    !!YOU MUST HAVE HAD CIOS INSTALLED BEFORE YOU UPDATED FOR THIS TO WORK!!

    First, thanks to lissm, who wrote part of this tutorial in another post. I adapted it to work with more than just uloader. I've tested this on multiple wiis, works perfectly. No need to fuck around with bootmii backups, etc. It just works! All wiis i tested it on were updated with the official updater, but if you used Wan's updater you will be fine as well.

    Works with whatever usb loader you want.

    This method requires the following:

    1. You have the homebrew channel working on 4.2. If not, just install it with indiana pwns or any other method.

    2. hermes cios installer.

    3. cIOS38_rev14-Installer.zip

    4. Usb loader gx.

    The steps.

    1. Put them in your apps dir, as normal.

    2. Run Herme's Cios installer.

    3.First pick cios 250.

    3a: Next, hit cios 222.

    3b: Use the "recomended" option next.

    Your wii will go online, download some shit, install it, and exit tot he homebrew channel.

    Now relaunch and do the same, picking 223 at step 3a

    Now run the cios 38 rev 14 installer. Tell it to use cios 222. It will install.

    Run USB Loader gx.

    Finally, play your pirated games with usb loader gx. Also, reply to this thread so it stays high up and noobs see it, instead of that other thread that wants you to mess around with bootmii backups

    And how do you propose that you use a trucha signed 250 when Nintendo stubs the damn thing when you officially update? I understand if you previous had 250 installed with the higher version number it'll work, but how does this help someone who previously had NO softmod and is on v4.2? And what is rev7 of Waninkoko's cIOS even doing here? This guide is useless.

    Doesn't matter. You follow these steps AFTER you update. I've tested it, it works. Do not troll until you try it. Use whatever CIOS rev you want. This is just a basic guide to get shit going again.

    I'm not here to support noobs who were never softmodded. This works for pretty much anyone who had a usb loader working before but did not after.

    Do not "troll"? Excuse me newbie, but I have been working on and with the v4.2 menu from the moment it was released. You are an idiot. It installs "some shit"? What?

    Anyway, forget this so called "guide". If you are already softmodded, simply use Waninkoko's v4.2 firmware updater, which will not touch your cIOSes in the first place. They will be there as they were in the previous system menu. There's a good thread regarding v4.2 findings here in this forum.

    If you are already softmodded and UPDATED OFFICIALLY, shit doesn't work until you folllow these steps. Again, there is no need for you to post idiotic garbage in this thread. Please leave.

    Well , Zektor is right.
    So don't be stupid and edit your title to add that it only works if you had previously installed ios250...(before to update).
    it won't work if it's not the case.

    I would like to think that that is implied. If you had a wii and weren't already softmodded, well.....

    Cool down guys,

    JustReading's method will only work if you have a non virgin Wii. If a cIOS was installed before you update via Nintendo updater, there is a IOS250 with a higher version installed (backup of IOS249), because the IOS250 will not be overwritten with the Nintendo stub version ....

    To confirm, you are telling it to install use cios 222 when it launches, correct? In addition, you did install hermes cios before moving on to cios rev14, correct?

    I also can't believe you had the audacity to compare yourself to me, when I clearly am superior to you in every meaningful way.
