    Edit: I was attempting to back it up into Save Data not pack it into a Wad. The problem now is I get an Exception (DSI) Occurred message followed by a code dump. Different problem, same crap. Anyone help? Please?

    Edit: Additional specs, Wii Ver. 4.1U, using 8 GB USB for data (Comp won't acknowledge SD)

    That's what I did. I get a Code Dump error every time. Do I need to have System Menu 4.2 for this to work?

    Not sure, it's been awhile since I did this.

    Homebrew Channel says IOS61 when I press Home. While Neogamma says IOS249. And Preloader says IOS v60... If those aren't right cIOS, then how do I check?

    EDIT: After installing Title Lister it says I have IOS60.

    lol, what version of cIOS249 do u have installed? It should work as long as its not a stub IOS... and since u r on 4.1 and not 4.2, i'm assuming u dont have stubs... so not sure whats going on... maybe its the rev of cIOS249 u have installed, but bluedump should work with any rev... but who knows...

    I installed the Waninkoko cIOS249 as per the instructions. Should I delete them with AnyTitleDeleter then reininstall? Or would that potentially brick my console?

    U should be able to reinstall it (it should overwrite whatever u have now)

    if the install fails, then it is safe to delete IOS249 using any title deleter (or even dop-mii) then retry installing it.

    IOS249 is not used in any normal function of the wii. So it doesn't matter if u delete 249, or install a fucked version of 249, u cannot brick from anything u do to IOS slot 249

    I've reinstalled it.
    Went over to BlueDump Alpha3.
    Scrolled over to IOS249 v19
    Hit "1"
    Went over to "Backup to WAD"
    Pressed A

    Instanta Code Dump!

    r u using the fakesigning version?

    Be sure to use the non-fakesigning version... in theory it shouldn't make a difference what version u use, but I've always used the non-fakesigning version to pack cIOS wads (since they're already fakesigned) and its always worked fine.

    I will be shocked if that is the issue... I used blue dump to dump a wad of cios249v19 with base 57... so obviously to do that I had to have it installed and working on bluedump (I can't remember if I used version 2 or 3 at the time though)

    edit: u edited your post, and now mine doesn't make sense! jeez! [​IMG]

    I was under the impression only cIOS249 was required to use bluedump... if u can confirm your cios249 is working in other apps (maybe test a usb loader using cIOS249), then maybe you should bring this bug to nicksassa's attention as I can't think of any other reason why its not working for you.

    in the meantime, if u MUST pack a wad, just dump your nand, and pack whatever u want into a wad using showmiiwads... I know its not a solution to ur problem... but its the best I can do.

    good luck!

    edit: have u been trying to pack the same wad each time? Try packing a different wad/cIOS to see if that makes a difference.

    can u also confirm your cIOS249 is working properly in other apps (try using Neogamma or launch a game from a usb loader with cIOS249)

    if this works, then the problem for sure is not a bad cios249

    I have a problem with BlueDump Alpha 3 too. I hit 1 at sistem titles, then select backup to wad and hit A and then is sais This is not a title. Please use the savedata function. I tried that to but it gives me the same message.
    Anyone know why? I just want to install ciosx rev19 with 2 bases.
