    Alright guys, first of all let me apologize in advance for my English cause I can't speak it fluently yet as it is not my main language.
    So,I'll start talking about the argument.
    As I recently wrote on my presentation, I've been (and still am) a Nintendo fan since ever. However,it's been a while since I played a N console,I sold many years ago my Wii with all my games and most recently my 3DS with games. I still have my GBAs advance,Gamecube and N64 because they are a piece of my childhood. Fact is, I "betrayed" my beloved N for Sony with buying a PS4. No regrets tho.
    Today,I feel like I miss playing all those old Nintendo games that I always enjoyed years and years ago,so I'm convincing myself to buy a Wii,the black one they sell in bundle with Mario Kart Wii on Amazon. I will most definetly hack it (never had done before),but I need to ask something here because you all look very expert in subject.
    Back in the days,to hack the Wii you needed a copy of Zelda TP (that I have) in order to get the homebrew channel. Do you still need to do such a process?
    Second question,when I'll hack the Wii,will I be able to use it like a sort of an emulator to play GBA,N64,GC and (of course) Wii games?
    These are the first things I need to know.
    Thank you to everyone who reads and takes its time to answer!

    No, you don't, you can use the HackMii installer and the Letterbomb exploit, which isn't too hard ^^
    I'm tired so can't explain or link to somewhere right now.

    There's loads of emulators for Wii too, don't worry!

    Thank you for your kind question,@Touko White!
    So no more TP method for homebrew,great xD
    I still need to know another thing: how do I get emulators on my Wii then?
    Also,can every Wii get hacked without problems even if you buy it from amazon?

    SD card that is formatted to FAT32 (in other words, any up to 32 GB)
    That's it for hardware-related matter.

    Get a Classic Controller and GC Controller too if you want to play emulators Wii remote might be awkward for some.

    I already own a GC controller so that won't be a problem I think..
    Last question: what do I have to search for a video tutorial of the process (hacking the wii)?

    Should be relevant today.
    Since you're from Italy, make sure to use 4.3e when downloading the exploit.

    If you;re starting from scratch, Once you get Homebrew installed using the LetterBomb then I'd reccomend just downloading the WiiFlow Masterpack and plopping the whole thing onto your SD card. It includes everything you need, from a Loader to Nintendont and all Emulators.

    I think. There will be another step if you want to add WiiFlow to your Wii's home Channel screen instead of going through Homebrew channel all the time.
