    IOS53 giving error..

    Anyone know how to handle an error when installing IOS53?

    "Navigate to IOS53, press A to install and say yes for Sig Hash Check (Trucha Bug)."

    This is giving me an error and won't let me continue onto loading IOS55.

    Could use some help.

    Thanks,

    ~ISSUE RESOLVED~ See Below for details

    Like so many others, I get multiple errors when it comes to Step 2b; of which include:

    tcp_read timeout
    tcp_connect timeout
    fail to initialize network
    etc, etc

    It seems to error at different parts, but error nonetheless.

    Specs:

    4.2U Wii, purchased the x-mas of release.
    1 gb Kodak High Performance SD, or 1 gb Nintendo Power Saves SD, or 512 mb PNY Technologies SD
    All SDs were formatted (not quick), to Fat32 with Default Allocation sizes
    Wireless Connection (Tested) - 24connect is disabled

    The Story:

    I've successfully hacked two other Wiis usually this guide, word for word. All Wii were identical in specs, early purchases, updated to 4.2U. What separated the Wii were solely the SD cards.

    1st Wii - It was my own personal Wii, using the 1 gb Kodak. 2+ hrs of Step 2b, no success. I gave up on it.

    2nd Wii - On the Nintendo Power Saves SD, on my boyfriend's Wii. Step 2b, NO ERRORS whatsoever, success first try. This was within 10 mins after I gave up on my first wii. Successful hack within 20 min. *thumbs up*

    2nd Attempt on 1st Wii - So, after the second wii hacking perfectly, I figured the connection was fixed. I wired up my wii, the Kodak SD in place, Step 2b, still erred. I just kept trying over and over for about another hour, and with no changes to the network or router, randomly Step 2b succeeded. Successful hack within 15 min.

    3rd Wii - This is my roommate's wii, using an old 512 mb PNY Tech. SD card.
    Errors on Step 2b. each time, varies in errors. The furthest it has made it was to the Loading Contents of IOS36 v3351. I have tried over the past week at different times of day, etc etc... Hack in progress...

    Now I've returned to here, hopefully to solve this issue that plagues what seems to be quite a few of us, with no answers to be found in search or Google.

    In addition to all the connection solution attempts, I have also tried figure out how to install via SD (Downloaded w/ NUS Downloader). No success; I thought the files needed to be in the root folder for Dop-IOS to find it. Well, with that, I get the error that the files IOS36-64-v3351.wad and IOS36-64-v3351.wad.out.wad and not be OPENED.

    Soooo, as soon as I can try again, I will be trying to load from USB, one of the working USB external hdds. Here's the alternative placement I'm going to use:

    Wish me luck!! >.>

    ~Solution~

    Kurto2021's post on page 93 is what lead me to an error-less install.


    IOS15-64-v257.wad
    IOS15-64-v523.wad
    IOS36-64-v3351.wad
    IOS37-64-v3869.wad

    /www/d/wads/

    I went here and downloaded those 4 files...then installed using Trucha bug installer 1.1 that is located in the zip file on page 1...instead of using download from NUS I used SD card.....

    I redid the IOS15 downgrade...then patched 36....then restored 15 and I was good
    To clarify:

    I downloaded those four files, placed them in the root of the SD, and loaded up Trucha Bug Restorer (Files provided by thread author, post #1) instead of DOP-IOS. I proceeded to use Trucha Bug Restorer to complete steps 2a and 2b AND 2c. I loaded all wads from SD, success. I continued on with the guide as normal. Successful hack #3.

    Try moving the IOS36-64-v3351.wad to the root of the SD card. Also grab these just in case:

    IOS15-64-v257.wad
    IOS15-64-v523.wad
    IOS36-64-v3351.wad
    IOS37-64-v3869.wad

    You can get the files from here:

    WII MOD 4.2 Step 5 does not work what is the workaround

    I was able to successfully follow everything but it looks like on step 5 I get stuck where it does install something but it gives error and then reverts back to the homebrew channel screen.

