I would like to post my own 4.2 guide which includes (installing BootMii, cIOSs and cMIOS).
Yes, another 4.2 guide but this one might be easier to understand. It is intended for 4.2 virgin Wiis but it should work on a pre hacked Wii.

Here is the link to it as well as the link to my forum which I made this weekend:

Please leave feedback on my forum and sign up if you like

BTW I started this guide before any other 4.2 guide was released so I didn't copy anyone

Post the guide here.

No one is gonna sign up to your board just to view the guide.
Posting it here will get better results and probably a lot of hate as well.

* nand dumps are ~540MB, not 512, hence you should mention you need at least a 1gb sd card with 540MB free to take a nand backup.

* why are you only downgrading ios15? you should be downgrading ios15, then using ios15 to patch ios36, then restoring ios15. its not ios downgrader, its trucha bug restorer... just a personal thought.

also, wouldnt harm to mention preloader as brick protection if you cant install bootmii as boot2.

Preloader wasn't made to be brick protection.

neither was bootmii.

preloader still does offer basic protection, such as recovering from bannerbricks, which is better than nothing.

but to install waninkoko's cIOS you must have a patched IOS, which is usually IOS36 patched by TBR
which means your guide can only be used on previously hacked wii's, not virgin wii's
the reason the 2nd steps of TBR flipped your HBC is because your installed HBC 1.0.6 using IOS36, not IOS61
you must install a clean IOS61 and IOS36 for it to install to IOS61.

I updated the guide to include restoring IOS 36 although I haven't got a Wii to test on ATM. As soon as I get home I will test it if no one else has.

Guide updated with Preloader. A guide just for Preloader will be made soon!

Apparently some people are having DSI exceptions with TBR. If you're getting them try unplugging the Wii completely, changing SD card or formatting it.

I used this guide to help my uncle hack his wii. Worked great! I liked this guide better than the other ones available because they had a bunch of superfluous steps that they acted like were so important. This one is a straight forward, no-nonsense guide.

One problem I had though is that under "Restoring the Trucha Bug" you wrote "5) Run Any Title Deleter MOD and select IOS 15 and press A." It doesn't work on IOS 15 (presumably because we've already restored it by that point), so IOS 36 needs to be used. I still give this guide a 10/10 though.
