    Whats up? Picked up a Wii today for my son. Wii has the LU70 Serial number. From the serial look up it looks like i will have the GC2-D3-2 (v2) with no drive chip. Thats the drive chip that wont play back-up disc right?

    After reading around it looks like i need to use this guide

    or this guide

    I`m not sure what system menu i have as i haven't had the chance to get my kids out of the house to boot up the Wii. These are the best guides i have been able to find so i commend you guys on the great site you have built here. If i have any problems hopefully someone here can help me out. The only soft-modding i have done was with an original xbox.

    Hello and welcome to the wiihacks community. Once you discover the correct tutorial for your Wii, I hope you have a smooth softmod experience. Good luck.

    You have joined the world’s largest Wii modding and forum community. To help you access the useful and relevant information available on this site, it is strongly recommended that you first look at this special site index: Wiihacks Ultimate Index.

    Make sure you read the rules of this site. There are a number of tutorials and guides available to assist you. Many of our new members find the tutorials for softmodding any 3.1-4.1 Wii and any 4.2 Wii particularly useful. Make sure to either look through the site tutorials and guides or use the search function before asking questions. While the moderators, staff, and members of this community are willing to help you, some effort on your part to read, research, and follow the rules is expected. To get the best response to your question(s), post in the associated forum areas. This is very important as inappropriate posting could get you restricted to the reading room or even banned. If, after looking at the tutorials and trying to search, you still need help or just want to post a very basic type of question, go to the

    Wiihacks also has a chat room on irc:// . After reading the iRC rules, please feel free to join in the light-hearted chats and activities. While any IRC client can connect to #wiihacks on the UICN , there are tutorials to help you connect using either ChatZilla or mIRC.

    If this site and our members have provided substantive help, you can Donate to the forum and get a nice banner under your name and gain access to the donator forums.

    If you do find that your Wii has the D3-2 chip as evidenced by the failure to read a few backup discs you burn, then a common workaround is to play from an external USB HDD: Enjoy your stay with us.
