    I wrote a cIOS installer that only changes IOS36 dip and leaves everything else from IOS36 unchanged*:
    http://rapidshare.com/files/214481421/uswtest1.zip.html

    I think the problem is either a trucha signed IOS at all, or it's something else that's patched into the cIOS(to get more rights than you should have), so i think it's worth a try.

    Requirements:
    - some experience with softmodding
    - a backup to test
    - IOS16 installed(v257, not the one from 4.0!!!)
    - sd card
    - common-key.bin in the root of the sd card
    - IOS36-64-v1042.wad in /IOS/ on the sd card


    So if you have a IOS249 already, you can't install this as IOS249. In fact you can't overwrite or delete anything for now, so select a free IOS slot.


    *That will be good enough to play backups, even trucha signed ones.
    PS: I added SoftChip to the package as it's the only loader you can use with this if it works(except you didn't have a cIOS installed before...)

    I said that one of the requirements is: "some experience with softmodding", so i thought it's clear to the testers that uii is the cIOS installer and that the testers would figure out themselves how to use it.

    *Edit: Great 10 downloads already but no reports. Who downloads this for what purpose if it's not to test it on a "unsoftmoddable" wii?

    i guess most new Wii owner with the LU64* Wii would not have too much experience with softmodding...so it would be really helpful if you could provide some more instructions on how to use your new mod. After all, most of us only know how to load *dol and *wad files [​IMG] ...oh well

    So, if only you could give some info on the "uii is the cIOS installer and that the testers would figure out themselves how to use it.", we will really appreciate it.

    So it doesn't work? It's confirmed now that the new Wiis block all trucha signed IOS? (or least these with the backup dip)

    Install a cIOS with the installer to a slot different than IOS249. (Why not IOS248?) And then just test that with SoftChip and a backup from which you know that it works?

    I am new to this. I have just bought my wii this week with lu64*. I installed hbc.

    -Used Wad Manager 1.3 to install IOS16-64-v257.wad
    -Used IOS16 to install 07-cIOS249-v7_waninkokoFULL-nw7.wad

    When I run Backup Launcher 0.3gamma/Softchip I get a black screen and wii freezes.

    Wad Manager 1.3 now freezes. When I try to run IOS16 I get error ret=-1.

    Can you please give brief steps how to do the test and the file structure on the SD card?

    I was able to setup the two ISOs on my wii but could not run backup launcher or softchip (black screen). Now wad manager 1.3 does the same (black screen).

    What I understand I need to use the uii dol and make it to install IOS36-64-v1042.wad. Then we run softchip and ask it to run from IOS248?

    Is that correct?

    SD card file structure is as follows:

    \apps\SoftChipR87
    \apps\uii
    \IOS\IOS36-64-v1042.wad
    \common-key.bin

    format your SD-Card (no microSD or SDHC) to FAT/FAT16 and retry these steps [​IMG]

    in fact i think softmii would not solve this problem!!!

    @wiipower - falls mir mal eine unsoftmoddable Wii unter die Augen kommen sollte, dann halte ich dich natürlich auf dem Laufenden [​IMG]
