my current wii system is 3.2(europe) i was on system 3.4u when i first bought my wii. so i downgrade them using the following methods : after twilight hack 1. Install "IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad" using Wad Managers 1.3. 2. Install "cios_fix.wad" with modified Wad Manager IOS16. 3. downgrade to firmware 3.2u with cIOS-Downgrader 4. Patcht all IOS with "IOS-Downgrader" 5. install IOS36-64-v1042.wad with wakinko rev7 I'm using the Backup Launcher 002 fix (channel) and now i'm trying to install ios38 to run animal crossing, preloader and USB loader on my wii... i still have question regarding "Waninko's cios rev7" i understand it install certain ios that is needed to run backup launcher. 1. but which ios does it install and how is it connected with the ios029 that is on the bottom of the backup launcher configuration screen? i wanted to know how to proceed correctly as i didnt want it to end up wrong. and i'll be installing everything via wifi do i need to uninstall certain ios first? could i skip ciosrev8 and straight away to cios rev9? or it has to be done orderly 2. in which order do i proceed with: 1. install ios38, 2. install preloader, 3. USB Loader? 3. to install ios38. i require wad manager 1.3 and IOS38-64-v3609.wad rite? does it work on pal? 4. after installing ios38. is there any visible changes i can see, like inside the bakcup launcher confiq screen, instead of ios029, it changes to ios38? 5. after installing ios38, will it effect the game compatibily? like certain game become unplayable instead. will i be able to play games that require to patch the game to ios029 like mortal kombat armageddon? if yes. with the one that has been patch to ios029 or unpatch game or patch to other ios instead (pls mention which ios if u know)? 6. then install preloader http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=135174 regarding hack ini ....i'm still not quiet sure which hack to tick...i already read what each tick does here " http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=134073" but i would be grateful if someone recommend me which hack is mostly preferred... 7. from what i read...to install usb loader 1. Extract the usbloader.rar file into the root of your SD card. since i'm installing via wifi...do i need to do step 2 too or skip to step 3 2. Stick the IOS36-64-v1042.wad file into the root of the SD card 3. Boot the Homebrew Channel, run the IOS installer 4. Select "WAD Install", it should install automatically 5. Reset Wii 8. remove all .wad file Running USB loader: -Insert a USB drive into the Wii -Boot the homebrew channel, select USB-LOADER -It should ask you about formatting and choosing a partition. This WILL erase everything on your USB drive, so be sure to back it up. Yes, the USB drive can be converted back to normal later, it's no big deal. Windows will however, not be able to read your USB drive while it's formatted under the WBFS.( for example i have 3 partition on my hard drive and formatted one of them to WBFS, will window be able to read the other two partition) -Choose your partition and continue. -Insert the game disk (original or backup) into your Wii, and press the + button. so did i miss something else? and pls do tell me that with all this i'll be able to play as much game as before with backup launcher...and i'll have the option to play all the game via backup launcher or USB loader.(including animal crossing).
