hi, everyone. i haven't been following the wii scene much since Brawl. and man, back then, it was so easy. all i had to do was update the wiikey firmware. i read through alot of pages in the NSMB topic, and the easiest solution for my situation is to get the Gecko thing running. however, i have never done this before, since i ignored most of the things requiring SD cards, until now. but, i'm having a hard time finding/understanding tutorials to help make this work (i don't want to blindly trial and error, and risk bricking the wii or anything). most of the tutorials are too "mumbo jumbo" for my technological expertise. can someone post a step-by-step in how to install Gecko on my wii? (if that's the correct term to use) --------------------- i'm **hoping** it will be something simple, like this, step 1, format SD card step 2, drag X, Y, Z files to SD card, and put it in Wii step 3, open Wii, Gecko will auto install step 4, put NSMB in Wii, and play but i'm prepared for the worst. ------------------ edit: i just read this topic http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=199432 do i really have to do all that? looks so complicated.
