New to the forums - Hello!
Thanks for all of the useful information that I have had the pleasure of perusing through. I was told about this forum by my buddy Danno (not sure of his username on this site) after asking him a few questions regarding the info in my background (An optional read...obviously) which is listed below.
I have a pre 2008 Wii and I have been running 3.2 and homebrew for a few months now and just recently "up-graded" to 4.0. I got GH5 and Beatles Rock Band for Christmas and can't play them. I went and loaded the newest version of homebrew, bootmii as boot 2 and made a backup of my NAND (I only had 1 bad block!!) following the walk through on this site.
I am currently trying to work my way through priiloader and IOS60-patched.wad so i can go ahead and follow through with loading 4.1 or 4.2 and then hopefully play my new games!
I have found lots of useful info on this site and i am sure i will be able to find much more.
