    [Advanced] Install Separate Base IOS in cIOSX 249/250

    This is an advanced tutorial - Do this at your own risk. Failure to follow directions explicitly could be hazardous for your Wii console. Bootmii/boot2 with NAND backup and/or Priiloader recommended.


    As someone who prefers using base IOS57 in Waninkoko's new cIOSX, I have been looking for a workaround to regain the ability to use Wad Manager without relying on Hermes or other trucha signed IOS. I imagine in the future there might be other uses for this, or at the very least maybe someone will find it interesting and appreciate the read.

    The following guide assumes you have prior knowledge of installing a cIOS, and will guide you through a series of installing, uninstalling, and reinstalling your custom IOS 249/250 with a final result of having IOS249 with base 57, as well as IOS250 with base 38.

    This is meant to be nothing more than a nice workaround for myself and anyone who's interested. Much credit to WiiBricker for the initial concept.

    =========
    Requirements
    =========

    - Use an SD card for this guide
    - cIOSXRev19
    - BlueDump Alpha 3
    - Wad Manager (I prefer YAWMM)
    - DOP-Mii v12 (ATD Mod will also work)

    =====================
    Installation & Backup of the cIOS
    =====================

    Step 1
    • Load up Waninkoko's cIOSX Rev19 Installer, and install with Base 57
    • Once the custom IOS installation has finished, exit back to HBC

    Step 2
    • Load BlueDump Alpha 3
    • Press A to select 00000001 - System Titles
    • Navigate down or up on the d-pad until you reach the system ticket for IOS249 v19
    • Press 1, then right two times on the d-pad to highlight Backup to WAD
    • Once the code finishes and you're on the System Titles screen again, press Home to return to HBC

    Step 3
    • Connect the SD card to your computer
    • Move your new IOS249r19 wad from ROOT:\BlueDump\WAD\ to ROOT:\wad\
    • Reconnect your device to the console and boot up HBC


    =================================
    Removal & Installation and ... Removal? of the cIOS
    =================================

    Step 4
    • Load DOP-Mii
    • Use an IOS with NAND Permissions to load the app that is NOT 249 or 250 (If you aren't sure run a SysCheck)
    • Select the first option to load into the IOS navigation window
    • Press right on the d-pad until you reach IOS249, press minus (-) to uninstall (A to confirm)
    • Press right once more to highlight IOS250, uninstall this as well
    • Never uninstall any IOS under 200. You have been warned.
    • Press Home to exit DOP-Mii and return to HBC

    Step 5
    • Load up Waninkoko's Rev19 Installer again
    • Choose IOS36 to load the Installer
    • This time, when asked, choose IOS38 as a base to install
    • Once the custom IOS installation has finished, exit back to HBC

    Step 6
    • Load DOP-Mii again
    • Using any IOS with NAND Permissions that is NOT 249, continue to the 2nd screen
    • Select the first option to load into the IOS navigation window
    • Press right on the d-pad until you reach IOS249, press minus (-) to uninstall
    • Press Home to exit DOP-Mii and return to HBC


    ===================
    Final Restoration of the cIOS
    ===================

    Step 7
    • Load up Wad Manager using IOS250
    • Navigate to the backed up IOS249r19.wad you created earlier using BlueDump and install
    • Exit the app, return to System Menu, and reboot the console

    You now have IOS249 Base 57 for USB loading, and IOS250 Base 38 for Wad Manager.


    ----------------
    I hope you've found this little guide informative, and that it will help a few of you install your wads with a little more ease under Rev19 and beyond.

    Remember that this process is not intended (or necessary) for users new to softmodding. If you have questions about installing a cIOS, or what a cIOS is/does, you may want to consider getting some more experience under your belt before attempting this.

    I think the cios installer need to be modified to allow the selection of the destination ios slot >200 for those wishing to have multibase installs.

    Nice guide.

    Thanks. I agree, and I've seen a lot of chatter of people requesting this in a future revision as well. With the surprises in 18 & 19, who knows what we'll see in rev20.

    Question

    Hi this guide was exactly what I was looking for however I'm a little confused. Are you using ciso249 with a base of 57 to run your backups? and are you running using ciso 250 to install .wad files on your wii?

    it seems to me that you are using BlueDump Alpha 3 to create a .wad file that installs ciso 249 rev 19 with a base of iso38 in the 250 system ticket slot. Is this correct or am I misinterpreting something key in the guide?

    If this is the case how are you able to install ciso 249 rev 19 with iso57 as a base when in step 1 and in step 5 it is never selected as a base iso? you can't run Wadmanager unless you have ISO 38 as a base correct? So why would you pack a .wad file with 38 as the base instead of 57?

    Wouldn't the process go:
    1.install cios249 with the base as iso 57
    2.use BlueDump Alpha 3 to pack this into a .wad file
    3.use DOP-Mii to delete ciso249 with the base as iso 57
    4.use DOP-Mii to delete the stub or whatever is in the 250
    5.install ciso 249 with ISO 38 as a base so you can use Wadmanager
    6.install the .wad that has ciso 249 with iso 57 into slot 250

    so now you would have ciso 249 rev 19 with 38 as a base in slot 249 and ciso 249 rev 19 with iso 57 as a base in slot 250

    or in my #6 am I just using telling wadmanager to use slot 250 to install ciso 249 rev 19 with iso a base of 57
    Which would be equivalent to using some sorta of pseudo installer for cisoXRev19 instead of the one released by Waninkoko.

    Does SysCheck (or any other app) give information on what iso are used for base installation? I'd like to be able to check if I've installed this properly after the fact.

    The steps you described are actually the opposite of what the guide is for, which is to set you up with an IOS249/base57 and IOS250/base38. The Bluedump Alpha section creates a WAD of IOS249/base57, to be installed after IOS250/base38 has been installed on the system.

    Are you using cIOS 249 with a base of 57 to run your backups? and are you running using cIOS 250 to install .wad files on your wii?
    That's exactly right.

    Does SysCheck (or any other app) give information on what iso are used for base installation? I'd like to be able to check if I've installed this properly after the fact.
    Unfortunately no. There's no way currently to tell what base IOS has been used other than real-world trial and error. The most accurate tell-tale is to attempt to install a WAD with both IOS 249 and IOS 250. Whichever one gives you a ret = -1 error is your non-base38 IOS.

    Hope that clears things up.

    Edit: Wow. I have no idea why I changed that, or how it escaped me for so long, but thank you for bringing it to my attention. I've made an edit right near the top which really should clear things up.

    I like how my "logic" manged to do the exact opposite of what the guide intended
    When exactly do you use iso 57 as a base for the 249 installation. I still cant seem to find it in any of the steps. Sorry for being a nusiance.

    Edit: Lol okay at least I'm not going crazy... I thought it seemed odd when I first read it.

    No it's not your fault, it was an error in the guide in one of the worst possible spots. Check out step 1 again, that's where you install with Base 57.

    I have no idea why I changed it to 38, but alas, mistakes do happen.

    Ten gold stars Ithian! It would be awesome to have rev20 allow you the option to choose a base, but Wanikoko is a busy man I'm sure. Until then, Thanks!
