    Unhappy I'm Stupid - Can someone give me a hand?

    Okay...
    I got my wii modded to a version that can play PAL, NTSC, JP whatever is it according to the seller. Homebrew channel available also.

    When I first try to install wiiware, instead of running boot.dol from the WAD manager, I accidentally click the boot.dol from folder CIOS.
    I notice this CIOS is CIOS37.

    Now when I got things right and try to install wiiware through wad manager, i got the error,
    Installing WAD, please wait...
    >>Installing title...ERROR! (ret = -1029)

    I search search search the internet and this post seems like similar case to me,
    WAD Manager & Install Error(s)

    Now...
    Can I uninstall the cios37? (How to?)
    After uninstall do I need to install a new cios? (How to?)
    How cios impact my wii? (Currently i still can play all wii games)

    Thanks!

    with WAD Mgr , u install the abcde.wad file in SD card;
    with WAD Mgr and the abcde.wad file in SD card, u can UNinstall as well !

    last resort-- use AnyTitle Deleter to delete cios37.
    wii game need the appropriate IOS to boot. cios supplement IOSs for similar purposes. lack of adequate IOS/cIOS may end up blackscreen at game loading.

    new games require new IOS. u would like to install more & newer IOS/cios as needed, as time goes by. it's ur call !

    Thanks but your solution sounds complicated...
    First, can i uninstall cios37? Or should I uninstall the cios37?
    As you said IOS/CIOS used to support games, if i uninstall cios37 will i unable to play some games?
