    what's the proper way to do this? I've managed to do this , but I'm still not sure , because sometimes I make a few mistakes and then have to backtrack, and fix things ( upside down HBC, for example)

    I want to do everything in proper order , once and for all, so I don't need to go and fix stuff.

    Am I supposed to update to 4.2 first? then install the HBC?

    but according to the guide , I need to run WAD manager to do the update.

    so , if I have a console that's below 4.2, is it best to install HBC and then update to 4.2?
    or, am I supposed to update to 4.2 , and then follow the guide for modding a 4.2 console?

    the instructions tell u to update first using the update.zip then go through and use modify.zip
    its very clear plain and simple, if u read it u shouldnt makemistakes

    I'm getting an error when I try this part.

    Installing cIOS & Patching the System Menu IOS
    Run WAD Manager 1.5
    Press + on:
    cIOS202[38+60]-v4.wad
    cIOS222[38+37]-v4.wad
    cIOS223[38]-v4.wad
    cIOS249-v17.wad
    cIOS250-v17.wad
    IOS70-64-v6687[TB+ES_diV+NAND].wad
    Press 1 to install the cIOS's.
    Press home to exit.

    I try to install cIOS202 , but its gets to Installing ticket .... then, error! (ret = -2011)

    what's that mean?

    if the system was below 4.2 originally , I don't need to do this part below, right?


    "Restoring the Trucha Bug
    Run GP DOP-IOS MOD
    Press A to continue.
    Go down to select Install an IOS that accepts fakesigning.
    Keep pressing A until it takes you back to the IOS selection screen.
    Choose IOS36 and start the stub removal process if any are installed."

    You will need to delete the stubbed IOS's before you can install cIOS's.
