We got our son a Wii off ebay for Christmas. Couldnt update it to play some games. I finally found out it was hacked. (held down reset and powered up)

    SO, my question is. Where do I go from here?
    Heres a pic of my Priiloader screen
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/28917583/201...2016.58.41.jpg

    I believe the wii is version 4.1u? or something like that.
    There was no sd card. So nothing in the system menu hacks.

    Basically, I just need help and a step by step dummy version of what I can do to update and play the newer games.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Follow the Softmod ANY Wii guide in my signature (note, you'll need to pick up a SD card...they're cheap anyway). If you follow that guide your Wii will be fully updated and able to play ANY games, even imports.

    ok. So I need to do ALL of that? there's no way to just update some things I already have? Since I have homebrew and priiloader, etc.

    Some of this seems a bit over my head when reading it. we will see though.

    Yes, I would do as SNES_Master said.

    You could probably do with an update to the soft mod anyway.
    Following that Guide will update everything even the Priiloader that's installed.

    Yes. Do all of it. It's the only way to know that everything is up to date. And even if it seems over your head, simply follow the instructions exactly as written an you'll be perfectly fine.

    Half an hour or so, probably.
