    What is Cios ?

    Well im about to follow the guide of messie to softmod your 4.2u Wii , and do i really need to follow the step B ( PART B: The extermination of the evil stub ios249 ) and step C the installation of another Cios.

    The last time i was softmodding my wii , i got it bricked , i did all step perfectly til D , and when i began step D , my wii started to mess up .

    Note : All i want is to download Wii Iso games and put it on my USB key and play them without any problems. This is ALL what i want . No hacks , apps, emulator or anything else.

    Well you'll need apps to play backups, and you need to run most of the guide to get those backups playing including steps B and C. A cIOS is an ios with custom signed code which allows 3rd party material to function on the console.

    cios is custom ios files. If you want a good explanation look at the second link in my sig.

    You need cios to play games. And you need some apps to load games. Just follow the guide, if you skip stuff you could mess up your wii.

    It's helpful if you can't install bootmii as boot2 in case of semi bricks and also contains some useful system hacks. Just make sure you install ios70patched beforehand and the install should be fine.
