need help with 4.3u softmod, not sure about cIOS pack and ModPack
it was just recently that i have found this site after i had already soft modded my 4.3u wii. wish i had found this place first. anyways, from what i can remember...here is what i've done so far.
installed Homebrew Channel
2. IOS236 Installer v6
selected "Download IOS from NUS"
3. cIOSX rev21 (by waninkoko)
Select IOS version to use during installation selected "IOS236"
Select base IOS version selected "IOS36"
Select custom IOS installation slot selected "IOS250"
Select custom IOS installation mode selected "network installation"
4. Nand Backup (probably should have done this sooner. not sure if it was too late or if it matters)
5. Priiloader 0.7
saved all of the settings such as enabling blocked updates and region free
6. USB Loader GX v2.3 (All-In-One package boot IOS 249)
so far backing up games using the USB Loader GX does seem to work and i am able to play them from an external hard drive.
however, i'm worried about not installing the cIOS pack or the ModPack files mentioned in this guide. so what can i do to fix it? maybe just start the guide from chapter 2? i need some help on where to start. also is it necessary that i install 4.1u sm or can i stay with 4.3u? and i'm not really interested in all of the custom channels. i'm perfectly fine loading everything through the homebrew channel.
another thing i'm not sure about is how i went about cIOSX rev21 install. did i make the wrong IOS selections? can i fix it by redoing the install with the new version d2x cIOS (this time following a d2x cIOS guide provided here and not some random youtube video) or do i have to undo something first? not sure if it will just overwrite the previous install.
the main reason i've modded my wii is to be able to play my backups from an external hard drive. i just want to make sure i have maximum compatibility. i don't want to buy a new game and find out that i can't back it up and play it or perhaps not be able to play it at all.
so i've went ahead and installed d2x cIOS v7 and followed the Wiiflow nand emulation guide. everything seems to be working fine so far.
