    Most of these methods should work fine on vWii.
    This is a guide on how to connect to Wiimmfi.
    There are multiple methods on doing this so I'll cover those. If I don't list your method, DM me it and I'll add it to here.

    1. Built In
    Let's start off something basic.
    If your game of choice has a modern/updated modpack for it. It may have Wiimmfi support.
    EX: Project M (Wi-Fi Set), Custom Track Grand Prix Revolution, Brawl Minus, etc.


    2. Gecko Codes
    Certain games like Super Smash Bros. Brawl have a code that allows you to connect to Wiimmfi instead of WFC.
    This is also very easy, especially if you already know how to make a GCT.
    If you don't though, here's how to.
    S1: Go and download codemanager.exe
    S2: Open it and set the game ID to your game's ID and hit "store name/id". The first 3 letters are the main ID, so EX: RUU = Animal Crossing City Folk. The 4th letter means your region [E= NTSC-U, J= NTSC-J, P: PAL]. Then put 01 next to the 4 letters. Name of the GCT doesn't matter.
    S3: Hit "Add a code/comment/category" and type the name of your code then hit "OK".
    S4: Select your new code and on the right side, type your code of choice. I have in the spoiler section the Wiimmfi Patch code for SSBB.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    S5: Once you're done putting the code in. Hit "Export to GCT" at the bottom. Hit "Yes" and export it to your PC's drive.
    S6: Now put your new GCT in sd:/codes/ and launch the game in Gecko OS with SD Cheats set to ON.

    3. ISO Patcher
    You can skip this method if you're using a USB Loader that has a 'Private Server" option.
    You only need to do this if your Wii's disc reader broke.
    You will need an ISO of the game you wanna patch and the ISO patcher for your game.
    There are different ones, one for MKW, one for ACCF, and one for all other ISO dumped games. (This will be focusing on the MKW and Other Games patcher since the ACCF one works differently.)
    S1: Download the patcher and extract the 7z.
    S2: Open the extracted folder and go to the OS folder that is for your OS. (EX: Windows)
    S3: Now drag and drop your game ISO onto the wiimmfi-patch file (Dot bat is you are using Windows, dot sh if you are using OS X/Linux.)
    S4. Now just convert your ISO to a WBFS and put it onto your USB and from there load it.

    4. Disc Patcher
    This is for playing games that don't have a modpack that comes with Wiimmfi support.
    S1: Download the Disc Patcher and put it on your SD card.
    S2: Run the patcher in HBC and then insert your game disc if you haven't already.
    S3: Wait a bit then the game will launch. You should be able to connect to Wiimmfi if successful.

    5. Flashhax
    Same reason as above but you don't want to mod your Wii.
    S1: Go onto the Internet Channel, if you haven't downloaded it yet, get it from the Wii Shop Channel.
    S2: Go to chadsoft.co.uk/wiimmfi/.
    S3: Go to your Favorites menu and add the site as a favorite, now reboot Internet Channel.
    S4: Go to Favorites and select the favorite you just created, now insert your disc if you haven't already.
    S5: Same as S3 of Method.

    And that's it. I hope you guys can finally play Wiimmfi now. Here's a few notes to give though.
    1: If you try to play Mario Kart Wii on Wiimmfi on a new console, it will give you 23899. Just simply wait a week after getting 23899. If you try to connect in MKW before a week as passed. You will get other 238XX errors. Check wiimmfi.de/error to see how much longer you have to wait. For other games however, this doesn't happen.
    2: The ISO Patcher method is also needed for Wiimmfi on Dolphin.

    3: If you haven't used your Wii in a while and try to connect to Wiimmfi, you may get Error 60000. That means that your save has a WFC friend code that's not in Wiimmfi. The usual way to fix it is to delete your save or at least profile. In Mario Kart Wii's case, there's a code that removes the PID from the license without removing anything else from it. http://wiki.tockdom.com/wiki/Clear_Profile_ID

    Very nice and short, though no mention of error code 60000...?

    Using USB Loader GX at least only requires the loader. It has built-in Wiimmfi patching.

    @banjo2 If you get Error 60000, that means your save has a Nintendo WFC (old servers) FC, in order to connect to Wiimmfi. You may need to delete your save.

    Yes, I know, but that isn't mentioned in the tutorial. Also, 60000 can be solved on MKW without deleting your profile with a special cheat code.
