If that was the impetus for his query, the answer (as you've confirmed) could've been found here.
Your wii has many ios, these always run independantly from each other. Programs on the wii run on ios, when programs are loaded the ios they run on is first loaded by whatever is launching the program then you program starts. If the ios is out dated it may be incompatible with such program, which can lead to a black screen or an error 002. Programs on the wii are the system menu, games, channels, wiiware/vc, homebrew apps. When you load a program ios is reloaded/switched to the ios that runs such app. There are two methods to update ios, 1- update all ios files and forget about it, 2- only update ios files when needed to. Take your pick. If your not sure, you should probably just install the ios update.
Thank you very much for your guide.
It is very simple and help me a lot.
Recently, some of the game require update of newer version of Ciosd2xv7
Can I included those wad file to install during mod process?
Just don't install the v6 and v7 in the batch install, remove the v6 cios if you wish to have v7, then do the install.

Hello. Great guide - just softmodded my first wii, so many thanks.
Just to inform anyone with a similar problem:
I found that BannerBomb didn't work with system menu 3.1E.
I tried every version from the BannerBomb site, as well as troubleshooting many other things. But whatever I tried, the wii just displayed an empty SD card.
After using my Super Mario disk to install 4.1E, everything worked fine.
And I noticed the SD card logo on the wii homescreen, which wasn't there at all with 3.1E.
Anyway, bannerbomb and everything else has worked fine now, but I couldn't find any info on why it didn't work with 3.1E.
