Welcome to We Hack Wii! 

The Home of Homebrew!

  

This is where we can help each other with all homebrew issues:

Applications, Games, WADs and Much More!

 

OMG Where do I start learning to hack the Wii? The USB Loader page is a good place to start.

 


 

Wii System Menu 4.3 has been released.

As always, DO NOT UPDATE your Wii console through Nintendo.

For more information on the System Menu 4.3 update,

see the WiiBrew System Menu 4.3 article and our Firmware page.

 

Here are some useful threads discussing the new firmware and what to do about it:

Modify Any Wii 4.3 and Below on GBATemp

New Noob Friendly Topic for 4.3

4.3 is out!!! Discussion for wii firmware

4.3 Non-Virgin Softmod Guide - not recommended for 4.2 or below

 

Quick note about 4.3 for those who want the only worthwhile updates released. Use Multi-Mod-Manager to update the Shop Channel to version 20, update IOS56 to the latest version, and install IOS58 to add USB Camera support. That's it.

 


 

Don't upgrade to Wii Firmware 4.2 or 4.3!

Instead of updating your Wii firmware, you can just use Multi-Mod-Manager to update specific channels such as the Nintendo Channel or Wii Shop Channel (which also requires an IOS56 update) without updating the Wii System Menu.  This will allow you to shop with the latest Wii Shop Channel without updating the Wii System Menu.  The main reason you shouldn't update to Wii System Menu 4.2 or 4.3 is that there is no actual update for anything, just annoying ways attempting to prevent Wii hacking.

However, the USB Loader guide DOES work if you are on 4.2 and want to hack your Wii. We are testing 4.3 soon.

You can read about the problems with 4.2 and 4.3 on our Firmware page and the WiiBrew 4.2 and WiiBrew 4.3 articles.

  

Don't use IOS60-Patcher for launching games from SD!

Instead use DOP-Mii to re-install IOS60 (if you are on Wii Firmware 4.0 or 4.1) or IOS70 (if you are on Wii Firmware 4.2) or IOS80 (if you are on Wii Firmware 4.3) with the signature hash check (trucha bug). Also, if you are using Preloader and you "dop" IOS60 or IOS70 or IOS80, remember to reinstall Preloader after "doping"; otherwise, you won't be able to load the System Menu. Instead, boot HBC through Preloader to reinstall it.

Can we all put our heads together and figure out a way to inject rareware games into wads. I want my GoldenEye, Turok, and Perfect Dark already! They all seem to suck balls running the roms on emulators!

paulb said

Not gonna happen unfortunately.
Until the N64 emulator can run them at a decent rate anyways.

Have you tried using the compatibility chart agaist what your trying to play?
http://emulatemii.com/wii64/compatList/
The emu is still in beta stages and most games have issues anyway......

Of course it also depends on the source of your games too.
Are they on HDD & how much space do you have left on it?
Same question goes for an SD card, if space is low it will cause issues.
Last resort, delete the app and make a fresh install.