    Can someone help me how I can go back and repeat this step or not or do I have to do it again. On the screen gets frozen when you load eith IOS36 or 249

    Please help me how to get out from this situation. I am pretty sure the steps before 5 were all successful.




    Step 5 - Install and Patch A Few More IOS

    a) Load up homebrew, then load up DOP-IOS MOD. Load IOS36 or IOS249, browse for the IOS, Navigate to IOS53, press A to install and say yes for Sig Hash Check (Trucha Bug). Do the same for IOS55. Next press home to return to homebrew channel.

    b) Load up homebrew channel once more, then load up WAD Manager. Load IOS249, navigate to the wad folder, highlight IOS60patched.wad and press A. Make sure action is set to install and Install the wad. After a successful install, Press Home to go back to homebrew channel. Do the same for IOS70patched.wad. Make Sure the action is Set to INSTALL!




    (Optional) Step 6 - Hermes' IOS222 and IOS223

    a) Load Homebrew Channel and then WAD Manager
    b) Use default settings (IOS249 and SD Card), browse into the wad folder. Highlight cIOS202[38+60].wad and press A. Set the action to install and install it. Do the same for cIOS222[38].wad and cIOS223[38+37].wad




    Step 7 - Installing Priiloader (Brick Protection and System Hacks)

    a) Before continuing, you'll need the hacks.ini file for your region, go here and copy and paste the codes in the box for your 4.2 region into notepad and save it as "hacks.ini". Move the hacks.ini file onto the root.

    b) Load Homebrew Channel and run Priiloader v0.3 or v0.2 installer.

    c) Press + on the wiimote to install.

    d) Your wii should reboot into Priiloader after the installation. Go to System Menu Hacks and enable 'Skip Disc update Checking' and any other hacks you would like, select 'Save Settings' when finish. Press B on the wiimote to go back to the main menu, next go to Settings and use the d-pad to set Autoboot: System Menu. Then select Save Settings. Press B to go back to the main menu. If you get any problems, look here

    e) In the main menu, select homebrew channel to load the homebrew channel and proceed with Step 7.

    This is for people stuck on 4.2 with no cIOS. Make sure your sd card is formatted to FAT32 or FAT16 and download this pack, Unzip the pack and place the files and folders onto the root of your sd card. Your sd card should like this:


    I have tried this part and i couldnt download it because is says that it is password protected. Any help?

    I am stuck on Step 2. After I press Downgrade to IOS15, I don't know what to do. Am I supposed to wait for a really long time? Am I supposed to press "Load from SD card"? If I am, when I do that, I get an error saying the file could not be loaded from the SD card. I browsed the contents of the SofMod For 4.2 SD.rar archive, and I can't even find that file in there.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Step 8 - Backup Launchers

    a) Load WAD Manager from Homebrew Channel, navigate into the wad folder and highlight either USB_Loader_GX_r815.wad or Neogamma_r8b7.wad. Neogamma for Disc loading and USB Loader for USB HDD loading.


    ok so on step 8, when you load the WAD manager you have to choose an IOS to load, IOS249 was used last time WAD manager was used, do you do the same here?

    PASSWORD FOR ALL PACKS IS Wiihacks - Wii Hacking Discussion

    If you're not on 4.2, Do NOT Update, instead use this tutorial

    This is for people stuck on 4.2 with no cIOS. Make sure your sd card is formatted to FAT32 or FAT16 and download this pack, Unzip the pack and place the files and folders onto the root of your sd card. Your sd card should like this:
    X:\apps\
    X:\00000001
    X:\wad
    X:\private\
    X:\boot.elf
    X:\IOS38-64-v3610.wad


    TAKE OUT ALL GAMECUBE MEMORY CARDS AND CONTROLLERS BEFORE PROCEEDING




    Step 1 - Installing Homebrew Channel and Bootmii

    a. On your wii's main menu, click the SD Menu icon. Afterwards, insert the SD Card into the Wii. A Pop up saying Load boot.dol/elf? should appear. Select Yes.

    b. The Hackmii Installer should now run. Make sure to install Homebrew Channel and Bootmii as an IOS and/or boot2. Always install it as boot2 if your wii can.




