    So I was attempting to get the DLC on GH:WT working properly from the SD card, and I tried a few different cIOS choices to see which worked best.
    I used Configurable USB Loader (v55) for my testing. Here are my results:

    249rev17 - neither the DLC nor the microphone work (IIRC - I might be remembering this one wrongly)
    249rev19 (base 57) - DLC works perfectly on SD or NAND, but the microphone is not detected
    223rev5 (base 37) - freezes occur when trying to load DLC or the music store
    223rev4 (merged bases 38 + 37) - microphone works, but DLC on an SD card gives the "Out of Date" error and some numbered error when transferring is attempted
    224rev5 (base 57) - freezes occur on the music store, the microphone is not detected
    222rev5 (base 38) - microphone works, but SD DLC gives the usual transferring and playing errors
    (ADDED) 250rev19 (base 37) - everything works perfectly, thanks for the suggestion!

    (Old) Conclusions:
    - If you want to play DLC from an SD card, use 249rev19 (57) -- but the microphone won't work
    - If you want to use the microphone, use 223rev4 (38+37) -- but the DLC won't work from an SD card
    - If you want both, use the original or a backup disc.

    (New) Conclusion: Use Waninkoko's rev19 (base 37) and everything works!

    Did you try cIOS 249 Rev19 (base 37)?? From what I understand that's for the music games with USB instruments. I'd test it myself for you, but I don't have any USB instruments (just the guitars that you need to connect to the Wiimotes).

    You beat me to it, mvgc3. Music games use IOS37 as IOS, so any cIOS to use all the features will have to have that base as well.

    I'm actually surprised it runs with cIOS'es on another base.


    "cIOS37 rev 19" works fine for playing and DLC, but haven't tested the online shop or the microphone.

    he's probably playing with a les paul or clone. you put the wiimote in those as opposed to the newer instruments which use a usb dingle dongle.

    i've found everything to work fine with hermes v5 cios37 with gh5/bh. Haven't tested on ghwt. I have rb2 drums, so compatibility starts with gh5. It'd be killer if we could figure out how to get the ghwt update to work on gh5/bh.

    OP, try r19 cios37 or v5 cios37 with gh5/bh.

    Which USB loader do you use, ziddey?


    From what I've tested, I've got the same results as the OP, and I'm (indeed) using a guitar with inserted wiimote (the world tour one).

    previously, I used cios38+37v4, and ghwt dlc worked fine, except for the nand/sd glitch. Haven't tested again now with v5 since I have a rb2 drumset which isn't supported in ghwt.

    Have you tried with Guitar Hero 5? 250 rev19 base 37 doesn't load the SD card for me.

    For everyone that has gotten DLC to work with the new Guitar Hero games: Are you using a regular SD card or SDHC? I have an SDHC card and I know that was an issue with GTWT, but I'm hoping its not the case with the new games.

    GH5 works with SDHC. I had to use a disk (cIOScorp. I can't seem to get it to work through USB, though I haven't tried with the newer revs yet) but it shouldn't make that big a difference.

    I'm doing the exact same thing which is why I tried the 250 rev19 base 37.

    Ah I see, but I guess that means its a no go with USB loaders no matter what cIOS configurations are used?

    I meant the game in general, not SDHC card compatibility. Like I said, if you have it working on a USB loader then you should still be able to use an SDHC card just fine.

    ok another update. this is by fluke i dunno.. what i did for rockband2 dlc.

    i reloaded rev 19 250 base 37.
    on the pc in the raw manager i loaded the sd card and resaved it all.
    on the wii i loaded the home brew channel thur another sd card, thenreplaced that card with the 2 gig sd card i use for rock band, used the installer for the custom and reinstalled card. went back to wii menu and loaded the dvd for the rockband2 and now see's the card and all the dlc..

    now it works.
    rb2 with drums and mic running off usb hub and 2 wireless guitars with dlc.

    hope this helps.

    lost

    I just tried Guitar Hero 5 with both rev19 (base 57) and rev19 (base 37); base 57 results in a black screen, and base 37 seems to work properly. I'll do more testing and update the first post later.
