    well, i just updated to 4.2u yesterday, having installed hackmii 0.5, and well, i tried to run usbloadergx, but it stuck on blackscreen so i though "maybe its not working cuz it cant find any ios to run isos" so i tried to reinstall cios38 rev14 but whenever i'm about to select which ios to install, the wiimote wont connect.

    1.- It enters the application connected
    2.- I press A to select ios
    3.- the wii drive lits up and then shut off
    4.- the wiimote disconnects and wont connect anymore

    so, what could be happening here? am i missing something before installing cios38 rev14? any help will be appreciated

    Well if you barely updated to 4.2 via nintendo, then installed homebrew and then tried to install cIOSrev14 it wouldn't even work. Because you don't have the trucha bug. (Follow the modify any wii guide) and also have you tried unplugging Gamecube memory cards?

    Well, you probably will have more luck with TBRMOD but I did it a different way.

    Run cIOS38 rev14 and select IOS250. You will get some errors. Try it again untill you get it to pass.

    I got it to install after about 4 attempts using different IOSes. Note: I only tried to use IOS249, 250 and 70. I have no idea why, but I tried 250, failed. 70, failed. 250 again, failed but then 70 again and it worked without any errors.

    I think using 250 to install it worked.

    just follow my guide, it will get trucha back in and delete those stub cIOS so you can reinstall your cIOS.

    Read your Wii manual for how to Sync your Wiimote permanently.
    A temporary sync will be lost whenever an IOS reload occurs.

    If you have not sync'ed your remote using the red sync button, you have not done a permanent sync.
