    cIOSCORP v3.6 Uninstall Question

    Hey guys, I am wanting to uninstall cIOSCORP v3.6 from my LU70+ 4.2u Wii. I was wondering if, when it is uninstalled, the uninstaller applies the patched IOS60 and IOS70, or if it applies the unpatched versions. I followed the wonderful 4.2 guide here on WiiHacks, and it says that if I don't install IOS60patched and IOS70patched before installing Priiloader, it will cause problems. I sure don't want to cause any issues with my Wii by uninstalling cIOSCORP (which I never had a problem with, just don't use with a D3-2 drive). Should I try overwriting the IOS60 & IOS70 from the Uninstall pack with the patched versions before running the uninstall, just to be sure? Or will that cause untold problems? Sorry to bother you guys with such mundane questions, but I thought I would ask the experts before messing anything up.

    Run the cioscorp uninstaller, let it finish, install ios70patched.wad from the 4.2 guide, install priiloader. That way it's a done deal and you don't have to worry about accidentally using an unpatched IOS. A good school of thought with softmodding is to never leave anything up to chance.

    Hence the reason I asked, never leave anything to chance. I didn't know if, after the uninstall, the IOS60 or IOS70 would be accessed before I could patch them and reinstall Priiloader, causing issues. But if the uninstaller just puts you back at HBC (using IOS61, as usual) then it should be fine to run Wad Manager and install the patched IOS's and the Priiloader installer. I'm on the right track with this, right?

    Yeah mostly. The cioscorp uninstaller uses some older versions of IOS and installs the various Korean IOS as well, but the Wii will function as normal again and you'll be able to install ios70patched fine. ios60patched is for 4.0-4.1 system menus, 4.2 doesn't access it at all.

    About the older IOS versions, you may need to update them later on (this has nothing to do with IOS70 and installing priiloader, I'm just giving you a heads up) in case you have a game that black screens. To do so follow this thread: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...s-use-run.html

    So basically the only real risk to uninstalling cIOSCORP, if done correctly, is some black screens on loading games? Not too bad. Ok, what would happen if I was to use NUSD to download the updated IOS's, rename them to the filenames used by the cIOSCORP Uninstaller, and use the updated IOS files for the uninstall instead of the outdated IOS's in the Uninstaller pack? As long as the filenames match, the updated IOS's should be installed, and would keep me from getting black screens, right? I realize I'm going a little off topic here, but I just want to figure out how right I am about this.

    BTW, thank you very much Ithian, for your expertise. The reason I ask such stupid questions is because one day I want to be as smart about this as you are. We all start somewhere.

    No I understand why you'd want to try that, it would save some time. But in the interest of taking safety over efficiency I'd say just run the uninstaller as-is, then update the IOS you need individually using NUS. The only reason is I just don't know what effect doing that would have on the uninstaller, if any, and I wouldn't want my suggestion to be the source of your brick.

    But as a consolation prize, let me offer you this well-written guide detailing all the latest IOS revisions so you know which ones to update after you run the uninstaller: http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-gu...functions.html



    edit: Oh and thank you for the compliment. You're taking the right approach asking before doing. Like you said we all start somewhere. Just keep reading and asking the right questions and you'll get there yourself in no time.

    Ok, after comparing the wads in the uninstall pack to the "IOS Files and Functions" page, I would say that the uninstaller is based on a 3.2 firmware version. IOS30 v1040, for example, is used by System Menu for firmware v3.2. This is the IOS in the uninstall pack. Is the uninstall going to basically downgrade me to 3.2? I sure don't want to do that, since I am stuck with Boot2v4's evilness. And I don't want all of the extra Korean IOS's clogging up space and potentially causing issues. Maybe my best course of action would be to download all of the updated wads with NUSD, and install them manually. What is your view on the subject?

    No. Downgrading is something you'd have to do intentionally. The uninstaller just sets those IOS to older versions.

    4.2 calls specifically on IOS70. Having any version of IOS 30 won't matter because 4.2 system menu will never use it - neither will any game. Each IOS has multiple versions and is only accessed when an application calls on it, and only one at a time is ever called on by any game/app.

    I don't want all of the extra Korean IOS's clogging up space and potentially causing issues.
    For the same reasons as above having korean IOS won't cause any issues as nothing ever calls on them, plus they really don't take up much space.

    // Edit: And keep in mind that you already have all the korean IOS installed on your system as part of the cioscorp package. The uninstaller doesn't add them, cioscorp already did that. The uninstaller will just overwrite them with factory standard versions. //

    You can get rid of them, but you must be careful if you follow this advice: After running the cioscorp uninstaller, take the korean IOS WADs directly from the cioscorp uninstaller folder, place them in your wads folder and uninstall them using wad manager. Keep in mind, be absolutely sure you're uninstalling ONLY the korean IOS files - Uninstall the wrong IOS and you could do some serious damage to the console.

    What is your view on the subject?
    Run the uninstaller and update your IOS individually.

    Ok, I am going to follow your guidance and just run the uninstaller as-is. Now, my next question would be, how would I know which IOS to update when I get a black screen?

    Using the guide I linked above (here it is again http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...s-use-run.html) find your game, find the IOS it uses, download using NUS and install with wad manager.
