    IF you have IOS wads in that package, you only have a few minutes to remove the link until you get problems.

    On top of that your method is illegal in general(because of IOS16), really only works on 3.4 and is much more complicated than the alternative to just use my Trucha Bug Restorer(that works on all Wiis up to 4.1).

    PS: oh and i see, it's super outdated, since it uses 2 WAD Managers, while WAD Manager 1.4 simply replaces both.

    Yeah. Guides here are generally welcome but not with links to illegal files. You may want to rewrite it specifying how to get the wads legally with NUSD. You can't do it for IOS16 since the only one you can get with NUSD is a stub, but you may be able to walk through getting some newer IOS with NUSD, then trucha patching it. That should allow it to work on LU64+ Wii's providing you don't use older IOS versions. (I'd avoid picking IOS's that are used for any system menu. That way the brick risk is lower.)

    But yeah, it's a lot easier for most people to just use WiiPower's tool. He made it to avoid having to go through all of this shit.

    Linking IOS wads is illegal and against the rules of this site. Also sorry, i can't stand a guide that uses illegal methods, while using legal ones is even easier.

    Well, cIOSCORP also includes cIOS patches like the DIP module to have disc channel loading of backups. As far as I know there is no easy way to accomplish that with automatic tools.

    It shouldn't be hard to, however, trucha patch all of the new IOS's. As far as I know it would just be a matter of download each non mothballed/stubbed IOS's latest version with NUSD, then running it through wwpacker's freethebug bat file. Then just installing the wads. But this wouldn't be the same as cioscorp as you would lack loading backups from the disc channel.

    I tried that process with IOS61, and it looks like it installed properly. And wad manager as able to use it to install stuff, but the shop channel that uses it black screens. Then again, when I run the shop channel after patching it to use IOS249, it gives me error 002. So I suspect the channel has some sort of copy protection that it uses to detect changes in the IOS it runs on, perhaps something like what newer games need things like NeoGamma for?
