    This contains all the terminology that you will most likely come across here at wiihacks, It will help you to better understand whats going on

    Once you know the terms, Your gonna wanna get out there and start hackin! But as always theres some guides to read, I cannot stress that you MUST READ THESE GUIDES CAREFULLY if you don't and carelessly do whatever then there are chances that you will BRICK your wii!!!!

    Now that you know what not to do, Follow these guides for hacking your wii, All you need to know 1st up is what firmware your wii is running


    Softmodding Firmware 3.1-4.1 by Dogeggs, Follow guide exactly and you shouldn't have any problems
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html

    For users of 4.2 firmware wiis: I think this guide by Shadow is quite easy as I have tried it on a friends wii and it worked flawlessly, There is also a guide by Messie

    WHAT? You screwed something up and want to remove the softmods??? Sure thing boss!

    Now, I’ve seen a lot of people say FREE WII POINTS!!!
    There are no generators or anything, All you'll need to do is softmod your wii, get homebrew channel up and running, use a wad manager/installer to install the wads and bingo, Free channels. Now if you ask "How do I do that?" Then go here

    hi there, i recently got a wii and my brother bought me some games from china (copied ones) iv been searching and searching about home brew on google and all sorts of forums but non of them really answer my question, so its either so obvious no one has bothered to ask, or its not doable.
    can i play coppied games from china using wii home brew?

    i know i probably sound like a dumb ass, and compared to some of you comp wizzes on here thats probably true, but pls don't be mean i just need a straight answer, thanx
