Noob needs help!
Hey guys, brand new to the forum. I have a wii, version 4.2, I have successfully gotten the homebrew channel installed. But, I am having issues installing the cIOS. I have everything loaded on my SD card the way the tuts say, but whenever I get into the installer, my wii remote stops working. The isntaller says to press a to continue, but my "a" doesn't work since the remote ins't responging. Has anyone faced this? or Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
PS. I apologize if this has already been answered. I searched, found no one with my same problem. Please, if it has been answered, just point me to the thread please.
were you able to remove the stub ios249 in the previous step? also there are a few packs of files to try and if they don't work there is a link on that tutorial to the tutorial to get a cios on a system

Ok, so N did this update and thos ppl knew that we use ios249 to isntall our cios and place our backups. What did they do? they invented an empty ios ("stub") and place it in slot 249, to stop us. Like they will! Muhahahaha. Here is what we do about it. We will uninstall ios249 stub, and then isntall our own cios38rev14 in slot 249:
B1) GET THIS PACK(Thanks to Dogeggs, he sure made the trick... this will probably work for anyone) or GET THIS PACK 2 or GET THIS PACK 3 (pick start with the first one, if you get an error pick the next one and follow instructions from B2 and on again. One of this will do the trick without an error. If still nothing, try this)
B2)Format the SD card, with FAT32, place the contents of the included folder in the SD card root. Only files in SD root should be:
root:\00000001\ <-(if available)
B3)Place the SD card in the wii, start HBC and press home ar the main HBC screen. (If your wii boots to Bootmii, just go to B5)
B4)Select bootmii and wait.
B5)Wadmanager should start.(On ios select, select ios36, or try a few, 249, 250 dunno,we are scratching our heads with this)!!
B6)Select SD card and press A to continue.
B7)Select ios249 from wad folder and press A
B8)change the action to "uninstall wad", press A
B9)Done!! now to the next step!!
you were able to do this with success?
