    Starting out - new - need help/advice!

    Hello all. I am looking to mod my Wii to play backed up and foreign games, but have no idea what to do. I bought the wii a little over 2 years ago, and have no idea what type it is etc.

    I am wondering:

    • How do i do it and where can i get the resources?
    • Softmod or chip? (Id rather softmod if possible)
    • Is it possible to play games off an external HD / USB.
    • What can i get out of modding it etc?
    • Is it safe?
    • Should i go online on my wii and update it first, and is it fine to play games online?

    All other suggestions are welcome

    You should Post in the Intro Section.... But since you made it here it will come to you.....


    Welcome to the Ultimate Nintendo Wii Community. As with all good things there are rules that must

    Below are some basics that you will need on your journey!!

    Please start here our: Wiihacks Master Index, it contains many great links and if a great asset.
    There are two different routes that you can choose for modding your wii. You can either Hard-mod your wii with mod-chips or you can Soft-mod. We have a in-house trusted supplier for mod-chips Here, very trusted site, and great customer service. When and if you going to hard-mod your wii there is a great section here on the forum. Mod-Chip Section
    On the Flip-Side you can soft-mod you wii using only a SD Card... The guides that are here have been tried and tested and do work... DON'T FOLLOW FAIL-TUBE VIDS.... The first step that you need to do is find out what system menu version your wii is. After you find out that piece of information there are two guides that you can use.
    If you are on 3.1-4.1 system menu you can use the guide by dogeggs: [[Guide]]
    If you are on the 4.2 system menu the you can use the guide by Shadowsonic2: [[Guide]]
    Along the journey of modding your wii you might run into errors when trying to mod the software or install software on your wii. Members have created a list for this and can be accessed here: Wiihacks Error Index, most if not all of the errors are in there and how to fix them. If there is a certain guide that you are looking for or dont know if there is one yet well look no further: Wiihacks Guide Index (by username)

    Not directly, but his intro has the links to the softmod guides as well as some other useful stuff. Gotta kinda read between the lines, find the guides that are right for you, try them, then post questions in those threads if you have a problem or issue.

    Never quantify your life by comparison. It is always going to be apples to oranges. If you feel the need to always look down on others, you currently do not own enough mirrors------ Tommie Griffin.

    Search and read. Search and read. Search and read. It's all there and then some. I literally read 100's of threads and posts before attempting to do anything. The people here are knowledgeable and helpful as long as you do your homework. Go through the links emuhack sent you. The wealth is greater the deeper you mine.

    Repatriated to WH
    frogboy: and that's following which guide, Shadow Sonic's or Messie's? What tells you there are no stub IOS found? Are you absolutely sure this Wii is 4.2? More information is required if seriously needing assistance.

    Looking around is obvious. Though id rather have the majority of these questions directly answered, its not much to ask.
