    I want to mod my Wii. I did a quick google search but there's just a shit load of stuff out there and if you guys can just quickly direct me to a good site or faq that'd be cool.

    I've been wanting to mod it for a long time and now that they have the homebrew setup for the new wii menu I think it's a perfect time.

    halp :hsd:

    Try gbatemp.net and read.

    I used the softmod method, but it seems like there are so many new firmwares and different boards and shit. gl sir

    first thing you need to do is find out which wii you have. The mnewer ones cant be softmoded (lu64+ serials)

    If you have an older wii its pretty simple, just find a good guide that relates to the firmware you have inside the wii and follow the steps

    I remember reading around for 4 or 5 hours before I tried it

    Thanks I'll give that a look :h5:

    How do you find this out? I'm reasonably sure that I have one that can be modded because I bought it ~1 1/2 years ago.

    not sure try searching gba temp on serials. Or try google.
    Im pretty sure your fine if you bought it 1 1/2 years. I think they started coming out around march 09.

    So next thing for you do to is find out which firmware your wii has. go to the system menu and it should say a number like 3.0 or 4.0e or whatever

    it should work. Just make sure you have a 2gig or smaller sd card. I dont think the wii fully supports over 2 gig with some programs. That is what fucked me up at first so I had to go buy a really cheap one.

    I also think theres some incompatible sd cards too . there should be a post or something about that on the forum or in google

    either you didnt put the files on correctly, or your sd card isnt supported, or your not in the right wii menu. or maybe you need to format your card properly.

    also make sure the files are exactly like in the guide. The boot.elf should be in the root directory of the sd card. I would just delete everything else off the card just incase

    usb loader gx works great
    has an awesome interface too
    you tend to play more wii games when you can access them all with out putting any discs in
