    wad manager

    I am trying to install a few ios, but wad manager will not let me use ios 249 to do it. I keep getting an error. I am trying to get cios38 rev17 and a few others in hopes it will fix some black screen issues I am having on a select few games. I have tried running the cios38 rev 17 as an app in HBC and do a network install, but no matter what I do it will not show up on HBC. I figured the next best thing was a wad install. Is there a reason I can't run wad manager from 249? IF it works from 250 do I now have to boot my usbloader games from 250? The others I am trying to install are

    Is it?
    sd:/apps/cios38 rev17 installer/boot.dol

    you want to make sure if it came with wads, that they go in the root of the sd card. wad installation is preffereed over network installation.

    I will have to verify that is the path. I just downloaded it and used WinRar to to extract the folder to the apps folder on my SD. I tried just the application and the entire folder including text. It shows up on my pc but when loading HBC it is not there. Also I read somewhere this loads/boots from 249. I can only use wadmanager from 250. I am pretty sure I recall having to use 250 for wad installs since day 1 of my original mod, if this helps narrow it down.

    It may be that the folder is supposed to be the root and you need to copy/paste the contents to the root. Cannot say forsure but it is typical rar packaging.

    I will give that a shot. So having to use 250 as opposed to 249 for wads isn't an issue? Also if I put the folder on the root of the sd as opposed to apps folder how will I install it? cios38 rev 14 shows up on HBC and I am pretty sure that went in the apps folder. I think. LOL
    I haven't tried just pasting it to apps either only extracting , I will try that first. Thanks for the quick replies

    What ios did you use in the guide to install the cios rev14?

    Not the folder the contents of the folder. the contents of a cios installer is usually some wad files that go in the root as well as an apps folder that replaces the other apps folder ( not actually replacing it's contents just the folder itself and adding new contents.)

    I am pretty sure it was 249 as a network install. I got the new one on HBC apps. Do I do a network install or wad install? I stopped at this point,to be sure which is best. It says it will install under 249. I am thinking I had to use 250 for wad manager from day 1 so that may be why it will not let me use 249 from there. It appears from HBC it will use 249 though. I vaguely remember reading to try to use 249 for wads if not available try 250, during my mod process. Also I know not to delete the other, just install and allow it to overwrite the old on.....EDIT.... I just went back and looked at step 5 of my mod.(rev14) I chose network install as I didn't know what I was doing and any less options to choose from I took. It was under 249 according to that step.

    Wad install is usually preferred if the installer came with the wad files that go on the root of the sd card i mentioned before. It is usually not a big deal when upgrading a cios, but a must when first installing one.
