So is there any solutions for firmware 4.0 without cIOS installed before?
Nope - been watching like a hopeless hawk since day 1 of the 4.0 update.
Okay... this is a LONG shot, but it is worth a try...
Go HERE, download the required files, and attempt Steps 03-07.
If this works, in theory, you should then be able to install "cIOS36 rev.8"
Please try, and post your results!
Good Luck!! =)
did not work for me, wad manager 1.3 wouldnt load from the homebrew channel anymore on firm 4.0 without the cios
WADManager v1.3 should load fine, from The Homebrew Channel, on System Menu v4.0, without cIOS.
wad manager needs a cios to fuction properly and if it isnt there it wont work
Okay... Now I'm curious.
If this is true...what cIOS does WADManager require?
It requires a CIOS 36 installed as CIOS 249, this is the one from Waninkoko's CIOS38 rev8 installer.
is there any way to downgrade or install cIOS from 4.0 if I had a modchip.
I stupidly upgraded now fnd i cant install WADS as i never had a cIS installed
could i downgrade using a 3.2U WAD from 4.0
atm there is no way to install any wads with firm 4.0 without the right cios
This doesn't make any sense! I was using WADManager before I even installed cIOS! The first time I installed cIOS was when I installed Backup Launcher! PLUS... I used WADManager to install "cIOS36 rev.8"!! SO... If what you are saying is true, I would've had to have "cIOS rev.8" installed before using WADManager! That's IMPOSSIBLE, since you use WADManager to install "cIOS36 rev.8"!!
I'm having this problem too!
I'm on 4.0U but i didn't installed any cIOS before!
I only have the HBC...
Now, what do I do?
any way to downgrade via WAD if im in sys menu 4.0 back to a 3.2 ???
While the wad manager RUNS, it will not install any wads to my knowledge. Tried using the files you suggested but you will get a ticket error when installing any WADS since they have been blocked with the 4.0 update if you didnt have CIOS installed. While it may work with 3.3/3.4, not with 4.0 unfortunately
I believe I was one of the first "victims". I did the Kongsnutz guide and felt jaded afterwards 'cause there was not a real warning for the dangerous situation here, namely that of not having a cIOS installed would render your Wii useless for WAD-installing.
As I expected there are more "victims" as days go by.
It's sad, but at least Wii games (without a trucha patch) still work as usual and HBC still works.
It's only wad-installing that is the major problem.
But I read that Marcan from Team Twiizers has announced that they're already busy with new methods for bypassing security. I believe they will mainly focus on their bootmii application, that should work on any firmware.
After a few days I finally have faith in new developments and I guess it will eventually be like the NDS situation, where at first we were all flashing our DS with a toothpick wrapped in foil and in the end there was just a DS cart that did the bypass-job.
I'm sure there will be good times ahead, just sit tight and have faith...
Well I think mots of the victims were behind-the-times so to speak. I think most of us who were confused either had hardware mods or were on 3.2 all along without updating. The CIOS part SPECIFICALLY mentioned instructions for firmware 3.3/3.4... which I figured didn't apply to me since I was on 3.2. And yes, while I still think it wasn't very clear, i still should have waited even longer to make sure I was doing things correctly and ASK about the ciosv7 which was a little bit confusing...
I do appreciate that the guide has been updated however, for those who may be in a similar situation as I was, so they don't make the same mistake.
So now we sit and wait, and hope for the best
...and that probably happened because I was angry as hell at Kongsnutz for not making a better tutorial.
This is the only quote that worries me -- it's from the kongnutz install thread - someone mentioned this:
OK, this maybe stupid.
Can I install the CIOS36 v8 dol from HBC and fix the problem?
Is there a way that we can convert wads to dols and run through HBC?
Or maybe a solution will come up and we could install wad directly to a SD card from our PC, then put the SD card on Wii with system menu 4.0, go to the SD card menu and.. voila
