My name is Alex. I live in California and like to take long walks on the beach and read romantic novels. My hobbies include blowing up frogs with fire crackers and downloading stuff off of the internets. I have been accused of spreading rumors about myself and most of my time is spent doing just that. I am also a semi-compulsive liar, half of what I say is true.
Anyway, I like the Wii and have used the SoftMod Any WII guide to softmod my Wii which I got for $2 at a gay-raj sale--the Wii has a bad DVD drive (surprise surprise) which is what brought me to this site. So far its all working perfect... well.. mostly perfrect... more on this in another thread on another day...
I must say that the software developed by Team Twizzlers and the like is very impressive and not to be outdone by the exploits to dispatch said software. Some day I would like to know who these people are and how they come to know so much about the architeture of the Wii to implement all that they have... Until then, I will admire from a distance. What they do is truly time consuming and a work of art.
Ok then, see you all on the forums.

Thank you for becoming a member of the best wii modding site around!
First off you need to read the Site rules and try your best to abide by them.
Now we know the rules its time to find the right guide for modding your wii, I recommend the
The Softmod Any Wii Guide by Mauifrog
This guide works for all wii's
There are also other guides which you can find in the Guides and tutorials section
Once you have completed the guide you need to ascertain if your wii is capable of playing backups via the disc drive or whether you need to be usb loading.
Wii's post 2009 generally cannot play backups via the disc drive and have to use usb loading.
I recommend usb loading anyway as you can add an remove your games easily and there is no wear and tear on your disc drive and no messing about with discs etc.
What you will need to know -
What drives are compatible - Usb Compatibility list
How to set your drive up - Loading and Playing Wii Backup Games from USB HDD
Once your HDD is setup and ready to go, you will need a program to manage your games!
