    So I did the trucha bug patch I followed the steps from the CompleteSoftmodGuide, so I was confused cause it seemed like nothing changed how do I know it worked can I redo it to make sure?

    I also have some other questions I want to use USB Loader can I use a USB Flash Drive (ex. Sandisk Cruzer)?

    I also would like a good guide in doing that don't want to risk bricking Wii(I don't need bricks).

    Is that a question?

    If you expect help, you should provide enough information for someone to actually help you without having to start a game of 20 questions.

    These days d2x installer uses AHB provided by HBC.
    You can have 236 as an rescue against Nintendo update which never see daylight.

    Err...the IOS236 "thing" worked probably, but you need to use Homebrew that USES IOS236.

    For example, instead of a cIOS, you can use IOS236 to use Wad Manager.

    And for the USB Loader question, yeah if the flash drive is compatible, most should be. However its dumb to use them because modern games are at least 2-3 GB. I know this because I've tried (successfully, doh) to rip them myself.

    Wow. That is just sad. What do you think 236 is if not a cIOS? Of course it's not as bad as the nonsense in mike333's signature.

    It is. That makes it a cIOS. "c" is short for "custom".

    1) You don't need to install a trucha bug, installing IOS236 in a hack wii guide is all you need, as you can install wiiware/vc/etc with it, don't need trucha bug.

    2) Yes, you can, you just need to format it like a usb hard disk or sd card to wbfs and you're good to go.

    3) Install priiloader which will save you from banner bricks (most common brick I'd say,) it's not that easy to brick your Wii if you have any idea what you're doing and bad wads are the most common way which cause banner brick which priiloader can help you with. Also install bootmii as boot2 if possible, if not install it anyway as an IOS(254), and backup your nand for nand bricks. I'm pretty sure you can use priiloader if you brick to send you to an IOS installed bootmii if it's not boot2; if you need to redo your flash/NAND.

    What I mean is you don't need to put the trucha bug in an official IOS, as you can just use cIOS 236. Why does everyone in this forum have to be a troll?

    I wasn't trolling, your post didn't make any sense. You were saying that you "install a trucha bug".

    There are several IOS's that you want patched, mainly the System Menu IOS's. Despite what mike333's signature says, patching them offers both brick protection and brick recovery. There would be far more Wii's that were bricked (003 brick) if everybody used the official IOS. It also doesn't have any downside to them being patched, as long as it's done correctly.

    If you want to check if Trucha is in effect, try playing the uncensored version on Manhunt 2. :D

    Lol, why do you think ModMii (and pretty much every up to date guide) does it? The trucha bug allows you to run fakesigned recovery discs, the patched dip module allows running recovery discs without a modchip, patching IOS60 into all the slots protects against 003 bricks from updating and full bricks from downgrading.

    Of course you use 236 for installing things because IOS36 can be patched in more ways.
