    You can hack your wii. You probably won't be able to install bootmii as boot2. Follow the 3-4.1 guide and you should be able to play just about everything and install wiiware/vc titles. All NTSC-U Wiiware to date and virtual console!!! are here. And your original disks should still work.

    Q1. Can i hack my wii with LU63? (Able to install boot mii as boot2?)whats the difference with IOS?

    A1. Yes, you can indeed hack this wii, although you might not be able to install bootmii as boot2. The difference between the IOS BOOTMII and the BOOT2 BOOTMII is that if it's installed as BOOT2,every time you turn on your wii, it will load BOOTMII. If its installed as an IOS you must go to the homebrew channel and press home and select "BOOTMII IOS" or something relatively close to that. If you are able to install as BOOT2 DO IT!

    Q2. What do i need to play backup games, VC/ware games?where do i get wad games? will my original discs work normally?

    A2. It depends on how you want to the your backups. If you want to burn them to a disk, I would recommend A high quality DVD-R'S such as Verbatim
    You can burn them using IMGBURN or what ever you want to use. Just remember to burn them on a SLOW SPEED such as 2.0x or 2.4x or 4.0x at max. If you are wanting to run your backups off of an external harddrive i would recommend you use the usb loader "Configurable USB LOADER"

    You will also need to install CIOS 249 to launch these backup games
    If you are wanting to play backups of new games such as GH5 And Rock Band Beatles you will need to install Cios 222 & 223 and configure the usb loader to use IOS223 Mload.

    You can get wiiware games and VC games from here" VC GAMES
    and here: WIIWARE

    If all goes well you WILL be able to play your original games.

    Q3. Can anyone post a link to a UP TO DATE tutorial.

    A3. From HERE and HERE

    HOPE THIS HELPS! PLEASE THANK MII IF IT DID!

    You can install it as an ios, you just won't be able to restore your nand at current time.

    It means that bootmi as ios will backup your nand, but it is not recommended to restore it. If your wii bricks you will not be able to access bootmi as an ios. But it may have other uses, such as launching apps using the autoboot bootmii cd.
