    Hey everyone. With the recent releases of Ghostbusters and Indiana Jones only working with rev13a, I considered a "fix". Since rev13a has some of its own problems (like forcing a reboot every time a game is loaded twice), I figured I could do this: load almost every game with cIOS rev10, any problematic games or games that require a microphone can use cIOS rev13a. I can't seem to figure this out though.

    I am using USBLoader GX and it gives you the option to boot certain games with certain IOSes. I have them all set to 249 (which is cIOS rev10) and the few unworking games I told to use 222. For 222, I tried Hermes' installer but Ghostbusters wouldn't boot. So I then loaded up cIOS rev13a, and when it asks you to use 249, I told it to use 222 instead. I figured this would make cIOS rev13a on 222, cIOS rev10 on 249, and in USBLoader GX, I could tell it to use 249 for everything, and set specific games to use 222.

    This doesn't work at all and I'm not sure why. Is 222 reserved only for Hermes' or something? Was I an idiot for installing Waninkoko's cIOS to 222? I thought what I was trying to do made sense but it's not working. Thanks to anyone who can help!! [​IMG]

    When you run the cIOS rev13a installer and tell it what IOS to use, its just doing that. USING the IOS, not installing to it. All of Waninkoko's rev installers will install to IOS249 regardless. Hermes' cIOS installer will install to either IOS222 or 223. Do most normal games work fine through Hermes' cIOS? If so maybe you can just use that for most games and then just use IOS249 with rev13a for the ones like ghostbusters.

    Ah, I got ya, thanks. There's no way to install Waninkoko's installers to anything other than IOS249? Why is that?
    I wasn't able to get IOS222 or IOS223 to boot any games at all. It may be because of the confusing install process where, first off, I don't even know why there's both IOS222 and IOS223 or what the difference is, plus it asks me all sorts of questions like merging IOS36 with IOS37 or something else that confuses the heck outta me. So maybe I'm doing something wrong there?

    Anybody? I have determined I will use cIOS 222 or 223 (I'd still like to know what the difference is please) but I still don't know what to merge with what when installing.

    Also, does putting the error 002 fix and anti 002 fix ON at the same time for all games in USB Loader GX break any games? Or can it only do good?

    I will probably just use rev13a for Rock Band/Guitar Hero since that supports the devices and Ghostbusters.

    You have the wrong idea about a lot of things, I will only tell you to read more stop installing ioses and stsart reading the software you are using beofer you break something, and it would seve you right for not knowing anything about it before doing it

    HAPPY BRICKING

    You've failed to realize I've been googling for a damn day and a half and can't find a single place to help me determine what the hell the difference is between Hermes cIOS222 and cIOS223 nor why or why not I would choose different "merges" when installing it.

    Isn't that what this forum is for? I've done enough research to get my Wii running games from USB so don't act like a complete jerkoff and wish my console bricks when I ask a question you might know the answer to.
