    Thanks a lot Tealc !! you saved my life...

    I did install those two wads and now Wii is working fine..

    Only thing is neogamma 7 is asking me to update cios rev 14.

    Should i follow step 3 in "New 3.1-4.1 Softmod for ANY Wii" ???


    3. GET A CIOS

    You may want to check this video before you do this stage. The only difference is that you can select 'load IOS from SD card' instead of download from NUS.

    a) Go to Homebrew channel and run Trucha Bug Restorer, load IOS36, press 1, read the warnings then select 'downgrade IOS15', select to load IOS from SD card then let it do its job, keep an eye on what it is doing and make sure you select 'load from sd card' when it asks & don't get any errors.

    b) Run Trucha Bug Restorer again, this time select to load IOS15 on first screen using dpad left/right, then select the IOS36 menu & install patched (select 'yes' on all 3 patches) IOS36 to slot 36, again using IOS from SD card.

    c) Run Trucha Bug Restorer again, load IOS36 and this time select restore IOS15.

    d) Run cIOS38 r14 installer, select IOS36 as the one it should use and then select wad install.

    If you already have a cIOS installed then just use the cIOS rev14 Installer which you can also find in the root of my mediafire. Installing cIOSr14 will simply overwrite your existing IOS249.

    When overwriting you use the default IOS249. The only time you need to use IOS36 is really when you are running TBR.

    Done as you said and absolutely no problem

    Great help.

    Now as my Wii is softmoded 3.4U + neogamma R7 and able to play backup games,do I need to install separate IOS for each game or can I do it once for all.

    If yes, should I use Wad manager 1.4 and install all different IOS?

    hey Tealc,
    I read through this thread and it sounds just like my problem! I went to your mediafire and downloaded IOS 50 v4889 and SystemMenu-NTSCU-v385.

    When i load wad manager through the preloader, it freezes on the disclaimer splash screen. I'm not sure if its a true freeze or the wiimote just stops communicating with the wii but I can't "press A to continue".

    Is there a work around for this?

    Thanks for all your help with us noobs!!!

    Freezes in Wad manager and other IOS249 dependent apps can be because you have not got cIOS installed properly.

    Signcheck will output a list called signcheck.csv to your SD of your IOS with versions and whether Trucha is enabled which should help you understand if your cIOS is any good. Grab signcheck from wiibrew and run it through HBC.

    Or just run Trucha Bug restorer to make sure you got it right.

    The bootmii folder is a copy of my PAL bootmii folder. It will start bootmii/boot2 if you have it. Preloader is easier to use than bootmii as bootmii does not have Wiimote support.

    You can run tbr a number of ways. The easiest for you is probably to boot it using the install/load file option in preloader. Rename it to boot.dol and place on your SD root, making sure it's the only one there.
