(I have an older Wii, so we installed it on mine, but I don't forsee ever using it, we just did it because we could)
I watched my friend do the hack as another friend took pictures of the process, it's stupid easy. The only snag we had was with the SD card. For some reason, neither of my 8gb SD cards worked in the Wii. We ended up using one of my old 2gb Micro SD cards in an adapter. Not sure what was up with that.
Also, tip, use a wired Gamecube controller, we tried using my Wavebird, but for some reason it wouldn't read it.
