What is it?
It's a software modification for your Nintendo Wii to allow you to
play almost all of your backup burnt Wii and GameCube games via the
disc channel without opening your console or having to use a loader
What's in it:
IOS09 = IOS33 v2834 with rev14 DIP
IOS11 -> IOS15 = IOS33 v2834 with rev14 DIP
IOS17 = IOS33 v2834 with rev14 DIP
IOS20 -> IOS22 = IOS33 v2834 with rev14 DIP
IOS28 = IOS28 v1293 with rev14 DIP
IOS30 = IOS33 v2834 with rev14 DIP + ES_Identify Patch
IOS31 = IOS31 v3092 with rev14 DIP
IOS33 = IOS33 v2834 with rev14 DIP
IOS34 = IOS34 v3091 with rev14 DIP
IOS35 = IOS35 v3092 with rev14 DIP + ES_Identify Patch
IOS36 = IOS36 v3094 with rev13b DIP + ES_Identify Patch + NAND Permissions Patch
IOS37 = IOS37 v3612 with rev14 DIP
IOS38 = cIOS249 rev13b with rev14 DIP
IOS50 = IOS50 v4889 with rev14 DIP + ES_Identify Patch
IOS53 = IOS53 v5149 with rev14 DIP
IOS55 = IOS55 v5149 with rev14 DIP
IOS60 = IOS60 v6174 with rev14 DIP + ES_Identify Patch
All IOS have the Trucha Bug restored.
cmios Installer (GC Mode):
bc = bc v5 + Trucha Bug Restored
cmios = mios v4 with GC Backup Launcher embedded but
with mios v9's tmd, ticket, and banner info.
DVDX Fix Installer:
IOS201 = IOS36 v3094 + Trucha Bug Restored + ES_Identify Patch + NAND Permissions Patch
DVDX = DVDX, but runs under IOS201 instead of IOS36
How to install it:
Unpack the contents of this .zip file to your SD card and run the
"cIOSCORP v3.3 Installer" application via the Homebrew Channel,
sit back, and wait a few minutes. That's it!
If you want to load backup GameCube games aswell, then run the
"cmios Installer" application via the Homebrew Channel, after
installing cIOSCORP v3.3. If you already have a cmios and don't
want to change it, then don't run "cmios Installer".
IOSes 30, 35, 36, 50, and 60 now all have the ES_Identify Patch
in them. This fixes preloader compatibility, and should allow the
majority of homebrew applications to identify as SU (SuperUser).
This patch will only allow identification as SU, but not others
like SystemMenu, so programs like AnyTitle Deleter won't be able
to identify as SystemMenu.
The custom DIP Modules used in cIOSCORP v3.3 do not support DVDX,
as AFAIK the DIP Module uses a modified DVDX inside it to read
the backup DVD-R discs, so cIOSCORP v3.3 now includes a workaround
to this. Just run the "DVDX Fix Installer" application via the
Homebrew Channel. This will install an unmodified IOS36 as IOS201
and a DVDX channel that runs under said IOS201. Be aware that this
WILL OVERRIDE ANY PREVIOUS DVDX INSTALLATION!!!
Comment from dmm:
"We tried to make it as noob friendly as possible. Read README,
copy it over, run it, done! Now just pop in a disc and play!"
Does it work with LU64+ or equivalent Wiis?
-> YES! It is the ONLY full-on disc channel loading solution for
LU64+ and equivalent Wiis!
cIOSCORP v1 and v2 will BRICK LU64+ (or equivalent) WIIS!
Do I have to uninstall anything before installing this?
NEVER UNINSTALL OR DELETE ANY SORT OF SYSTEM FILES!
DO NOT UNINSTALL THE SYSTEMMENU!
DO NOT UNINSTALL ANY IOS!
DO NOT UNINSTALL THE BC!
DO NOT UNINSTALL THE MIOS!
DON'T EVEN TOUCH BOOT2! (let bootmii do that, if it can)
OR ELSE YOU WILL KILL YOUR WII!
Just make a NAND backup if you can, then run the installer.
Can I switch off or unplug the Wii during installation?
Is there any way to cancel the installation during the install
DOING SO WILL KILL YOUR WII!
Once you press "Load" in the Homebrew Channel, or load the
"cIOSCORP v3.3 Installer" application, you can't stop the
Does preloader and the System Menu spaz out with a
"System Files are corrupted" message when installed on a 3.xx Wii?
-> Not anymore!
My discs don't show up in the System Menu! What do I do?
-> Try to experiment with enabling and disabling preloader hacks,
especially if the hack's name has the words "region", "game"
and/or "disc" in it, or maybe change your Wii's region setting.
Does the Hackmii Installer work?
It should do, now that IOS36 has the NAND Permissions Patch.
