    First of all, I would like to say Thanks for the "CompleteSoftmodGuide". It is very helpful.

    I am in the process of updating my wii from 4.0u to 4.2u.
    I followed the CompleteSoftmodGuide to finish "The basics" & "Trucha bug" sections.

    I am at the "Update" section.
    When using the latest version of NUS Auto Downloader (version 4.1.4), I got different wad file name from the guide.

    In my trial, I got the following wad files (under the 'wad' folder):

    4.2U_Systemmenu_v481.wad
    IOS12-64-v269.wad
    IOS13-64-v273.wad
    IOS14-64-v520.wad
    IOS17-64-v775.wad
    IOS21-64-v782.wad
    IOS22-64-v1037.wad
    IOS28-64-v1550.wad
    IOS31-64-v3349.wad
    IOS33-64-v3091.wad
    IOS34-64-v3348.wad
    IOS35-64-v3349.wad
    IOS37-64-v3869.wad
    IOS38-64-v3867.wad
    IOS53-64-v5406.wad
    IOS55-64-v5406.wad
    IOS56-64-v5405.wad
    IOS57-64-v5661.wad
    IOS61-64-v5405.wad
    IOS70-64-v6687[FS-ES-NP].wad
    IOS9-64-v778.wad
    RVL-mios-v10.wad

    According to the guide, I am supposed to move the following file to the SD card root:

    - IOS36-64-v3351.wad (which I don't have in the 'wad' folder... I guess that's fine)
    - RVL-WiiSystemMenu-vXYZ.wad (which file is this referring to????)
    - IOS30/60/70 (I assume this refers to "IOS70-64-v6687[FS-ES-NP].wad"... Correct?)

    Also, the NUS Auto Downloader created the following files under the "COPY_TO_SD" folder:

    00000001 (folder containing 4 sub-folders)
    00000025
    00000026
    00000039
    00000101
    Download_Log.md5
    IOS15-64-v523.wad
    IOS37-64-v3869.wad
    IOS38-64-v3867.wad
    IOS57-64-v5661.wad
    NusAutoGuide.txt
    RVL-mios-v10.wad

    Do I need to copy those to the SD card as wells?


    Thanks in advance

    Run MMM and press install and patch IOS36.
    To update your wii just go into MMM and go into wad manager. THere should be a button that says BATCH INSTALL. Press that and select all the .wads in your wad fiolder. Install them all.

    THen copy the other files to the root of your sd.

    if you got internet access on your pc why didn't you just download the update.zip like it says to do in the guide. your making this harder than it has to be. the zip contains only what you need for updating your softmod wii.

    Yeah, seems I need to update that [​IMG]

    Just install all those wads you mentioned (the first ones, from 4.2U_Systemmenu_v481.wad to RVL-mios-v10.wad) using Wad manager/YAWMM and you should be fine.

    Wrong guide, the CSG has no Update.zip -_-'

    I'd never use some random wads supplied by some guide when you can get them from nintendos servers safely and reliably.

    Install ios70 first, THEN your system menu - that way if something goes wrong you can still start the wii. Install the SM before the IOS it requires and you'll be in for a dead wii if anything goes wrong.

    They come from NUSD
    Or were you talking about the Update.zip mentioned earlier

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    So, I just need WadManager/YAWMM to install all those wad files inside the "wad" folder.
    I don't need to use "DOP-Mii" to install IOS70 & SystemMenu as said in the guide under the "Complete Update" section?

    My bad i just thought that he might have been using the Sticky: Modify ANY Wii 4.2 & below at the top of the hacking page. i wouldn't call xzxero or his guide random either.

    You can install the System menu wad and IOS70 with wad manager as well
    Like stated above, better install IOS70 before the System menu

    S/he is some random nobody on the internet. NUSD will give you IOSs just as nintendo intended. Perfect for a safe install.

    wow, ok georgey boy calm down. no need to start bashing any one. i just want to say that xzxero's guide is a featured sticky in this forum, so that is a good credit to him and his guide.

    i myself used it without problem on several wii's and will continue to do so.
    you are correct about the CompleteSoftmodGuide (aka CompleteSG, CSG), it does offer the assurance of knowing your ios a legit.

    I'm not bashing anyone. I'm sure the guide is grand, I'm sure it has helped to handwalk loads of people through modifying their wii - but in the scheme of things xzxero isn't anyone; I've never heard of them. I've heard of Nintendo though, and I know their servers are gonna be 100% sure pumping out good files.

    Can I just ask why you are using a guide on multiple wiis though? I can understand someone wanting a guide their first time, if they don't understand what it is they are doing, but surely second time onwards you can do it with your eyes closed? Just curious.

    ever heard the saying "measure twice, cut once". and in the grand scheme of things ninty is not nor ever will be a friend to the softmod scene.
    your more likely to brick your wii updating through them, like the many who fell victim and bricked their wii from the release of ninty's official update.
    so ya that is why i trust one who has done the leg work as it were, to pre-compile the the ios's that are needed to do a safe softmod.

    I think the majority of people who can manage to use nusd to download the wads they need for a manual upgrade are clever enough to install updates they can't recover from unless they have a way to repair things.

    Sorry to ask one more question to confirm: (my son will be mad at me if I brick the wii!!!)

    Is this the correct order to install the wad files?
    [*]IOS9-64-v778.wad[*]IOS12-64-v269.wad[*]IOS13-64-v273.wad[*]IOS14-64-v520.wad[*]IOS17-64-v775.wad[*]IOS21-64-v782.wad[*]IOS22-64-v1037.wad[*]IOS28-64-v1550.wad[*]IOS31-64-v3349.wad[*]IOS33-64-v3091.wad[*]IOS34-64-v3348.wad[*]IOS35-64-v3349.wad[*]IOS37-64-v3869.wad[*]IOS38-64-v3867.wad[*]IOS53-64-v5406.wad[*]IOS55-64-v5406.wad[*]IOS56-64-v5405.wad[*]IOS57-64-v5661.wad[*]IOS61-64-v5405.wad[*]RVL-mios-v10.wad BTW, what is this WAD file? OK to install it before IOS70?[*]IOS70-64-v6687[FS-ES-NP].wad (THIS MUST BE THE LAST IOS TO INSTALL)[*]4.2U_Systemmenu_v481.wad (THIS MUST BE THE LAST TO INSTALL)
    Thanks

    In terms of order, all that matters is that you install IOS70-64-v6687[FS-ES-NP].wad before4.2U_Systemmenu_v481.wad. If you use YAWMM (and I think MMM does it too) it won't install the system menu until after that IOS is installed anyways.

    Technically, order for that too doesn't even matter as long as u make sure to install IOS70 before exiting the app. If you are using an older wad manager (without the brick protection features of yawmm), and you install the system menu but not the system menu IOS, then you leave the app, it will return to the homebrew channel just fine, but once you try to access the system menu, you will 'brick' (which can be fixed if you have proper brick protection in place.

    But to simply answer your question, just install IOS70 first just to play it safe, order of everything else doesn't matter

    and btw, that rvl-mios is an MIOS which is what the wii uses to play gamecube games
