I'm David Ring, 25. Been a console gamer for more than 10 years now.
I am a Biotechnology grad of the University of Wisconsin, and except for gaming I spend a lot of time with my girlfriend, on extreme city skateboarding, and teaching my pet cat Alex all sorts of cool tricks. I also donate hours every week to local public elementary school as an arithmetic teacher.
I've spent a lot of time lately trying to softmod my Wii, and after a few painful first experiences (which included a BSoD on my Wii Ė and a forfeited guarantee!). Iíve finally found what I was looking for
So I'm finally gonna say 'hi' and hopefully meet some other Wii hackers out there! Hi All!

Do not update to 4.3!! As it will be more difficult to softmod the Wii.

If your wii's firmware version is from 3.0-4.2 then follow this updated guide by Cile- 3.0-4.2 Softmod Guide
