    I need some help, I haven`t use my Wii in a long time and today i decided to turn it on. when i went into the homebrew channel it said that there was an update i was like oh cool. i pressed it and after it downloaded it and all, it just sat in a black screen, I was wondering if anyone could help me out to solve this problem, thanks in advanced.

    1: What black screen do you get? On the homebrew channel or on the wii system menu when you turn it on?

    You need to install the latest version of the Homebrew Channel (1.0.8) while you already have IOS58 on your Wii. This is so the Homebrew Channel uses IOS58 instead of IOS61. It will tell you at the top of the page what IOS it is using and what version of the Homebrew Channel you are using. If you are having trouble updating through the wireless update feature, try downloading the latest version manually.
