Sorry jeannotte, I understand you want to help. it's just, a lot of users just through "post syscheck" without knowing how to read it, or if IOS is really the problem and syscheck would not help fix the problem at all. But at least, we can tell him to "fix" (it's not really broken, but it's always nice) his slot249 to install r52 instead. for some reasons, for a week I don't receive any notification when I'm tagged. before answering, I'll tell you the differences, because most guide don't. r52 can only mount HDD from USBport0. r53 is a beta version, but released anyway. it can mount USB Port0 and Port1, has a first-try of Plug'n'Play (you plug microphone, or Portal, or wiispeak, or USB accessory AFTER booting the game). it was later found that r53 had more issues which weren't known are release date (but guides never cared to update/fix their informations, so a lot of people still end with using the bad version. Or the author are just plain stupid to mix r52 and r53 with different base.... they never tried to think by themselves). - r53 has "some HDD" (not all of them) init/mount issue when using EmuNAND - r53 has game incompatibility (Just dance, and another game I always forgot) - r53 doesn't work with wii games on SD card (wiiflow let you do that, not USBGX) If you don't need to use 2 USB Ports at the same time (why would you?), then you don't need r53 at all ! if you care about plug'n'play, it was a (failed?) test, just plug your USB accessory for your game before powering the console. Now, how to replace d2x cIOS : download this : D2x cIOS Installer FULL package for Wii (not vWii) create a a folder on your SD card : sd:/apps/d2x_installer/ extract in that folder. launch d2x installer from HBC (first be sure you have internet access.... and you are not in 2019 because nintendo will close eShop/network access for the Wii) Press A, and use d-PAD to select this : What : d2x v8 Final (or v10 r52, these are actually EXACTLY the same thing, except for one thing : r52 is supposed to fix a HDD compatibility issue) where : 249 base : 56 version : 21008 / 21010, or 65535 if you don't have priiloader and plan to insert and play disc game from system menu. Press A to Install from network. once done, exit the installer.
