hacking the wii
  • insert your sd card into the wii.
  • turn on your wii and access the wii message board.
  • click on the red letter with the bomb. you should be able to find it by going back one or two days.
    • screenshot
  • you should see a warning message about scams. press 1 when you're able to.
  • you should now see the hackmii installer. select continue.
  • select the homebrew channel and select install the homebrew channel.
  • wait for the homebrew channel to install.
  • quit out of the hackmii installer.

congratulations, your wii is now softmodded! enjoy installing homebrew.
