So in order to softmod my wii...
I am going to be using smashstack on 4.3u menu and I plan on purchasing a usb hard drive for my wii as well.
My question is how would I go about putting games onto the hard drive and playing them on my wii?
Check out the link in my signature for FAT32 USB Hard Drives. There is also a link within that guide where you will find Gen3sf's USB HDD Tutorial which. You can follow either guide to get your backups working from USB (After completing the Softmod guide).
