    Does This look Healthy??

    I'm a bit worried that I may have had got things wrong along the lines somewhere, when I softmodded my Wii.
    I am about 80% confident I haven't, but I was wondering if you could assure me.

    Here is my SysCheck:

    Spoiler



    ^Qoes that Look "Normal"

    I followed most of GAF's guides to help me hack my wii(How to get started if your really dumb), which I found were really concisive, clear, organised, and well thought out.
    I used them to restore the Trucha Bug on my wii, and enable me to use the CFG USB Loader so i can play the games(I own), from a USB stick. Thing is, I didn't restore the Trucha Bug in the cIOS's that GAF point's out need changing/modifying/adding the first time I hacked my wii, which is kind of my first question.
    (removed none wiihacks guide)

    ^Qoes that matter?

    Also, I made the Big no-no mistake of Listening to a Guide on youtube.
    It was a guide that, if followed, was suppose to enable the Gamer to use an Action Replay APP in the Homebrew Channel. I went cross-eyed, trying to fathom how it could possibly work, so I just gave up my comprehension of the mechanics of what might actually be happening, and just rolled with it, follow the YT guide.
    (removed failtube link to cheating)
    Please, at this point, dont go "Oh, you listened to a YT guide, well I'm not helping you then"

    I downloaded the package, put the bits and peices in the SD card where the video stated they belonged. The package contains quite harmless, non-IOS modifying things like AR Loader 1.14 NuGaSa, some and GCI save files. But it also contained a MIOS patcher, and a "cIOS rev 21" Patcher. Both its MIOS and "Alternate" patchers failed to opperate, but its cIOS rev 21 worked a treat. I had Previously used a cIOS rev 20 patcher, that I got from GAF, which leads me to my next question.

    Q:Are cIOS patchers universal? They are all made by waninoko, right?
    (The Patcher that I got from the Megaupload link in the YT video, when loaded in hombrew displayed the same "graphical signature", I.E. it looked aesthetically identical to the pop-up boxes for the cIOS rev 20 patcher I got from GAF.

    Q: Will I have problems down the line, by patching IOS 249, as before I patched it, It was a stub. I mean could I probably take a blanket guess, and say "No", right?

    Q: I gave up with the MIOS patchers, because they didn't work, so I just used Dop-Mii, to downgrade my MIOS from V10 to V4, will I have problems down the line? (I think I may have used my newly installed/patched IOS 249, for that, I cant quite remember)

    Stop posting external guide and failtube vids! No your sys check does not look right. Follow this guide if you don't want to fail again.

    When you say my Syscheck 'Doesn't look right' what specificly does not look right.
    I am able to play ALL the games I have played recently. (F-Zero GX, :-P)

    Assuming the cIOS only patched IOS249, that wont cause major problems for me right?
    And all the MIOS versions from NUS that you get from DOP-miis Servers all work on almost all GC titles right?

    You are missing patches on some IOS I would patch, have more stubs than you should, have a screwed up Hermes install, old MIOS, no cMIOS. A lot of screwy stuff going on there IMO. Just fix yourself with the linked guide if you want to avoid problems down the road.

    Thankyou very much Darkcide666, I will definately bare that in mind.
    Except, I thought one of the rules of safety was "Dont patch anything bellow IOS200" :-/

    I know the Hermes Patches are important for whatever reason I cant quite understand. :-/

    I've only tested my Wii out on F-Zero GX, since I patched my IOS 249, with the default IOS(first screen), using IOS58 V6175 as a base, using the patcher I got out of the "Failtube" link.
    So I dont know whether my new Re-IOSed Wii will work with my Wii games at all now. :-/
    (I haven't tryed them)
    My Philosophy is "Dont try and hack what is already doing extra non-default beneficial cool stuff, as well as "If it aint broke/frozen/"having a dicky problem" lol don't fix it"
    Ironicaly of course I broke that motto by trying to do hack in AR so I could Cheat in my copy of F-Zero GX.
    (The ships accelerate far to quickly for a Newbie F-zero player)

    If anyone thinks I might have problems now with the Following Discs please let me know. :-) Thankyou.
    I'll List them here, if you think you know off the Top of your head what Title/Disc wont work with what IOS listed in my Syscheck please tell me.
    Thank you very much In advance.

    That's don't delete anything below 200. I have just about every IOS patched even though it's not really necisarry to patch them all. I just like to be different and do it because I can. The only problems I have ever had patching IOS is if you touch 34 or 58. The HBC will flip upside down on you but it's an easy fix.

    I think you are going to have a problem using 58 as a base. It's not a very stable base IMO. In my experience testing 58 as a base your games load lightning quick but at some point they will freeze or crash. Whether it is in your first couple of minutes loading and starting or an hour and a half into playing. Something like 56 or 38 would have been a better choice. You can install different bases and revs into different slots. As I've previous recommended you should follow the linked guide instead of piecing things together from around the net. It is a very thorough, simple, fail proof, and proven method of properly hacking your Wii.
