    I got a wii with system menu 3.0J here. Installed bannerbomb, bootmii. But got stucked when updating system menu. The error it gave me was Failed to IOS36, with current IOS as 35(bottom of screen). I did a Scan on my Wii internals and there wasnt any IOS36. Help Please? If possible, i would want to update the wii offline

    I assume that you are using this guide, correct?

    If so, download Yet Another Wii WAD Manager MOD, and it should allow you to select IOS35 as the IOS to use. You could also try the Multi Mod Manager (MMM). Before doing anything, make sure that you first use BootMii to make a NAND backup, and make sure that you installed BootMii as boot2. After you have done this, make sure that you follow the instructions correctly in that guide.

    I have used that guide on a 3.0U SNEEK NAND, with no IOS36, and was able to update it to 4.2U without any problems, and I never had to connect the Wii to the internet.

    The YAWMM keep prompting me what IOS to use, according to the update guide in the wiki; it says to use IOS36. My wii doesnt contain IOS36(scrolled through, no IOS36), this means i cant continue the guide. Any Suggestions please?

    You could try downloading IOS36 through NUS Downloader, and installing it onto your Wii console. Games like Super Smash Brothers Brawl and Mario Kart Wii will also have an IOS36 that does not require any patching to it in its current state. When I did it, I just used IOS35, though.

    Again, make sure that you installed BootMii as boot2, and that you have a NAND backup before doing any of this.

    Umm i installed Bootmii as IOS and i have already done a backup NAND. How do u install Bootmii as Boot2 instead of IOS now that i installed as IOS? Can i install both? Or have to uninstall IOS first?

    Ok.....I done installing Bootmii on Boot2. Regarding the YAWMM step, i should only use IOS35 to install only IOS36?

    If you want, you can try to install IOS36 using NUS Downloader, if you want to use that version, since that's what that guide says. However, I have personally used IOS35 to update a 3.0U SNEEK NAND to 4.2U without any problems. 3.0 uses IOS30, and 4.2 uses IOS70, so there shouldn't be any problem with using IOS35 to update the files.

    Again, however, if you feel safer, you can use NUS Downloader/Super Smash Brothers Brawl/Mario Kart Wii to install IOS36. Assuming the directions are followed correctly, there shouldn't be any problems with that either.
