    Wii v 4.0E PAL bannerbomb hackmii HBC/dvdx /installed BootMii as boot2 nand backed up
    pressing home on wiimote in HBC shows
    IOS61 v19.26
    1.0.3
    Wii was v 3.4E

    I thought i did steps 6 to 9 of the online part of the ulitimate system menu 4.0 guide
    ulitimate system menu 4.0 guide
    but now looking at it i realise i never really completed steps 6 , 7 or 8

    What I did / didn't do
    I added cIOS38_rev13-Installer to the apps folder to install to IOS249 using Network install mode
    instead of installing the cIOS36_rev10-Installer to IOS249 as it says to in the guide
    because i thought cIOS38_rev13-Installer was newer and better .

    So starting at step 6 with a newer cIOS38
    i tried Installing cIOS38_rev13-Installer to IOS249 using Network install mode , but i had no IOS249 on the wii.

    Next i i tried Installing cIOS36 from guide
    6) Install cIOS36 rev10 to IOS249 using Network install mode
    but got this error
    Error installing Custom IOS ticket...Error! (ret = -2011)
    for some reason not sure why i ignored this Error! (ret = -2011) :/

    Next i messed up err again :/ I did step 8 before step 7 :/ then i did step 7 then 8 in the right order but nothing seemed to happen either way
    7) Downgrade system IOS files using IOS Downgrader . didnt notice anything
    8) Downgrade to 3.2 using cIOS Downgrader even if you are already on 3.2 run this . didnt notice anything

    Next i did step 9
    9) Run the 4.0 Updater YEP
    DOWNLOADING IOS SUCCESSFULLY
    37 ,38 , 50 ,51 ,53 , 55, 60 ,61 ,SHOPPING CHANNEL , PHOTO CHANNEL 1.1 , SYSTEM MENU 4.0E
    INSTALLING IOS SUCCESSFULLY
    37 ,38 , 50 ,51 ,53 , 55, 60 ,61 ,SHOPPING CHANNEL , PHOTO CHANNEL 1.1 , SYSTEM MENU 4.0E
    all downloaded and installed SUCCESSFULLY

    prompted to restart the Wii
    Pressed the A button the Wii Restarted

    Step 10 i went to the homebrew channel to do step 10 and the screen went black wii didn't respond
    10) Run the IOS60 updater NOPE didnt get this far
    say NO to install IOS61
    say YES to install IOS60
    say YES to patch IOS60
    say NO to install the shop channel

    So what does this mean im unsure what i need to do from this point .
    Do i try to run step 10 again ?
    or have i messed up ? im assuming i didnt install cIOS and i have a nintendo official firmware update .
    Or do i just need to install a cIOS somehow .

    What do i need to do in order to play HomeBrew Games ,emulators and Wii/VC/WW Games from SD/HDD
    when i get a HDD that is ,
    if i can get the Wii sorted.

    The Wii is working HomeBrew Channel is there ?
    and i have a Wii on system
    v4.0E
    IOS61 v19.26
    with possibly/definatly no cIOS installed .

    do i just need to install a cIOS to IOS61 ?
    step 10 says > say NO to install IOS61 so do i start here
    but i haven't done steps 6 , 7 or 8 either really i dont believe .

    So some help would be appriciated
    as im all confuzzed now

    Many thanks

    so Wii was v3.4E
    and now Wii is v4.0E
    Pal Wii
    I started online guide at step 6
    as i already installed HBC DVDx & BootMii from bannerbomb hackmii install before

    Trying the online guide what happened
    cIOS38_rev13-Installer added to folder to see if i could install instead of cIOS36_rev10-Installer
    I tried Installing cIOS38_rev13-Installer to IOS249 using Network install mode but had no IOS249
    so continued as per guide ish .
    6) Install cIOS36 rev10 to IOS249 using Network install mode
    Error installing Custom IOS ticket...Error! (ret = -2011)

    Stupidly i did step 8 before step 7 doh but it didn't seem to do anything so did 7 the 8
    7) Downgrade system IOS files using IOS Downgrader
    8) Downgrade to 3.2 using cIOS Downgrader even if you are already on 3.2 run this

    9) Run the 4.0 Updater YEP
    DOWNLOADING IOS SUCCESSFULLY 37 ,38 , 50 ,51 ,53 , 55, 60 ,61 ,SHOPPING CHANNEL , PHOTO CHANNEL 1.1 , SYSTEM MENU 4.0E
    INSTALLING IOS SUCCESSFULLY 37 ,38 , 50 ,51 ,53 , 55, 60 ,61 ,SHOPPING CHANNEL , PHOTO CHANNEL 1.1 , SYSTEM MENU 4.0E
    couldn't say NO to install at this point but this is at step 9
    not 10 so assume all is as should be
    Pressed the A buttonto Restart Wii
    went to homebrew channel to start step 10
    10) Run the IOS60 updater
    say NO to install IOS61
    say YES to install IOS60
    say YES to patch IOS60
    say NO to install the shop channel

    But clicking to start HomeBrew Channel and just got black screen waited a couple of minutes nothing happened
    couldn't restart Wii so had to
    take plug out .
    Wii wouldn't start at all no red light so assumed i had mullard the Wii .
    But after a bit with plug out the
    Wii started
    and i reinstalled HBC .

