    How to Use Waninkoko's cIOS Installer

    This is a supplementary guide to the main softmod guides. It is meant as a comprehensive method for installing different revisions of Waninkoko's Custom IOS Installer package.

    If you're someone using an older revision of Waninkoko's cIOS, or have a desire to switch from your current revision to a different one, this guide will show you how.

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

    [1] Requirements

    To run this guide as written you will need:
    • Homebrew Channel
    • Trucha-signed IOS 36
    • SD card, USB drive (FAT16/32 formatted), or Gecko device

    This guide covers revisions 17 and 19 of Waninkoko's cIOS. The installations of revisions earlier than 17 are similar to the one described below. Avoid revisions 15, 16, & 18, as well as any revisions 10 and lower.

    *If you aren't sure you meet the requirements, follow one of these 3 guides:
    3.1-4.1 by dogeggs
    4.2 by messie
    4.2 by ShadowSonic2


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

    [2] WAD Installation vs. Network Installation

    Select one or the other during your install depending on your console's internet access. The files included with this guide give you both of these as an option.

    WAD Installation is for those of you with no internet access on your Wii. The installer will read and patch an IOS from the root of your SD/USB/Gecko device. This new "Custom IOS" will then be installed to IOS slots 249 and 250.

    Network Installation is for those of you who have a Wii console with internet access. This option may take a little longer than WAD Installation depending on your internet speeds. Selecting it will download an IOS from NUS (official servers) and seamlessly patch the custom code needed. It will then install this new "Custom IOS" into slots 249 and 250.

    And that's the difference between WAD and Network Installation.


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

    [3] Installing cIOS38rev17



    Download - cIOS38_rev17-Installer.rar

    Extract to the root of your external storage device. Your folders should look like this:
    xx:\apps\cIOS38Rev17 Installer\boot.dol
    xx:\IOS38-64-v3867.wad


    - Load HBC and run cIOS38rev17 Installer.
    - Select IOS36 on the first screen (IOS249 is default).
    - Press A and you'll have two options to choose from: WAD Installation or Network Installation.


    WAD Installation
    • After choosing WAD Installation, select your device and press A.
    • Wait for the patching and installation to finish.
    • Press any button to exit when prompted.
    • Reboot Your Console.


    Network Installation
    • Select Network Installation and wait for the downloading, patching, and installation to finish.
    • Press any button to exit when prompted.
    • Reboot Your Console.


    After you've finished your Network or WAD install and rebooted your console, you're done. You've completely installed cIOS38Rev17.


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

    [4] Installing cIOSXrev19



    Download - cIOSX_rev19-fullpack.rar (13.08MB)

    Extract to the root of your external storage device. Your folders should look like this:
    xx:\apps\cIOS38Rev17 Installer\boot.dol
    xx:\IOS37-64-v3869.wad
    xx:\IOS38-64-v3867.wad
    xx:\IOS57-64-5661.wad
    xx:\IOS60-64-6144.wad
    xx:\IOS70-64-6687.wad


    - Load HBC and run cIOSXrev19 Installer.
    - Select IOS36 on the first screen (IOS249 is default).
    - Press A to pass the disclaimer, B to exit.


    Select base IOS version
    Rev19 is a new type of cIOS which allows you to utilize different base IOS to install from. Here are the various functions of each:

    IOS 37 -> Support for games with instruments (Rockband/GH/etc.)
    IOS 38 -> Widely known, supported, and stable base (USE THIS ONE IF YOU AREN'T SURE)
    IOS 57 -> Slightly increased USB loading speed (maybe 1-2 seconds, if that)
    IOS 60 -> Better network code / The Conduit (?)
    IOS 70 -> SD/SDHC speed/wifi improvements (?)

    *Monster Hunter 3 users go HERE.
    **Note that only base IOS 38 is compatible with Wad Manager.
    • Select your base IOS and press A to continue.
    • You'll have two options to choose from: WAD Installation or Network Installation.


    WAD Installation
    • After choosing WAD Installation, select your device and press A.
    • Wait for the patching and installation to finish.
    • Press any button to exit when prompted.
    • Reboot Your Console.


    Network Installation
    • Select Network Installation and wait for the downloading, patching, and installation to finish.
    • Press any button to exit when prompted.
    • Reboot Your Console.


    Thanks to ShadowSonic2 for creating this video of how a network install should look:

    (The video uses IOS249 to load, which is fine if you've successfully installed a revision of Waninkoko's cIOS already)

    After you've finished your Network or WAD install and rebooted your console, you've completed the installation of cIOSXRev19.


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

    [5] Wrapping Up...

    Any time you want to update or change revisions, here or in the future, you only need to run the installer and follow the instructions described above. The old cIOS will be overwritten by the new one.

    If for some reason things don't seem to be working right and you can't figure out what the problem is, try reinstalling your cIOS -- the code isn't perfect and does occasionally get a bad install.

    cIOS38Rev17 is currently the most highly recommended of Waninkoko's Custom IOS selection here at Wiihacks, due to its ease of use and overall compatibility.

    cIOSXRev19 is an excellent cIOS as well but comes with the added complication of selecting a base IOS, and only base IOS 38 is compatible with Wad Manager. This cIOS revision is for users who are a little more advanced/comfortable with the process and not necessarily required for any homebrew apps or backup loading, other than preference.

    Pretty cool shadow, I also like the music you put with it. Sounds like a dorian to phrygian kinda old school guitar thingy.
    Sent from my van, down by the river.

    Hello,
    in this guide, it says you need the trucha signed ios 36.

    In the two 4.2 guides linked, it appears that the http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...y-4-2-wii.html has that step in it, but the http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...tem-menus.html seems not to?

    I am not sure if my ios 36 is trucha signed or not as I followed the full hacking 4.2 guide by messie.

    To simplify can you bannerbomb (install bootmii, dvdx, and WBC), then remove the stub 249 from nintendo using the part B in the full hacking guide link, and then use HBC to load the cios_rev17 in this guide and go onto wiiflow/usb/etc?

    You can pretty much use any trucha/fake signed IOS, especially if you've already softmodded using one of those guides you can use 249/250. I like referring to IOS36 as a requirement mostly because I think everyone who has a modded Wii should have a fakesigned IOS36, if for nothing more than a fallback IOS in case your 200+ IOS' get corrupted/uninstalled/the dog ate it/whatever.

    Oh and as for shortening the directions on the other guide, what you mentioned should work out fine the goal being getting that stub out and the real cIOS in. But you want to also continue on after that point to get brick protection like Priiloader on your system.

    problems

    so i followed the guide, everything installed fine... but now none of my usb loaders work. Neogamma wont read my usb drive, USB Loader GX reads it but wont do anything once loaded. (it shows all my games but when i click anything nothing happens, just makes sound like its suppose to but stays exactly how it is) its like a partial freeze because everything is still moving and sounds work but nothing happens when you try and power down, boot a game, change settings, ect... before this everything was working fine now its a paperweight... any ideas?

    i installed CIOS 38 as base and now i'm going to try 57...

    Update: 57 caused total lockup with both loaders...

    I assume you are trying Rev 19?
    Some more details would be nice!!!

    Was you cios before working fine? If yes! Why change?

    trying to get monster hunter tri and guitar hero 5 working... MH3 is working now, though i just went back to rev 17. Guitar hero is kinda working, it starts, and lets me pick stuff if theres no instruments plugged in. Once the song is done it freezes, again, if the instruments are connected

    Look here (Hermes IOS 222 is also req'd for any of the GH etc series if instruments available).
