    THIRD way to play backups!? o_O

    Hey all, I was recently talking to a friend who considers himself somewhat of a tech guru and so I asked him about hacking wii, what he told me was not a modchip NOR a softmod but a special dvd you put in first before loading up ur backed up wii games. What the hell is this? Was he misinformed? And if not WHERE THE HELL CAN I GET ONE?

    If it does exist, it still sounds like a pain in the @ss. I do not want to walk my lazy butt over to the wii for anything, that's why I use USBloader.

    Lmao xD That's understandable - but I've yet to softmod so if it would save me the hassle of going through all that then it would be welcome. Anyone else know if there is such a DVD?

    Your friend is way off. A while back there was a commercial bootdisc for the Wii called FreeLoader. FreeLoader would allow you to play retail out of region games and that was it. You couldn't launch backups with it. Nintendo killed FreeLoader long ago with system updates.

    @OP, read the information available on the site. You will find no mention of a magic disk, just guides and other information freely available to all those willing to learn.
