    Hello,

    I currently have my wii softmodded, via the old twillight hack method, with Waninkoko Custom Cios v10 and downgraded to 3.2U, like it was mandatory back in time. I also have bootmii v0.9 installed as boot2, and i have a Nand Backup.

    Well, i'm experiencing some trouble now. First, I can't launch homebrew channel through bootmii; when I start my wii, it load bootmii, and if I try to load HBC from bootmii, blackscreen forever. This bug came after I installed the HBC update that popped out automaticaly while I was in HBC; I had installed the HBC update and DVDX from the update program that popped out, then I were unable to boot HBC from bootmii.

    It realy bother me because botting HBC from bootmii saved me from a semi-brick, when I had Bootmii, but without nand backup. I just had downgraded-upgraded back to 3.2U and corrected my semi-brick.

    Is there a way to fix this bug?

    Also, what is the safest way to upgrade my wii to 4.2?

    Finally, one last thing : Which is the best Cios I can install on my wii? Because at the moment Waninkoko Custom Cios v10 work great, but I can't play Guitar Hero 5 and Monster Hunter tri. (Those are the only 2 games I can't play).


    I know this is a lot to ask, but I will greately appreciate if anybody could help me in any point I pointed out.

    There
    for a quick,simple guide is suggest the stickied thread here

    but a detailed guide which might confuse you a bit would be the CSG

    both of those are safe so don't worry,and start from scratch(update to 4.2)

    next to zero risk, only way to screw it up is to lose power during the 1.5 seconds its installing it

    Okay, thanks. And for upgrading to 4.2U while having those mod? (and maybe Cioscorp too i think), what's the risk? Should I upgrade it with the wii upgrader tool thingy wich was used long time ago to downgrade?

    Uninstall cioscorp, then do a nintendo update. This shouldn't brick you. Now re-stoftmod.
    Use Wanin's ciosx 19(or was 20 released? I forget)

    BTW updating to 4.2 will not get those 2 games to work for you - there are cIOS related issues for them. For MH3 it will run if you install Hermes cIOS rev4. Your BootMii/HBC problem is purely a compatibility issue - you need a newer version of Bootmii thats all - get the latest Hackmii installer and install the latest Bootmii.

    I heard the only way to install Cioscorp is by upgrading/downgrading, so should I just update my wii to 4.2U with nintendo update from the wii setting, then re-softmod from scratch?

    I just want to know, if I upgrade my wii that way, will I still have bootmii since its boot2, so I can Nand restore in case of brick?
