I have a 4.1U wii, and I don't understand what I have to do here: (Step 5)
"5b-Update Ios Files
Select Ios, Mios, BC- Press A
Install updated IOS files- 9 12 13 14 15 17 21 22 28 33 34 35 37 56 61
Press + to install
Install the newest Ios versions, without patches.
*If you already have the latest ios versions, you can skip installing it*"
When I select Ios, Mios, BC, it shows me that I should chose the ios249 to install(again?).
I don't see anything about "Install updated IOS files- 9 12 13 14 15 17 21 22 28 33 34 35 37 56 61"
And also, it keeps saying something about my version being a stub. What does tha mean?
Could someone please explain to me exactly what do here. Thanks!
Ipsa scientia potestas est.
Warning: Piracy is NOT supported. Word your questions carefully.
Few more questions :
1 . If you update your firmware ,does it also update your IOS'es , right ? Can you recommend games that have the 4.2 system update on them ?
2. Which one of these are absolutely necessary for a PAL console ? I see cIOS 30 is for NTSC , cIOS70 is for Korean...Why do you install ios16, cIOS30, cIOS36, cIOS50, cIOS60, and cIOS70?
Ios16 enables the Pink Fish disk to run if needed, which can do a few useful things.
cIOS30, when installed prevents lu64 wii from bricking if they install 3.2, if cIOS30 is not removed in the process.
cIOS50 prevents the stupid upgrade downgrade brick, same with cIOS60.
cIOS70 prevent the 003 error found on the Korean wii. Version was changed to 54321 do discurage their uninstallation.
I think your guide needs more popularity . I asked for help in a mIRC channel and they all went crazy "We don't support that guide here !! " .
Offering a virginize option would increase people's confidence in your guide , if the optical drive breaks or the bluetooth module or whatever they can take it back clean to warranty .
Not speaking for the author....this is my opinion only.
1. Yes if you update from a disk it installs IOS as well....this should only be done BEFORE modding. I recommend updating to 4.1 not 4.2, you can Buy/Rent/Borrow NSMBW and update with it. (Before modding ONLY)
2.All of them can be installed on ANY console without Issue.
If you need support for this guide...ASK HERE. If certain people choose not to support it then that is their prerogative. The guide is well supported...right here in this thread. I don't see any reason to Virginize and Never will. It is still possible to do with this guide, but I don't think it is necessary.(IMO Only)
Damn I suck!!!!
I was thinking of 4.2 because it has IOS'es more up-to-date than 4.1 .1. Yes if you update from a disk it installs IOS as well....this should only be done BEFORE modding. I recommend updating to 4.1 not 4.2, you can Buy/Rent/Borrow NSMBW and update with it. (Before modding ONLY)
I want to totally skip step 5b ( updating IOS'es with Dop-Mii )
About virginizing.. what do you do if your wiimotes stop working ( bluetooth module fails ? ) . I do think it is necessary to know how to send it clean to the warranty .
I replace it myself. Anyway, if you are so worried about it then follow another guide. You are getting off topic...if you have a question regarding an actual step in this guide then feel free to ask. If you don't then I suggest you explore the other guides.
Damn I suck!!!!
I have an older Wii...LU55 which was accidentally recently updated to 4.3
Can I use this guide to re-softmod my system?
Very Nice. I just found this in a link in Krank's sig. Very thorough and simple to follow. I Love the fact it works on any Wii. No more downgrading ios15, patching ,then restoring. It appears a few steps that many new users find frustrating or impossible are no longer needed. Now I just need another friend's Wii to experiment with. Muhahahaha
