Stop following you tube videos! They fail a LOT. Use the guide in my signature for softmodding any wii. Follow the directions exactly and you will be fine.You really won't understand everything unless you read a lot on this site.
hey everyone, i modded my wii and it works fine..however i dont know what i did and all these terms people talking about on wiihack such Cios and Ios and all that. could someone explain that to me so later on, i can update my stuff and not look confused when reading these forums..
For example, what did i do? i just followed the insturction on this video [HMN is really a nerd, stealing stuff from our site, failtube link removed]
what is my cios right now? did i do a soft mod? i dont know, im just a normal gamer who dont have much money

DON'T follow failtube!
you can run a syscheck to see what you have installed (ios, cios) (link in my signature)
if you didn't install a modchip, yes you softmodded
thanks a lot man, i would definitely read it, but could you tell me what i did on that youtube video and from there, i can start understanding everything. Reason why i asked is because i have several games and it works, but then i came to wii party and sniper elite. It showed on disc channel and when i click start,it went black screen.. read a forum talking about updated ios or something, what do i do?

you should follow the guide mentioned above, follow it all, then you will know you have softmodded properly, you might also understand more after following it.
You should be using a loader (such as neogamma) to load your games, NOT the disc channel (sounds like you installed something called darkcorp, which is NOT advised unless you know exactly what you are doing).
You might also want to take a look here: Wiihacks - Nintendo Wii Hacks Community - Forum Rules especially the section on piracy.
thanks dave and everyone
My last question, i know you guys view me as another annoying newb, but we all been there before when we dont know. even though i have my wii modded from the youtube, can i start from scratch again using the direction on the links you guys provided or will that brick it
