Hi everyone, I'm back! Sorry about the delay, what with real life taking first priority and whatnot. Anyways, here is cIOSCORP v3.4: The README has grown since last time, so I've enclosed it into spoiler tags instead of code tags. BE SURE TO READ IT ALL! Warning: Spoilers inside! BE SURE TO READ EVERYTHING IN THIS FILE BEFORE INSTALLING!!! It finally exists! We, da_letter_a & damysteryman, now present to you all: cIOSCORP v3.4! What is it? It's a complete software modification for your Nintendo Wii to allow you to play almost all of your backup burnt Wii and GameCube games via the disc channel without opening your console or having to use a loader application. What's in it? Main Installer: IOS09 = IOS53 v5149 with rev14 DIP IOS11 -> IOS15 = IOS53 v5149 with rev14 DIP IOS17 = IOS53 v5149 with rev14 DIP IOS20 -> IOS22 = IOS53 v5149 with rev14 DIP IOS28 = IOS28 v1293 with rev14 DIP IOS30 = IOS53 v5149 with rev12 DIP + ES_DiVerify Patch IOS31 = IOS31 v3092 with rev14 DIP IOS33 = IOS33 v2834 with rev14 DIP IOS34 = IOS34 v3091 with rev14 DIP IOS35 = IOS35 v3092 with rev14 DIP + ES_DiVerify Patch IOS36 = IOS36 v3094 with rev12 DIP + ES_DiVerify Patch + NAND Permissions Patch IOS37 = IOS37 v3612 with rev14 DIP IOS38 = IOS38 v3610 with rev14 DIP IOS50 = IOS50 v4889 with rev12 DIP + ES_DiVerify Patch IOS53 = IOS53 v5149 with rev14 DIP IOS55 = IOS55 v5149 with rev14 DIP IOS56 = IOS56 v5146 with rev14 DIP IOS60 = IOS60 v6174 with rev12 DIP + ES_DiVerify Patch All IOS have the Trucha Bug restored. Extras Installer: cmios (WiiGator)= mios v4 with WiiGator's GC Backup Launcher embedded but with mios v9's tmd, ticket, and banner info. cmios (waninkoko)= mios v4 with waninkoko's cmios but with mios v9's tmd, ticket, and banner info. cIOS36 rev12 DIP= cIOS36 v3094 with rev12 DIP. Supports Dual Layer discs, but does not fix #001 error properly. cIOS36 rev14 DIP= cIOS36 v3094 with rev14 DIP. Properly fixes #001 error, but does not support Dual layer discs. IOS201 = IOS36 v3094 + Trucha Bug Restored + ES_DiVerify Patch + NAND Permissions Patch. DIP is unmodified. Part of the DVDX Fix. DVDX = DVDX, but runs under the aforementioned IOS201 instead of IOS36. Part of the DVDX Fix. How risky is it to install? cIOSCORP v3.4 overwrites the majority of the system files (IOS) on your Nintendo Wii with modified ones which "know" how to handle DVD±R discs, so the installation process itself can be quite risky. You should be fine if you just let the installer run though. THIS PACKAGE COMES WITH ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY, NIETHER EXPRESS NOR IMPLIED. THIS (AS WITH ANY OTHER MODIFICATION) WILL ALSO VIOD ANY OFFICIAL NINTENDO WARRANTY THAT YOU MAY HAVE. WE (da_letter_a & damysteryman, or anybody else for that matter) ARE NOT HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THIS MAY CAUSE TO YOUR NINTENDO WII CONSOLE! YOU USE THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK! How to install it: Unpack the contents of this .zip file to your SD card and run the "cIOSCORP v3.4 Main Installer" application via the Homebrew Channel, sit back, and wait a few minutes. That's it! If you want to load backup GameCube games too, then run the "cIOSCORP v3.4 Extras Installer" application via the Homebrew Channel, and install EITHER WiiGator's OR waninkoko's cmios. Only one can be installed at a time, but you can change your mind by overwriting the one installed by installing the one you want. IOSes 30, 35, 36, 50, and 60 now all have the ES_DiVerify Patch in them. This fixes preloader compatibility, and should allow the majority of homebrew applications to identify as SU (SuperUser). This patch will only allow identification as SU, but not others like SystemMenu, so programs like AnyTitle Deleter won't be able to identify as SystemMenu. Due to the way the custom DIP Modules work, they do not support DVDX, so cIOSCORP v3.4 now includes a workaround to this. Just run the "cIOSCORP v3.4 Extras Installer" application via the Homebrew Channel, and install the included IOS201 and DVDX channel. Be aware that this WILL OVERRIDE ANY PREVIOUS DVDX INSTALLATION!!! (This workaround may not work for some applications, or