    Hi, i´m new to the wii forums and have thought of modding my Wii

    Please don´t facepalm me on it cause i´m an a complete N00B on this forums.

    So here is my question

    Isn´t there any softmod for the wii in which the Wii will not be installed anything,
    such as an flashcart for the DS in which will not make anything to the DSi,
    or like the Free McBoot for the PS2 in which the softmod is in the Memory Card.

    Thanks, Naruses

    Oh look, there's your problem.

    Anyways, if you just want to play some Homebrew (Emulators, Games, etc.) without installing anything, you can do that with Bannerbomb. But I can tell you, it will get boring and annoying.

    But from your examples, it seems like you only want one thing: Playing FrEEz GUMez, and for pirating, you need to install things. Hardware and/or Software-wise. If you don't want to SoftMod your Wii, and be as clean as possible Software-wise, get a ModChip (Wode, WiiKey, whatever). It's pretty safe, Nintendo seems not to be able to detect them, and no need to mess with the Software of your Wii. If you want the smallest amount of modding, get Sneek. You'll need to install BootMii, but that's it, nothing more is needed to install (though SNEEK is pretty advanced, and you'll probably fail to set it up right).

    Bannerbomb, but you can't do any USB Loaders or stuff like that

    Don't you still need to install Waninkoko's and Herme's cIOS's in order to use an USB loader?

    Install Bootmii IOS/BOOT2 and use SNEEK, it'll let you run all your homebrew and ISO files with minimal hacking.

    It takes less than 30 minutes to mod a Wii to the point where you can run back-ups from a hard drive.

    Just like TRushInfo said "stop being a pussy."

    Mod-Chips like Wode or d2sun are a good solution for you.

    I doubt someone who wants no trace of third party software in his wii nand will be happy at soldering hardware into it.

    This is actually the point where you should use Google and Youtube. So, why not do it?
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    @All others: You know that you basicly just repeated my answers, right?

    If you do feel like softmodding your Wii (which is really easy by the way), this link will have everything you need: http://sites.google.com/site/completesg/ It's really easy to follow and well put together.

    Ignore the people calling you a pussy, their comments are not in the least bit constructive. Seriously, if you're going to insult someone for no reason why post? It's really lame. I literally read another topic where someone done exactly the same thing a few minutes ago. Some people need to grow up.

    Stop linking to PussieLoader. It may be a fun name, but it won't "temporary" enable Backups. You would still need a cIOS for that. All it currently does is giving you the ability to copy protected saves. SO STOP LINKING TO IT!

    @naruses: I saw that coming. So yeah, enjoy your retail Wii (is this even possible [​IMG]?).
