    ok a few questions about dop ios mod.. i have the very latest version with system check fix

    1 can i just install the latest shop channel if i wish? withought installing system menu 4.2? same for other channels
    2 IF i want to go back to a previous system menu.. say 3.2 from 4.2 can i do it throug dop ios mod?
    3 can i just update the ioses i need to play the latest games? withought changing system menus
    4 say i backed up my nand when on 3.2 and i wanted to reinstall it but now im on 4.2 what would i need to do? downgrade to 3.2 again then reinstal the nand?
    5 if i upgrade to the latest ios and want/need to go back to my previous one how do i do this? in dop ios it only lets you install the latest or the oldest but what about the one i was previously on? which might be somewhere inbetween
    6 if i manually change the ioses what will happen if i install a new rev or go back to a older one? or say for instance when waninko does rev 18
    7 what would the experts consider to update to be as up to date a can be?
    8 will usb loader gx/wad manager/homebrew ch etc work after updating to 4.2 with dop ios?

    ok a few questions about dop ios mod.. i have the very latest version with system check fix

    1 can i just install the latest shop channel if i wish? withought installing system menu 4.2? same for other channels
    Yes but only free ones, I think. eg. internet, photo, mii...
    2 IF i want to go back to a previous system menu.. say 3.2 from 4.2 can i do it throug dop ios mod?
    Yes. So long as you have the correct SM IOS installed first
    Oh yeah, forgot about that. Some newer Wii's will brick if a 3.X SM is installed
    3 can i just update the ioses i need to play the latest games? withought changing system menus
    Yes.
    4 say i backed up my nand when on 3.2 and i wanted to reinstall it but now im on 4.2 what would i need to do? downgrade to 3.2 again then reinstal the nand?
    Just reinstall the NAND backup.
    5 if i upgrade to the latest ios and want/need to go back to my previous one how do i do this? in dop ios it only lets you install the latest or the oldest but what about the one i was previously on? which might be somewhere inbetween
    Not sure why you'd want earlier versions, but anyway... You'll need NUS Downloader and install that wad using WAD Manager.
    6 if i manually change the ioses what will happen if i install a new rev or go back to a older one? or say for instance when waninko does rev 18
    cIOS and IOS are different. Anyway (18 is out?? okay...) which ever you install it will overwrite. May need to delete the IOS before if you run into problems
    7 what would the experts consider to update to be as up to date a can be?
    Safe updater or an official update.
    8 will usb loader gx/wad manager/homebrew ch etc work after updating to 4.2 with dop ios?
    Yes. Except HBC

    1: yes
    2: not sure, I heard that some wiis cant be downgraded, might only be korean wiis, but someone else can answer that
    3: yes, but you might as well go ahead and update since its about the same effort and everything wiill be fine
    4: your nand backup will take you to the exact same config when u backed up, so if youre on 3.2 when u nand backup, restoring the nand will take it right back to where u were
    5: not sure why you would need to do this, and im not sure anyways. best to have the latest for compatibility
    6:wanins custom ios is only installed as ios249 so that is the only one ever affected by new cios revisions, a stock wii has no ios249.
    7: 4.2 with latest shop and game ioses
    8: you may have to reinstall HBC

    1. yes
    2 u can install system menus and system menu ios so i guess u could
    3 yes
    4 nah just redo the nand and it will take u back to what ever the nand back up was, u dont need to downgrade to use it
    5. theres a reason why it has new or old i wouldnt worry about it, u could allways use nusd and pack the ios u want into wad and install it yourself
    6 nothing that would depend on the cios and if it breaks stuff
    7. just go to 4.2, install priiloader, bootmii etc as every version of the system is hackable no matter what version
    8 yes everything will work fine, u may have to resoft md but everything will work

    Not totally sure i know on newer wiis if you downgrade them they will brick.
    3 can i just update the ioses i need to play the latest games? withought changing system menus
    Yes
    4 say i backed up my nand when on 3.2 and i wanted to reinstall it but now im on 4.2 what would i need to do? downgrade to 3.2 again then reinstal the nand?Just restore the nand dump and you will be back on 3.2 there is no need to downgrade before nand restore.
    5 if i upgrade to the latest ios and want/need to go back to my previous one how do i do this? in dop ios it only lets you install the latest or the oldest but what about the one i was previously on? which might be somewhere inbetween
    Use NUSD and get whatever version you want then install it with wad manager.
    6 if i manually change the ioses what will happen if i install a new rev or go back to a older one? or say for instance when waninko does rev 18
    When you uppgrade or downgrade the current one is overwritten with the new/old one.
    7 what would the experts consider to update to be as up to date a can be?4.1 or 4.2
    8 will usb loader gx/wad manager/homebrew ch etc work after updating to 4.2 with dop ios?Yes

    hey thanks guys some good awnsers there

    just to clarify it... i may have to reinstall homebrew if i update to 4.2?
    iv never had to reinstal the HB channel before whats the current way to install it
    i did it ages ago now with twilight hack

    so my usb games all work on 3.2e no probs iv only ever used waninkos revs
    for updating etc
    even super mario bros works fine, will i have to get newer versions of the games when i upgrade the ioses?
    as i think some of the games were "fixed versions" to work

    Not if you have wireless.

    Take the SD card out and launch the HBC and wait for the network to initialise. It'll the prompt you if you want to update. It'll now install 1.0.6 and it won't get deleted because of the JODI title ID.

    you can take two roads,install Boomii dvdx and HBC via the old bannerbomb now then update to 4.2(please install Bootmii first,and make a backup,just do it)or go 4.2 then bannerbomb(4.2 one) with the 4.2 update

    So what is the advantage of using Dop-IOS mod instead of Wad Manager when installing required IOS/cIOS ?

    REMEMBER!!! Bootmii will be uninstalled of its installed as boot2 because Wii update 4.2 will update your Boot2 version. but it just to reinstall bootmii afterwards. =)

    So wait, you're basically saying here that the hackmii installer updates your Boot2 to v4? [​IMG]
    There is no other way for the 4.2 update not to overwrite Boot2 (if you had an older one)

    Just FYI. There are alternative ways of getting System Menu 4.2 while leaving Boot2 in tact.

    * Use DOP and install IOS70 first then System Menu 4.2
    * Use Wad Manager and install IOS70 first then System Menu 4.2

    This is all you need to get ONLY the latest System Menu. However if you upgrade any of the channels they may require upgrading the IOSes that use them.

    And on a final note. There is nothing in BootV4 blocking any of the IOSes. Dop-IOS v12 is going to use a title database that I have built myself and I have tested EVERY revision of EVERY title. And everything has worked for me so far.

    The only thing that Boot2V4 does that I have seen so far is just wipe out BootMii.. No Biggy just reinstall.
