Bootmii + cIOS249r14
I'm just getting round to upgrading my wii from 3.2e to 4.1e
Problem is I'm a noob and have just hit a wall :-(
As per the very helpful Tealc's guide 'How to upgrade to 4.1 with homebrew still working'
I need to find, 'cIOS249r14' as the link on the guide doesnt work. Can anyone tell me where to find it?
Also, when I find this file how would I go about installing it? via Wad??
I am trying to create a backup via Bootmii before I do the upgrade. I have Homebrew 1.0.3 installed with IOS36 v4.18.
Now, when I Launch BootMii via the Homebrew Channel menu, the screen stays black and the wii disc drive flashes. Caould anyone tell me whats wrong and how I could fix this to back up my wii??

1. cIOS38-rev14 Installer is also available under my signature. Download it and unzip it. Place the cIOS38-r14 folder that contains the boot.dol file into your apps folder on the root of your sd card. The IOS38 wad that comes with it should go on your root also. Next run homebrew channel and load the app, cIOS38-rev14 Installer. Select IOS36 as the one it should use and select either WAD or Network Installation. WAD is for offline install and network is for online.
2. Using bootmii installed as an IOS to save you if you were to brick wouldn't work. Bootmii/IOS cannot save you from a full brick. Not much point bothering making a backup. For semi and bannerbricks, Priiloader can do that.
Thanks for the quick response.
So you think I can use cIOS38 instead of cIOS249 ?
Would that be fine with the guide, 'How to upgrade to 4.1 with homebrew still working'?
Don;t want to casue any conflicts.
Hmmm,where can I get priloader from and do i install it via wadmanager?

1. cIOS38-r14 Installer installs IOS249. You just say cIOS249-r14. Its the samething, The installer takes IOS38, patches it then writes it as IOS249
2. It wouldn't cause any conflicts.
3. Priiloader is available under my signature. Download and unzip it. Place the folder that contains the boot.dol file into the apps folder so it looks like this:
Same goes for cIOS38-r14
SD Card:/apps/cIOS38-r14 Installer/boot.dol
each app comes with its own boot.dol
WAD Manager is only for installing wads ( Wii Setup Files) not for using apps.
I hope I answered all of your questions
you have, thanks a lot sir.
hop[efully i'll get back to you and let you know alls fine :-)
