I got it, I got it, works just for me now... when i'm using 223 it still hangs up, but when i changed it to 222, then it goes smooth..hang ups is gone, i don't know what really happen, but it's fine right now.....

Hi, i tried the cios installer 222 but the game still doesn't work. Now whwnever i load the usb loader gx, it has a much longer startup time (i load from a wad channel). Is there anything else i can do to get the game working? or atleast a way to revert it back so the channel doesn't have such a long startup time?

Okay, I've went through the Hermes installer successfully now, but I've ran into another problem. I'm a disc user, and apparently even though the OP claims that CFG USB Loader and USB Loader GX can be used for disc loading, they won't let you use them at all unless you have a properly-formatted hdd plugged in. I've looked around for other users talking about disc loading methods, but the only things I've found involve softchip, cioscorp, darkorp, and/or downgrading. Surely there's a disc loader that allows you to select 222/223. So, what disc loaders allow this, and of those, which are recommended? It's times like this that I wish wiibrew didn't have a no loader policy. I'll continue to search around the forums while I wait for a reply.
EDIT: I guess I've been making a potentially erroneous decision: Are softchip and/or darkorp something to be avoided? I know I've seen cautions against cioscorp and downgrading several times, but I don't really know anything about softchip or darkorp. Can someone educate me on whether or not these would have the potential to cause problems?
EDIT2: I gave up and formatted a spare thumb drive to get into CFG USB Loader. Right now, I have it working by forcing NTSC, using the anti-002 fix, and selecting IOS 222-mload. I'm not sure what the difference between the -mload and -yal versions selectable are, but I'll experiment (as well as with 223 and not forcing NTSC/using the anti-002 fix). The video would briefly stop (fraction of a second) every couple of seconds with the setting I described, so I'm going to try to figure out what was causing that.
EDIT3: Scratch that. I thought that the freeze was supposed to come earlier than it actually did. I've tried with both the -mload and -yal versions of both 222 and 223 with 002 patch and forced NTSC on. I'm going to try each of those with each combination of 002 and forced NTSC on and off now to see if that makes a difference, but I somehow don't think it will.

Okay, so I've gone through nearly every variation of the options discussed in my last post in CFG USB Loader, and I've yet to be able to actually get into the game (past "New game" or whatever). When I used the Hermes installer, I selected 249-->223-->38 merged with 37 as instructed. People have said that 223 didn't work for them, but 222 did. Would I need to go back into Hermes' installer and select 249-->222-->38 merged with 37? Can any combination of options I choose in Hermes' installer result in unwanted changes to my Wii? I'm desperate for help with this; I feel like this game is starting to defeat me.

I don't disagree, but it's considered "bad form" for a Jr. mod to alter or edit a full mod's guide/tutorial. Ithian and I talked to dave_pm when it was decided to split the thread. We felt editing his post copied to the other thread to indicate in big red letters this is for users who DON'T want to use IOS 223/222, that this would not be frowned upon in terms of making a distinction. Let us know how it goes and good luck.

follow the steps exactly the guide watermelon22 has done
so yes try agin this time Select to Install Custom IOS 222 and select IOS38 merged with IOS37
Wait for download and installation to complete
Start HomeBrew Channel and start the cIOS 222 Installer again
Select IOS249 to perform the install again
This time select Custom IOS 223 and select merge with IOS38 and IOS37.
In your USB loader, make sure to load with CIOS223 when you're booting the game.

I've installed both 222 and 223 as instructed, but still can't get it to work. I've left "force NTSC" on in CFG while doing both "Anti 002 fix" on and off on all of 222-mload, 223-mload, 222-yal, and 223-yal. I don't know why there are "-mload" and "-yal" versions of the two since no one else seems to have mentioned them in this thread, and if forcing NTSC for the video could cause the buzz (doubting it), then maybe one of those are my problem, but I've done everything to the T, making sure that the instructions I followed were very explicit. I don't know why it would make a difference, but I'm going to try USB Loader GX now instead. If this doesn't work, I may just give up on this game. It'll be sad since I was looking forward to questing with some irl friends, but it is simply not worth this frustration.
EDIT: USB Loader GX just tells me I need to select a partition to format then gives me a DSI exception, not letting me do anything until I do. Whoever codes CFG and GX needs remove it being necessary to have a USB device loaded in order to do anything. With CFG at least you can put in any USB device, regardless of whether it's formatted properly to get to the menu, but with GX you can't even do that. I'm giving up on this unless someone has further suggestions. I can't fathom why what has worked for so many others isn't working for me. If anyone's curious, I'm on 4.0U.
I used Hermes' installer (v4, linked in the OP) to install both 222 and 223 (249-->223-->38 merged with 37; 249-->222-->38 merged with 37), then have been trying to boot my disc through CFG USB Loader (also linked in the OP). I put in a small thumb drive to get past it needing a USB device (it tells me to format a partition, I select the only partition on the device, a gray screen comes up where I can press up and down to go through a number of screens that say things like "flow" or something like that. Eventually I get to the gui with the flipping cases (all of them are ?'s because there are no games, obviously), at which point I can exit back to CFG's main menu and it says "No games found!". I hit - to bring up the menu, select boot disc, it reads the disc, I hit 1 to bring up the options, I play with the options doing minor variations on what people have suggested, as stated above, press 2 to save the settings, then press A to load it. The game loads, the opening cinematic stops every second or so (the audio plays fine, though), then the main menu comes up. I press A to start a new game and I get a black screen with the beep.

For people that got this to work, can you tell me what external hdd you are using?
Because I've figured out that my 16gb kingston datatraveler causes dsi exceptions if I use hermes v4 and my 160gb wd passport just black-screens with any cios.
