    I have a 4.1u Wii (was virgin before i started messing with it). and the main thing i want to be able to do with it is install

    i followed the guide posted here

    everything worked fine until i tried to play a vc game installed with wad manager 1.7 loaded through HBC. the game installed fine, but when trying to play it, all i got was a black screen. im pretty sure its an IOS issue, but 1) im not positive and 2) i wouldnt know which or how to fix.

    at this point i have restored back to the NAND backup i made and am ready to try anything.

    Load that vc wad in showmiiwads and check to see what ios it runs on. Then install an updated version of that ios.

    excellent idea mauifrog, I just did the same thing for the same exact reason a couple of days ago.
