err, i'm a lot noob boddy, but when i follow the step "11" from your tutorial, it's said to choose IOS 38, but i have only those IOses : 37 , 57 , 60.
It's a wii 4.2u LU73 based, softmoded using messie's tutorial.
wich of those IOses i choose?
I have one question: if the system menu is 4.2E, when I install cIOS202, I have to choose IOS60 as base (although is stub, according SysCheck) or IOS70 (used instead of IOS60 for system menu 4.1 or earlier)??
Thank you for your tutorial and supplied cIOS pack. Worked a treat! As for feedback on MplayerCE i am running v0.76 and the USB loading and navigating went from about 2 second respond time for navigating to instant, and movie loading went from about 1 minute to 5 seconds tops! This has drastically improved my USB experience with my Wii.
Just thought I would weigh in. I just sorted out a nightmare with WiiXplorer and IOS202. WiiXplorer requires IOS202 so you must have it installed which I did. However several of the apps functions did not work. With the help of the developer we determined the problem was with IOS202 base 60. I had to install IOS202 with base 38 in order to fix the problem. So if you use WiiXplorer, you must install IOS202 with base 38 or 37. Base 57 and 60 cause problems. So here is my V5 install...
IOS202 base 38
IOS222 base 38
IOS223 base 37
IOS224 base 57
Keep in mind a base of IOS60 was introduced because it offered better wifi connectivity, when used with Mplayer CE. This may also hold true for the new tantric emulators (Snes9x GX 4.1.8, FCE Ultra GX 3.1.6, Visual Boy Advance GX 2.1.5) when playing the emulated roms from a computer, because the emulators have dropped DVDX support in favor of IOS202. Installing IOS202 with a base of 38 could have adverse affects on other apps.
Maybe you could post back here if you have problems with any other apps that use IOS202, or just let us know if the other apps run fine with IOS202 with a base of 38.
I just found this at the WiiXplorer website
Have you tried Hermes v4 installer for IOS202 it will install IOS38 merged with IOS60. So, you will have IOS38 and IOS60 support. I was under the assumption that IOS38 was a given in Hermes v5 and the installer just adds the other IOS's.NOTE:
FTP Server doesn't work for Ethernet-Adapters (maybe for some Wifis too) if you install IOS202 v5 based on IOS57. Also there is no Channel list in the StartMenu with that.
It is recommended to use the very old Hermes IOS202v2 base 36 merged 60 for the FTP to work.
You'll have all features of WiiXplorer with it. If this doesn't work try another variant of it like v4 base 38 merged 60. If you don't want the old version installed on your Wii (which gives no disadvantages btw) live with FTP Server not working!!

Thanks for your reply. The problem with WiiXplorer is with the list channels and FTP functions. Using base 60 or 57 breaks these functions. Base 37 and 38 work fine. I have tried v4 38+60 but that also breaks these functions. In regard to the note you found, I do not agree with the statement that using an old version of 202 has no disadvantages. Maybe there are no disadvantages for WiiXplorer but certainly not for other apps. Hermes and Waninkoko are constantly refining these custom IOS and the apps are taking advantage of the improvements. By the way you can find my discussions with dimok the developer or WiiXplorer here. My part in the discussion starts at comment 85.
Issue 86 - wiixplorer - FTP support? - Project Hosting on Google Code
I am puzzled as to why Hermes recommends base 38 for 202 when he knows that apps like Mplayer CE can take advantage or base 60. You and others recommend base 60 which makes sense. Then there are folks that recommend base 57 because of the improved USB support that it has. So who is right about this? I guess it depends on what apps you are running. With Mplayer CE if you are mostly doing online streaming then base 60 should be best. If you are streaming from your USB drive then base 57 should be best. What do you think?
I am currently using Ftpii for accessing the Wii. The app is solid and does a good job but one thing worries me. Ftpii allow you to access the root system folders. I am not sure if read only permissions are set on these folders when accessed via FTP. Do you no? I am afraid to try and delete something to find out. I will be setting up systems for other folks and I am afraid that if they might make a mistake and delete something in the system folders, the Wii will become a brick. I thought I would setup others with WiiXplorer's FTP server as it does not allow access to the root. Now I am not sure what I will do.
Dimok claims that he can not fix the problems that occur when using the newer cios's. I am not sure if he can't or just won't. I was surprised to here that he is running Hermes v2. All of the other apps seem to adapt for the new cios's, I wish he would as well.
I want to thank you for your support and knowledge. I am a newbie but I have an extensive computer background and I am catching on quick. In fact this is the first Wii that I have worked on and only for about a month now. I bought it for my girlfriend but I have yet to give it to her. I hope to hand it over real soon. Anyway thanks again and I look forward to your reply...
