    My very late introduction.


    I'm Offbeat (or Austin if you want to be personal), and I joined this forum almost a year ago. I have been browsing the site since before that, and I finally made a post today.

    I've been doing Homebrew for a very long time. I don't know any coding or making my own apps or cIOS or anything, but I'm very familiar with setting up homebrew (hence, I've never made a post here asking any questions).

    I love anything Nintendo, and the Zelda series are probably my favorite games.

    If I had to make a list, my top five favorite games would be in order from most favorite to.. favorite

    1. Mass Effect series
    2. Zelda series
    3. Mario series
    4. Fallout series
    5. Assassin's Creed series

    Along with Nintendo games, I play FPS games mainly. You won't find me on CoD, though. I play strictly PC games, with the exception of just a few on console (Assasin's Creed Brotherhood, Red Dead Redemption).

    I'd like to get into scripting and creating apps for people and what not, but as of now it isn't a high priority.

    I try to be as helpful as possible, and I'm one of the few people who know how to use the extremely complicated way of figuring things out-- google. I hope to serve as a helpful person to the these forums and.. yeah.

    Hello and welcome to

    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 - Do not use Pimp My Wii - Get a NAND backup - Install Priiloader - Use the search function!

    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.

    Searching and Posting

    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 above the posts and find "Search Thread" in the grey 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, the Author Index and the Wii Softmodding - Basics and Beyond to get along the site and get to know some hacking terminology etc .

    When you decide to post in the forum, make sure you are posting in the appropriate section of the forum and that you have searched and found no solution. Describe your problem in detail and what you have done before the error occured, provide a syscheck.

    Your Wii

    Clearly you want to know what is inside your Wii. Track down the Wii's serial No. (sticker on the console's back) and just find it out!

    If you got a DVD drive with one of the newer D3-v2 or D4 chips you won't be able to play any non retail wii or gc game disc (game backup or movie dvd). All black/red and recently bought Wiis will have one of those chips.
    You got one? Go for a softmodding USB loading route.

    Go to your wii settings menu and look in the upper right corner and find out which system menu version you currently got installed on your wii. On that you decide which softmod guide to use and hack your wii.

    Softmod Guides

    To initially softmod your Wii use one of the following softmod guides. Just choose the guide which you understand the most. If you want to start over and want to get rid of a previous installation, just install new things on top of old. There is no need to delete everything or virginizing your wii. Make sure you install Bootmii get a NAND backup. Install Priiloader and block disc and online updates.

    To load your game backups from a USB hard drive follow the:

    Modchip Users

    There is also a Wii Modchips Section.
