Wow this just shows how out of date I am. I basically never ask for help on here because for the most part I know what I am doing but after reading the entire guide twice, I still dont understand it. Just so you know, I have not updated ANYTHING since December when I got Black Ops to work. So I have cios249 Rev 19 (for when I played Black Ops on usb loader gx) and installed ios224 (hermes 5.1 or whatever it is) so I could play the game on cfg usb loader along with using my headset. I honestly dont even think I have any other IOS' installed as I have only used the 2 I mentioned above. So is this new cios needed for all the new games or just makes the problematic games much easier to use? I wouldnt even know where to start. I guess being so glued to Black ops since December really set me back. I just dont want to sound like a noob because I deffinintly am not one.
hi red ghost and thanks for your last post.

my softmod was done using shadowsonic 2's guide aprox 16mths ago.
on my sd card the apps folder does'nt have a usb gx folder only the following sub folders.
any title deleter mod.
wad manager v 1.5.
hermes cios installer.
trucha bug restorer v1.12.
i have another folder on the sd titled config.inside this there is 3 .cfg files.(1)gxgamefavourites.cfg. (2)gxgamesettings.cfg. and (3)gxglobalconfig.cfg.
also on the sd root there is a folder titled wad,and inside it contains the usbloader gxr938 wad.
there is nothing else on the sd relating to usb gx.
i havent changed anything yet till i clarify what im about to do is correct.
do i delete the entire folder titled config?.
do i then replace the r938 wad with the new 2.2 version in the wad folder?.
and should i update the wad manager from 1.5 to 1.7 first?.
again thanks for the help.
Kind of both. The older waninkoko cIOS249 v19 is based on IOS38. Using the d2x installer to put different bases into different slots is very handy. Base 56 works with 99% of the games out there. Base 57 works great with Black Ops. Make sense? I know now that you could use different bases for v19, but at that time period I never really saw too much about it....of course I was much more noobish then...lol

Ok but like I want to know is... is it a must install or what? I mean I did see that you need it installed for the driver san fran game but is it just that game or will it be needed for all the newest games? I dont mind using my current setup as long as my games still work. But if I do need to install this, then I have no choice. I just dont understand the guide in its entirely just yet.
Well, if it isn't broke, don't fix it. Some games like you mentioned may need it in the future, but if you have no need for it now then don't install it. It is entirely up to you. If at some point in the future you get a new game and you can't get it to work, I'm sure we will all still be around to help! :)
Hi, I've read your problem 'cause i've had the same one. Hard to find a direct solution in the web, but I just figured out and finished the installation of the files succesfully using d2x installer ver. 2.2. The "Working IOS" skipping problem doesn't exist anymore.

i have successfully installed and updated the wad manager to 1.7 and the usb gx to 2.2.
thanks for your help on that.
before i proceed to install the d2x v6 wad i need to ask a question.
do i use the 2nd method in your opening post?.
again many thanks for your time in answering these posts.
I am running cfg loader v70 (249) on a NTFS partition with a wbfs folder. I had cios 249 r19 and hermes 222 v4 and everything was working fine except I was getting a crash on the final battle of a certain dual layer game. I updated to d2x v6 and now whenever I try and start any game that uses 249 I get an immediate error saying "set frag: -128" and the error :128.
Any ideas what could be causing this? I tried doing a complete uninstall using dop-mii and reinstalling the 249 wad (the link on first page) using wad manager 1.7 with ios36 fakesigned and still getting the same problem. Do I need to blow away my existing cfg loader install or something? Almost all my games are configured to run under 249 except for sakura wars and monster hunter trii which I have set to mload-222. If I change a game to use mload-222 they mostly work. If I revert back to my old cios249 r19 it works again.
I installed d2x_rev6_cIOS250.wad using 236, and I ran Driver san Francisco but it freezing at loading screen
any idea ?
I'm sure you gotta turn ios reload to on and save it. I'm running CFG v70 works for me.
