    Hello, noob question here! Have read the stickies but can't seem to find a definitive answer to this:

    Hypothetically speaking, if one were to download a Wii title such as, say, Mario Galaxy from the NUS, using something like, say, Funkii-UI, would that require vWii modding as well?

    Thanks in advance!

    It doesn't boot standard vWii but (as far as I know) has a bootloader in the Wii VC itself that can be patched to disable signature checks without modding vWii. I believe this is how Wii VC injects work.
    For unmodified Wii VC it doesn't matter as the signatures are still intact (only the Wii U ticket is invalid but that's patched by CFW)

    Thanks! I guess my mistake was that I didn't realise that Wii games downloaded from NUS are actually loaded as Virtual Console games, not Virtual Wii games. In that case I would have realised from the Community Noob Guide that:
