    Hello, I have recently installed the WiiGator Backup Launcher in the Homebrew channel of my Wii.

    I read the compatibility list quite thoroughly, and I noticed that in order for: Sonic Rings [NTSC], to work, I need to download and apply the CIOS_FIX.WAD.

    How do I do this? I have downloaded the file from the link provided on Rapidshare, what do I do from there?

    move it to wad on your SD
    and start the wad manager 1.21
    At least I heard this is the way ^^

    While we're on the subject, do you need both the CIOS FIX and the old CIOS5/6?

    I installed the cios fix then it will load sonic and the secret rings.
    with out the cios fix you will just get stuck at the loading screen when it first starts [​IMG]

    the cios fix can be installed with out having the old CIOS5/6 installed first
    because i heard its the same thing just patched [​IMG]
    hope this helps you out

    It the same as what WiiShizzza had said [​IMG]
    make a folder called WAD on your SD card
    put the CIOS_FIX.WAD file in that folder.
    then used the wad manager or wad installer to install
    the CIOS_FIX.WAD file to your wii
    then your done
    if your still having trouble i will make a file with with every thing u need to install it

    good luck IT CAN BE DONE XD

    I will ask though if this is your first time running a back up? if so u will have to use dvdx and patch iso249 after installing CIOS_FIX.WAD
    or it won't read your back up disk [​IMG]
    though it won't hurt to patch it again any ways.

    Yes, I have ran one backup, No More Heroes [NTSC]. I have already set DVDC to ISO249, thanks.

    Thank you both, WiiShizzza and mdlmemorybank
