Picture of Softmod any Wii (Version 1.0 - 4.3)
What does softmodding a wii do?
Well the answer to that question is can play backups of games if you lost your original games...(Like I do) You can play N64, SNES and SEGA console games on your wii! With the appropriate emulators...and you can use homebrew applications (There are loads of them Then you can also unlock the hidden DVD movie player, if you have a version older than 2010, or if its newer, then you can unlock the USB movie player!

This is a 100% legal! (Unless you go and download pirated games,even though you don't have the original games...) (So don't do that!)

This softmod/hack works for any wii! Old Wii's, New Wii's, VIrgin Wii's, Korean Wii's, Japanese WIi's, Softmodded Wii's, Hardmodded Wii's etc...

Password = NOT-A-PIRATE (This is the password for any downloaded files)

Softmoding can brick your wii, this is very highly unlikely. Accept this fact or stop now.

It works with 4.3u/e/j/k as well!

Never Ever Ever Update Your Wii From Nintendo

Here is a video of some of the cool things you can do once you have hacked your wii!
Sometimes the video gets a bit blurry and distorts a bit but that is because of my bad camera...Sorry about that :(

So if you want to start softmodding your wii, then lets gets started!

Help me! I bought a 4g sd card and have gone through these steps and have not gotten a letterbomb message. I am so trying to do this.. I don't understand what I did wrong. I cannot access the files on my sd card when I put it in the wii.

I believe it has to be 2 gig or less and it can not be a sd hc, sd 2 gig I believe

hope this helps

Also, I updated my Wii recently, Homebrew Channel & everything else remained installed. I guess the most recent one just disabled WFC.

Slight mistake in this post. I bought my Wii when it just released and I'm able to play backups from my hard drive using Wii flow or CFG loader. Otherwise, nice post with working links...

I followed the steps and I either got error 004: Corrupted file or nothing showed up at all! On the letter thingy do you cut red/blue wire (whats the difference) and which of the 4.3U, 4.3E, 4.3J, or 4.3K is american? HELP MEEEEE!!!
P.S the youtube videos are blocked by family saftey so please don't use them

4.3U is US so you should use that version.

Cut the red wire not the blue wire as the blue wire would result in the wrong download....

Hopefully this will solve all your troubles :)
Why do they have the red/blue wire thing? The site isn't very descriptive, something even I could whip up in a few seconds. What does the blue wire download, anyway? Thank You!

the red wire/ blue wire buttons were put there just to mess with people, ive done this twice both clicking the blue wire and the red wire, and both times worked fine. The errors you are experiencing are more than likely caused by inappropriate stacking of files, to the point where your homebrew channel cannot even define what it has to read...

vishalapr (author)  waterlubber2 years ago
don't know...I found the red/blue thing annoying as well...
OK. I followed the instructions and instead of getting Error 004: Corrupt File, I got a bunch of empty channel thingys and nothing happened. Is nintendo evil?

Just want to inform all folks who live outside US that Nintendo Wii is a great media Player. If you want to access Netflix and other streaming stations on your Nintendo Wii you can use UnoTelly as I do to get around the geo block.

Wii noob here. just got one for the kids. Considering doing this. If i use the guide without gamedisk does the sd card i use have to remain in the Wii?
vishalapr (author)  grondinm3 years ago
Its both yes and a for the homebrew apps and ggames, they can be run only with the SD card in...but for wil games, you do not need an SD card...but first install wiiflow via the SD and the play with USB or backup disks of the games you own :)

sorry about noob question but Ijust recently got a wii , does softmodding allows me to play downloaded games from the net?
vishalapr (author)  jcsantos3 years ago
Yes! But you are given this ible to only play backups and hbc games, and its legal...but if u want to play downloaded wii games, this hack will allow u to do that but it is do it at yr own risk...
