Happy Independence Day America! In line with belated news, a new version of Riivolution was released to coincide with the Wii’s new 4.3 system menu update.
To find out what’s new and download the new version, go to RVLution.net’s Riivolution page. The coolest change is that you no longer need an SD card to load hacks, as Riivolution can connect to RiiFS without one. Expect an updated RiiFS guide soon, once I’ve unpacked everything and set up my Wii.
