    I've read all the treads about the HBC being upside down, but my problem is a little different. I know that installing an untouched IOS36 will cure the problem, but this is where my dilemma begins. I need to have the "cIOS36 rev14 DIP" from CIOSCORP in order to run Mario Kart. However, installing "cIOS36 rev14 DIP" will cause the HBC to flip upside down. I know that some people have the HBC use IOS 60/61 and now my question is, Is there and way for the HBC to use IOS 60/61 instead of IOS 36?

    You don't NEED to have a dipped IOS36 to run Mario Kart. You just NEED IOS249.

    I'm trying to run Mario Kart Wii off the Disc Channel. And I already have IOS249 installed.

    Then just install an unmodded IOS 61 and let HBC run from that

    Be sure to check which IOS the HBC is installed under. Press "HOME" while in the HBC and it'll come up in the top right corner. Once you know which IOS it is, install that untouch IOS.

    BTW, cIOS with different revisions uses different IOSes. cIOS rev3 is 37, cIOS rev8 is 36 and cIOS rev14 is 38 (as examples). When these are installed they are all installed as IOS249.

    And, what? The HBC is up to 1.0.6 already??

    Okay...

    Yes, I checked that HBC 1.0.6 uses IOS 36. Mario Kart Wii also uses IOS 36, but I installed a patched version of IOS 36 from CIOSCORP inorder to make it boot from the Disc Channel. This makes the HBC flip.

    But, I know that some people have their HBC use IOS 61. How can I make my HBC use IOS 61 so I can boot Mario Kart Wii from the Disc Channel and have a normal HBC?

    I'm on 4.1U.

    I'll try uninstalling the HBC and reinstalling it using Hackmii Installer v0.6. That won't mess anything up right?

    'round and 'round the same conversations go,
    where's the SEARCH? Newbies don't know!!!! [​IMG]


    The installer looks around for the best exploit to use to install stuff. The best one out there (in the eyes of the DEVs, who know a lot more than I do) for the HBC is in IOS61 so it looks there FIRST. If the installer doesn't recognize the IOS or the wrong information is at a certain offset in the file (because of a trucha patch or any mod) then it will continue looking for the next exploit in it's list. IOS36 seems to be next in line for homebrew channel, while an original (THE original) IOS30 seems to be favored by the hackmii installer as a whole.

    Long story short (as told over and over again): Install the old IOS30 (press "-" in DoP-IOS) and the hackmii installer will not yell at you for having no vulnerable IOSs. Install IOS61 without any patch, then uninstalling and reinstalling HBC will cause HBC to use IOS61 AND not be upside down.

    I think that urherenow's suggestion is correct. I've just got to tinker with the settings to get CIOSCORP and HBC to work properly. Thanks.