some users.) Comment from damysteryman: "We tried to make it as noob friendly as possible. Read README, copy it over, run it, done! Now just pop in a disc and play!" How to uninstall it: Fisrt of all, DON'T DELETE ANY IOS!!! YOU WILL (most likely) KILL YOUR WII IF YOU DO!!! Rather, the IOS must be OVERWRITTEN with official, unmodified IOS. Just download one of the cIOSCORP v3.4 Uninstall packages, copy it to your SD Card, and run the uninstaller via the Homebrew Channel. MAKE SURE YOU DOWNLOAD THE CORRECT ONE! If you are not sure which one is the correct one, just use the "cIOSCORP v3.4 Uninstall (LU64)" package. The link for the download can be obtained by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org (along with the cIOSCORP v3.4 download link) A compatibility list has also been included in the package. Open the "cIOSCORP v3.4 compatibility.xls" file, or "cIOSCORP v3.4 compatibility.xhtml" file if you can't open .xls files. The official cIOSCORP v3.4 package can always be found by emailing email@example.com. If you get it from anywhere else, it might not be the official package, and could be corrupted. A member of wii website repackaged a previous version and distributed their package, which (accidentally) had a corrupted IOS30. So be sure to grab the official version! @Redistributors, news posters, etc: If you do plan on redistributing or linking to the cIOSCORP v3.4 package, could you please just link to the original cIOSCORP v3.4 package, rather than repackaging it yourself? Thanks in advance. FAQ: Does it work with LU64+ or equivalent Wiis? -> YES! It is the ONLY full-on disc channel loading solution for LU64+ and equivalent Wiis! cIOSCORP v1 and v2 will BRICK LU64+ (or equivalent) WIIS! Do I have to uninstall anything before installing this? -> NO!!! NEVER UNINSTALL OR DELETE ANY SORT OF SYSTEM FILES! DO NOT UNINSTALL THE SYSTEMMENU! DO NOT UNINSTALL ANY IOS! DO NOT UNINSTALL THE BC! DO NOT UNINSTALL THE MIOS! DON'T EVEN TOUCH BOOT2! (let bootmii do that, if it can) OR ELSE YOU WILL KILL YOUR WII! Just make a NAND backup if you can, then run the installer. THAT'S IT! Can I switch off or unplug the Wii during installation? Is there any way to cancel the installation during the install process? -> NO!!! DOING SO WILL KILL YOUR WII! Once you press "Load" in the Homebrew Channel, or load the "cIOSCORP v3.4 Main Installer" (or uninstaller) application, you can't stop the installation. My discs don't show up in the System Menu! What do I do? -> Make sure the game you are trying to play is the same region as your Wii. If you are trying to play an import, make sure you have some sort of region free hack. If you have preloader installed, try to experiment with enabling and disabling preloader hacks, especially if the hack's name has the words "region", "game" and/or "disc" in it, or maybe change your Wii's region setting. Is the Hackmii Installer compatible? -> Unfortunately, no. The Hackmii installer refuses to run under any fakesigned IOS. We're guessing that Team Twiizers thought that anybody with fakesigned IOS must be a pirate! DVDs won't read properly in MPlayer! What do I do? -> The following answer is based on MPlayer_CE: try going to "Open, File, Wii DVD", this should mount the DVD, which you can then go back and select "Open, DVD Video, Play DVD", or maybe select "Play Title #x" instead, or you could try going to "Open, File, Wii DVD" and load the .VOB file you want to play. Or you could just select "Play DVD" and wait several minutes. What causes the #001 error? -> The majority of games have some code in them that checks whether or not the disc is on a DVD-ROM. If it is, the game runs fine. If not (e.g. if it's on a DVD-R), the game will spit out the #001 error. Rev14's DIP module properly fixes it though, so any game (not running under IOSes 30, 36, 50, or 60, as they use rev12's DIP) should not have this error. If you do get the #001 error, burn the game onto a DVD+R (NOT DVD-R) and BOOKTYPE it to DVD-ROM. This will tell the Wii that it is a DVD-ROM disc and it will load fine. What causes the #002 error? -> More recent games have another piece of code in them that