    Definitely install Priiloader before doing this and make sure it works. The most important section you'll need to worry about on 4.0 is installing IOS60 in [3c]. That is your System IOS. Make sure it installs without issue.

    - "Some of these will ask to apply certain patches (Trucha/ES_Id/NAND) after step C. Press A if you want to apply them, B if you don't." I am not sure if I should apply certain patches. Could you advice what patches needed or not needed for specific IOS?
    - Yes, install them as the MIOS is for GC games to function and the rest are called on by some game or another to run
    - Yes
    - The patches in that section are optional. With or without will work fine, which is why I leave it up to you.

    - With a region-changed Korean console you need to skip installing IOS70 in section [3c]. In fact I'm going to re-word part of the guide in a second reflecting this. If you were to install IOS70-64-v6687 and update your console to 4.2 it would brick 003. To avoid this from ever happening, skip IOS70 in [3c]. Then do [3d], [4], and finish with [5].

    - Like I mentioned, your console is reigion-changed from NTSC-K. Proceed.

    - IOS61 v4890
    Any actions need to be done for these 4 IOS?
    - IOS249 v15: Update to cIOS38Rev17. r15 had issues.
    - 222/223: Uninstall these revisions using DOP-Mii and reinstall using Hermes installer. Revision should read no higher than v5.
    - IOS61: This is an older revision. Update to v5405.

    Ithian, awesome! I hope you can forgive me in advance if my questions never end, or when I ask dumb questions like NTSC-K, which I now understand.

    For Priiloader installation, I would need to install a patched IOS60 (http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...preloader.html). I'm worried about doing this. Is this ok, with the versions of IOS that I'm currently having? Any possibility of bricking my Wii from Priiloader installation? I have just got Wad Manager 1.5 Mod3 HBC Version (http://www.wiihacks.com/homebrew/200...d-manager.html), and will be using this to install all WADs.

    Also, after I install IOS60 in [3c], would I also need to re-install Priiloader since it overwrites the patched IOS60 from Priiloader installation, or this is fixed by installing IOS70v54321(IOS60-patched).wad from [4]?

    After [4], I'll proceed to update the 4 additional IOS I mentioned (IOS249 v15, IOS223 v65535, IOS222 v65535, and IOS61 v4890) as below, or can i proceed to update them before I start with your cIOSCORP uninstall guide? Is there also any particular order of IOS to install or they are not dependent?

    For cIOS38Rev17, I'll be using Complete Package (http://www.wiihacks.com/member-submi...-released.html).

    For 222/223, I'll be using (http://www.wiihacks.com/wii-custom-s...-released.html). The steps mentioned are:
    1. Start HomeBrew Channel and start the cIOS 222 Installer
    2. Read the warning message and push A
    3. Select IOS249 to perform the install with D-pad left/right and push A
    4. Select to Install Custom IOS 222 and select IOS38 merged with IOS37
    5. Wait for download and installation to complete
    6. Start HomeBrew Channel and start the cIOS 222 Installer again
    7. Select IOS249 to perform the install again
    8. This time select Custom IOS 223 and select IOS38 merged with IOS60
    9. Finally, use IOS249 to perform install again.
    10. Select Custom IOS 224 and use IOS57 as base.
    *IOS223 gives you an alternative option for merged IOS in this way. It is exactly the same as IOS222 otherwise.
    *Experiment with other merges or not merging at all if neither of the options provided here work for you
    Do i proceed with step 1-10 or just 1-8?

    For IOS61 v5405 (http://www.wiihacks.com/homebrew-dow...installer.html). Ok to use this? Need to get going real soon now so guess i'll try to search for more links later.

    I tried CB2_BB_SysCheck_1.6.1.zip [5], copying all to my SD card, but i don't see the app appearing on my HBC. Any idea why is that? I also tried just copying the SysCheck 1.6.1 folder into apps folder of my SD card, and it still didn't work.

