    Question Questions befor hacking my Wii!

    Hello.

    I would like to start off with, I have never hacked a Wii, don't know how it's done fully.
    But i have hacked my PSP so I'm not totally unfamiliar with hacking.

    I am sorry if I break any rules now but I have been looking around it the forum and searched around Google to find answers. Either I don't find it or it is to hard to understand.

    Fist. I have a Nintendo Wii bought about 2 years ago and never updated or connected to the Internet. Was thinking, I connected my Wii to my wireless Internet router today and an update window appeared, I pressed NO and turned it off. If I update my Wii, will it update to the latest software right away or will it need several updates?

    I don't want to update to a software that is unhackeble (if that exists)

    Second. I think I have version 3.3E on my Wii, found it under Wii settings. Is that a good version or should i update to an other version?

    Third. All I want to be able to do with my Wii is play downloaded games (burned on a disk or from a SD/USB memory) What tutorial suits me the best considering my software version and my needs? Remember that I am new to this so if there is "Easy tutorials" I would prefer them instead.

    Thank you and I'm sorry for any spelling errors.

    first of all welcome This would be the guide you would use

    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html

    Just follow the instructions word for word... You do not need to update to 4.3, 4.2 and 4.3 updates were mainly to stop the hacking. You should be able to load Priiloader as a boot2. Make sure you do a backup of your nand, so just in case something unfortunate should happen, you will have a way to restore your wii.

    If you have any questions you can always pm me, i have done over 25 softmods and can help you with the basic installation.

    It's a good thing you didn't update. The wii will automatically update to the latest version (4.3) while that's not needed (4.1 is the latest with anything useful added)

    I believe 3.3 is ok to softmod, though some people use a "safe updater" to get to 4.1 and benefit from the extras (not sure what those extras are besides the SD card icon in the main system menu) The guide that BIGBOYSAC gave also covers updating to 4.1, so following that guide will get you there.

    You can play games that are burned or put on an USB harddrive without problems, that's the whole point of softmodding it.
    Though this site doesn't support piracy (download games without buying the original) so you might get little or no support if you can't check if a game works with the original disk for example. Also asking for/sharing links to download sites for Wii games can (and most likely will) get you banned.

    As for DVDs: Verbatim DVD-R are the best according to most people on these forums.

    Just a little warning
    Probably over half of the people here are here for pirating games, not for playing legit backups.
