    Merry Christmas to all(and ibe g of you help)

    Hi i'm what seems to be known as a noobie(am i ever!!) I actually found this site trying to fix a problem, probably a regular event here. Basically i read about soft modding a wii elsewhere and being a man I dived right in as it could be invaluable to be able to back up games to a hardrive 3 kids and delicate discs make a short shelf life. I installed bootmii with hackmii, set up homebrew channel(using bannerbomb) and all seemed dandy. But it just doesnt seem to be acting correctly. I cannot seem to install usb loader and it also hangs so i asked google which dutifully sent me here(bless it). having trawled the faqs and tutorials i soon realised i had installed an older cios rev10 and neither priiloader or Trucha Bug Restorer were in the download. the tutorial was nowhere near as implicit in its instructions either. So the plan was to return my console to virgin state and start again with the excellant tutorial here. i say was because as of now the first part of it the firmware update is saying please wait...>> downloading content #126... and has been for an hour Sooo... a word help!!!
    P.S I know this is for introductions but when my kids tell their mother that daddy broke the wii who I am and what my likes and dislikes are will be irrelevant

    Welcome to WiiHacks,

    Take the time to read the RULES! of the site, you don't wanna be sent to the Reading Room, or worse, Banned because you broke a rule of the site.


    Got a mod-chip? Thinking about a mod-chip? Then go HERE! for many of the answers you're looking for. Just know that you can just as effectively mod a system without a mod-chip.

    Please take a look at this link for any answers to most of your questions/problems New Member Introductions [thanks ShadowSonic]

    Got a Bricked or Semi Bricked Wii? Then look no farther than THIS! thread for the possible solution.

    BUT!!! Before asking a question please visit THIS!and THIS! thread..... [thanks FAVS & trekster]

    If your on the 3.1 - 4.1 System Menu then you may want to start HERE! [thanks Dogeggs]

    If your on the 4.2 System Menu, then THIS! is where you want to be. [Please note, DO NOT update to 4.2 if you arn't already] [thanks messie]

    Getting an error while trying to do something? The Answer is HERE! [thanks messie]

    Wanna know what all this cIOS/IOS talk is all about....Then check THIS! thread out. [thanks Cressida]

    Also take note that Nintendo has been putting some new drivechips in their systems that will disable playback of ANY burnt discs. To see if your Wii is one that has this new D3-2 chip refer toTHIS!page and cross reference your serial number. Please note that USB Loading is still functional even if you have this chip.

    Want to find out a bit about USB loading, try THIS!link out [thanks gen3sf]

    Any other questions/answers that were not covered, then please ask them HERE! [thanks ModderMan for the awesome site]

    Please read, reAD, READ till your eyes bleed. Go over everything until your sure you can attempt these mods. You don't want a bricked Wii because of a step you might have missed.

    Have Fun! and Good Luck!!!!
