    1) Format your SD card to FAT16. Copy the contents inside the sd folder to the root of your SD card

    <b>If you have bootmii with a nand backup, the homebrew channel, and cios installed already you may skip to step 8</b>

    2) Insert the SD card in the Wii and go to Data Management>Channels>SD Card press YES on the dialog box that asks to load boot.dol

    3) Install the Homebrew Channel and install BootMii as boot2 if possible or as an IOS if boot2 is not available.

    4) Launch Bootmii (if you installed to boot2 just reset the system if you installed to IOS go to the HBC and press the Home button)

    5) Open the config menu (gears) and choose backup NAND (green arrow) wait for it to finish and restart the Wii

    6) Run Trucha Bug Restorer and choose "IOS36" and pick "Downgrade IOS15" and "Download IOS from NUS" then restart

    7) Run Trucha Bug Restorer again and choose "IOS15" then "IOS36 menu" set "IOS to slot 36" and "yes" "yes" "yes" to the 3 options then press "Install patched IOS36" and "Download IOS from NUS"

    8) Install cIOS36 rev10 to IOS249 using Network install mode

    9) Downgrade system IOS files using IOS Downgrader

    10) Downgrade to 3.2 using cIOS Downgrader even if you are already on 3.2 run this

    11) Run 4.1 Firmware-Updater.

    12) Using Dop-IOS install IOS60 v6174 with Sig Hash Check.

    13) Install preloader. On the install screen press 1

    14) Set your preloader settings. In preloader hacks enable "Skip disc update check"

    1) Extract the files somewhere on your hard drive such as C:\wii\ and run prepare.bat and choose your desired version

    3) Format your SD card to FAT16. Copy the contents inside the sd folder to the root of your SD card

    11) Run WAD-Manager_v1.4 again. Choose IOS249 and install WADs 01-18. If WAD Manager freezes during installation just try again from the WAD it froze on.

    12) While still in WAD Manager install SystemMenuv###.wad

    13) It is highly recommended that you install preloader to prevent bricks. On the install screen press 1

    14) Hold reset while powering on to access preloader and set preloader settings. In preloader hacks enable "Skip disc update check"

    <a href="http://www.gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=158884" target="_blank">http://www.gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=158884</a>

    If you want Gamecube backups install the custom MIOS and use Gamecube Backup Launcher 0.2

    <a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=142535" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=142535</a>

    You can also now install a USB Loader. I reccomend USB Loader GX

    3) Install CIOS60BF.wad

    google "CIOS60HK.zip" or get "cios60.wad" from the offline guide

    4) Your system menu will now say "System Files Corrupt" but dont worry! just hold reset and launch the Homebrew Channel and install Preloader 0.29 AGAIN

    <!--fonto:Arial Black--><span style="font-family:Arial Black"><!--/fonto-->How do I fix Homebrew Channel going to a black screen?<!--fontc--></span><!--/fontc-->

    reinstall it with bannerbomb

    <!--fonto:Arial Black--><span style="font-family:Arial Black"><!--/fonto-->What if I cant install Bootmii? What if the NAND backup fails?<!--fontc--></span><!--/fontc-->

    Chances are you will be fine, its just another security measure which I have never needed to use.

    <!--fonto:Arial Black--><span style="font-family:Arial Black"><!--/fonto-->Is my console BRICKED!?<!--fontc--></span><!--/fontc-->

    If you have Bootmii boot2 or preloader then you are fine. Turn your Wii OFF to the RED light and then hold RESET and turn it on then load the HBC
    If you have cIOS installed run cIOS Downgrader
    If you dont have cIOS installed use the Offline Downgrade method

    <!--fonto:Arial Black--><span style="font-family:Arial Black"><!--/fonto-->Will this work with Softmii? MiiWii? old version of cIOS? etc<!--fontc--></span><!--/fontc-->

    Theres no need to uninstall anything first. You can install CIOSCORP on 4.0 using this guide

    <!--fonto:Arial Black--><span style="font-family:Arial Black"><!--/fonto-->Will this work with Starfall? Preloader 0.28?<!--fontc--></span><!--/fontc-->

    No. You MUST use Preloader 0.29. Starfall hacks wont work on 4.0. Use the latest preloader hacks.ini

    <!--fonto:Arial Black--><span style="font-family:Arial Black"><!--/fonto-->Do original discs work with/without CIOSCORP?<!--fontc--></span><!--/fontc-->

    Yes. CIOSCORP and CIOS60 only affect Backup Discs

    Are you sure you can install CIOS60BF.wad when you have the preloader 0.29 already installed? it won't fuck things up as preloader is using IOS60? [​IMG]

    I dont think its an issue since preloader copies over the systemmenu.dol but if someone can confirm this i would appreciate it
    Other than that the only thing you would need to do is install CIOS60 and then install preloader again I can confirm this working

    I'm waiting for an answer on this too (can't test it myself as i have no way to recover from a brick/2nd wii) but it's safer to install CIOS60BF BEFORE preloader (just after 4.0update). And you need cioscorpV2 not cioscorp.

    Thanks, I might do this later, but why do all the guides tell us not to install IOS61 and the Shop Channel?

    Just had the corrup error message, thought shit another bricked wii, but just loaded up HBC and installed preloader again, worked like a charm. Now will be installing cioscorp in a moment.

    Still thinking about updating to 4.0. The SD functions look nice.
    As I understand it, Waninkoko's updates leaves trucha intact in IOS files. Does that mean I can also still run trucha signed discs from disc channel? I have of few of them (such as a patched Manhunt 2 with no censoring). I have a hardmodded Wii.

    If you have a hard mod and the cIOS files installed then yes trucha discs should work and if not you can always use GeckoOS or Backup Launcher to run trucha discs

    So MANY different guides out there... not sure what to believe anymore.

    I was told to do it the following way from this thread.

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=143281
    http://www.yafaze.com/wii/menu4.0hack.html

    Assuming you already have cIOS36 v7 or V8 installed.


    1. Put the contents of the 4.0hacktools.rar file on the sd card.

    2. Put contents of Waninkoko's 4.0 updater on the sd card

    3. Open Homebrew Channel and run IOS60 installer, when it boots it will ask the following:

    "do you want to download and install IOS61?" SAY NO PRESS B (because it's done later anyway)
    "do you want to download and install IOS60?" SAY YES PRESS A
    "do you want to patch IOS60?" SAY YES PRESS A

    After it's installed IOS60 it'll ask:

    "do you want to download and install the newest shop channel?" SAY NO PRESS B. (because it's done later anyway)

    Restart Wii.

    4. Now use Waninkoko's 4.0 updater and follow prompts.

    5. Install cIOS36 v9

    6. Install preloader 0.29.

    So which is the correct way???

    Could you please explain if I need to remove Softmii 2.1.1 in order to do this or let me know the steps I would take having Softmii 2.1.1 and 3.2U?

    I'd really like to upgrade to 4.0 to load wads from SD, but not lose the ability to load backups from disc channel.

    Thanks a lot.

    Also, is it safe to use the CIOSCORP installer that comes with SoftMii rather than installing them all seperately?
