Hey guys. I just learned the world of Wii modding which of course led me here. I wish I would have seen this forum before paying for and D/L Wii Unlocker Ultra. It was too simple and now I have no idea how to install new IOS's, cIOS's, WADs etc. I have no idea what versions IOS I have either. Hoping to learn a lot from you guys. Baby steps. Just wish I could get to IOS38 rev 17 and install Neogamma so my kids could play Super Mario Brothers!