    Step 2 - Restoring The Bug Into IOS36

    a) Load and Homebrew Channel and run DOP-IOS MOD, on the IOS Selection Screen, press down on the d-pad then A on the wiimote. You should now be in the trucha bug restorer portion of DOP-IOS MOD. Load IOS36 and select Downgrade IOS15. Each time it asks, select 'Download From NUS'
    Make sure you get no errors. If Loading IOS36 doesn't work for this step, press B for no IOS reload when asked to load IOS.

    Then Press A on Install Patched IOS36. Again, everytime it asks, choose 'Download from NUS'


    c) Re-run DOP-IOS MOD one more time, on the IOS Selection screen, press down on the d-pad and then A on the wiimote. Press B for 'No IOS Reload' and select Restore IOS15. Each time it asks, select 'Download from NUS'

    Once done, return to homebrew channel and continue the tutorial




    Step 3 - Delete The Stubbed IOS

    a)Re-run Homebrew Channel and Load Any Title Deleter DB. If you get any errors just press A. Then select System Titles and press A. Then, select IOS222 and press A to delete. Do the same for IOS223, IOS249 and IOS250.




    Step 4 - Installing cIOS249-rev14

    3) Re-run Homebrew Channel and load cIOS38-rev14 Installer. Choose IOS36 and press A and then choose Network Install (requires wi-fi) or Wad Install and press A.

    cIOS38 (IOS249) Installed.

Make Sure the action is Set to INSTALL!




    (Optional) Step 6 - Hermes' IOS222 and IOS223

    a) Load Homebrew Channel and then WAD Manager
    b) Use default settings (IOS249 and SD Card), browse into the wad folder. Highlight cIOS202[38+60].wad and press A. Set the action to install and install it. Do the same for cIOS222[38].wad and cIOS223[38+37].wad




    Step 7 - Installing Priiloader (Brick Protection and System Hacks)

    a) Before continuing, you'll need the hacks.ini file for your region, go here and copy and paste the codes in the box for your 4.2 region into notepad and save it as "hacks.ini". Move the hacks.ini file onto the root.

    b) Load Homebrew Channel and run Priiloader v0.3 or v0.2 installer.

    c) Press + on the wiimote to install.

    d) Your wii should reboot into Priiloader after the installation. Go to System Menu Hacks and enable 'Skip Disc update Checking' and any other hacks you would like, select 'Save Settings' when finish. Press B on the wiimote to go back to the main menu, next go to Settings and use the d-pad to set Autoboot: System Menu. Then select Save Settings. Press B to go back to the main menu. If you get any problems, look here

    e) In the main menu, select homebrew channel to load the homebrew channel and proceed with Step 7.




    Step 8 - Backup Launchers

    a) Load WAD Manager from Homebrew Channel, navigate into the wad folder and highlight either USB_Loader_GX_r815.wad or Neogamma_r8b7.wad. Neogamma for Disc loading and USB Loader for USB HDD loading.


    b) Press A on the wiimote and set action to Install WAD. Give it time to install with no errors.


    c) Press Home on the wiimote to exit. You are all ready to enjoy your wii.




    EXTRA STUFF

    Prepare you USB HDD to load through USB Loader GX - here

    Install cIOS56 to play Guitar Hero 5/Beatles from the disc channel - Download

    Install the new cIOScorp 3.6 for DVDR loading through Disc Channel - (works on all wiis) - Download - make sure you read the readme!

    Install the Internet Channel - NTSC-U, PAL or NTSC-J

    Use your Wii as a media player with MPlayer CE & DVDX

    Get some emulators for all your old favourites (better than vc except for N64)


    DVD-R

    You need to use either Verbatim DVD-R or Ritek G05 DVD-R for your games, most other discs won't work. Have a look at our disc section for more info.

    Also note, if your console came with 4.2, there's a chance you'll have a D3-2 Drive which will not load DVDR Backups.
