    Thumbs up ULTIMATE System Menu Guide -edited june 17/09

    This is the ULTIMATE Tutorial for everything you need for System Menu 4.1
    for EUR and USA Wiis only not JAP or KOREAN

    There are two methods described in this guide. Online and completely Offline installations. The Online installation is the safer method. They should both work on ANY Wii besides LU64+. You only need to use one guide, they both do the same thing. Please read the entire thread including FAQ before asking a question.



    Online Downgrade/Upgrade

    Prerequisites:
    --SD card
    --Wifi Connection (Ethernet doesnt work)
    --Unplug any Gamecube Memory Cards, Gamecube Controllers, USB Devices
    --Read the FAQ and be prepared with a general knowledge of Wii Homebrew

    Online Downgrade Upgrade.zip (07-22-09)

    1) Format your SD card to FAT16. Copy the contents inside the sd folder to the root of your SD card

    2) Insert the SD card in the Wii and go to Data Management>Channels>SD Card press YES on the dialog box that asks to load boot.dol

    3) Install the Homebrew Channel and install BootMii as boot2 if possible or as an IOS if boot2 is not available.

    4) Launch Bootmii (if you installed to boot2 just reset the system if you installed to IOS go to the HBC and press the Home button)

    5) Open the config menu (gears) and choose backup NAND (green arrow) wait for it to finish and restart the Wii

    6) Run Trucha Bug Restorer and choose "IOS36" and pick "Downgrade IOS15" and "Download IOS from NUS" then restart

    7) Run Trucha Bug Restorer again and choose "IOS15" then "IOS36 menu" set "IOS to slot 36" and "yes" "yes" "yes" to the 3 options then press "Install patched IOS36" and "Download IOS from NUS"

    8) Install cIOS36 rev10 to IOS249 using Network install mode

    9) Downgrade system IOS files using IOS Downgrader

    10) Downgrade to 3.2 using cIOS Downgrader even if you are already on 3.2 run this

    11) Run 4.1 Firmware-Updater.

    12) Using Dop-IOS install IOS60 v6174 with Sig Hash Check.

    13) Install preloader. On the install screen press 1

    14) Set your preloader settings. In preloader hacks enable "Skip disc update check"


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------


    Offline Downgrade/Upgrade

    Prerequisites:
    --SD card
    --Unplug any Gamecube Memory Cards, Gamecube Controllers, USB Devices
    --Read the FAQ and be prepared with a general knowledge of Wii Homebrew

    http://www.mediafire.com/?q2iy0zgz2my (07-22-2009)

    This package contains instructions on how to acquire the necessary files from Nintendo to do an offline update
    This package will work on ANY Wii! Virgin or Nintendo Official Updated without cios!!


    1) Extract the files somewhere on your hard drive such as C:\wii\ and run prepare.bat and choose your desired version

    2) Check that the WAD files are correct with MooSFV. If any files are not correct run clean.bat and start over

    3) Format your SD card to FAT16. Copy the contents inside the sd folder to the root of your SD card

    4) Insert the SD card in the Wii and go to Data Management>Channels>SD Card press YES on the dialog box that asks to load boot.dol

    5) Install the Homebrew Channel and install BootMii as boot2 if possible or as an IOS if boot2 is not available.

    6) Launch Bootmii (if you installed to boot2 just reset the system if you installed to IOS go to the HBC and press the Home button)

    7) Open the config menu (gears) and choose backup NAND (green arrow) wait for it to finish and restart the Wii

    8) Run Trucha Bug Restorer and choose "IOS36" and pick "Downgrade IOS15" and "Load IOS from sd card" then restart

    9) Run Trucha Bug Restorer again and choose "IOS15" then "IOS36 menu" set "IOS to slot 36" and "yes" "yes" "yes" to the 3 options then press "Install patched IOS36" and "Load IOS from sd card"

    10) Run cIOS36_rev10-Installer and choose WAD Installation

    11) Run WAD-Manager_v1.4 again. Choose IOS249 and install WADs 01-18. If WAD Manager freezes during installation just try again from the WAD it froze on.

    12) While still in WAD Manager install SystemMenuv###.wad

    13) Install preloader. On the install screen press 1

    14) Set your preloader settings. In preloader hacks enable "Skip disc update check"


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------


    You can now use Backup Loaders and run Virtual Console and WiiWare from the SD Channel!

    I recommend Backup Launcher NeoGamma for Wii Backups

    NeoGamma Thread - GBAtemp.net

    If you want Gamecube backups install the custom MIOS and use Gamecube Backup Launcher 0.2

    GameCube Backup Launcher 0.2 - GBAtemp.net

    You can also now install a USB Loader. I reccomend USB Loader GX

    USB Loader GX - GBAtemp.net


    If you want to load games from the disc channel you must install CIOSCORP
    The following section applies to both Online and Offline installations.


    NOTE: NO ASKING FOR LINKS TO CIOS WADS
    This section has some risks and is OPTIONAL
    if you follow instructions you will be fine.


    1) Put WAD Manager 1.3 on your sd card

    http://www.teknoconsolas.tv/wanin/WAD-Manager_v1.3.zip

    2) Install the CIOSCORP WADs

    can be found in Softmii or MiiWii packages

    3) Install CIOS60BF.wad

    google "CIOS60HK.zip" or get "cios60.wad" from the offline guide

    4) Your system menu will now say "System Files Corrupt" but dont worry! just hold reset and launch the Homebrew Channel and install Preloader 0.29 AGAIN

    5) Enable update blocker in preloader. Hold RESET and power on. Change preloader options and hacks


    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do I fix Homebrew Channel going to a black screen?

    reinstall it with bannerbomb

    What if I cant install Bootmii? What if the NAND backup fails?

