    Each IOS has a specific codeset which runs when that IOS is called on. These custom IOS installers run additional code to patch those original IOS, in effect adding functionality and allowing us to run our backup loaders, etc. The merge being referred to in your first question is a process which combines both the code from IOS 37, 38, and additional "custom" implemented by Hermes to create a hybrid IOS, which we call the custom IOS. It is then installed to the 222/223 slot depending on your choices during the installation.

    There's more to it though, which is why I've included the link below.

    @ Ithian: thanks for your fast answer, however could you tell me, if i'm following either hermes v4 installation guide or messie installation guide ? which ones the best recognize to work ? like i said there's differences in the BASE IOS they uses. But my main question was, if i'm downloader the hermes v4 installer, run it in HBC, install using IOS240 as said in the guides and then choose IOS202, 222, 223 to install with BASE, does the install will ask me WHICH BASE to use ? does the INTERNET WIFI install will choose it for me ? whats what i want to know before actually trying to RUN the install if you don't mind telling me.

    Thanks,
    Neoteg.

    Firstly there isn't a guide on this site that instructs to install anything into slot 240. Maybe you mean 249. If that's the case, those are two entirely different installers. 202/222/223 is hermes (v5 includes 224) and 249/250 is waninkoko.

    I can't tell you what base to use because everyone has different needs, and each base enables separate functions. As an aside, your other questions are all already answered in the original post, so I don't feel obliged to repeat that information. As it was mentioned to you before, follow the guides and you'll be fine.

    Fwiw, when I first started doing this I had no clue what I was doing beforehand (who would), but by jumping into the thick of it I learned more and more about how homebrew works. And I still feel that's the best way to get to know this stuff, but it's not for everybody.

    @Ithian: Thanks for the answer, yes sorry typo error, was meaning 249, in the first page guide for hermesv4 it still says the following, the one in bold was the 249 i was talking about in my previous post:
    4. Start HomeBrew Channel and start the cIOS 222 Installer
    5. Read the warning message and push A
    6. Select IOS249 to perform the install with D-pad left/right and push A
    7. Select to Install Custom IOS 222 and select IOS37 merged with IOS38
    8. Wait for download and installation to complete

    9. Start HomeBrew Channel and start the cIOS 222 Installer again
    10. This time select Custom IOS 223 and select IOS60 merged with IOS38

    This having been said, i just wanted to know, when i'll actually start the install with wifi connected, that when i'll do step 7. and 8. (in red above) it will literally suggest me some base to choose from ? and then after i'll have to tell him, download from internet to install ? sorry if i was not clear but thanks for your answers.

    Thanks, Neoteg

    Yes, it will give you the option to select from.

    @Ithian: Thanks a lot for you effort telling me. I'm new to this also, just followed ShadowSonic2 softmod v4.2 guide this weekend, performed all steps, downloader 2 iso's game, burned them on DVD-R Verbatim (i always use these anyways) and all is working fine. Now i wanted to take the step ahead installing hermes and trying GH or Rockband full band games and see if that works also with my modded Wii. I've read the cIOS guide you given me earlier this weekend, as well as the FAQ at beginning of "messie" tutorial 4.2 also, i've read the other guide from "gen3sf" about external HDD loading, ripping and stuff like that (will do that sometimes this week instead of burning disc all the time). Ive read hermes v4 and v5 guides to install these as well. I have a big general understanding of all this and i thank you again for your fast answers ! it's greatly appreciated, i'm gonna go donate soon this afternoon (my timeframe).

    I know it's not from this forum thread and anything related, i was just wondering i installed bootmii as boot2 and backed up my NAND correctly and backup up on my PC, after the guide saying to delete from SD card the bootmii and NAND sys file (as long as its backed up on my PC) either Bootmii would have booted everytime i powerON my wii. When we say bootmii installed as boot2 is the best to recover from eventual "brick", i guess when they specifically say to keep a backup of these folder/files on my PC and delete them from SD card, i guess bootmii is still "installed" as boot2 ? if the worst happens and i got "brick" i could just like they say reput back the bootmii folder and NAND file on my SD card and reboot as that ? like i said i'm installing a lot of OS PC system in my life...just wanted to understand more about this. Thanks again !

    I'm glad you were able to get things sorted and we certainly appreciate any donations to keep us going. In reference to Bootmii/boot2: That is correct. Just replace the bootmii folder and NAND backup on your card, bootmii will load when you power on, then you can restore your backup.

    @Ithian: Just donate $20 now as i promess. Allright, but as i said, i completely deleted the BootMii folder AND NAND.BIN from the SD card i use now. But as you just said, just to make it clear, it's still "installed" somewhere on the Wii ? or theres nothing at all installed and all in the backup folder / file i kept on my PC ?
