    Since many Newbies are confused which cIOS they should install, especially what base IOS they should use for both, Hermes and Waninkokos cIOS, I decided to make a declaration . All Newbies should stop asking same questions again and again and do exactly what I am saying here.

    The goal is to install following IOS(cIOS):

    IOS202[60]-v65535 (v5 of Hermes cIOS) = USB2.0 for MPlayer, WiiXplorer and stuff
    IOS222[38]-v65535 (v5 of Hermes cIOS) = Stable IOS with the ability to install Wads
    IOS223[37]-v65535 (v5 of Hermes cIOS) = For use with Music Games with USB devices like Rock Band, Guitar Hero...
    IOS224[57]-v65535 (v5 of Hermes cIOS) = Better speed for USB loading. However, some Games might not work

    IOS249[57]-v19 (rev19 of Waninkokos cIOS) = Recommend by Waninkoko. Improves speed for USB loading. However, some Games might not work.
    IOS250[38]-v65535 (rev19 of Waninkokos cIOS) = Stable IOS with the ability to install Wads

    What do we need?
    - Hermes cIOS Installer v5
    - Waninkokos cIOS Installer rev19
    - BlueDump Alpha 3
    - Wad Manager
    - AnyTitle Deleter Mod

    If you dont have installed any cIOS yet, follow any hacking guide to trucha patch your IOS36.

    We are going to install Waninkokos cIOS first.

    1) Launch cIOSX Installer rev19 via the Homebrew Channel
    2) Choose IOS249 (or your trucha patched IOS36 if you dont have any cIOS installed yet)
    3) The Installer will ask you what base IOS you would like to choose. Choose IOS57 and let the Installer finish the job. If you dont have a Internet Connection, download a IOS57-64-v5661.wad via NUS Downloader and put it in the Root directory of your SD Card.

    4) Now launch BlueDump Alpha3 via the Homebrew Channel
    5) Go and find IOS249 in the System Titles and pack it to a Wad

    6) Move your IOS249[57] Wad to your Wad directory

    7) Now launch AnyTitle Deleter Mod via the Homebrew Channel
    8) Go to System Titles and delete both, IOS249 and IOS250

    9) Now launch cIOSX Installer rev19 via the Homebrew Channel
    10) Choose IOS36
    11) The Installer will ask you what base IOS you would like to choose. This time, choose IOS38 and let the Installer finish the job. If you dont have a Internet Connection, download a IOS38-64-v3867.wad via NUS Downloader and put it in the Root directory of your SD Card.

    12) Lauch AnyTitle Deleter Mod and delete your IOS249.

    13) Lauch Wad Manager via the Homebrew Channel.
    14) Choose IOS250 and ignore the NAND emulation stuff. Browse through your Wad directory and install your dumped IOS249[57]-v19.wad.

    Now we have IOS249[57] for USB loading and IOS250[38] for Wad Manager.



    We still have to install Hermes awesome cIOS.

    1) Lauch Hermes cIOS Installer v5 via the Homebrew Channel
    2) Choose IOS250 when the screen asks you which cIOS you want to use.
    3) Now install

    a) IOS202 with IOS60 base
    b) IOS222 with IOS38 base
    c) IOS223 with IOS37 base
    d) IOS224 with IOS57 base

    Be happy and enjoy [​IMG]

    So, Hermes' IOS202 will work for MPlayer's USB2.0 support? For some reason had I figured you had to use their particular version of it.

    Heard Hermes 37 is not stable? (or just not working with CFG USB loader) You can install 37 to 250 you know. You can still use the 38 of Hemes

    very helpful, thanks for the information.

    Since I already have Rev19 w/ IOS 57 (done with internet connection wifi) as a base and Hermes V4 installed, do I just skip straight to step 7?

    All the games seem to work well but I like to be updated. I have not tried WAD manager to see if it works yet but I'm assuming it doesn't because I have not done these steps and all the other posts I keep reading.

    Awesome work man!! Thanks a lot!!

    I found it a little bit surprising that I actually trusted a guide written by somebody called "WiiBricker" [​IMG]

    I've got just one question: mPlayer doesn't start anymore since I installed the 202 Ios...do I have to fix something to make it work?

    Guitar Hero 5 doesn't work either, but I guess that's Configurable Usb Loader's fault [​IMG]

    EDIT: mPlayer didn't start because I used a forwarder!

    To my knowledge, IOS223 v4 [38+37] does not handle Rock Band DLC from an SD card correctly, but IOS 223 v5 [37] does.

    Are you talking about the DLC bug when using USB loaders that puts the songs on the Wii memory, transfers to SD, but forgets to delete from Wii memory? If so, is that fixed with v5 (37)?

    ----> Browse through your Wad directory and install your dumped IOS249[57]-v19.wad.

    Can the dumped IOS249[57]-v19 be used on other Wiis or should a new dump be made for each Wii (ie. can I install my IOS249[57]-v19 on my friend's Wii)?

    Thanks.

    Hey thanks for this guide I needed something like this badly, just a quick question so I don't do anything wrong, I have ciosrev14 installed and I'm pretty sure it's trucha patched, I heard deleting Ios like 249 and 250 can brick your wii, I just want to make sure this is not the case and I will go ahead with this. Thanks a lot.
