    for the question about WiiXplorer, i used the latest one on the googlecode page, R212.dol. i renamed it to boot.dol and put in a folder called wiiXplorer in the apps folder of my sd card. then i ran it using HBC

    what i do not understand is why IOS58 was not tested originally if alot of newer homebrew uses it.

    Yup, 1 success = completely and utterly safe, without a doubt.

    actually, my console shutdown when returning to WiiMode after the IOS236 installer and appeared bricked. (blue light came on but no video on gamepad or tv). i unplugged console for ~10 min then plugged it back in and it booted back up. including WiiMode.

    It was fine after that. i have had no trouble with the Wii U ever doing that again. even in WiiMode.

    How were the old DARKCORP cIOS's made? What if you gave these the same treatment?

    thanks, that did the trick. the Check Mii Out Channel Installed fine now. it seems to work fine from what i can tell. I will do this to the other channels i was trying to install and will report back if they work.

    How large is the NAND dump? My SD card only has 460MB free space left. Can I use SDHC cards if need be?

    Mine was ~350MB and i used a non SDHC 2gb sd card. i am not sure if you can use SDHC, but you should be good with 460MB freespace left unless you filled up your Wii's system memory.

    the IOS236 wad in the "WiiU Wad Installer Pack V1" works fine with the ios236 installer. i tested the installer with both my dumped wad and the one from the pack on ps3hax.net and both worked without bricking. I still recommend dumping and using your own tho but i would wait for a fix for IOS58 incompatibilities before trying to install ios236.

    also, do not bother installing the Nintendo or Everyone Votes channel as both require WiiConnect24. the Check Mii Out channel and Internet Channel work fine from what i can tell tho. the Photo Channel 1.0 and Internet Channel installed fine via DOP-MII. i did not test mp3 or pictures with the photo channel tho.

    Also, i Noticed that the Channel manager allows moving the Check Mii Out channel to SD. DO NOT do it. it will move fine but will refuse to run from SD menu and refuses to copy back. if that happens, delete the channel from SD card and reinstall wad.

    The Internet Channel copies and runs fine from SD card. i plan to keep it on SD card as its huge.

    I tried dumping NAND through FSToolbox, and ran into 2 problems:

    1st. Got error return -1017 above where it says "Press A to continue".
    2nd. Got error -101 or something like that when trying to dump NAND, then it said would you like to continue or something like that...
    This is my 1st time trying a NAND dump. Please help if possible :)

    Follow my dumping instructions (Post #49), you have to run FSToolbox from WiiXplorer first.

    as in HBC->WiiXplorer->FSToolbox->Press A to Continue->Press 1, then it will proceed to dump entire nand.

    HBC->FSToolbox=Error -101

    I did run WiiXplorer from HBC, then ran FSToolbox from within WiiXplorer (booted the .elf file)... What do those errors mean? I am using an SDHC card...

    I'm getting
    "Error: ISFS_OpenFile(/title/00010000/52323245/data) returned -101
    Do you want to continue anyway?"

    I hit a and get the same error on either the content or next title. metadata dumped fine. also i get a -1017 error not the -1020 at the beginning. so who knows.

    i used the WiiXplorer R212 DOL and left the IOS WiiXplorer uses alone. i literally copied it to my sd card and ran it via HBC. also, i used the Dol of FSToolbox, not the elf.
