    Welcome to WiiHacks D3MQN,

    You will need a SD card to hack your Wii. A SanDisk 2 GB SD card is recommended, most SD cards will work, but do not use a SDHC card. Please, anymore questions should be posted in the noobie section for now, until you learn your way around the forum.

    You joined the right site to learn everything about Wii modding and hacking.

    General Warnings: Do not update to 4.3! - Do not listen to youtube hacking tutorials!

    There are just a few things you should keep in mind. Be sure that you read the forum rules and understand them. Any discussion about pirated material or cheating will be shut down. Be sure to post in the correct forum section - best suiting the post's content. Before posting it is always good to check if the question has been answered already, the chances are very high. Just give the searchbar a shot - further infos in the Ultimate Searching Guide by emuhack. Keep in mind you can also search within the thread your are currently reading, look at the top right corner and find "search thread" in the bar.
    Maybe you want to try out this as well:
    Just place your query before or behind "".

    The Recommended Tutorials and Guides section will be your main source for information.

    You might also want to check out the Ultimate Wiihacks Index and the Wii Softmodding - Basics and Beyond to get along the site and get to know some hacking terminology etc .

    Softmod Guides

    To initially softmod your Wii use one of the following softmod guides. Just choose the guide which you understand the most.

    To load your game backups from a USB hard drive follow the FAT32 loading guide, the WBFS loading guide or the NTFS loading guide.

    Modchip Users

    There is also a Wii Modchips Section.
