    The last four points (from install 4.0 to install GC channel) are optional
    and you can choose to install other wads
    Also you dont have to move the whole private folder, the save is enough

    you can find the files on hbc.hackmii.com and google (and gbatemp)

    Is the CIOSCorp contained within SoftMii 2.1.1 fine to use with this then? Or is there a newer version?

    preloader v.29 only works on firmware 4.0
    also for cIOScorp to work on 4.0 you need to install CIOS60BF.wad

    Hi guys,
    Where can I get all the needed files? Is there a pack somewhere I can download?

    Cheers,

    There is an error in the TuT.
    On 3.3V2 and 3.4 you cant just install the cIOS.
    It is blocked (error ret -2011 i think).
    You need to install the IOS16 first and then a cIOS Wad with the custom Wad Manager.

    @tj_cool,
    Thanx for that mate. I already have the HBC installed and Gamma too.

    To get USB loader up and running what would I need to do? Just a bit confused about which cIOS I need to install and all that. I am running 3.2E currently. Would I be best to go ahead and do the safe update to 4.0 as outlined about?

    Cheers,
    Mark

    Install the newest cIOS36rev9 first
    That should enable the USB loader to work
    And it is needed for the safe update too

    3. Copy the hack from the SD card over to the system menu
    4. Run Zelda. Talk to the nearby man to initiate the install of the homebrew channel.

    Installing 4.0 firmware:
    1. Launch the Homebrew Channel, select the IOS16 installer ??? (were can i find this file or wad?)
    2. Launch the Homebrew Channel, select custom Wad Manager and install ???? what


    3. Launch the Homebrew Channel, select the the MIOS Patcher and press X on the Gamecube controller before installing the patch, then GCN backups will boot through Gamma Loader channels.
