    Hi!

    Can anyone upload this app please?
    I'm looking for IOS236 Installer v6 (I think it's the latest) but with the mod to remove the Anti Piracy Message...
    That message if you press 1 you f... everything!

    Thanks

    Do you actually need that program, or just to install CIOS236 (itself fairly deprecated)?

    In the latter case there are a few alternatives especially if you have HBC installed with AHBPROT support (since it's just IOS36 with a changed titleID and maybe trucha/etc patches)

    On another post @mr-exodia uploaded a DOL app to fix the AP message.
    I tested his app and it didn't work. The message still shows up.

    The IOS236 installer message changes after rerunning it for 6 or more times. It shows a hint to telling the user that he needs to proove he didn't pirate all wii games...
    So, if we insert and run a wii game from disc, all RAM information is rewriten, and the IOS236 installer could run again. And why a wii game? what if we insert a Gamecube disc?
    The answer is simple!
    An easy fix for this Anti Pirate message (and everyone forgot it) was to reboot the console! SO easy!
    Rebooting cleans all RAM information. If we insert a Gamecube disc, we are needed to reboot. We can't go back to wii menu... so the Pirate message do not indicate to play Gamecube games, because it simply cleans the memory it uses!

    Oh I didn't know there were a v7, not even mods.
    thanks for my collection too. too bad there's no changelog or info what this mod does.

    I also didn't know about the antipiracy message, never had to install IOS236 more than once on the same console without rebooting, why would you?
    I actually never had 236 because my 36 were never updated and still has trucha bug in it :) (still on 3.2E)

    this anti-pirate message is a classic on wii scene.
    many of tutorials says to be careful and press button 2 when Installer asks to.
    there is a myth if we press the wrong button (button 1) while installing IOS236, we are screwed!
    and lots of people are afraid of pressing that button, because no one knows what happens next!
    that's why I decided to test it and really press the wrong button!
    this is what happens:

    It unninstalls IOS236 and trolls you:
    1.

    You run it again and it doesn't allow to install IOS236 again:
    2.

    Running it 2 times it says it will give you a hint if you try harder:
    3.

    After 6 tries it gives you a hint (to play an original wii game):
    4.

    After that you can run the installer from beginning!

    oh, thanks for the screenshots!
    That's quite funny (now at least). it's indeed a waste of time, but the developer wasted his time to add this Easter egg and a counter :P
    if it's only checking the RAM, then running a gamecube disc should also reset it. unless it's on a location not accessed by GCgames. but like you said, shutting down is enough.

    v7 MOD2

    Changed startup mode:
    If the "IOS36-64-v3351.wad" file is detected in the SD root, the automatic mode starts immediately (without waiting for 10 seconds), otherwise the Installer is started in standard mode

    v7 MOD

    Recompiled with the new libogc (for the new wiimote) and added the automatic mode.

    Yes! Running a GC game should also reset the memory!
    The problem is that you can't actually test it, because you can't go back to Wii menu while playing a GC game.
    You are also forced to shut down the console. (This is what the IOS236 dev didn't want you to know!)
    On Wii games you can press "Home" and select Wii menu...!

    I'm still trying to understand why anyone would want this for their collection? The V5 mod used by ModMii works just fine without any tricks. I guess the screenshots make for an interesting story but still I don't see why anyone would care to actually boot into this over V5 mod.

    my collection is more for preservation than use. even if it seems useless as nobody else would benefit from it unless asking for specific name/version. I don't intend to use them, and wouldn't recommend users to do it either.

    glad to see people archiving these nuggets out there
    I wonder if a brave soul would eventually create a repository with these, along with what they do.
    Should make up a nice virtual museum.

    I have lots of goodies on my collection and some of them are no longer available online because of broken links...
    These tools are important, in a retrospective way. I like to preserve the evolution of the scene.
    And sometimes you find your old stuff useful!
    How many of you ever needed something, and you remember you sent it to the trash can some years ago?

    Someone has the wadinstaller by Waninkoko with the song: Take on Me in 8bit?

    Always thought it's lit!

    I didn't try all Waninkoko's tools, so I don't know.
    I have only both wad installer and wad uninstaller v1 and v1.1
    I also have a wad channel of the installer 2.1

    I also have some "wad manager" but that's not what you asked.