    Edit: Got SysCheck 1.6.1 (Download sysCheck161.rar, upload your files and earn money.) and works. Report generated:

    Since cIOSCORP is already on your system you currently have a patched IOS60, so you're fine to install Priiloader regardless. I've never used WM1.5 mod3 but if dogeggs recommends it should work fine. My personal favorite is YAWMM.

    No and no. Priiloader will remain intact when you overwrite the cIOSCORP IOS60. This is why I have you install Priiloader as opposed to Preloader. The older versions will corrupt during this process. As for IOS70v54321, your system will never call on that IOS unless you update to 4.2. Installing it is just a safeguard to make sure you never brick 003.

    All of them are independent of one another. If it were me, I'd probably run the installs of 249 & 222/223 beforehand mostly because I don't trust 249 r15. Then update IOS61 while running the rest of the guide.

    That's your call. IOS224 is a new option provided by Hermes v5. It's safe to use and I think a few loaders have implemented it by now -- I know it's on the way in Wiiflow.

    You can if you want, or you can just update it using DOP-Mii while you're using the guide here.

    Yeah that file doesn't have the boot.dol in the \apps\syscheck folder. It's a bannerbomb enabled version that boots when you turn on the console. I think I'll make one little change to it in a second to avoid that confusion in the future.

    Mekee, without a doubt this guide is an awesome help.

    Ithian, I have read your "My experience with cIOSCORP" blog, and if there is anyone I am comfortable following guide from regarding cIOSCORP, you'll be top of my list.

    I like to summarize and list things before I take actions, so here's my finalized steps:

    01.Step 2b:
    - Install Priiloader without applying patched IOS60
    - perform test to load into Priiloader and successfully run Homebrew Channel (HBC)
    02.Update IOS249 v15:
    - using cIOS38Rev17, using Complete Package (http://www.wiihacks.com/member-submi...-released.html)
    03.Update IOS 222/223:
    - using (http://www.wiihacks.com/wii-custom-s...-released.html)
    - Steps 1-8:
    1. Start HomeBrew Channel and start the cIOS 222 Installer
    2. Read the warning message and push A
    3. Select IOS249 to perform the install with D-pad left/right and push A
    4. Select to Install Custom IOS 222 and select IOS38 merged with IOS37
    5. Wait for download and installation to complete
    6. Start HomeBrew Channel and start the cIOS 222 Installer again
    7. Select IOS249 to perform the install again
    8. This time select Custom IOS 223 and select IOS38 merged with IOS60
    04.Step 3a:
    - Install the mentioned IOS without applying any patches (Trucha/ES_Id/NAND)
    05.Step 3b
    06.Step 3c:
    - Install IOS30, 50, and 60
    07.Step 3d
    08.Install IOS61 v5405 using DOP-Mii
    09.Step 4
    10.Step 5

    All your steps look good - For IOS222/223 if you run into any unexpected errors try uninstalling them first using DOP-Mii, then run the Hermes installer again. Same with 249.

    Hi Ithian,
    01 and 02 completed.

    03:
    - using DOP-Mii (IOS249 selected) uninstalled 222, followed by 223
    - still within DOP-Mii, ran SysCheck and no 222 and 223 found
    - exit DOP-Mii and run Hermes CIOS v5 installer
    - installed 222 (IOS Base - IOS38) followed by 223 (IOS Base - IOS60)
    - exit Hermes CIOS installer and run SysCheck 1.6.1
    - report still shows:
    IOS222 (rev 65535),No,Enabled,Enabled,Disabled,Enabled,Disable d,Enabled
    IOS223 (rev 65535),No,Enabled,Disabled,Disabled,Enabled,Disabl ed,Enabled

    Checked USB Loader and it is working. Am I missing something?

    Edit: Just thought I'd post to let you know I'm not expecting an immediate answer. Will try to check up some forums as well to get some clue.

    That's fine. I haven't used Hermes v5 yet, still on v4, and missed that it now installs all versions to 65535. You're okay to continue.
