How to Softmod / Jailbreak a Nintendo Wii & Play Backups & Emulators [ep. 59]



Like the title says….

Please use this as a visual supplement to the Complete Softmod Guide.

The resource there is COMPREHENSIVE, so alot of questions can be answered there.

I’ve followed up the video with this video to answer some of the questions and issues some have been encountering.

OK, I just uploaded to my Google Drive- all the downloaded files for Multi Mod Manager, the 3 GX emulators, d2x_cios, and USB Loader GX. Just unzip the file to your root directory of your SD Card. Yes, you can use up to 256 GB SD cards. You will need to download the Letterbomb. And you will need to run d2x_cios to get the cios wad files. You can skip this and just download the CIOS automatically by following the directions on the Complete Softmod Guide. I’ve included the forwarder apps for FCEUGX and SNES9X. You will need to run Multi Mod Manager to install the included forwarders for USB Loader GX and Genesis Plus GX. I’m also including a link just for Multi Mod Manager. BTW, you will need to download and the Sega CD bios if and put it into the “bios” folder that’s in the “genplus” folder on the root directory. Have fun!

    I have a 4GB non-HC card specifically because it was the largest you could use before the Wii added SDHC support. Since those are rare and work anyway, there really is no distinction needed unless someone is on very old firmware without SDHC support or doing something low-level that doesn't work on SDHC. In that case, the only distinguishment needed is that it needs to be a non-HC SD card.

    So I don't have to pay to softmod, I can do it myself in 30 minutes! Neat! One question, when i do all this you showed, can i play wii games that i put from my pc onto an usb?

    WAS able to softmod with these instructions and they were very clear. I will say that the final bit about downloading game iso's and issues regarding file types and how to sort it on a flashdrive are not clear. You didnt have to show where to download them from but you couldve went over the logistics of organizing it. My apologies if you addressed this in your follow up video

    OK, I just uploaded to my Google Drive- all the downloaded files for Multi Mod Manager, the 3 GX emulators, d2x_cios, and USB Loader GX. Just unzip the file to your root directory of your SD Card. Yes, you can use up to 256 GB SD cards. You will need to download the Letterbomb. And you will need to run d2x_cios to get the cios wad files. You can skip this and just download the CIOS automatically by following the directions on the Complete Softmod Guide, but you'll need to set up the WiFi on the Wii, or use a broadband adapter. I've included the forwarder apps for FCEUGX and SNES9X which you can see as I've edited the icons with "installer." You will need to run Multi Mod Manager to install the included forwarders for USB Loader GX and Genesis Plus GX in the "forwarder_wads" folder. I've also uploaded Multi Mod Manager as a standalone if you want just that. BTW, you will need to download a Sega CD bios if you want to play Sega CD games with GenPlus GX and put it into the "bios" folder that's in the "genplus" folder on the root directory. Have fun!

    I cannot find a HDD that works on my Wii, I have 3 of them, they only get recognized by my Loaders when connected to the USB port nearest the middle of the Wii, but the games wont play when launched through the Loader. But none of the drives recognize on the USB port nearest the edge of the Wii, which is the port everyone says needs to be used, all the drives I have are on the compatible list. And the port nearest the edge does work though, plugged a USB thumb drive into that port and it read

    Hey guys! I'm trying to softmod my wii, but there is no top flap on the wii as mentioned in the video. It's a mario kart edition. I think german, but cant tell you what is the exact model number yet. So no controller, nor memory slots on the top. Cant even flip it up. I'll write it when i get near the console. Can you help me out? Cheers!
    @The SegaHolic Thanks for the upload! 🙂

    Pretty sure jailbreak is exclusive to the iOS hacking scene, with Cydia. I remember people passing around that term like hot cakes back in the day when this stuff was just getting popular, and most of the people who used them had no clue what the hell they were talking about
