my wii i just got today is serial LEM1074xxxxxxxxx i think its chipset GC2-D4 will this method of soft modding work on my console?
Any console can be softmoded but not all can read DVD-R backup games. In those cases the only way to play backup games in through a USB loader from a USB hard drive. In your case you can do either backup DVD-Rs and/or USB loading.
aw thats too bad i got a 2 gb mini inside an adapter and an 8 gb sdhc guess i gotta run out and get a 2gb sd before i play around. this is exciting though so is there any reason to get a modchip after this is set up? im assuming by usb harddrive you can also use a usb flash to load from?
oop looks like i cant do this my wii says 4.2e

I'm sure we are all bias here and tell you that our guides are much better. We offer full support of our guides and will work with users until they get the job done. You can virginize your Wii but it is not recommended (there are guides for that). And lastly no do not download torrents. It is illegal and not supported by WiiHacks. You can make backups of the games that you own. There are guides for that as well.

I have been wanting to mod my wii since i bought it a few months ago. Researched alot on the modding community (for months lol) and finally decided to muster up my courage to mod my wii by following this guide. Have already completed the guide and so far everything's good. Will come back if i encounter any problems. Thanks Dogeggs and other WiiHacks staff for putting up this wonderful guide. Cheers!
My problem was that in Step 3 C where i had to restore IOS15. During this step trucha closed unexpectedly and now I cannot load trucha from the homebrew channel without the entire screen going black and nothing loading. I was told to restart step 3, but i cannot because loading any program will result in the black screen.
You can either full format the SD and extract the files and try again with TBR, or try the Fakesign IOS36 guide in my signature, then come back and finish the guide (installing cIOS38 rev 17 and so on).
Damn I suck!!!!
