Wii Soft Mod
This post is for Jay. Soft modding any wii is really easy. Follow the instructions in the link below. I suggest using the Super Smash Bros method. This is the only method I have ever used. You will need a SD card. NO larger than 2 Gigs. The Super Smash Bros game disc. Some kind of hard drive. A USB drive will work. Keep in mind that games are anywhere from 2 to 6 Gigs on average. A little software to format your drive. I use http://wbfsmanager.codeplex.com/ Follow the instructions below to the letter. Again I use the Smash Stack. You can find this under Disc Exploits of Part 1 Hackmii Installer.
After that you can do a lot to your wii. Sky is the limit. Enjoy!
