    The hackmii installer can install bootmii, which allows the use of cboot2. You can use cboot2 to run the cIOS installer, and then use the cios installer to get whatever you want back on the wii.

    has this been tested?

    Btw maybe a stupid question, what is DOP-IOS used for? Has been a while I modded wii's and a bit outdated.

    Dop-IOS is used to update specific IOSes or downgrade specific IOSes. It also has the option to apply the fake signing (aka Trucha) bug to any of the IOSes (just need it on 36 and 60 or 70), among other things.

    when running the cBoot2 Installer that wiigator posted here on GBATemp, I get this output

    IOS Version: 00240d17
    from Internet: ....Done!
    net_gethostbyname failed: -6
    Error making http request
    Bad tik signature!
    Error: failed to load SDI module.

    The discription of the installer says that you need to extract BOOT2-v2-64.wad.out.wad before installation but that was not included in his package, what can I do about that?

    so does anyone know how to get the cBoot2 Installer to work?

    maybe the cBoot2 installer which is launched from the homebrew channel is being blocked, so if you already have it installed then you can use it because it loads with bootmii and has complete access/control of the console, but perhaps 4.2 blocked the installer.

    Any program made what to work with cboot2 will work with cboot2. It is to my understanding the cIOS rev14 installer was one of the apps made to work with it.

    All you need to do is get a cIOS installed. Everything will work then.

    I think we have a misunderstanding.

    I already have bootmii reinstalled and working, but for some reason I am having trouble with the cBoot2 installer. I can't get it installed so I can't then proceed to use it to install cIOS
