    cant the fix be patched into wanin's original installer?
    i install offline - i dont use windows and dont pull files from nintendo's server.
    (i wouldnt trust nintendo not to substitute version numbers eventually either)

    Around somewhere
    I know Miigotu (one of the Wiiflow devs) got it working, but it was still buggy...if he gets it right, it will be in the next public release of Wiiflow.

    Yes, I agree that V2 did more than just fix 2nd USB port issues. Whatever bug there was causing the USB 2nd port problems, must have been causing the cios to "hiccup" in general. I could not get perfect scores on guitar (wiimote based, not USB) under V1, but no problem at all under V2.

    Great job Davebaol

    you can....but it would be easier to just remove the stubs with MMM and then install the cIOS as normal...

    go the ModMii's advanced downloads, and select the cIOSs u want to use, then change their slot numbers and\or version numbers when asked, then install with a wad manager

    Hey guys,

    I got a question here. I got two HDDs, one "Western Digital My Passport 250GB" which worked fine without any problems yet and a "Western Digital Elements 500GB" which has the so called "spindown-issue". Will cIOSX rev21d2x v2 fix this? Not sure about that.

    To be more specific:
    I use 4.3Ev2, USB Loader GX 2.0 (rev1061), got Hermes cIOS 5.1 installed (( 202[60], 222[38], 223[37], 224[57] )), Waninkokos cIOSX rev21 (( 249[57], 250[38] )), HBC 1.0.8 running on IOS58 and I'm usually starting my games in USB Loader GX through cIOS249. Zelda: Twilight Princess and all other games (but in Zelda it was the most obvious) "lagged" somehow, e.g. when picking up a yellow rupee it took several _seconds_ until the dialouge telling me that it's worth 10 green rupees was displayed - it looked like the yellow rupee model had to be loaded from HDD but because of it spinned down it took so long. These problems did not occur when sing my other HDD which workes fine (Elements has spindown issue for me, but Passport works fine).

    So, will your cIOSX rev21d2x v2 fix this issue for the games I start with cIOS249?
    Will it fix the spindown-issue also for IOS58 which I use to start homebrew channel and apps like WiiMC (the HDD is really slow in WiiMC, too, once it spinned down)? What can I do to verify it worked? Would there be a way to start Homebrew apps or HBC with cIOS249 if it works better?

    Thanks in advance!

    So, it seems that it only works with cIOS, right? So would it be better to use cIOSX249 rev21d2x v2 than IOS58 for starting homebrew? How would I do that? Because that spindown-issue also causes problems when using WiiMC with IOS58 or other homebrew using IOS58.

    Please, I would really be very thankful if you give me an answer to that question. In other words: Is cIOSX249 rev21d2x v2 better than IOS58 according to USB HDDs? Thanks in advance!

    @eN-t : Yes, we're talking about a modified version of cIOSX rev 21 by Waninkoko, so it has nothing to do with the original IOS58.
    Some homebrews (some USB loaders, WAD managers, etc...) let you choose at startup which IOS slot you want to use.
    But I don't use WiiMC, so I can't answer for this specific homebrew, sorry.

    It's hard to guess if you HDD will work better with a cIOS based on IOS58, or with a cios based on an other IOS, the only way to be sure is to try.

    Waninkoko never released the cIOS installer source... Maybe we could modify hermes installer... Some other ideas?

    Your WD Elements drive should've came preloaded with some sort of software and within that software should be an option to disable the sleep function. This should stop your drive from spinning down.
