    Wasabi fellas,

    since we don't have an ETA on the IOSU exploit/hack yet, i felt like i could use the time to softmod my vWii and probably brick it in the process.

    So...i read the full softmod guide and based on it i assume those are the things i need:

    Did i overlook something? And while we are at it, is there an up to date video tutorial for this that includes also edits made by cyan, just to be on the safe side when i brick stuff and start crying?

    Thanks in advance and have a nice day! :P

    E: duh, typo in the title -_-

    Doesn't need to be a new wiimote, and be prepared to try different SD cards as a lot just don't like to work with doing this exploit.

    Follow this guide:

    I used a mini SD in a adaptor which worked a treat, that was my 3rd card to try.

    It's real easy to install the vwii stuff, just watch that video and take your time.

    well just a warning fake wiimotes might not work same for 3rd partys.

    Flashdrives arent recomended since most of them can be incompatible, an hdd with an y cable or its own power source would be the best thing.

    the sd card i used was a scan disk 2gb sd card worked perfectly for my wii and vwii, still does.

    It was a mini 2GB sandisk In an adaptor, but I tried other Sandisk ones before and they didn't work :D

    You mean especially for the installation progress or in general? The wii mote had decent reviews.

    Yeah, i considered a HDD at first, but the price difference is huge and there was a controversy whether the same HDD could be used for the Wii U as well after the exploit, so i was willing to risk 9 bucks, since someone else here was successfully using a 64gb version.

    Aight, so i'm getting a Sandisk one.

    Duh, back to praying XD

    i mean fake wiiremotes usaly dont work on manny homebrews or even during the instalation process becuase they send out wierd signals, i wouldnt risk using a third party or fake wiimote, my fake wiimote does not work on any wii or vwii homebrew app only inside wii games, my wiiu pro that is fake crashes my homebrew channel when i turn it on on vwii lol.

    Urgh, that's a bummer. I didn't want to invest into an official one if i could avoid it, but guess i will have to do it now. Thanks for the advice!

    Yeah, that's the thing tho. No point in buying a cheap one if i end up needing a proper one anyway to get things going.
