If you're trying to get your homebrew up to date, consider the "Modify any Wii" sticky. You can use it regardless of what you have now.

If you want to update your cIOS, download Waninkoko's cIOSX r20 installer and run it.

cIOSX rev 20 installer.


Select IOS249 for installer
Select IOS57 for base
Select Wad Installation or Network Installation. (grab the IOS57 wad from NUSD if you dont have an internet connection on your wii and put it on SD:/ 'root')

Or you can find the CIOS249[57 Base]Rev 20.wad and install that with a wad manager.

does it mean you install it on IOS 57?IOS are the go between the hardware and the software of the Wii. cIOS are customized IOS where a the code from a base Nintendo IOS is customized to allow us to do more with our Wii. Certain IOS can do certain things like access Wii Speak or the Wii Motion Camera; hence why certain games run off certain IOS, it depends on what they need. For the most part, using an IOS57 base provides the cIOS with compatibility for most games played.

How do you instal the cIOS to a base?You don't, the cIOS installer takes care of that. You just tell it what base you would like it to use, depending on what the games you want to play need. Do a search on cIOS and bases for your game if the default IOS57 base does not work for you.

apperently we can't install wads when we install that?This was an issue with Waninkoko's WAD Manager v1.5 which required a cIOS with an IOS38 base, this is no longer an issue with the latest WAD managers.

Umm, these are two separate issues. You should always have a BootMii Boot2 backup of your NAND, period. As for IOS236, it is often used by softmodders as a backup cIOS that can be used to install other cIOS or WADs if other cIOS are missing. Good to have, just in case, as a fallback.

How do you make USB Loader GX run as CIOS249 [57 Base] Rev 20. They said its not the game you have to run as 249.... its the loader itself?
Go into the settings game load screen of USB Loader GX, there you will see an option for what cIOS to use. This can also be specified on a per game basis by setting the same option in the game load settings screen from a game's disc spinning launch screen. Also, you have that backwards, in the case of most games, like CoD:BO to mention a current example, you have to run the game with a cIOS using an IOS57 base, that's the important part. The loader can use the same, or different depending on it's own needs.
