    New to Softmodding...

    Hello, I am wondering if anyone is able to help me.

    I have read through various threads and am still concerned.

    Could anyone please provide me with a brief summary of the proceedures involved in installing homebrew, in order to allow me to download and play Rockband 2 and Guitar Hero 5 DLC?

    I need to know if it is important to backup things, if so, how and what are the recommendations for best practice etc?

    Are there any implications to playing games online and will I be able to update the firmware of my Wii in the future?

    Thank you for your support!

    hey man, welcome, i was new to this site couple weeks ago and i spent the whole day looking for a good source in modding my wii. I have a 4.2u system and bought my wii about a month ago. I used Messie's guide on this website (tells step by step) and im pretty technically r-tarded lol.
    1. Go to search on this site.
    2. click advanced search.
    3. scroll down , username search-type in messie
    4. it should be the first or second forum says 'modding 4.2 systems or sumthing.
    5. if your wii is older there should be a link there also.

    should save you sum time looking through all the forums for a reasonable guide. This one works good

    Hello bbbdan, thank you very much for your input!

    I shall follow your advice and see where it gets me, any ideas about updating, backing up and staying safe?

    Just for your information, I have the latest version of Wii Firmware. I checked earlier today for a new update, but there wasn't one to download.

    You must have the latest Firmware so you can't update which is good. Your safe as long as you follow directions to the letter in Messies guide. The guide tells you how to backup using bootmii and priloader.

    The most safe you can be is BootMii Installed in Boot2. Assuming its a newer Wii, you will be only able to install to IOS, which will still allow you to make a backup, but you will be unable to restore it, if anything should happen. That said, I myself and many others have used messie's 4.2 guide (assuming your on System Menu 4.2, go into options look in the top right to confirm), just make sure you read the whole thing first, make sure you understand it, and then do it step by step. You can find it here http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...tem-menus.html

    What you can do since your wii is the newer wii is install priiloader. It is also mention and a tutorial in Messie guide so you should be fine if you read it.
