    Hi there,
    I'm hoping someone can help this noob, I just grabbed a "new" wii and have been trying to softmod to allow playing games from either sd card, usb thumb drive or usb hdd drive. I've been told that the usb thumb drive / hdd drive is easier is this true?

    I have followed this guide: http://www.howtogeek.com/210185/how-to-install-the-homebrew-channel-on-a-nintendo-wii-the-easy-way/

    I then tried to follow the link at the end about using a usb drive for games however this required a 3rd guide where the download links are dead which i can't therefore perform. Just to confirm all that has been actioned on the wii is the first guide. The nes, snes emulators appear to be working. Unsure what direction to go now, id like to get my wii games (iso's or I believe I can convert these?) playing from a sd / usb hdd / thumb drive (which ever is easier). I'd be grateful for any advice as these guides I've been using might be outdated and there is a lot of conflicting information online.
    Please help.

    Usb drive guide link (not done as identifies needs the below): http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/40349/install-a-wii-game-loader-for-easy-backups-and-fast-load-times/

    3rd guide (with missing files - non of this has been done): http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/3804...ection-to-safeguard-and-supercharge-your-wii/

    USB drive is easiest. You need to install a cIOS first to use usb: https://sites.google.com/site/completesg/backup-launchers/installation
    And you need to install a usb loader (preferably usbloadergx) https://sites.google.com/site/completesg/backup-launchers/usb

    Make sure when following that cIOS guide that you choose "beta52" for both slots 249 and 250. I don't know why it suggests beta53 but that can lead to compatibility problems.

    Priiloader works with either Wii remote or GC controller.

    Right, thanks for catching that! I'm worried I'll mess it up.
    So if I follow, 2, 3, 4 and 5 here: http://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-s...backup-wii-gamecube-and-wiiware-games.360687/
    But i use the newer version of the apps eg priiloader 8 etc?
    ... I think step 1 is basically the same as the guide I followed earlier.....?
    Oh and should I check and if needed update the hbc and bootmii?

    And then cross reference with the above advice, should that cover me for all? Or do i totally ignore this and just follow the first steps above and use the correct version?
    Sorry for all the noob questions!

    I am doing my research before modding my Wii U, and I think I have settled on FlimFlam69's Kernel Exploit guide. Does anyone have any experience with this guide? Any opinions greatly appreciated, I just want to do things right. Thanks!

    I'd ask that in the Wii U section. This thread is in the old Wii support area.

    Would someone be able to just double check my confusion above before I go ahead? I'm just unsure which route I should take - I don't want to break anything without guidance from the pros?
    Thank you

    Need some help here guys. I'm trying to install CFW on a 3DS XL on 6.2.0-10E. I've got as far as running the nds file off the flash card but I get a blank screen rather than booting into decrypt. I'm using the Decrypt 9 (MSET) tut.

    The off line hack is the only option available to be because each time I try and use the browser hack, it promote me to update. Any help or advice with this will be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance guys.

    This is the Wii section. You might want to post this in the Wii U area.

    If you're gonna burn a disc, you should do it at a slow speed so its more likely it'll burn without mistakes.

    With this new NES class mini I got in the retro mood and decided to buy one for Christmas for my oldest daughter (6 years old)...wrong! That thing is sold out everywhere! So to find out if she's into gaming at all I thought it would be a good idea to try out some simpler older games first. So I hacked the Wii via ModMii (great programm btw) and now I've got a custom menu and everything but when it comes to running an installed Virtual Console channels the whole things turns black and I have to hold the power button to reset it again.
    Can someone please give me some pointers?

    If they weren't purchased on that console then you either have to patch system IOSes to restore the signing bug or run them from an EmuNAND folder. The latter is easier and much safer. :)

    Hmm ok, I didn't purchase them because it was a tryout and I don't even know if it's still possible to buy stuff on the Wii. When I turned it on I got all kind of service message mails that things were taken offline.
    So I guess I will have to try your second option. Can still be run from a separate channel then or will that be from an emulator or so?

    Thanks for your reply!

    There's a homebrew app called Mighty Channels that's only for WiiWare/VC if you don't want to use a USB loader.

    The Wii Shop is still up. It's only the Nintendo Wifi Connect service (weather, news, gaming) that they closed.
