    Nothing would happen, other then installing v5 and overwriting v5.1. cIOS is not like priiloader.....you can't brick your wii installing, deleting, or doing anything to cIOS.

    Leave your IOS alone though (they are much more important).

    Edit:

    cIOS = IOS over 200
    IOS = IOS under 200

    Not planning on doing anything right now...
    Just thinking about the next time I have to go through the soft mod again(starting from chapter 2).

    FYI:
    I hacked my Wii using the guide from a few versions back, all was working fine.
    Then recently my games stopped loading and I was getting a black screen. Games I had just played the night before would not load,
    so I hacked my Wii again starting from chapter 2, which had been updated from the one I initially used to hack my Wii and my
    games are now loading again. So I just wanted to make sure that if I had to go through the guide again starting from
    chapter 2, it would be ok.

    Priiloader has been updated to v0.6, but it has been configured to install via cios36
    The wad install has been broken up into 3 distinct part, to allow the user to better track errors if any, and avoid any unfortunate incident from such errors. This takes more button pushing, but I think is better for safety.

    Many may wonder why I pulled the guide today. Well it is simple, I updated the guide two days ago, it had over 5000 downloads in that two days. In two days 3 out of 5000 reported issue, and this bothers me. So I closed the guide for the day, retested and rethought the whole thing, remade all the packs and tested them. Now their up.

    Nice! Subtle changes to what the guide actually installs, but a significant change to the directions! This new revision should make the guide easier to follow, even more so then the first! A lot of whats here now should reduce the amount of noobish questions. Great job guy. I appreciate the time an effort you put forth doing this stuff. I recommend this guide and your "ANY wiii" guide to pretty much everyone! Thanks again!!

    You can simply redo chapter 2, DONT uninstall anything.. the new pack should just install over the old ones.. or you can just update your IOSes if you completed Ch.2 from the original guide. there are not huge changes in what the guide installs so it's up to you. IMO I would just do Chapter 2 over to be safe though. but Im kind of anal..

    If you followed this guide everything is up to date.. I use CFG v60 and I no issues at all with ANY of the new games. but if you needed to you would just need to update your IOSes but if you want a newer version of the loader its up to you.. just preference.

    Darkcorp is NOT needed.. It is also NOT for those who arent tech savvy.. Most here will not recommend it. Use darkcorp/cIOScorp at your own risk!

    having trouble verifying the sums. getting an error each time depending on if you overwrite or not.

    if you extract the modpack first and dont overwrite the wads folder, it works, but the cios pack md5 fails with 11 errors.

    if you overwrite the modpacks wads folder with the one in the cios pack folder, the modpack md5 fails with 16 errors.

    have tried this 10 times reformatting the SD card each time and still the same 2 results.

    What kind of card is it? is it a SD not SDHC.. Do a FULL format not a quick format and see how it goes.

    pny micro 2gb card. the card has worked fine up till this point, i used the smash stack exploit.

    should I just move the contents of one wad folder into the other one, instead of overwriting it? it seems they both have different contents....

    If your formatting it correctly you shouldnt have to overwrite anything... your SD should be wiped clean... and everything you download should be extracted to the ROOT of your SD card..
