I have used the following two methods to unlock my Wii. I am not entirely positive I have done it the correct way. I used the the latest LetterBomb hack to install the Homebrew Channel, and then followed the guide here to get everything else working. The programs mentioned in the second tutorial were older versions, I used the newer version of the program and used a trial and error method until it worked. I am able to play my games on USB Loader GX and everything seems to work fine. The only problem I am having now, is after I ripped all of the games I have I started downloading from various torrent sites the games I wanted. I am not sure if this caused an issue with something else. But, I was initially able to get USB Loader GX to my Wii Home Screen. Now I am trying to get other homebrew apps there and my WAD Manager 1.7 is failing with ERROR! (ret = -2011). Any help would be nice. Now I have heard of people doing a Syscheck but I am not sure how to do that. Looking forward to discussing this and getting to the root of the problem. EDIT: had to remove links. First was to LetterBomb latest and the second was to lifehack "Backup and Play your Games on External...."
