    wiikey 2 AND homebrew AND firmware 4.0

    Hi I am new to this modding stuff, but have just had a wiikey 2 installed. I have successfully used backed up games from different regions in my wii.

    I understand that homebrew is for software modding etc, and that it appears that it is not available on firmware 4.0 due to limitations from nintendo. is this correct?

    If / when this is over come how do I install the homebrew channel on my modded wiikey2 wii? What is the benefit given I have the wiikey 2 already?

    Any good links to games sites, i have been using torrents which are unreliable.

    1. Homebrew has not been released for v4.0 yet.

    2. How you install it unknown until they find the vulnerability in v4.0. Most likely you will need to follow this excellent post exactly:

    http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-gu...ade-guide.html

    3. You will be able to download and play many games not otherwise available.

    4. As far as links to games, anyone who provides you with a link on this site will most likely get a swift kick in the ass for posting it as its borderline illegal to do so.

    Hope It Helps...

    YOu may add Hb if you'd like now on 4.0 version...except for LU64xxxx models..using bannerbomb, and several other software..from demoniod. Depends what you really wanna do. Do a bit of research and I'm sure you can make a decision that fits your liking.

    I used this thread to update to 4.0 and have the ability to play VC and wiiware games off the SD card. I followed all of the instructions (there's a link in the actual thread itself) in detail and everything worked out great. Homebrew still works in it, too.

    Hello guys,
    I'm very new to Wiihacks and on the net there is plenty of tutorials and guides... far too many to be sure and safe 100%.

    I made some reading and I'd like to have confirmation or correction to my understanding.

    I have a Wii, firmware 3.4E, with a genuine WiiKey2.
    No HBC installed (yet).

    I can safely upgrade to firmware 4.0 without risk for the usability of my "backup" games on DVD.
    True/false?

    Once I upgrade my Wii to Firmware 4.0 I can install HBC using the guide How to get Homebrew Channel on virgin 4.0 Wii found on this forum.
    True/false?

    thank you in advance for your help!

    Lightbulb Wiikey 2 and DVD playback AND 4.0

    Hi guys. I'm brand new to this forum and the benefits to modding the Wii. I've installed the wiikey2 to my 4.0 updated firmware. My question is...do I need homebrew to playback DVDs with my wiikey 2? If not, is there a link to thread with instructions in how to do so that I've not yet found? This would help me save space by my TV by eliminating my other DVD player. I'd also like to know how to play all other mdeia, like divx or mpegs and such off of data disks if it is possible. Thanks guys. It sure would help me out!
