    Do not mix and match IOS, it's a recipe for a mess. Why would you want to do DarkCorp and a regular softmod, that's counter-productive. DC uses customized IOS to do its thing and you can't simply swap regular IOS (as in the exampe you gave, a la IOS 12) for DC IOS.

    You can do one of three things. Remove DC following this guide, then follow mauifrog's softmod guide. You can do nothing or ask the DC people if you're having a problem. Or you can remove it, do this softmod, and reinstall it. The latter-most option really wouldn't make sense to me.

    I'm Going to softmod my Friends Wii For him and He has no internet connection, So I'm curious If I need A internet connection To Install the wads Through Multi Mod Manager, If I already have them on an SD Card?

    Thanks

    You don't need an internet connection in order to follow this guide, but as a suggestion, why don't you just do the mod at your place? I am assuming you already have a modded Wii? Just use his console and controller. This way if you run into any questions or issues you could get them resolved quickly rather than having to go back and forth...get my meaning?

    DarkCorp v1.1 Full + your current guide = ?

    Thank you, nightstah, for providing the guide to remove DarkCorp. Direction is always appreciated.

    Mauifrog states, "If you would like to update your wii ios" - implying that this part of Chapter 2 is optional. The idea being that I could run the modpack and cios-pack and keep the IOS as is (e.g. DarkCorped). Is that right?

    Do you know if the IOSs within the IOS-Update.zip are the official, unmodified IOSs? I suppose I could run NUS Downloader and get a checksum against those within that zip and those that are DLed from NUS. But, if anyone knows ... it would save me some time.

    I suppose if the DarkCorp team actually kept their releases up-to-date to match the same commitment level as the WiiHacks community, then I could simply rely on them strictly for keeping the system IOS up-to-date for the latest titles to be functional - and utilize the WiiHacks guides for all cIOS updates.

    As I understand it - when new games come out, different IOSs need to be updated to newer revisions in order for them to work properly (e.g. Black Ops). So, I was under the impression that I could simply run through Mauifrog's softmod ANY wii guide to get a set of updated IOSs/cIOSs/etc.

    However, since DarkCorp is now excluded from the guide - I just wanted to make sure that I don't brick when attempting to update. I believe the best approach, going forward, is to follow your advice and remove DarkCorp (mainly because I won't be able to keep the IOSs up-to-date until the DarkCorp team gets around to building another release; granted they are still at it) and then run through Mauifrog's guide.

    That is, unless someone recommends something different ...

    I'm going to ask again, as you don't really address what I was getting at. What would be the purpose of softmodding (like maui's guide here), only to install DarkCorp afterwards? Do you understand why I'd be asking? DC install customized IOS that cannot be mixed and matched with regular IOS.

    The difference here is softmodding uses a cIOS (a Custom IOS) and you load your backups via backup loader; with DarkCorp, you're using the actual disc channel and a different method (those customized IOS) to do this.

    Doing both to most users would be viewed as ultimately an unproductive choice. If you insist on doing so for whatever purpose, I'd complete maui's guide before you entertain such thoughts.

    The updating your IOS thing applies to Wiis below 4.3 (but not those @ 4.3)

    i have a ton of disc back ups and prefer to use discs as my wii still can use them. i need the ability to be able to launch from the disc channel and not the the freakin you are stupid shit on my screen when using the disc loader. i enjoyed how my wii's menu looked like a legit wii when i wanted to play something now it can still look legit but i cant play my back ups. i am not rich and i can not afford a usb drive big enough to hold games and i dont care to have to run my computer all the time unless i am gaming on it. is there not a way to post a guide or directions to a new guide to install darkcorp with the new mod update?

    I have read most all (if not all) of your posts/threads, but I haven't found the answer to this. Since 2009, I've read countless forums and kept up with 'the scene' - also, I'm a software engineer - so this stuff makes sense to me - for the most part.

    May 2009, I followed a guide to originally softmod 4.0 - it used cIOSv7 - everything went great.
    April 2010, I followed Dogeggs 3.1-4.1 guide - everything went great.
    December 2010, I followed your guide to softmod ANY wii - everything went great. In this December 2010 guide, you provided the optional DarkCorp v1.1 Full install in Chapter 2 Step 4 - and I installed it - everything went great. And, now I want to update my Wii again to keep it current and able to play the latest games.

    My question/concern is this:

    Before I run through this latest guide (that no longer includes DarkCorp - and, to further emphasize my concerns - you make mention of not installing cIOScorp in the Brick Prevention thread) - To note, I realize that DarkCorp is basically cIOScorp v4.x and that cIOScorp is commonly used to refer to earlier versions of DarkCorp ... nonetheless ...

    Is it safe to install the IOS-Update wads (in your current ANY wii guide's Chapter 2) over the DarkCorp v1.1 Full install? DarkCorp documentation mentions that the IOSs that it modified have to be replaced by 'official, unmodified' IOSs in order to avoid brick situations (in its uninstall section) ... so, therein lies my concern.

    To note, I have no intentions of deleting nor uninstalling any wads - aside from the mothballed channels. I'd like to keep the DarkCorp functionality and update, if possible. But I would rather update and lose the DarkCorp functionality, if that's the case.

    To further explain myself - each zip contains several IOS wads that are installed - for example:
    DARKCORP_v1.1_Full.zip\DARKCORP-v1.1\IOS12-64-v269.wad
    IOS Update.zip\WAD\IOS-Update\IOS12-64-v526.wad

    1) Will running the IOS-Update in your current guide overwrite the DarkCorp's IOSs? - thus removing any DarkCorp functionality associated with that IOS - or will they simply sit next to eachother so that my Wii's SOC has both versions of the IOS? - referring here to your statement in 'Wii CIOS Explained' thread, Question 4 - "Installing cIOS is safe because it never modifies your original IOS, it just adds another one." As I understand it, DarkCorp modified/patched its IOS wads - not sure if that falls into the cIOS category or not.

    2) If it is overwritten, is your IOS wad an 'official, unmodified' IOS wad? If so, that would therefore remove any brick concerns that I have due to having DarkCorp installed on my Wii.

    3) It is assumed that if the IOS is overwritten, then I would lose the functionality that DarkCorp provided, is that correct?

    Thank you for all the effort that you have put into this community; it is immensely appreciated.

    There is an actual guide for removing cioscorps. When installing new ios/cios they over write the old ones....

    Hi, i accidentally unplugged my wii during wad installation and now when i turn on the wii priiloader comes up saying "Error autobooting systemmenu, could not open boot file
    IOS v60, Systemmenu v449"
    i can launch homebrew, have my nand backup but my bootmii is Bootmii/IOS. i also have internet connection.
    my wii is probably a LU64 type, i think.
    is there a way for me to restore it to 4.1u again?
    i also read that you can use DOP-Mii: WiiBrew Edition but is that safe?
    can i restore my systemmenu again by following this guide?

    Cheers

    Can you get into the homebrew channel via priiloader? If so just access mmm and install all wads again including the sm wads.
