This isn't a tutorial, but a look at why you should soft-mod your Wii and the benefits of loading games from a usb hard drive with apps such as WiiFlow 2.2. I created this video/channel out of frustration since there were not many clear or concise guides on the net when I soft-modded my on Wii.
There's plenty of reasons why you might want to mod our Wii, maybe you want to play backed-up games from a hard drive or usb stick, maybe you want all of the old Nintendo (Nes or Snes) games at your disposal so you can kick back and ol' school it with the Wii remote. Other reasons for modding your Wii could be the ability to use your Wii to stream your movies, homevideos, and music from your Mac or PC to your Wii without the wires and aggravation.
What ever your reason may be for modding your Wii, it's never been easier than now. With only a few basic tools (which you may already own), a couple hours of time, and a desire to get the most of your Wii console, you can soft-mod your Wii and be the happiest gamer in your neighborhood. No opening your console, no chips, no soldering, just a little bit of copy-and-paste knowledge and you're on your way!
I'll put out a video for every thing I've applied to my own Wii including: Adding The Homebrew Channel Backing up your nand Installing and configuring Priiloader How to block online and disk updates that could harm your modded Wii Restoring the Trucha Bug Patching your ios Adding a custom ios Installing WiiFlow and other usb loaders for playing games from a hard drive Backing up and copying games to a usb storage device Installing media streamers Installing Nes, Snes, Sega, and Atari emulators Adding channels to your home screen for these different apps adding custom themes and any future add-on that may come out.
This video is the first of my "Wii soft-modding series" in which i explain with clear, step-by-step videos and I promise to use a tripod instead of shaking the camera around like chocolate milk. If you want to request a video of any stage of the soft-modding process, feel free.
Be sure to subscribe to the channel so you can get the latest info on future updates and features, share the video and help soft-mod the entire planet. Once you start the soft-modding process, if you use my guides, stick with my guides. Mixing instructions from different sources can cause major problems and you could easily get confused along the way. I try to think 2 steps ahead and provide you with all the needed tools and links to download the files you need for this to work. Over time, different Homebrew apps may change or become out-dated or replaced with newer ones, all of my videos come from the same Wii console without any change to ensure accuracy when you apply these techniques. If any links become broken by their creator, I'll try to catch it and replace them with working links.
