Ready to give it a shot. PLEASE HELP
Ok. So I have a Wii that I would like to play back ups on. I purchased the Wii Oct 2008 and I have not updated it since Feb 2009.
I am not good enough to solder a chip internally.
I have done a softmod multiple times on a PSP so I am not scared of doing the softmod on the Wii.
I don't know where to begin. Should I upgrade the OS first? Do I leave it where it is?
I would like to be able to play game from an external hard drive.
I also am looking to do this is the cheapest way possible.
softmod is free... check out the tutorials on this site or in sigs.

If you have softmodded your psp, i think you should not have to much problems with softmodding your wii. Best of luck
Go sour! lol, t'was what I was going for but it's more your place to get all offical on their ass :P
OMG HELP. I followed the instruction and the screen is upside down!!!
HAHA. Don't worry about it. It's just a prank on pirates. Continue with the guide, and when you're done if it's not fixed re-install homebrew. It's ok. Really.
Just re-install HBC and you will be fine. That happens once you trucha, the HackMii guys don't condone piracy so the "flip" is kinda like and "f you" to piraters.
If it didn't cause so much headache and grief around here I would think it was a hysterical prank... But I also wonder how many people have bricked their wii in a panic because of it.
Yea it is hysterical, but it sucks on our end.
