Hi all, new on here
Hi all, im John from the UK, just got my new Wii Black through today and wanted to know where to start so I can play games from DVD or Hard Drive.
Not sure how to tell what version number it is or anything, what has to be done first?
Please can someone help?
You may find your new Wii has the new drive chip D3-2, this will prevent you playing backup DVD's but you will be able to use original discs and usb loaders.

Before you start anything, make sure you read the rules go over the tutorials, and most importantly, search before asking questions.

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 DVD's. 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.
