    how to mod your Wii, etc?

    I keep hearing of RegionFrii and BrickBlocking games and stuff but I'm not exactly sure what I'm supposed to do with all this. So I get a Rom then I have to use some BrickBlocker thing to patch it and THEN burn it? I dunno, is there a guide out somewhere on all the information you need to know before modding your Wii?

    PROTIP: Pirated Wii games aren't usually referred to as ROMs, despite being copied from read-only media. They're normally called ISOs, or Wii "backups."

    RegionFrii can patch the ISO to change the region coding.
    BrickBlocker removes the update from an ISO

    Heh yeah, I've tried Google, but most of the information is pretty dated now. Is there no website or something that I can go to that would have the information on all the different software, etc? And when i buy a game and want to make a backup what software would I need? I plan on using the d2ckey, not the Wiikey (where I know they have the SD Card backup mechanism).

    Yeah, I got that covered. I got a D2C Chip so it's either Argon or D2cKey... I've been debating in my head for a while now and keep hearing both sides cheering for their chip but decided on D2CKey after SSBB working on it. Argon's lack of Gamecube support, which is a big factor on my part (Aus Games, NTSC Console) made me go with the D2CKey (and it's curious ability to be flawless so far).

    Now as I'm waiting to get it modded I want to make sure I know exactly how to burn the games and everything properly. Is there a website that covers all of the steps you have to go through before burn the ISO?

    another option also is the d2pro for d2c chipsets.

    Well i would say. Dont get the D2CKey. Get the D2Pro instead which is made from the same team.

    Or get the Argon.
