    I've deleted the guide as most people who try to install it lack the required knowledge and risk having they're wiis bricked. Also all links have been taken down so using the links from the posts below won't work.

    Guess you missed the chew out of the last guy to make a tutorial..... I'm not gonna bother to explain why its wrong to make a tutorial for something you had nothing to do with. I'm just going to stop working on completing this. Kinda sad I almost had the video issues fixed and out of region loading was a snap thanks to preloader.

    I just made a tutorial because I thought it would help people. I'm not trying to take any credit for this.

    Well i guess you'll be the responsable for the massive bricks, but at least you should know:

    1)cIOS aren't patched to IOS249, the cIOS in CIOSCORP are the same as in your Wii but with the DIP7 included, IOS249 is a copy of IOS36 with DIP7 and placed in other space, that's all.

    2)To uninstall, is not enough to just run cIOS Downgrader, cause it only install IOS30, SysMenu, MIOS and BC, all of your altered IOS will be still altered with this, what you need is to install the normal IOS'es back again, or to simply update from the Wii Settings...!!! [​IMG]

    Not simple. You will have to do all the fixes to restore signing bugs etc if you upgrade to 3.4 in order to get back to 3.2.

    Starfall works or doesn't?

    "it should still work"... leaves a lot up in the air. It's the lack of knowledge knowing what's going to happen versus I really don't bloody know.

    I was wondering if cIOS Downgrader would completely uninstall.

    So should anyone doing this still do a NAND dump prior to installation of CIOSCORP?

    That was the suggestion on the original thread.

    PS- I really wish that he could of waited for Wiiblaster / Iron mask etal to do a proper guide

    as they know better than anyone how to do this and what exactly it does.

    yes you should still do a nand dump so in worse case scenario's you have EVERYTHING on your wii in a nice little dump that you can extract, re-pack, and re-install from. that way you know your wii will be exactly like it was before. This is also why we were waiting for preloader to release, so there wouldn't be any real danger. As soon as the dol loading was fixed a proper tut prolly would have been made, and i see ether is going to make it, including all steps to backup from nand, and restore in case of problems.
