    you can get ios from your game using wufe.
    ios are region free.

    Rather than doing a dump from the NAND, go to the source of where you got most of them, your game discs. They are already in WAD format, and you can dump them from disc to SD using a utility called WUFE.

    Well there's an easier way, depending on what version your Wii is you can probably get them from somewhere around here without the need of backing them up (Which is rather tedious)

    And Wufe does work as buby said and... but I'm not sure about them being region free since PAL and NTSC have different systemmenus (Which are the IOS's)

    Yeah IOS don't change with systemmenu menus, only the systemmenu IOS changes. Every once in awhile they'll add new IOS's with updates but they don't usually change them and haven't changed them yet.

    rather than extracting the ios files from the disk you can extract them from partion 1 of the iso file with wii scrubber.

    ios's arent different for each system menu and firmware.

    in other words you can extract an ios from a game with ancient firmware eg. paper mario and install it on a wii with firmware 3.2 and it would work perfectly

    The best ones are ones that is trucha-bugged.
    The reason you got different version of IOSes is because they are from different discs, thus, they are from different updates, thus, one is lower version one is higher.

    Just install either one of those two, and have a run of IOS Downgrader.

    Dont be a paranoid, else, people wont help you

    I've just done this but in IOS Downgrader after I press A to start installing it says to press A to reboot and doesn't download or install anything [​IMG] . Am I doing something wrong?
