    Which IOS do I select? (and other questions)

    Hey guys. Let me just say, great site here. I've been lurking and reading up on some useful stuff here. Now... I wanted to play my games off of my HDD and I found a great tutorial (which is a bit more in-depth than others I've seen) to do it here... BUT I am a bit nervous because it comes to a point in the tutorial when it says...

    Wadmanager should start.(On ios select, select ios36, or try a few, 249, 250 dunno,we are scratching our heads with this)!!
    Would it make a difference selecting a different IOS? Is there a chance I have of bricking my Wii by doing the wrong one?

    Also, what is the purpose of the 00000001 folder mentioned? I do not have one on my SD card.

    Info about my Wii:
    -System update 4.2U
    -WiiConnect24 disabled (well, I turned it off in the options menu, but you never know :P)
    -HBC installed via Smash Stack exploit
    -DVDx installed (though, through the forums I realize that my Wii can most likely not recognize burned CD/DVD's)
    -BootMii installed as IOS
    -I may have some unwanted files installed but I am unsure... My brother's friend decided he would come over and try installing random things from the HBC. I'm not exactly sure what he did, but it still works fine.

    Thank you!

    --A cautious Wii owner

    You won't mess anything up trying the different ios's at that step. Give it a go. If 36 doesn't work try the others.

    If you have the cIOS installed (AKA IOS 249), wad manager should default to IOS 249 that it runs off of. If memory serves, this folder doesn't exist by default (but might for a network install of a cIOS, or similar).

    No you won't brick by selecting the wrong IOS to install. If the IOS isn't patched then you won't be able to use it to install. If you follow the guide on this site then IOS36 will be patched and you will be able to use it to install wads.

    Ahh... yes... IOS249 was the default and I could not change it. I removed it and things seem to be going well so far...

    "Removed it," what? I'm figuring you mean the 00000001 folder --- right?

    Well, I uninstalled IOS249 like the directions said, then installed cios38rev14 via network install.

    Did I do something wrong? :/

    Also, I just tried one of my games with USB Loader GX and my HDD did not show up. The Wii freezes after the countdown timer runs out.

    My drive shows up in CFG USB loader, but upon trying to load a game, I get the following error...
    ERROR: cIOS249rev18, cIOS222v4, cIOS223v4, cIOS224v5 or higher required for starting games from a FAT partition! Upgrade IOS249 or chose a different IOS

    set_frag: -128
    ERROR: SetWBFS: -128

    Press any button to exit...
    Am I supposed to change a setting? Did I do something wrong? My HDD is in NTFS, not FAT, and I have checked compatibility lists... it should work. I have a ripped ISO of my game, not the WBFS file. But CFG USB Loader is supposed to be able to load this...

    Any help?

    Thanks again!

    You need to use the 222 version of Cfg and install Hermes cIOS222/223 v4. Or update your cIOS249....I reccomend the Hermes route though (look in my signature).

    NTFS loading will not work with cIOS249 below Rev19 (you have rev 14).
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Correct me if I am wrong, but are you just now modding your Wii? It appears you are trying to unstub 249. If you have completed the mod and want to load games from fat/ntfs HDD, as Krank stated you need to be on rev 19 at least.

    Depends on what you were trying to accomplish. If unstubbing the slot, that's fine; if removing one version in favor of another, installing over top of it would have been sufficient. Just remember the golden rule: never uninstall an IOS < 200 -- always overwrite.