I can't test it as it freezes on my console, unless I have the
OLD NON-LU64+ IOS36 v1042 installed, which I refuse to use as
using this in cIOSCORP v3.3 will break LU64+ console support.
DVDs won't read properly in MPlayer! What do I do?
The following answer is based on MPlayer_CE: try going to "Open,
File, Wii DVD", this should mount the DVD, which you can then go
back and select "Open, DVD Video, Play DVD", or maybe select
"Play Title #x" instead, or you could try going to
"Open, File, Wii DVD" and load the .VOB file you want to play.
Or you could just select "Play DVD" and wait several minutes.
Does Ghostbusters work?
Ghostbusters gives a black screen! What do I do?
-> This should be fixed, but if not:
Try to experiment with enabling and disabling preloader hacks,
especially if the hack's name has the words "region", "game"
and/or "disc". Maybe even try changing your Wii's video mode from
NTSC to PAL, and vice versa. Make sure the iso you're using hasn't
had a patch video mode, or been patched to use an IOS other than
IOS53, or been patched at all. Make sure it's not a bad dump, etc.
If I still gives a black screen, then I don't know what to do.
Maybe there's a setting you mised and didn't change.
Ghostbusters freezes at the Wrist Strap Health & Safety Screen!
What do I do?
-> According to WiiPower, this seems to be a problem with the Scene
Release, which could be a bad dump. There is a "disc eject trick"
that I found on gbatemp (can't remember who posted it, though.
@Whoever discovered this, credits to you.) I have reworded it into
Start at the wii menu
1. Make sure the nunchuk is connected before starting
2. Insert disc
3. Banner should load up in disc channel
4. Hit Start (but be ready to hit eject)
5. You should see the screen flicker for a second, when this
happens, HIT EJECT IMMEDIATELY!
6. It should say "Please Insert Disc blah blah blah", just wait a
few seconds, then insert the disc.
7. The game should load fine from that point.
This might have to be tried a few times, and will need practice
Here's a quote from WiiPower from this thread:
"Problem category 3(heath screen freeze games)
These games freeze at the heath screen for some users, mostly for
people using discs and that only get 3x reading speed. There's no
real solution for this problem yet. Some people get it to work by
pressing certain buttons with the correct timing. And many people
report that they get the game to load by pressing eject with the
correct timing, and reinserting the disc when they are asked for.
The correct timing seems to be as soon as the screen flashes white
for the health screen. And a 3rd solution that is reported to work
is to remove the sd card. It seems these problems are caused by
faulty piracy releases, many people reported that a self created
backup works flawlessly, while the 3 burns before have this issue.
Maybe this problem is caused by scrubbing the game."
Comment from dmm:
"Fixing Ghostbusters compatibility really pissed us off.
I mean REALLY. I'm assuming it pissed off the testers aswell.
It took 5 fixes to make it work. Animal Crossing Wii worked with
the first fix we made for it.
If I ever see a ghost, I am going to personally bust the
damn thing myself!"
My Wii Speak channel doesn't work! What do I do?
You must have installed cIOSCORP v3.1, which had a modified IOS56,
which didn't work. Use the application "DOP-IOS" to download and
reinstall IOS56, or you could acquire a copy of the file
"IOS56-64-v4890.wad", and install using Wad Manager.
This this related to the original cIOSCORP?
Are you affiliated with any of the creators of the original
waninkoko - made the cIOS249 we all know and love, I used DIP
modules from that to make cIOSCORP v3.3
Wiigator - made the cmios which is used in cIOSCORP v3.3
WiiPower - for telling me about rev14's DIP Module breaking
Dual Layer Support
- for explaining the "Problem category 3
(health screen freeze games)"
icefireicefire - made the original cIOSCORP installer, I modified
that to install cIOSCORP v3.3
WiiBlaster - the creator of the original cIOSCORP, he let me
use the name "cIOSCORP" as no other name seemed
to fit what this modification does
And of course...
All of my testers (too many to name, you all did an
ABSOLUTELY SUPERB JOB! Without you guys, this
would never be as refined as it is now!)
v3.3 - changed DIP Module in IOSes 30, 50, and 60 to
use rev14, i.e. the true #002b error fix
(Ghostbusters, etc. SSBB is unaffected)
- added DVDX Fix workaround
- added NAND Permissions Patch to IOS36
- changed the ES_Identify patch (results didn't

- updated the README
v3.2 - added the ES_Identify Patch to IOSes 30, 35,
and 50 (preloader fix)
- fixed Animal Crossing Wii compatibility
- fixed Ghostbusters compatibility as much as
- moved cmios to use an installer separate to the
main installer, for people who don't want to
install the included cmios
- removed IOSes 51, 56, 57, and 61 as they are
- completely overhauled the README
v3.1 - fixed the #001 errors many games were giving.
v3.0 - Unreleased, due to the amount of #001 errors.
