    I tried to install IOS247 to use with softchip, and even though I am connected to the internet I am getting a network error when it tries to connect. I read that I need to download the offline installation files and put them on my sd card, but I have not been able to find the right ones. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks

    What do you want? Install IOS247, just means, instally ANY IOS as IOS247. Do you want the rev6 cIOS for DL games, do you want a cIOS37 for Rock Band instruments, or do you want a "normal" cIOS for backup launching? You can install all these cIOS as IOS247.

    Sorry. I have proven my n00bness. I am trying to install an older cIOS from 0.3 beta to use with softchip. I was having a hard time with SSBB DVD9 and I read that the beta of backuplauncher had dvd9 support. What is the best IOS to install for that? the 0.3 beta? I currently have 0.3 gamma installed with IOS249 I think.

    beta worked fine for SBBdvd9, if you install rev 6 to ios247 then you'll need a version of beta that uses 247 and not 249, other wise it will not work

    So if I install rev 6 to IOS247 and use softchip and point it to use IOS247 it should work?

    Yes, you only need to find a rev6 installer for IOS247. Or you need to modify the standard cIOS36rev6 IOS249 installer on your own.

    Interesting. Thanks everyone. I'll have to look around for an installer. If anyone knows of one could you let me know?

    Thanks.

    Does this rev6 installer downloads the files from the server or does it also work with the needed files in SD:/00000001/ ?

    //EDIT:
    Yes, It can use the files from SD!

    Hi, just to clarify (kinda new here) I just run the file that nutta posted in homebrew and then select ios 247 from softchip to get this to work, or do I have to do other things as well? Sorry for the newb question ive been searching through this site trying to figure this out for like 3 hours now but its all still a bit complicated for me =(
