    Hello everyone.

    I just started my wii back up again to get it ready to play skyward sword. It's been a year since the last time I did anything with it. I had homebrew channel installed and was running Uloader for my backups.

    I updated to 4.3E and got homebrew to work again through the letterbomb hack. I downloaded neogamma r9 beta 49 as my new backup loader but I forgot I have to install a bunch of cios's to get things working.

    I also forgot HOW I have to install said cios, and which one. Can anyone help me with this?

    My objective is to play skyward sword, if anyone has a suggestion for a better alternative, I'm all ears. I do not have a usb drive though (usb stick, does that work?) So it'll have to be disk based.

    Thanks for the help, I know you must've heard this stuff a million times before.

    I was in the exact boat you are in, just a few days ago.
    Here's my suggestion...
    Use sysCheck to create a CSV of your current IOS's and cIOS's.
    Then, use ModMii (on Windows), and use the "SU" to create the necessary installers, to update your Wii's IOS's.
    Be sure you have d2x cIOS v6 or v7 with an IOS 249 base 56 installed (I think ModMii does this for you)
    Update your USB Loaders.
    I've successfully played the game with the newest releases of WiiFlow and USB Loader GX.

    The above is definitely not a step-by-step, but I think you'll be able to figure out the basics in-between.

    Good Luck!!
