Donít be shy, ask if you are stuck, just donít 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.

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
Donít 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.
And please do donate to the forum if you are able so we can go on helping the Wii community.
I hope you have a great time here at WiiHacks, and increase your knowledge of all things Wii.
Followed the tutorials and now i am up and running with usb loader and my external hard drive, even have the NSMB working, only game I can't get to work is Mario & Sonic Olympic winter games, i know it is something about the IOS being outdated. I dl'd the scrubber and IOSpatcher but I still don't understand completely how those work.
