    Just got done with Dump Mii NAND and ready to move onto step 5a of Truth's guide here on the forums. I'm expecting it to go smoothly, but is there a chance that I could run into any potential snags? This is all new to me and I don't want to screw up.

    Just make sure you dump everything under vIOS 200, +vIOS 512 and 513. Also, make sure you do NOT choose to fakesign

    Just making sure.. I don't dump vIOS 200 or anything above that? Except for vIOS 512 and 513. Saying NO to fakesigning.

    I mean, you CAN, but there's literally no reason to, as all the 200 range slots should be empty (they're cIOS slots, you'd be dumping blank data that will just take up space). And yes, make sure you say NO, otherwise you will have a dump that will do you absolutely no good in case you need to re-install it (the Wii U will reject fakesigned vIOSs). Also, make sure that you never, NEVER try to install a Wii IOS or cIOS. You're doing yourself a favor by reading the tutorials, keep it up, make sure you're understand what you're doing, and after you've done everything and want to start modding, make sure you read the stickies

    Thank you for your help. I know I ask some odd questions, but this stuff is all new to me.

    No problem. If you need anything else, you can either ask it publicly on this subforum or send me a PM and I'll be happy to help to the best of my ability!

    Ohhhhhhh I see what's going on *facepalm* I didn't even notice until you re-worded it. This is asking what IOS you want YABDM to load on. Select 58, then go to "System Titles" and dump all of the IOSs previously mentioned

    My issue was not having the Meta.xml file, which is why my options were jacked up.
