    Unhappy need custom IOS38 installer for 4.2

    In the process of soft modding 4.2...IOS38 installer wasn't included in the files I downloaded...go figure.

    It's this kinda stuff that makes a noob FEEL like a noob!

    downloaded from hackmii, got hbc, dvdx, usbloader...blah blah.

    couldn't do nuthin after that

    downloaded rar's...easy

    decided to follow noeman's step by step, did great til step 3 (run custom ios38 installer) not included in download...WTF??

    At least I didn't brick it yet! Anyone got a link that doesn't require membership? Thanx in advance

    Tis better to beg forgiveness...than ask permission

    thanx dave, I tried it your way first. I am a noob so bear with me.

    when I tried to run your ios38 installer it froze with something like "media uploading" ?? at the bottom of the screen. I had an app on the card, couldn't get to it. I know I'm being vague. I tried a few more times and gave up. this noeman's approach seemed fine til I realized the choice on hbc to run custom ios38 installer wasn't there. I emailed them, no reply. Should I start from scratch with your version? I already made some ios changes with the noeman's version.

    Basically, what's the risk of bricking...if any. The wii keeps starting up no prob no matter what I've done so far. I'm impressed, although it was sooooo much easier when I actually had to solder a frickin chip into a PS1 years ago

    Pottyrot,

    i did try to use luffy method before i used messie guide.
    it didnt work for me.
    i got to step 2 and it wont let me delete the IOS.

    so it up to you mate, i personally think that messie guide is the best so far.

    goodluck mate.

    You will have the best of luck following the guides here, and be sure that you stick to one guide and don't leave it unless someone you can trust recommends it. Also if your having trouble be sure to post as many details as possible. "It did not work" and similar will not help anyone help you.
