    Got Wii Sports Resort (REAL) to play, now backups are not booting up???

    I somehow got Wii Sports Resort (which I bought) to work (after getting the #002 error) and now all my backups which I have previously had which used to work do not work anymore. In my opinion, since I don't see the "IOS249____" on the bottom of the backup loader screen (which I was told has to be there for when the backup loader recognizes the dvd), I would assume I need the new cIOS38 rev14... Now, when I download the rev14's dol file and place it on the root of the SD card, I go to open up WAD manager and the new dol file for rev14 is not there!

    I have gone in circles a few times, and the search didn't find me any results similar to my actual problem. Does anyone have any ideas? Should I just uninstall all the other cIOS's and start from new?

    edit: The backup loader which I am using is WiiGator... Also, this is the screen which I get...

    First off the cios38 rev14 is not a dol file, its a wad. And you dont use wad manager to install it. You do put the wad in the root of your sd card though. And you download cios installer and put that boot.dol in your apps folder.

    OK, So I put the .wad file "IOS38-64-v3610.wad" into the root of the SD Card... Where/how do I install that then? And how do I install the cios38-rev14-installer folder after it was put into the \apps\ folder?

    A wad file goes in the wad folder on your sd card, Then you need to use a wad manager to install the wad. EX: wad/xxx.wad.

    If you downloaded the dol file like I did. Then you need to create a folder in your apps folder and rename the dol file to boot.dol
    EX: apps/cios38r14/boot.dol.
    PLEASE SEARCH, READ, AND THINK BEFORE DOING ANYTHING.

    As weird as this sounds, I did that.

    First I put the .wad file into the wad folder, then plugged into the wii and ran wad manager. It was NOT in the list.

    Then I copied the folder into the \apps\ folder (which included boot.dol file, meta.xml, icon.png files.. With this, I have no idea if that renders it "installed" or not. I tried to straight up run wiigator and it still had the same problem.

    I'm usually very tech savvy, but I just can't seem to understand all this Wii Hacking stuff...


    Final question: Once I am (hopefully soon) successful in installed cios36 rev14, would this allow new and old backups to work, and will it ALSO allow me to play real games like Wii Sports Resort??

    The version I downloaded cIOS38_rev14-Installer.rar just extracting straight into the apps folder on SD and I was able to launch the boot.dol through HBC and install the cIOS to the Wii NAND.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    You may find it easier to run the cIOS38_rev14-Installer, and select install from network instead of wad. I did this and it worked a treat. My WSR runs on rev 14, but it also ran on rev9.

    i'm running on rev 13a. WSR doesn't work on it.

    is there any disadvantage to going to rev 14?
