    Lightbulb ALL INFO - New Wii Owners - Welcome to wiihacks.com - Newbies / Beginners read here

    Hello and welcome to

    You joined the right site to learn everything about Wii modding and hacking.

    General Warnings: Do not update to 4.3! - Do not listen to youtube hacking tutorials - Do not use Pimp My Wii - Get a NAND backup - Install Priiloader - Use the search function!

    There are just a few things you should keep in mind. Be sure that you read the forum rules and understand them. Any discussion about pirated material or cheating will be shut down. Be sure to post in the correct forum section - best suiting the post's content.


    Searching and Posting

    Before posting it is always good to check if the question has been answered already, the chances are very high. Just give the searchbar a shot - further infos in the Ultimate Searching Guide by emuhack. Keep in mind you can also search within the thread your are currently reading, look above the posts and find "Search Thread" in the grey bar.

    Maybe you want to try out this as well:



    Just place your query before or behind "site:wiihacks.com".

    The Recommended Tutorials and Guides section will be your main source for information.

    You might also want to check out the Ultimate Wiihacks Index, the Author Index and the Wii Softmodding - Basics and Beyond to get along the site and get to know some hacking terminology etc .

    When you decide to post in the forum, make sure you are posting in the appropriate section of the forum and that you have searched and found no solution. Describe your problem in detail and what you have done before the error occured, provide a syscheck.


    >> You can now hack your 4.3 Wii with the LetterBox exploit, the LetterBomb!!, NO game is required <<



    FAQ

    FAQ / Hot Topics




    Your Wii


    Clearly you want to know what is inside your Wii. Track down the Wii's serial No. (sticker on the console's back) and just find it out!




    If you got a DVD drive with one of the newer D3-v2 or D4 chipsets you won't be able to play any non retail wii or gc game disc (game backup or movie dvd). All black/red and recently bought Wiis will have one of those chips.
    You got one? Go for a softmodding USB loading route.

    Go to your wii settings menu and look in the upper right corner and find out which system menu version you currently got installed on your wii. On that you decide which softmod guide to use and hack your wii.


    Softmod Guides

    To initially softmod your Wii use one of the following softmod guides. Just choose the guide which you understand the most. If you want to start over and want to get rid of a previous installation, just install new things on top of old. There is no need to delete everything or virginizing your wii. Make sure you install Bootmii get a NAND backup. Install Priiloader and block disc and online updates. To start, check your systemmenu version in the wii settings menu and choose a softmod guide accordingly.





    To load your game backups from a USB hard drive follow the:





    Modchip Users

    There is also a Wii Modchips Section.




    Chat

    its just, in the wrong hands you can cause more trouble than fix anything.
    stuff done by pimpmywii is covered in our softmod guides in a different and in my eyes better way.
    do some search on this tool on wiihacks and find more than enough threads about it in the bricked section.
    stay with wiihacks, our softmodguides and the wanin and hermes as cIOS thread for example if you want to "update" something.

    Great summary; thank you - wish I'd had this "guide to all the guides" when I first got my Wii a few weeks ago.

    I would include a link to USB Loader GX in the USB loader sections. CFG Loader has never worked for me to this day (trying two compatible drives and following all instructions to the letter). For others who have problems with it not recognizing their USB drive, USB Loader GX is a life-saver.

    This is a great thread! Just so you know, I forgive you for leaving my guide out of it. I know you have probably been trying to drink the guilt away, but I knew the only way you could forgive yourself is if I forgave you first.

    Hi Joostin,
    i like your guide and i did add it to my softmod basics when i realized it was there as the FAQ is copy pasted, you can find it in
    FAQ -> Basics -> (c)IOS
    I will add it to the "update/shall i update" thing as well



    edit: Happy New Year to all !!
