    Just to understand the order of IOS's involved, if I have a virgin 4.2U Wii and want to use Waninikoko's cIOS to run WAD manager, I need to:

    Downgrade IOS15, to Trucha patch IOS36, to install IOS38, which installs IOS249 and IOS250... [​IMG]

    Is this correct? Thanks in advance.

    You don't install IOS38, the cIOS installer patches it directly from the internet or a wad and instslls it to IOS249 and IOS250

    @Old8oy: Yes, I know that guide very, very well. I just wanted to know whether I was actually installing and IOS or patching one.

    @tattar8: Thanks!

    I have a safer procedure where overwriting IOSs from nintendo isn't _ever_ needed.

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=190855

    You can use a simplified one than mine yet cleaner than the popular trash method, however. This works with 4.2 afaik:
    - TBR: Downgrade IOS15 // We modify nintendo crap here, but it's not part of the boot chain AFAIK so it's safe
    - TBR: Use it to truchabug 36 with all patches, saved as 236
    - TBR: Restore IOS15 // We restore the nintendo crap as it was, as we don't need it anymore
    - Anytitle deleter mod v6b (it's the only one that allows selecting IOS on startup afaik) -> select 236 -> delete stubs for ios 222,223,249,250
    - newest CIOS Installer -> select loading 236 -> install latest cios
    - newest cMIOS Installer -> select loading 249 -> install latest cMIOS

    Have fun.

    How's that any different than what the existing guides do? And I like how the first step that you posted contradicts the first sentence you wrote.
