I have a 4.2u updated system, I am 100% sure of that, I am looking at it now. It has Homebrew channel installed via bannerbomb hack and all is working dandy, I can do the little things that such allows. BUT, when I want to do anything real that needs a new cIOS, it wont work because I cant seem to actually install a custom version. What I mean to say is, that I went through the steps and installed DOP-IOS mod, used that to do something, then installed cIOS38rev17 installer and installed that. It apperently installed everything as it was supposed to, it appeared that everything went smoothly. (BTW I was actually doing this mainly so I could use USB loader GX) BUT, it didnt appear to work when I tried running USB Loader GX, it was complaining about how I dont have 222 or 249 installed...ok w/e I move on thinking maybe the loader is just screwed and used configurable usb loader, didn't work. At this point Im thinking maybe it just didnt install right, so I whent and tried to install an older version that apperently the thing was actually asking for. I attempt to install cIOS36 rev09 installer and install that. BUT that seemed to just hang there and do nothing, music was playing in the background (some heavy metal) and went through the entire song apearing to show me that it had not frozen, though nothing was showing me proof that it hadn't died, so w/e thinking Im crazy ill just let it be for a while just to make sure. Eat some dinner, watch some simpsons, nothing, still some heavy metal running. And all the time my controller lost connection and wouldnt reconnect. At this point Im just getting pissed and no matter what I do cant get this shit to work. Im trying to get it to work before sunday as I am leaving for a small trip, (with the wii, its not really a vacation) Please help, Im just desperate to get this to work and am sick of messing with this crap. I would love to be able to chat with someone who might be able to help, xfire chat is kringle185 as is steam, so is gmail for that matter. Thanks and sorry to make your read all of that.
