    hacking my wii? i dont get it

    Hi i have a pal wii i live in malta its somewhere in europe. i didnt really want to hack it but i cant seem to find any game thats worth buying for it so im going to hack it like i did to my psp because otherwise its useless to me.

    i dont know the version it is in but i think it is above 4.0.

    what i mainly want is to be able to run wiiware and vc title that i download from pc
    maybe run backups aswell and most importantly NOT brick my wii..that would be disastrous

    i read about something called bannerbomb that looks pretty simple to install but i dont get what it will get me. i mean i read that it will help me install the HBC but then what? what do i need to load the games that i download from the SD card? do they need to be WAD format? i dont really understand anything. and im scared of bricking so any precautions to prevent that would be nice to know about.

    Find out what your system menu is (the number at the top right in the wii settings), go find the correct softmod guide in the recommended guides section and follow it, and look at the sticky in this section by mauifrog titled "brick prevention".

    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.

    As many of you know that 4.3 was released there are thread to discuss it, and to modify it.

    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)
