Howdy From Oklahoma.
Hi guys, just thought I'd introduce myself before I start asking a ton of questions. I'm new to the wii as a whole, but no stranger to modding devices. I'd love to be able to say that I am an expert at something relevant but sadly I am simply good at following directions in these matters. I've been perusing these pages for a few weeks now and have successfully softmodded 2 wiis using Mauifrogs most excellent 4.3 softmod guide and I have to say that this is pretty fun. That IndyPwns hack is just the coolest. Hacking a box ingame.... whoda thunk it?
Examples of my exploits to date-
phone unlocked and custom rom - check
psp softmodded - check
360 DVD flashed - check
pc video card modded and pipes opened - check
Linux on WD MyBookWorld - check
softmodded wii - check
All of this was accomplished by following the advice and tutorials of many TALENTED and highly SKILLED persons. I never ever could have done so much without the kind and generous help of others.
On that note, a big thanks for all of the information that I've received from the great community here at wiihacks.org. Hopefully I can learn something that can be used to help others one day.
