    Welcome to the 'Ultimate Wii Hacking Guide for Beginners'. In this tutorial you're gonna hack your Wii so you can play backups from DVD's or an external HDD.

    Let's get started
    First you need to choose from several methods. You can choose to install HBC (Homebrew Channel) via a Game Exploit to launch HackMii or you can use LetterBomb via SD. Next you need to choose if you want to load back ups from DVD's or from a HDD. Note: If you have an older system menu then 4.3, you have yo use either Method E or F.

    If you want to load HackMii via a game exploit you need to have one of the following games and at least played them once:
    • Super Smash Brothers Brawl
    • LEGO Indiana Jones
    • LEGO Batman
    • LEGO Star Wars
    • Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's
    • Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World
    Methode A - I want to Hack my Wii with a Game Exploit and load back ups from DVD's.

    Methode B - I want to Hack my Wii with a Game Exploit and load back ups from a HDD.
    Methode C - I want to Hack my Wii and load LetterBomb from my SD and load back ups from DVD's. (Makkelijkst).
    Methode D - I want to Hack my Wii and load LetterBomb from my SD and load back ups from a HDD.
    Methode E - I want to Hack my Wii (Only System Menu 3.2 - 4.2) and load BannerBomb from my SD and load back ups from DVD's.
    Methode F - I want to Hack my Wii (Only System Menu 3.2 - 4.2) and load BannerBomb from my SD and load back ups from a HDD.

    Method A

    Viriginizing can easily lead to a brick. I don't even understand why you posted here.

    Thank you very much for the tutorial.
    I followed Method D and now I'm running backups from my USB HD drive. :D

    Just a tip: add the site http://www.gametdb.com/ to your tutorial, since people will need GAMEIDs to rename the .iso files in USB HD.

    If you are stuck using method C, D, E or F do this:

    After Letterbomb/BannerBomb do this:

    Step X: Download these files
    Download
    Copy them to your MicroSD. (NOTE: Ignore the ModMii Guide, just delete it. It's Dutch and I accidentally uploaded it.)

    Step 2: Installing a Patched IOS
    Open up the Homebrew channel, start 'Simple IOS Patcher'. Choose 'IOS36' and press A. Choose 'Install IOS to slot' and choose 236. Choose 'Install patched IOS36' with the 4 patched turned on 'yes' and press A. Choose 'Load IOS from SD card'. Press A. Press A to continue to the installation (if asked). If the installation is complete, press B to exit.
    NOTE: If there are any errors, just keep trying.

    Step 3: Installing PriiLoader
    Start 'PriiLoader 236 Mod' in the Homebrew Channel. After PriiLoader is fully loaded, press + to install. Ignore any 'loader.ini' and/or 'password.txt' errors. After PriiLoader is succesfully installed, you can acces to it by turning the Wii on and off while holding the reset button until the PriiLoader menu appears. Now you need to install some hacks. Go to 'System Menu Hacks'. Install these hacks:
    • Block Disc Updates
    • Block Online Updates
    • Replace Health Screen
    • Auto-Press A at Health Screen
    • Region-Free Everything
    • Remove no copy save file protection
    • Move Disc Channel
    Step 4: Installing WADs
    Start Multi-Mod Manager (MMM) in the HBC. If IOS236 isn't loaded yet, choose 'Load another IOS' and then choos IOS236. In MMM's main menu, choose 'WAD Manager'. Now install some WADs. To install all the WADs, hold + for 2 seconds to select all of them and then press A twice to install all of them.

    Then go further to Step 5 in the spoiler.
