    NO LONGER ANSWERING QUESTIONS.........sorry

    UPDATES

    GUIDE is now V4 (cleaned up and added more details and a big CIOS + HBC warning to save people making mistakes)

    IOS60 workaround for those that get stuck installing 15/15 files need to find a patched IOS60 wad and install via Wad Manager.

    NOTE: If you still have trucha (IOS60patched) installed and a modchip and you lose the Homebrew channel use THIS to install it again on 4.0 (Thanks to Davi92 for the edited HBC iso)

    NOTE2: Because the Wii will run games from SD doesn't mean it avoids the risk of banner bricks, the wii still loads the games into memory before running them.

    A note on trucha after updating

    If you want Trucha back after installing 4.0 using the Direct Nintendo update use Waninkoko's IOSDowngrader (not CIOS Downgrader) or use Gecko OS as that works 100% tested.
    Custom guitar Hero will require a IOSdowngrader run.

    I haven't had any problems with any VC games (SSB is said to be a problem but 100% works here), just make sure they are for your region machine.

    If you need help or don't know what something is in the guide DO NOT UPDATE ask around first.

    so why do oyu need to be on 3.2 for this to work i don't see any reason for this to be needed. also can the installment of ios60 be done after you have already updated?

    You can't install ios60 with trucha patch on 3.4-4.0 that is why you need to downgrade.

    You can try running the IOS60 installer on 3.4 but it will fail on patching.

    The guide if followed entirely is really easy and only takes like 10mins.

    P.s if you have already updated and have ios249 installed and HBC you can still downgrade using this guide and then follow from Part 2


    NOTE: If you wanted to avoid the downgrade, you can always find a IOS60 and trucha patch that yourself then install using wad manager......but i spent hours looking and came up short, this is an easier way for most people.

    So Basically it's just IOS60 with Trucha Bug to enable pirated WiiWare/VC from the new SD menu?

    Great guide.

    I Have just done it and everything i have tested so far works without a problem

    Haven't tried installing WADS yet, but moving and playing them from the SD card works fine.

    Don't think i'll be moving the homebrew channel or Gecko OS just to be on the safe side though

    now running firmware 4.0 PAL, wii key2, with gecko os.

    you don't really need to go back to 3.2 or to downgrade all IOS if you already have CIOS: all what you need is to have the IOS60 installer use the CIOS

    I mean, you have to modify the Installer sourcecode to do something like IOS_Reload(249) in the first place

    It looks like I have to get another Wii because I don't want to lose my homebrew of Starfall,Gecko OS,Gamecube Backup Loader,Wii Backuploader Beta & Gamma I don't want to lose my stuff. Hopefully somebody will make a custom system menu for 3.2,3.3,3.4 with 4.0 Features I know this will take time to do.

    HBC, Wadmanager, etc... still funtional after 4.0 update?

    What I don't understand is how the 4.0 update though Wii menu doesn't overwrite the hacked IOS60.

    I'm a fraidy cat so...

    YES to the last 2 posts.

    Folow the guide and install IOS60, can be installed even after updating as long as you have ios249 installed.

    Yes all apps work after update.

    [​IMG] Do tickets already need to be on the nand for unofficial wads to work?

    In otherwords do you have to 1 time install, then delete the channel (using the wii menu, not wad uninstaller) before updating?

    That would be quite a bit of work! Plus I really donĀ“t want to lose Starfall, but maybe a newer version that will work might get released.

    Thanks in advance for any answers!
