    Hello,

    I don't own a Wii but my brother-in-law bought my nephew a Wii (not the mini) and it will be used by my 5 year old nephew. Since he's always out of the country and my nephew stays with my parents, we are kind of afraid that my nephew would break his Wii disc and Wii itself.

    So here I am looking for a way to hack their Wii and load games from USB.

    1) What is the easiest and safest way to hack the Wii to play USB games?
    2) What is the most kid-friendly USB loader.


    Thanks!!!

    the easiest / safest way is ModMii for Windows.

    #2
    My 2-year-old can run USB Loader GX and WiiFlow (apparently prefers GX, though.) and my 6-year-old sister-in-law runs WiiFlow just fine.

    Either way, once you get it set up just turn on the parental block so they can't go DELETING games (learned that one the hard way.) just install a forwarder channel and they can get in easy enough.

    Only on the computer to download stuff you'll need onto the SD card

    Cool!!!!

    Can you point me to a really noobish guide on how to mod my nephew's Wii (That does not need the Wii to be converted to the net)? Or you could just post instructions here if you like.

    Man that didn't sound right. LOL

    Thanks!!!!
