    First time trying to mod a wii (not quite failed just lost now)

    Ok lets start with I have no idea what any of this stuff is I was heavy into my soft modded ps2 so im not too untechnical... I have a white wii with 4.3 on it i did the letter bomb hack to install hbc (getting hints and clues from youtube vids) I am hoping not to have to start over from scratch but it doesnt seem like that much of a back track anyhow... i think i possibly over stepped a few things as my wii mote freezes on me when trying to install install ios's... I read a post on here about it and i think that is my problem as i also tried to install usb loader gx and it says that i do not have the ios installed i also stumbled upon mauifrog's softmod guide here which i am hoping will serve me well on my next attempt... i did manage to get emulators running through hbc which i noticed are not quite the best though the 9x was decent i was hoping for a better 64 emulator though again maybe its just cause my mod is incomplete... if anyone cares to give me some tips or direct me to a good guide its appreciated as I would like to get this right the next time i do this!!! thanks alot...

    You answered your own question - follow mauifrogs softmod any Wii guide

    and welcome to

    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

    And Bluphant's noobs guide - Basic introduction to wii hacking

    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!
    Checkout Peire's
    Wii Game Manager Guide

    Now your set up and ready to go, but you run in to a problem with one of your game backups -

    List of problematic games and the solutions

    Now if you're a modchip user you need to get over to the
    Modchip Section

    Wiihacks also has an IRC chat room so you can get live help and assistance from staff and other
