    No other files are needed. You previously completed the 3.1-4.1 softmod, right? So all you need to do is install NeoGammaR6 with the Wad Manager you should still have on your SD card. The only other thing is to run the cIOS36rev10installer. Usually cIOS installers run as apps within HBC. That should do it.

    Do you have Wad Manager still?

    meh this is probably the final question im going to bug you guys about but i've been trying a few things and it doesnt seem to be working. I've just followed the steps provided by gen3sf and downgraded to cIOS36rev10... however, now my wad manager is acting up and freezes everytime i try to load it. I use 1.4 by defult but 1.3-1.5 are having the same issues. Any ideas?

    What was going on that you needed a clean IOS36? It wasn't the switch the NeoGammaR6 or using cIOS36rev10 because that was not needed. Do you have some other problem with the Wii?

    Wad Manager also uses IOS249, it would seem that your overwrite of the previous version of cIOS didn't work out. If you also installed a clean IOS36-yes, the Trucha Bug vulnerability you patched onto IOS36 and then used to install cIOS is gone.

    So, to address the problem you have identified-you need to restore the Trucha Bug and try to install cIOS36rev10again.

    1. follow the cIOS tutorial from Steps 1 - 4, as you want to use cIOS36rev10, DO NOT RUN STEP 5 : http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...s-any-wii.html
    2. instead of Step 5, which would install cIOS38rev14, use this: cIOS36_rev10-Installer.rar, select IOS36 as the one it should use and then select wad install.
    3. if you already installed NeoGammaR6 you are now good to go. If not, use Wad Manager and install it now: NeoGamma R6-NGBL.rar.
    4. If everything works for you and you still want that clean IOS36, you may re-install it now. Only after making sure that apps that use IOS249 such as NeoGamma and Wad Manager are working.

    ok gen3sf ill give you a little background information on why im downgrading. I've softmodded my wii to use neogamma7 rev 14 but apparently it gives off a
    "DVD Read Error 1101" when i try to run backup discs. Many users who are experiencing similar problems have claimed downgrading to neogamma 6 rev 10 fixes the problem. I have first tried to install cIOS35_rev10 ontop of neogamma7 rev 14 without threcha bug restorer but my wad manager screwed up shorty after and freezes so i cannot install neogamma 6.

    I've now tried the steps you outlined above. However Now i have another problem. I followed steps 1-4 flawlessly, however, once I hit step 5 (The step where im suppose to run cIOS36_rev10-Installer.rar, my system freezes and i am left with a black screen and i have to manually reset my wii.

    What steps am I lacking? Why wont cIOS36_rev10-Installer even run?

    Also one last question, if i update to 4.2, would it virginize my wii? Im thinking if this gets too messed up ill just update to 4.2 and try it clean from there.

    Wish I knew. Do two more things that I admit might not work and you will once again be crawling behind the Wii to unplug it:
    1. Do Step 5 with the cIOS36rev10 installer, but select IOS249 to use instead of IOS36
    if no joy...
    2. Do Step 5 with cIOS36rev10installer, this time select IOS35.

    There are some Wiis, often in the LU39 serial code range that do better with cIOS36rev10 and an older NeoGamma. Unfortunately, there are also some that don't do disc backups, but can do USB HDDs with cIOS38rev14 and USB Loader GX. Life would be easier if the Wiis were more well behaved.

    See if cIOS38rev14 will reinstall, if your Wii still goes black and freezes-then it looks like we are trying to install onto a bad slot IOS configuration-that can happen too. We can try again by removing IOS249 and then trying to reinstall cIOS36rev10. If cIOS38rev14 does reinstall, then I really don't know what's up with that older cIOS.

    When you re-did the TBR steps, did you have other files on the SD card? Have only the TBR files: Have only the TBR download files on the SD card. Your SD card will then have only these files on the SD card's Root directory: an apps folder, IOS15-v64-v257.wad, IOS15-v64-v266.wad, IOS36-v64-v3094.wad, and IOS38-v64-v3610.wad.

    In the apps folder will be 4 folders: cIOS38rev14 installer, cIOS36rev10 installer, Trucha Bug Restorer, Wad Manager 1.4 (you can have 1.3 and 1.5 too)

    If you want to use a 4.2 update to wipe it all out-check with messie in the 4.2 hacking guide forum to see if you have to do the Nintendo update (I suspect this is true) or if Waninkoko's 4.2 would be enough to get you a fresh start.

    Before you started on all this I presume you also took the advice for your game backups too: Verbatim DVD-R blanks, ImgBurn or Nero only start burn rate 4X if no good try 2.4X.
