Hi I purchased a new Wii for my daughter for Christmas, and All I could think of was to hack it before the big day, and thanks to your post here on how too I believe I have succeed. I have spent the past 2 weeks reading and downloading only to hit a wall and not be able to finish. After reading the how to here I can say I think I have it. I just need to prove I can load backups from hard disk and I will be finished. I do have a quick question, I have a fit with the preloader and would like to know if it can be uninstalled? It is going to drive my daughter nuts as it loads first and sometimes hangs and can't get to the main menu. If it is possiable to remove I could use some help. Thanks for the great guide, was the best thing that happened to me all week.
