    Some of your IOSs are outdated, I recommend going through the Softmod ANY Wii guide. That will update it


    EDIT: Correction to the above, your cIOSs (custom IOSs) are what are outdated
    You can update them with this guide:

    Although doing the Softmod ANY Wii guide would also give the same outcome of updating your mod, this may be simpler and straight to the point. I apologies if I've caused any confusion.

    Just an FYI for those who are into the technicalities of a wad installation: IOS 236 is nothing more than copy of IOS36 with all patches applied. If you look at the details of this system check, IOS36 already has these patches, therefore IOS236 is not really needed. Also, HBC 1.0.8+ running on IOS58 inherits AHBPROT. This means that full access rights are granted to the wad manager as long as the app supports AHBPROT. If using the d2x installer package from the d2x guide, choice of IOS is skipped because of AHBPROT, and the installation can be done immediately. If using an app such as WiiMod, you can install all wads without having to switch its load IOS. In short, IOS236 is handy, but not really needed for a semi-up to date mod.

    I knew that IOS236 was a copy of IOS36 but never knew about that IOS58 and AHBPROT thing. Thanks for the information.

    I learn something new everyday
    I always assumed 236 was needed (granted I knew it was a copy of 36) because I was always told "use ios236 to install xxxx.wad"

    Please dont get me wrong, IOS236 is great to have. It is one of the first things I install on a virgin Wii. If all else fails you have good ole trusty IOS236. I seem to recall something about internet access and AHBPROT, cant remember the details right off hand. I guess what Im saying is that having IOS236 is great, but its not a deal breaker as long as you have HBC1.0.8+ running on IOS58.

    Thanks for all your replies.

    I just went through the Softmod Any Wii guide anyways, and updated all my IOS and cIOS. I didnīt have IOS236, now i do, and now i can make sure all my system files and mods are completely up to date.
    The only thing i didnīt went through was the optional part of installing 4.1 system menu.
    I left mine at 4.3U version, cause i saw no much advantage in doing the downgrade.
    Should i do it anyways?

    Also, i had installed the Shop Channel on IOS 36 before i updated all the IOS and cIOS and IOS 236 was installed. Is this ok?

    @SnesMaster: i thought we should use IOS249 to install homebrew. Should it be 236? Iīve been using 249 so far.

    I've always used 236 and had no problems but apparently several others are acceptable too lol. I guess whatever works for you is fine

    Another thing that came up: is there any advantage on buying a Wii Classic Controller Pro over a GameCube controller?
    Because from what i was reading, the Classic Controller Pro can only be used on Virtual Console Titles, while the GC Controller can be used for DIOS MIOS, Wii Titles and Virtual Console Titles.
    Am i missing something here about the classic controller?
