How to get Rock Band instruments Mic and USB Loader!
Just stumbled on this information today and it was new to me so I thought I would share it with the rest of you.
I'm assuming all of you following this already have homebrew if not find a tutorial to get homebrew installed.
First acquire the files:
ULoader and Hermes 223 IOS Files
I prefer USB Loader GX or use the Hermes one packaged above.
Then Unzip the CIOSInstaller folder from Hermes to the apps folder of the Wii SD Card.
Select the cios installer from Homebrew channel and install 222 I selected ios 37 with ios 36
Rerun the install and install 223 here I also selected 37 with 36
(Im pretty sure when you do 223 you have to select 37 with 36 to get RB instruments not sure about the 222 install but, so far it seems to work)
And also install whichever USB loader you desire to use.
If you choose USB Loader GX you must tell it to use 222 in the set up menu.
Those are the only USB loaders at this time that support these CIOSes (I think).
Then it worked for me... If you have any questions, I will try to answer them.
I found a sweet loader over at gbatemp called Configurable USB Loader. This one may even have more booting options than GX.
Does this work with Wanikoko USB loader 1.5? I've tried some other CIOS and they all seem to kill my loader. If it does work, what IOS does it need to be installed? Well I just tried it and a big NOGO. Still the same, no player assigned to the guitar. Bummer. It however did not kill usb loader. Can anyone tell me if USB Loader uses IOS222 or IOS249? I just tried 38 over 36 also and the same.

Like I said before the only loader I have know to work with the Hermes CIOSes was the Hermes one and USB Loader GX. I don't think Waninkoko's loader will work with Hermes CIOSes.
cIOS 222 works just dandy fine installing it the default/recommended way on 36. I use that as default in USB Loader GX

The hermes loader is called uloader - it's also the only loader that will read multiple WBFS partitions.

223 is needed with 37 merged with 36 in order to get the RB stuff working though.
The rockband mic will work on 222 fine. In fact if you're just using the rockband mic it will work on USB Loader GX with cIOS38 rev12 and up, as well. I've tested both configs.
Are you all doing this on U.S wiis? reason i ask is usb loaders etc all works fine on my uk/pal wii but no matter what i try i cant get the instruments working on rb1, or any usb device for that matter, meaning i cant use a mic on any gh or rb games
using this method i can get the rb hub flashing, meaning its working, but the game just gives me a blank screen? the game works fine on cios249 but no instruments. argh!
I was providing instructions on how to get the Rockband Instruments working. You still need 223 for the RB instruments to get recognized as a controller/player.

I use USB Loader GX and change the config settings in that to use 222 (If you dont make this change you do only get a black screen)