    Wii is now v4.0E
    So whats the smart move to make next please people
    try to continue from step 10 of online again ?
    any Wii hacking experts know the right step for me to take now ?

    Many Thanks

    Cheers kobykaan thanks for replying i will have a read up ,
    i was hoping i could just carry on from online guide
    step 10) Run the IOS60 updater , say NO to install IOS61 ,say YES to install IOS60 ,say YES to patch IOS60 ,say NO to install the shop channel
    or as nabster92 told me plenty of times start the offline from 8-10
    then do the online from step 6 ( what i was thinking of doing maybe swapping cIOS36 for cIOS38 )
    But because id read and wanted to do the online for a while ,
    i was convinced it should work .
    hmm but it hasn't .

    I posted again to make it clearer what actions i did
    and because not 1 person more had looked at it for many hours
    and id like to get this done .

    Also would you or anybody else have some idea where my Wii is at ?
    What is or isn't installed
    what it's position is as to the actions iv taken ?

    Many Thanks

    the power thing happened to me after about a month or 2 of no play, then i smashed mine about a bit and it worked lmao, sometimes it's good to be a rage!


    and, hmm, you should really be careful if you dont know what you're doing... i'm quite surprised this hasnt turned into an 'oh s*** i bricked it' topic.



    IOS downgrader downgrades all IOS' on the wii to hackable (trucha bugged) ones. this allows for homebrew to be used and for cIOS etc to be installed without any errors.

    downgrading to 3.2 does the same thing... but i dont know why the hell the guoide you were using said IOS downgrade AND downmgrade to 3.2... practically the same thing. unless you're on 4.0, obviously then downgrading to 3.2 would make you 3.2 lol

    ok reading back


    why are you trying to install IOS 60 again when it installed when you updated to 4.0 !?


    Try using the cIOS downgrader as mentioned above anyhow ...


    it needs to be on your sd card under SD:/apps/ then run it from HBC ......and see if you can then install 249 using wadmanger 1.4

    Hi kobykaan

    why do i need to downgrade and install 249 ? explain please so i may learn as all info is just do this or that without reason and explanations of why makes ,
    its hard to understand why or what the reasons are that we do the things we do .
    Im trying to understand sorry .

    I did step 9 and it just does what it does nothing i can do to stop anything at that point ,
    it downloads then says installed i saw no info telling me to do anything at this point and thought its as it should be .
    which is the last point i got to

    step 10 is were u can say or NO to install IOS61 etc...

    so am now on v 4.0E with IOS61 v19.26 showing in the Homebrew Channel

    do i need to downgrade to get stuff working off usb HDD ?? i thought 4.0E was good for it too ?
    but they say say no to IOS61 so im assuming i gotta do somthing with that ?
    i pretty much am totally lost at this point 12 hours later and getting no where .
    Sorry if this is all over the place but thats the best i can do .
    my head it hurtz .

    Many thanks

    by 249 he means IOS249, or cIOS (custom IOS)

    IOS is what the wii uses to function, like it's different sets of instructions for different operations.

    cIOS is not a real IOS, it was created for the sole purpose of homebrew/ hacking and is needed to run backup games through loaders, downgraders, wad managers (except wad manager 1.4) etc.



    so when he says install 249 he just means install cIOS_rev9.wad

    or any other cIOS that installs as 249. you can find it on the internet as a .wad and install it using wad manager, provided you have trucha bugged IOS that enable you to install .wad files.

    if you have firmware 3.2 installed, you have trucha bugged IOS, if you have 3.3v2 or higher, then you dont, and you'll need to get to 3.2 or use IOS downgrader (but IOS downgrader can only be used if you have cIOS installed so you'll have to fdind a guide around that)



    i suggest, comexDVDx installer to downgrade IOS35 (and give it the trucha bug again), then install cIOS_rev9.wad using wad manager 1.4 on IOS35.

    there are numerous guides to downgrade/ install cIOS on a wii around here, just take a look around everywhere lol
