    Did I do it right ?

    Hi

    I'm new to the Wii scene...

    I got my Wii on 12-14. I softmoded it tonight.. I works well. I can play New Super Mario Bros without any problem (with uloader.. coverfloader gets me a green screen).

    I followed this guide :
    HOWTO: Setup a System Menu 4.2 Wii for playing backups of commercial games with uLoader Ade's Softmodding Wii blog

    It told me to delete IOS222 IOS223 IOS249 and IOS250 but I've seen many thread talking about IOS222 and IOS249

    Was it OK to delete them ?

    Did I do anything wrong ?

    You should have a look at our 4.2 guide (in my signature below) as there's probably quite a bit that wasn't covered in the one you followed. Read through and if you have any questions feel free to ask.

    And since this was your first post, The Rules at Wiihacks. Enjoy your stay.

    It probably had you delete the stub files. Firmware 4.2 was designed to disrupt homebrew by installing blank useless stubs in the IOS positions that are used to run the homebrew apps we use. By deleting those you freed the spot up to install the cIOS (customIOS) files needed to get your backups running.

    There are a ton of resources in the Recommended Guides section to check out which answer just about any question you'll run into. If you want to get started with usb loading the 3rd link in my signature is a good read.
