    Talking Now then people!

    Hi all, I'm brand new to the forums (hence this post).
    I purchased my wii on ebay the other day, and it was already modded.
    (home brew channel, wiiflow v2.1 r92 (Upgrade button says download failed.) and Neo-gamma R8, IOS 249 (Rev 17) on home screen)
    Now I'm here to learn all about it!
    I've got experience modding mobile devices but modding my game console is all new to me so I'm excited to learn!
    Thanks in advance to everyone who shares their wisdom!
    btw When I try loading a burned dvd-r - I get DVD read error (1167)
    I'd also love to know how to delete old IMG's from the HDD.
    Maybe it all needs deleting & updating?
    Cheers Tristan

    and welcome to

    Thank you for becoming a member of the best wii modding site around!

    First off you need to read the
    Site rules and try your best to abide by them.
    Also You need to realise that this site is here to help you make the most out of your Wii and not to help people with piracy!

    Now we know the rules its time to learn some basics about your Wii, the best way to do this is to read

    Bluphant's noobs guide - Basic introduction to wii hacking

    Once you have familiarized yourself with the Wii, Wiihacks recommend you follow this guide

    The Softmod Any Wii Guide by Mauifrog

    This guide works for all wii's with an sd card slot

    There are also other guides which you can find in the
    Guides and tutorials section

    Once you have completed the guide you need to ascertain if your wii is capable of playing backups via the disc drive or whether you need to be usb loading.

    Wii's post 2009 generally cannot play backups via the disc drive and have to use usb loading.

    I recommend usb loading anyway as you can add an remove your games easily and there is no wear and tear on your disc drive and no messing about with discs etc.

    What you will need to know -

    What drives are compatible -
    Usb Compatibility list

    How to set your drive up -
    It is highly recommended to use Fat32 guide

    Once your HDD is setup and ready to go, you will need a program to manage your games!
    Checkout Peire's
    Wii Game Manager Guide

    Now your set up and ready to go, but you run in to a problem with one of your game backups -

    Bmarlo's Ultimate List of problematic games and the solutions

    Peire's Ultimate guide to music and dance games

    Now if you're a modchip user you need to get over to the
    Modchip Section

    Wiihacks also has an IRC chat room so you can get live help and assistance from staff and other

    members -
    IRC welcome and rules

    4.1 is the preferred system menu, anything after that was just anti-Homebrew.

    If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct

    Don't update to anything from Nintendo. Just follow the Softmod any Wii guide as-is starting at whatever menu version you have.

    Don't update, format, delete, uninstall anything. The guide will take care of everything if you follow it properly.

    Your efforts are greatly appreciated, I'll get it in the end.
