I thought I was smart,Guess Not.
I thought at one time I was smart when I bought a wii in Dec '08 & installed homebrew on it.Things were great for about 9 months or so,then some of the games my wife brought home from the library wouldn't load[black screen].So I started searching the net for help & found this awesome site loaded with lots of great information.Unfornatly the people posting these threads are incredibly smart,or I am incredibly stupid.Well,maybe not completly stupid,but definatly in need of some learning.From reading lots of posts,I think the IOS is outdated.The sad part is,I don't know exactly what I currently have.I do know that I have wii ver 3.2u,hb 1.0.1,which I did upgrade to 1.0.6,but as far as the IOS,the only info I saw was,IOS36v.4.18.
I've seen a few posts on what I think I need,and maybe how to install it,but I want to find out where to look to verify what IOS's I have. I'll keep reading until I feel more confident about what needs to be done.Sorry about the length of my first post,I'll try to be more concise next time.Any advice would be appreciated.Remember,type slow,I ain't too bright!
