    Us Getting Started?

    Hi,

    I bought a Wii about 18 months ago, and would now like to try and hack it to be able to download games and play them. How do I get started?

    There are lots of FAQs (one link is broken, though):

    http://www.wiihacks.com/general-home...ng-wii-faq.htm

    but none that tell me how to actually get started. A few questions:

    - How do I determine what version I have? I have the serial number. Do I need to open the case?

    - How do I know if I need to buy a ROM chip or whether I can use software only?

    - What software application should I use to write Wii game images downloaded from bittorrent to a DVD?

    - What software application should I use to actually write the software modification to the Wii?

    - Where is the HOWTO? There is a great collection of individual answers to various questions, but it's tough to get started without some type of guide.

    Thanks,
    Dave
