    but I have iOS58 v 23.34??? Guess I am confusing the iOS version with the cIOS version?

    All customized IOS versions install as an IOS in the 200+ range. All stock system IOS's are in the 0-100 range. Installing cIOS is safe because it never modifies your original IOS, it just adds another one. You can also easily remove the cIOS without adversely affecting the stock functionality of the Wii.

    The only way to brick your Wii when messing with IOS is to delete or modify a standard system IOS such as IOS30,50,60,70 and IOS80. Stay away from the system ones!



    You also need to understand that there are many IOS versions residing on your Wii side-by-side. They do not overwrite each other and there are codes on the different games that are associated with their respective IOS versions.

    Many IOS versions co-exist, since different games can require different IOS features. System files that the IOS contains are the codes that the Wii uses to communicate with the Wiimotes, nunchuks, USB peripheral, balance board, DVD Drive, Gamecube Controllers, etc. eg: some of the music games may ask you to update the Wii system before playing because there is an updated IOS on the DVD (Game Disc) that will allow the Wii to comunicate with the USB mic etc. Without updating, your game will not operate properly.

    We in the softmod community have the luxury of coders that come up with the safe installers of these IOS, so that we don't have to rely on updating via the Nintendo Game Disc.


    If you have IOS249 installed, that should be your de facto IOS for homebrew and other Wii hacks. An updated cIOS249 (whether from cIOS36_rev[version], cIOS38_rev[version] or cIOSx_rev[version]) is all you need. When a new one comes through, just download the new cIOS installer read the instruction and install.If you have a problem with a newer or buggy cIOS, then just grab an older version's installer file and install it. It's that easy.

    Hope this helps you,
    Cabinetmaster

    Maybe I can ask in a more simplified way.

    If I partition my HDD, 10GB FAT32 and the remainder NTFS using EASEUS. Which partition do I make Active? If I make NTFS Active with my .ISO or backups on that partition and have my Wii Ware. HBC, NAND Emu or VC on the FAT32 will the Wii recognize it if it is not marked as the Active partition?

    If the Wii won't recognize the FAT32 partition if the NTFS partition is set to Active then there is no need in me even formatting. I can just leave the HDD NTFS entirely and just run the Wii Ware, HBC, VC and NAND Emu from an Sdhc card

    Thanks,
    Sorry for asking more than once but I've been stuck here for 2 days so far and can't go any further till I get this ironed out. Well I could but I don't want to have to turn around and re-do all of it if I'm thinking wrong.

    Question WBFS flash drive A OK, NTFS query.

    Hi guys, firstly I'd like to say thanks for all the info I've received whilst stalking around the site. Up until now everything has worked as per the guides. However I now have a small problem. I had been successfully playing backups through an 8GB memory stick formatted to WBFS. As I have many more games I'd like to back up I thought I'd try using LaCie 500GB HDD which is NTFS. After following this guide, my USB loader (USB loader GX) can see my games on the LaCie HDD but when I try to play them the Wii just freezes on a black screen. I soft modded my Wii using the HackMii letterbomb method. How can I check if I have "Waninkoko's cIOSx Rev19+ or Hermes cIOS 222/223 v4+ to use NTFS" ?

    The HDD is 'active' and the backups were loaded onto the HDD with Wii backup Manager (I didn't know at that point that you could use the Wii to rip straight to your storage device). Would using another USB loader help ? so far GX has played everything without a hitch. I perhaps should have mentioned that this process has been way above my level of IT ability and I'm amazed I have gotten this far !

    Any advice would be gratefully received.

    Yes, just go about it the same way you did when you put that game on it that you have on it now. Just delete the files and go again.

    1TB ntfs wbfs problems Windows 7 Update MRT 1/17/12

    I recently used WBFS Manager to format my 1TB ntfs drive so I could use it for my backups. After formatting the drive I noticed under "my computer" I could still access and/or view the drive because windows still recognized the drive as ntfs (I believe but either way I could still access it). Then I used wiibackup manager to transfer my iso and wbfs backups to my drive. Everything was going smooth. Then I noticed windows had an update so I checked the updates and noticed an update for "windows malicious software removal tool" (MRT) so I allowed windows to update along with this tool. And after my computer did a restart I noticed the drive was not accessible and when I checked wiibackup manager there are no backups on the drive it says I have 1tb free space. I am very frustrated with this. Was it MRT that deleted all my files or what? I uninstalled the update and am wondering how I should move forward with formatting my drive. I would like to keep my drive in ntfs format because that allows my to put files larger that 4gb on the hard drive. Any help is more than appreciated and if you need more details please ask thank you very much for your time.

    UPDATE: k well tried backing up xenoblade but keeps CFG keeps freezing during game installation, i then tried the conduit but same thing again. i got a feeling its because my new 16gb isnt active, but not sure. if it is the case how am i able to ungrey "make partition active" or is there a program that can help me to do that?

    will making a partition active keep my pc running as atm i only have a 1 partition which is local disk C and in diskmanagment it says (healthy system) nthing else? (i read that if you make a partition active and the bios doesnt read it/locate primary active partition then your pc wont boot, basically usless)
