    Follow this steps if you want to keep using your softmod and pirated wads WITH the new 4.0 update:

    1. Make sure you have installed the latest homebrew channel

    2. Make sure you have installed Waninkoko's newest cIOS

    3. Update via the official Nintendo way

    4. Now download "Cios downgrader" and use it in the homebrew channel.

    5. Have fun using the new System Menu and the new Wii Shop Channel [​IMG]

    You can still use your backed-up wads, and you can still ad new wads via wad-installer. You can also still use a Backup Launcher Channel if you have that installed.

    BUT WHEN YOU ARE AT SYSTEM MENU 4.0, DON'T DELETE CIOS OR THE HOMEBREW CHANNEL, YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO GET THEM BACK BECAUSE 4.0 BLOCKS THE TWIILIGHT HACK

    Questions?

    Post away!

    so....with the cIOS downgrader I can go back to the 3.2 and still be able to use the feature to launch games directly via SD???
    and it works also with the downloaded VC/Wiiware?

    Wow, is it really that simple? I figured there would be a lot more problems involved with this new update.

    You can dowgrade back to 3.2, but then you lose your ability to play games from an SD-card. This is a function of system menu 4.0, and when you go back to 3.2, there isn't such funcionality.

    Yes, it is really that simple.

    Nintendo wants to block NEW users from using homebrew, they don't care about the ones who are already using it. Thus there are no measures taked against an ALREADY installed homebrew channel or cIOS.

    Is Waninkoko's latest cIOS the same thing as cIOS36 rev8?

    I installed ios249 rev7 when I wanted to get the backup launcher working. Is ios249 an earlier version of cIOS36?

    If I were to uninstall ios249 and install cIOS36 would it provide the same funtionality in that allowing the backup launcher to work?

    If in fact ios249 is an earlier version of cIOS36, can I use it to downgrade instead of cIOS36?

    I assume that cIOS can't be deleted by the methods that Nintendo uses?

    hmm, you sure about that, as marcan says different on Hackmii, either TP again or a different game.

    I don't think the Twilight hack works anymore on 4.0.

    You SHOULD NOT be able to install cioscorp again, but I haven´t tested it by myself, so I can´t be sure about that.

    what CIOScorp does is patching the sysmenu IOS, to read backups, and then patch all other ioses to do the same. Sysmenu 4.0 uses iso 60 I think, and CIOScorp doesn´t patch that IOS version, so I think CIOScorp doesnt work on 4.0 until someone makes a new version that patches IOS60 too.

    I think not, the update just overwrites Softmii, so you would have to install it again. But again, i HAVEN'T tested it myself, so i'm not sure.

    This I have installed om my Wii:
    - Backup Channel
    - Homebrew Channel
    - Cios Rev7 (don't care about rev8 or just lazy)
    - And a bunch of WiiWare and VC games.

    These steps I did,
    - Update to 4.0E
    - And everything just worked fine after.

    Why do I need to use Cios Downgrader to run on my Wii? Everything is working perfectly.
