Thread: Wii Newb says Hello!!

    Wii Newb says Hello!!

    Hey All, I just picked up a Wii in early December. And like anything, I have a hard time leaving it "stock". So I did some Google browsing on Modding the Wii, watched some YouTube videos, and read some stuff on this forum. Then decided to join.

    I'm hoping I can get all the information I need from the site so that I can successfully mod my Wii without Bricking it.

    Thanks in advance!

    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.

    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.

    Thanks for the info s0ur, I've been reading stuff on here for hours now....and you've given me a whole list of new stuff to look at now.

    I'm pretty sure I did a Wii Update when I first got my Console, so I'll be I've updated to 4.2, but I'll have to verify.

    Thanks for all your help thus far.
