Hi from Ireland
Hi all, the wifes in the process of getting a Wii. and being the inveterate tinkerer that I am, I HAVE to have a go at modding it....
Hope to learn lots!
Please be patient with me, I live in the west of Ireland and we only got electricity here in the late 1950's <- not a joke!
Just a tip if you haven't bought one yet, try and get a pre 2008 one its easier to mod and has more functions. A new one is nice and shiny though.
Hi and welcome to WiiHacks Halloween
If you need advice or help for anything Wii related you have joined the right site, whether its hard or soft modded.
Don’t be shy, ask if you are stuck, just don’t expect other people to do all the work for you.
Before you start anything, make sure you read the rules go over the tutorials, and most importantly, search before asking questions.
Make sure you post in the correct areas of the forums.
Here is the site index Ultimate WiiHacks Index written by ShadowSonic2
If you are starting from scratch, new 3.1-4.1 written by Dogeggs
If you already have Homebrew, upgrade to 4.1 written by Dogeggs
Don’t update to 4.2, but if you are already on 4.2, complete 4.2 guide written by Messie
2009 Wii Serial numbers after LU3884XXXX and LEH2676XXXX have probably got the new D3-2 chip that prevents playing backup DVDs. They can still use original discs and USB loaders.
I hope you have a great time here at WiiHacks, and increase your knowledge of all things Wii.
Shouldn't be a problem, she's buying our grown up daughters Wii so I imagine it will be at the latest 2007 vintage.
Excellent, you will get boot2, don't upgrade to 4.2.
