Another reason for suggesting Hermes v4 IOS222/223, I have seen 4 members report that their usb hdd had become corrupted (all games lost) after installing Hermes v5 and using USB Loader GX. The only IOS that USB Loader GX would access when booting would be IOS222. Once again (I posted this before), Hermes made his Hermes cIOS installer v5/5.1 to be used with uLoader, he doesn't care if it works with other usb loaders. Hermes v4 is known to be compatible and without issues when used with all usb loaders, that is why Hermes v4 IOS222/223 is recommended to users that are not using uLoader.
That being said, install IOS224 from hermes v5 and use that
See one of the posts of corrupted uSB HDD (most recent) - Post #95 HERE
and this post - HERE
here's another - don't miss this one
and one more - HERE

I failed to pull my hdd out, but got lucky I lost nothing. Wherever, Hermes cIOS v5, it should be in bold and red to pull the hdd out. I remember it reading to do that but didn't bother with it until I read what happened to the folks mentioned above.
Agreed. I ALWAYS remove my HDD or anything from the GC slots when doing any system modifications.....a good idea in my opinion. Going to add this to my guides (I know this isn't a common issue but nothing wrong with being safe).it should be in bold and red to pull the hdd out
Damn I suck!!!!
There's some hermes IOS 222/223 wads floating around somewhere, I wonder if the same thing can happen when installing a wad of IOS222/223 v5.
This is why I think doing everything manually is better than using the wads and automated installers. The user is actually forced to look at a guide, sometimes the guides have more useful information included in them. Some of the automated apps are nice, but the user has no idea what just happened when he used it. There's nothing wrong with introducing nusd to the user and having the user download his own IOS and pack it to a wad, now we have a knowledgeable user that wasn't spoon fed.
The cIOS wads actually install the exact same content as the installer. I agree that some users might learn more from the cIOS installer guides but that is only if the info on what you are installing is not included with the wad installs. In the end it all depends on how much the user wants to learn...not the guide being followed. It is more important to understand what a cIOS does, then understanding the method for install (although it does help).
Most guides for cIOS installers just included the needed IOS anyway....so linking a cIOS wad is basically the same thing. I used to share your same opinion about this subject "Use the installers rather then the wad" but after multiple tests using the wads I see it as the same thing. It works well, never had a corrupted cIOS install or failure to install the cIOS...they are very useful if you do a lot of testing or want to install quickly.
Both options are legitimate ways to install cIOS and included in the recommended guides on this site. That being said....any IOS or cIOS that is uploaded should be zipped or rared rather then linked in .wad form.

If you don't mind post syscheck of only IOS222-IOS250
<b>As stated earlier GX will not work well with Hermes cIOS v5+.</b>
Sorry to add more frustrations to this. I went through a bunch of forums. Everything i seem to find has to do wiith a usb loader. I am using Neo Gamma R7, ios249(rev20) and I also just installed Neo Gamma R9 b47, ISO249 (rev20) I went through the forums and updated the wads that were given. which was quite a bit of them. Sitll cant get the Mic to work.
Can someone PLEASE help if they have done it yet.. In NEO GAMMA..
