    I have been trying all day to get the necessary cIOS to get a usb backup loader to work. I don't have ios249 installed but i can't get it or anyother cios to install. They download fine with the installer but none of them will install. I'm not really sure what I'm doing wrong. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Are you using the rev17 installer to install these? Do you switch it to Network Installation? Or are you trying the WAD installation?
    A little bit more info and maybe we can help ya.

    yea, terrible description... but because I've learned the foreign language of NOOB, i already know the problem


    u didn't uninstall your stub IOS's, use dop ios mod to do that, or use any title delete to delete IOS 222, 223, 249 and 250

    EDIT: did u try maybe.. oh i dunno... following a guide? Or did u just download a cios installer and figure u'd give it a shot? lol

    I've been reading guides all morning but nothing would install is the problem. I was using the network install for rev17 and it would download fine but the install would return error! ret = -2011. Plus I never said anything about pirating games, just wanted to get a back up of twilight princess because i lost the disc two years ago.

    that doesnt work either. Unless I'm not finding the correct wad. Everything on my sd seemed right but still no luck.

    did u restore the trucha bug, or use the fakesign restorer SUCCESSFULLY? Are you selecting to USE IOS36 when your installing the cios (either via wad form or via the installer)?


    here is a description of your error (disregard the "solution")

    what is pirating games mean?
    Do we take over the games ship?
    these terms are lost on me.


    Also, what guide were you following? And did you follow the entire thing? I'd suggest looking at the guide that is a sticky int he Hacking section of the Wii forums, and follow that to the letter. You'll be fine.

    I know what it means, I was joking. Man, that is the second time a blatant joke was interpreted as an honest comment.
    Got to watch what I say around here, everyone is so high strung to tear into n00bs that they forget to read things as more than they seem.