checks what IOS the game is running, against the IOS that the game's tmd requests. If the IOS it's running under does not match the IOS it wants (e.g. you forced it to run under another IOS), it will spit out the #002 error. cIOSCORP users SHOULD NOT GET the #002 error, as the games are not being forced to an IOS they don't want, but if you do get it, make sure that any "IOS Reloading" hacks you have (such as the one used in preloader hacks.ini) is DISABLED. Mario Kart Wii gives me #001 error! What do I do? -> Mario Kart runs under IOS36, the same IOS that Super Smash Bros. Brawl runs under, and Brawl is on a Dual Layer Disc. But rev14's DIP does not support Dual Layer discs. So IOS36 uses rev12's DIP in order to keep Dual Layer Disc support, but does not fix #001 error properly (rev14's DIP is the only DIP that DOES properly fix #001 error). The easiest way to fix this is to burn Mario Kart Wii onto a DVD+R (NOT DVD-R) and BOOKTYPE it to DVD-ROM. If you don't know how to, just google "how to booktype DVD+R to DVD-ROM". If you don't want to do that though, you could load the "cIOSCORP v3.4 Extras Installer" application via the Homebrew Channel, and install the included cIOS36 with rev14's DIP (this will break Dual Layer disc support though). Metroid Prime Trilogy doesn't work properly! What do I do? -> We personally don't have the game to test, but cIOSCORP users need only patch the game to run under IOS36 (as IOS36 supports Dual Layer discs), and then burn it onto a Dual layer Disc (with the layer break set to 2084960), the same way you would burn Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Always backup your .iso file before patching, of course. Ghostbusters gives a black screen! What do I do? -> This should be fixed, but if not: Try to experiment with enabling and disabling preloader hacks, especially if the hack's name has the words "region", "game" and/or "disc". Maybe even try changing your Wii's video mode from NTSC to PAL, and vice versa. Make sure the .iso you're using hasn't had a patch video mode, or been patched to use an IOS other than IOS53, or been patched at all. Make sure it's not a bad dump, etc. If it still gives a black screen, then we're not quite sure why it's not working for you. Maybe there's a setting you missed and didn't change. Ghostbusters freezes at the Wrist Strap Health & Safety Screen! What do I do? -> According to WiiPower, this seems to be a problem with the Scene Release, which could be a bad dump. It could also be due to the 3x DVD reading speed, as compared to the 6x reading speed used for legitimate Wii discs. There is a "disc eject trick" that I found on gbatemp (can't remember who posted it, though. @Whoever discovered this, credits to you.) I have reworded it into steps: Start at the wii menu 1. Make sure the nunchuk is connected before starting 2. Insert disc 3. Banner should load up in disc channel 4. Hit Start (but be ready to hit eject) 5. You should see the screen flicker for a second, when this happens, HIT EJECT IMMEDIATELY! 6. It should say "Please Insert Disc blah blah blah", just wait a few seconds, then insert the disc. 7. The game should load fine from that point. This might have to be tried a few times, and will need practice to master. Here's a quote by WiiPower from this thread: <a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=123307" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=123307</a> "Problem category 3(heath screen freeze games) These games freeze at the heath screen for some users, mostly for people using discs and that only get 3x reading speed. There's no real solution for this problem yet. Some people get it to work by pressing certain buttons with the correct timing. And many people report that they get the game to load by pressing eject with the correct timing, and reinserting the disc when they are asked for. The correct timing seems to be as soon as the screen flashes white for the health screen. And a 3rd solution that is reported to work is to remove the sd card. It seems these problems are caused by faulty piracy releases, many people reported that a self created backup works flawlessly, while