    Beginner's question

    So far I really like all the guides on this forum. I've hacked a few systems now, and am considering a wii. There is one I'm looking at, but have an important question about hacking before I purchase it.

    I know that I can use a USB loader to load my games on the homebrew channel and such, but the wii I'm considering purchasing has a broken disc drive. Will this interfere at all with me installing homebrew or loading games from a USB loader?

    it will make no difference to the ability to load games from USB, all the software you need to install is loaded from SD card.

    This is true but I think he is talking about hacking a wii with a broken disc drive... I used the Twilight hack for my wii and I had to use the disc drive. On the other hand that was a while ago and the new wii updates came out so I have no idea how hacking the wii works now... sorry.

    With Bannerbomb back working, one doesn't need to play a game disc to do the softmod. That's what you remember-having to play an original game disc in order to get the softmod going. Not needed-everything is on the SD card now. You can take a quick read through either the 3.1-4.1 or 4.2 softmod tutorials and compare it to your recollections:
