    I'm going to try to install the Gamma version of the backup loader and I've got all the files that come from the zip file from http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=115623. Anyways, I need to install the cIOS that comes with the zip file, but I'm wondering if I need to install any previous cIOS's or even downgrade to an earlier IOS because I haven't installed any cIOS's before and I don't want to brick my Wii or anything like that. I haven't upgraded to a newer firmware since the one before the Oct. 23rd update.

    In other words, I've never installed any cIOS's before, is there anything I need to do prior to running cIOS Installer 0.3 gamma from Wiigator. Sorry if this is a noobish question, but I want to get it right.