the 3 burns before have this issue. Maybe this problem is caused by scrubbing the game." Comment from damysteryman: "Fixing Ghostbusters compatibility really pissed us off. I mean REALLY. I'm assuming it pissed off the testers aswell. It took 5 fixes to make it work. Animal Crossing Wii worked with the first fix we made for it. If I ever see a ghost, I am going to personally bust the damn thing myself!" Hey, da_letter_a, what preloader hacks do you have enabled/disabled? -> Check the included "cIOSCORP v3.4 compatibility.xls" file, or "cIOSCORP v3.4 compatibility.xhtml" if you can't open .xls files. This this related to the original cIOSCORP? -> No. Are you affiliated with any of the creators of the original cIOSCORP? -> No. Then why did you use the name "cIOSCORP"? -> It seemed to be the only name that seems to fit what this modifiation does. Credits: waninkoko - made the cIOS249 we all know and love, we used DIP modules from that to make cIOSCORP v3.4 - made Wad Manager 1.4, we used this to make the "cIOSCORP v3.4 Extras Installer" - made one of the two cmios included in cIOSCORP v3.4 WiiGator - made one of the two cmios included in cIOSCORP v3.4 WiiPower - for telling us about rev14's DIP Module breaking Dual Layer Support - for explaining the "Problem category 3 (health screen freeze games)" icefireicefire - made the original cIOSCORP installer, we modified that to make the "cIOSCORP v3.4 Main Installer" WiiBlaster - the creator of the original cIOSCORP, he let us use the name "cIOSCORP" as no other name seemed to fit what this modification does ChokeD - for hosting cIOSCORP v3.4 and setting up an auto-reply email service to distribute it And of course... All of my testers (too many to name, you all did an ABSOLUTELY SUPERB JOB! Without you guys, this would never be as refined as it is now!) Wanted (for cIOSCORP v3.5): - all of the LATEST (but NON-STUB) Korean IOS files (IOSes 40, 41, 43, 45, 46, and 52) so we can add Korean Wii support - people who are able to disassemble and ASM hack IOS modules (to try and hack Dual Layer disc support back into rev14's DIP) - test results for any games we have not tested (check the compatibility list to see what data you have to give me, and how to set it out, before telling me) If you have any of the above, or can do any of the above, please pm da_letter_a at the gbatemp.net forums. Changelog: v3.4 - changed DIP Module in IOSes 30, 36, 50, and 60 to use rev12 in order to fix Original GC disc support, and to fully remove the Anti #002 error system present in rev13b - added the latest IOS56 to support Guitar Hero 5 - changed the base IOS for all the non-modular IOS from IOS33 to IOS53 - DIP modules are no longer shared between IOS - consolidated all extra features into one installer - removed the bc as it was unnecessary - added uninstall packages (separate download) - added compatibility list to package - updated the FAQ - updated the README v3.3 - changed DIP Module in IOSes 30, 50, and 60 to use rev14, i.e. the true #002b error fix (Ghostbusters, etc. SSBB is unaffected) - added DVDX Fix workaround - added NAND Permissions Patch to IOS36 - changed the ES_DiVerify patch (results didn't change, though) - removed IOS10 from the package as it is unnecessary - updated the FAQ v3.2 - added the ES_DiVerify Patch to IOSes 30, 35, and 50 (preloader fix) - fixed Animal Crossing Wii compatibility - fixed Ghostbusters compatibility as much as possible - moved cmios to use an installer separate to the main installer, for people who don't want to install the included cmios - removed IOSes 51, 56, 57, and 61 as they are unnecessary - completely overhauled the README v3.1 - fixed the #001 errors many games were giving. v3.0 - Unreleased, due to the amount of #001 errors. I have also included a compatibility list in the package, with the compatibility of all the games I have personally tested. There is also an uninstallation package you can download, if you ever feel the need to use it. That way cIOSCORP v3.4 won't end up like v1/2. Now I can't post the link here on gbatemp, but you could always just email firstname.lastname@example.org for the latest version. Enjoy!
