edited August 2010 in Life
BEFORE EVEN CONSIDERING ANYTHING, REALIZE THIS HAS THE RISK OF BRICKING A WII. NEITHER &T NOR I WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR ACTIONS
SWIM will admit he has done this succeccfully with LU 101 Wii (bought on date of release) with firmware 4.2

Want to watch .avi's on yours wii?
Want to p1r4t3 games?
Want to be able to do as you wish with international games?

Prerequisites
First, we need to get some infos off of your Wii:

1. What is your Wii's Firmware:

2. What is your Wii's serial number (this affects your chipset and the ability to play DVD+/-R):

The OLDER THE SERIAL, THE BETTER

Now to actually hacking:


There are several methods of hacking from the Twilight Hack to Bannerbomb

Bannberbomb

Firmware 4.1 and Below, use v1. 4.2 uses v2 4.3 users, please refer to separate post (last post)

Place on an SD card and when go to the SD card menu on the Wii. It will ask you for a prompt and then start the installation process.

Get Bootmii and DVDX when prompted on the installation screen (unless your Drive and chipset suck, even still get BootMii)

If all goes successful, it should look like this:

You now have taken the first step to fully hacking your Wii.
