    Question Softmodding a new 4.1U, where's IOS249?

    I just bought a Wii from WalMart with the $50 gift certificate deal and am ready to softmod it. I've done them before but this is the first console that I got with 4.1U out of the box. I'm using the typical tutorial but am stuck at the part where I use Wad Installer 1.4 to install the IOS38,50,53,55... I'm trying to install the patched IOS60 first but can't seem to find or know how to get IOS249 on my system to allow me to install the patched IOS60 as it only shows IOS254 available to use. Am I missing something? Can I extract or install IOS249 off a game or grab it off of NUS downloader? If that's the case, then what IOS do I use to install IOS249 with WAD Installer? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    Follow a proper tutorial that actually deals with IOS249 installation.

    That's exactly the tutorial I'm using. I'm stuck at part 5a. I haven't installed PriiLoader nor do I care to. Is that what I'm missing? Thanks for the reply!

    I have obtained IOS249 v65280 thru NUS downloader. What IOS do i use under Wad Installer to install it? Thanks again!

    Nothing but trouble in here. Please, please please start over, do some reading- before you brick your wii. Everything you have said is wrong. Follow the 3.1-4.1 guide, unless you actually installed ios249, then you will need the follow the 4.2 guide. both are linked below.

    Don't install the IOS from NUS Downloader as it's the stub in use on 4.2 and will mess up your Wii.

    That is exactly the SAME guide I am using! I'm still stuck at step 5a! I have followed everything to the T (I have not installed Priiloader though, nor do I care to) and I'm still stuck at step 5a with no IOS249 to select to install the patched IOS60.

    Please anyone who knows what to do, I would greatly appreciate any info on how to get IOS249 or where and how it's obtained instead of being told to read the same tutorial that has me stuck and not even mentioning how to get IOS249 or from where it's installed from? I have not installed IOS429 and am running a virgin Wii with 4.1U right outta the box. Thanks!

    If you are unable to select ios249 then step 3 was unsuccessful. Repeat step 3 and ensure there are no error.