    Chances are you will be fine, its just another security measure which I have never needed to use.

    Is my console BRICKED!?

    If you have Bootmii boot2 or preloader then you are fine. Turn your Wii OFF to the RED light and then hold RESET and turn it on then load the HBC
    If you have cIOS installed run cIOS Downgrader
    If you dont have cIOS installed use the Offline Downgrade method

    Will this work with Softmii? MiiWii? old version of cIOS? etc

    Theres no need to uninstall anything first. You can install CIOSCORP on 4.0 using this guide

    Will this work with Starfall? Preloader 0.28?

    No. You MUST use Preloader 0.29. Starfall hacks wont work on 4.0. Use the latest preloader hacks.ini

    Do original discs work with/without CIOSCORP?

    Yes. CIOSCORP and CIOS60 only affect Backup Discs

    How do I fix the error when installing preloader "current IOS(36) has the fakesign bug fixed"?

    Install "IOS36-64-v1042.wad" which can be found on a disc or using the Offline Pack

    How do I fix (X)?

    Chances are you messed up directions somewhere. Start from Step 1!

    good job !

    edit: Offline Downgrade Upgrade.zip ----- Invalid File.
    remark:
    The key you provided for file download was invalid. This is usually caused because the file is no longer stored on Mediafire. This occurs when the file is removed by the originating user or Mediafire.

    There are now two methods described in this guide. Online and completely Offline installations. The Online installation is the safer method but the Offline method will work on ANY Wii that has the homebrew channel even without cIOS. Both guides require the homebrew channel to be previously installed.


    Online Downgrade/Upgrade

    Prerequisites:
    --Homebrew Channel Installed
    --SD card
    --Wifi Connection (Ethernet doesnt work)
    --cIOS installed or system menu 3.4 or lower
    --Read the FAQ and be prepared with a general knowledge of Wii Homebrew

    1) Install cIOS36 rev10 using Network install mode

    cIOS36_rev10-Installer.zip

    2) Downgrade system IOS files using IOS Downgrader

    http://www.teknoconsolas.tv/wanin/IOS-Downgrader_v1.zip

    3) Downgrade to 3.2 using cIOS Downgrader even if you are already on 3.2 run this

    http://www.teknoconsolas.tv/wanin/cI...rader_v1.2.zip

    4) Run the 4.0 Updater

    http://www.teknoconsolas.tv/wanin/Fi...pdater_4.0.zip

    6) Run the IOS60 updater
    say NO to install IOS61
    say YES to install IOS60
    say YES to patch IOS60
    say NO to install the shop channel

    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    7) It is highly recommended that you install preloader to prevent bricks. On the install screen press 1

    http://crediar.no-ip.com/preloaderv0.29-cred.rar

    You can now use Backup Loaders and run Virtual Console and WiiWare from the SD Channel!

    I recommend Backup Launcher 0.3 Gamma for Wii Backups

    No Backup loaders Allowed


    If you want Gamecube backups install the custom MIOS included and use Gamecube Backup Launcher 0.2

    GBAtemp.net :: Downloads :: Other consoles :: GC Backup Launcher 0.2


    You can also now install the USB Loader

    SDUSB-Loader_v1.3.zip



    Offline Downgrade/Upgrade

    Prerequisites:
    --Homebrew Channel Installed
    --SD card
    --Read the FAQ and be prepared with a general knowledge of Wii Homebrew

    This package contains instructions on how to acquire the necessary files from Nintendo to do an offline update
    Just run prepare.bat and follow the instructions and make sure you do not have a cioscorp folder on your sd card
    This package will work on ANY Wii! Virgin or Nintendo Official Updated without cios!!

    Offline Downgrade Upgrade.zip


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    The following section applies to both Online and Offline installations.

    NOTE: NO ASKING FOR LINKS TO CIOS WADS

    5) Enable update blocker in preloader. Hold RESET and power on. Change preloader options and hacks


    Frequently Asked Questions

    What do I do with these files?

    Extract them with WinRAR and rename the .DOL file to "boot.dol" and put them in "X:/apps/appname/boot.dol"

    Are you sure each step is required / in the right order?

    Yes Ive done this multiple times just follow the order.

    A step didnt work, can I go on?

    Again, NO. Especially do not upgrade to 4.0 without installing cIOS or you can not install it!

    Is my console BRICKED!?

    If you have preloader then you are fine. Turn your Wii OFF to the RED light and then hold RESET and turn it on then load the HBC
    If you have cIOS installed run cIOS Downgrader
    If you dont have cIOS installed use the Offline Downgrade method

    Will this work with Softmii? MiiWii? etc

    Theres no need to uninstall anything first. You can install CIOSCORP on 4.0 using this guide and it functions like Softmii or MiiWii

    Will this work with Starfall? Preloader 0.28?

    No. You MUST use Preloader 0.29. Starfall hacks wont work. Use the latest preloader hacks.ini

    Do original discs work with/without CIOSCORP?

    Yes. CIOSCORP and CIOS60 only affect Backup Discs

    How do I fix the error when installing preloader "current IOS(36) has the fakesign bug fixed"?

    Install "IOS36-64-v1042.wad" which can be found on a disc or using the Offline Pack

    How do I uninstall preloader?

    Downgrade with cIOS Downgrader and run Waninkokos Updater again

    How do I downgrade from 4.0 without cIOS?

    Use the Offline Downgrade/Upgrade pack

    How do I fix the error "You are a pirate" in CMDVDX35?

    delete the cioscorp folder from your sd card and run Shared2Clean Shared2Clean.rar

    How do I fix (X)?

    Chances are you messed up directions somewhere. Start from Step 1!
