    Gambia, The
    I want to find out which of the games not working with the cIOS36rev7, work with cIOS37 or cIOS55. For this purpose i have written a multi cios_installer which modifies IOS36, IOS37 and IOS55. This installer lets you choose between IOS36 and IOS37 dip(IOS55 dip is incompatible with the patch) and where to install the cIOS. There's a slight chance some of the newer games will work with cIOS37 or dcIOS55. Rock Band for example seems to work with cIOS37. Please post only about games which require a newer IOS than IOS36, the old games not working like Red Steel need to be patched to use IOS249(or wherever the cIOS is installed). The new Need for Speed does not work with this dcIOS55, a new dip is required for this.

    Notes:
    - There's no trucha support for IOS55, and don't ask me to do this, my coding skills are very limited
    - Just use 1:1 copies: decryption, update removing, brickblocking and whatever cause only problems
    - You can see the required IOS in SoftChip while booting("IOS requested by the game:") and with Wiidiscinfo
    - i call the cIOS55 from this installer dirty custom IOS(dcIOS), because it does not use its own dip
    - online and offline installation supported, look at the readme.txt


    Requirements for testers:
    - 3 or more backups working
    - 0 or less bad burn problems in the past
    - knowledge about how to compile SoftChip
    - handling of multiple installed cIOS
    - basic understanding of what this installer does
    - not being a pirate

    If you don't fulfill all of these requirements, please don't ask me for help, just be patient and wait for the results

    Please feel free to upload the installer elsewhere!

    I could help, but I bricked my wii yesterday.... With a bad channel....
    ...Waiting for triwing to take apart my gc pad to use the recovery-mode using savemiifrii.
    I'm sure at the end of the week I can test your multi cios installer, which is quiet a good idea, I guess.

    Although I'm running on patched IOS37 for some time, now and I experience same issues as on IOS36 with same games...

    [​IMG] no starfall? ah well i guess it's more of a choice not a mandatory thing to do.
    after you fix it you might wanna starfall it.

    Hey Wiipower... got a question...
    Couldn't you just patch the games to use a different IOS with Waninkoko's IOS Version Patcher v1.1 before you burn them?

    I could, but i'm interested in newer games. The games which need to be patched are the old ones(as far as i know). Oh, and i prefer REAL 1:1 copies, i still want to add on the fly patching for this, but it's more complicated as it seemed first. Waninkoko's IOS Version Patcher patches the tmd inside the dvd. It seems that the games load the tmd themself, there's no way to hand it over to the game for now.

    so it's older games that need testing with cios37 and newer ones that need testing on dcios55 and cios36?

    No, the old games don't need to be tested, you could test them patched with Waninkoko's IOS Version Patcher, but i'm more interested in newer games.


    Please always add the IOS requested by the game, thank you

    PS: cIOS36 is unchanged from WiiGator's one

    3 out of 60 sounds good, but if i wrote write something else in the 1st post, the people with 50% or more bad burns would flood the thread with games working with cIOS36. Sorry for being negative.

    Well... I have starfall installed... but as i didn't have a gc pad, I didn't patch the recovery mode...
    ...I know... bummer.... a big one... But I have all other starfall patches at place. So I think when I get a gc pad tomorrow, I'll try the savemefrii method to get into recovery mode and then hopefully, my original zelda will autoboot...
    If not, I'll get me a modchip.

    So after I'm back again, I'm going to test out the multi ios patcher.
