Rockband Instruments Using Hermes CIOS 222/223 and USB Loader GX - New discovery!
I have read just about every post regarding the rockband instruments on this site! Not completely understanding the CIOS's and after hours of reading I believe i understand the concept.
So I backed up my original RB2 game on to USB Loader GC and of course the instruments do not work from the USB HDD.
I installed Hermes CIOS 37 merged with 38 to CIOS222. (From uLoader package 3.2) My system is sitting at 4.1U. Using USB Loader GX R850
Here is the part that might help others, on NeoGamma I didn’t not see the option to select CIOS but I did on USB Loader GX. When I changed it to use 222 the screen turns black and the dvd drive light turns on. Almost like its looking for the game (of course i tried putting the game in and no change)
Interestingly enough when I put a copy of my game into the drive and use the DVD drive mount option in GX and select CIOS 222 it loads from the CD and the instruments work!!
Can anyone tell me why I cannot load it from the HD but i can from the copy via the same program!?
I tried to load 222 with softchip and it did not work at all.. Read Error.
Once again, I have read just about everything I can relating to this topic. It would be great if a senior mod could comment. I found it odd that the Hermes CIOS37-38 to 222 refused to load from the HDD..
If you cannot install Hermes 222/223 CIOS network install, do the offline one!!
++++ After trying to run the network Hermes 222/223 cios install with http errors occurring at part 7, then 15 I did the offline install, take the time to do it, it works for ROCK HERO
On your PC use NUS to download the below files (DO NOT CHECK THE PACK WAD BOX).
MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT CHECK THE PACK WAD BOX (We want the content not to be packed).
Go to Database>IOS>IOS37>v3612 then click on Start NUS Download.
Go to Database>IOS>IOS38>v3610 then click on Start NUS Download.
Go to Database>IOS>IOS60>v6174 then click on Start NUS Download.
You should now have 3 folders that NUS downloaded.
Now for the second part:
Download this file HERE Mirror Link : HERE and extract it.
Look on your SD Card and see if you have a folder similar to 00000001 if you do delete it.
We are now going to move the content that are in the above folder's to the proper place so Hermes can find it (MAKE SURE YOU GET THE PROPER CONTENT IN THE PROPER DIRECTORY).
Go to the extracted NUS Hermes Folder and go to the directory of 00000001/00000025/v3612 and then copy the content that is in the 0000000100000025v3612 folder to this directory. So you will have 00000001/00000025/v3612/content in the directory.
Go to the extracted NUS Hermes Folder and go to the directory of 00000001/00000026/v3610 and then copy the content that is in the 0000000100000026v3610 folder to this directory. So you will have 00000001/00000026/v3610/content in the directory.
Go to the extracted NUS Hermes Folder and go to the directory of 00000001/0000003C/v6174 and then copy the content that is in the 000000010000003Cv6174 folder to this directory. So you will have 00000001/0000003C/v6174/content in the directory.
After you get this done drag the 00000001 folder (that is in the NUS Hermes Folder) to the root of your SD card.
Now go back to the guide and follow the Hermes 222/223 section again.
