Thread: Fresh Softmod, Now what?

    Fresh Softmod, Now what?

    I've been holding off forever on doing anything to my wii as I hardly ever use it but given my spare time I recently got bored and decided to softmod it via letterbomb. I now have bootmii 2 as ios and the HBC but now what should I do? I already backed up the nand to my sd card. So where to go from there? Just load the HBC up with apps? I just have to make a apps folder in the root of my sd card? I know I can use external drives now, is it possible to just use that instead of the sd card? My external is already formatted to fat32 but I know there is a limit of 4gb files would I be better off formatting to NTFS? I would very much like the ability to rip & backup my wii games to my external to save my laser. I know a need a usb loader, like gx or wiiflow but which to choose?

    I read that wiiconnect24 should be turned off indefinitely as Nintendo can force update? Not so sure about that though. So I've read to install Priiloader to prevent this.

    I also read that after 4.2 they block out of region games? is this true? is it just for the wii? cause I have some pal gamecube games I would like to play.

    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
