    Question Hermes 222/223 installation on already IOS 249 Softmodded new 4.3E Wii

    Hello,

    Please read my post entirely before replying because it seems like a very common problem but it actually isn't. I read almost every possible guide and they do stuff by following an order. I'm out of that order right now. So, please try to understand my actual problem. I will be grateful to be enlightened.

    1) I bought a new model Black Wii very recently. And I update it to 4.3E.
    2) I decided to softmod. I couldn't find Lego Indy game to softmod by myself and I bring my Wii to a mod-shop.

    3) They isntalled Homebrew Channel 1.0.8 IOS58 v24.32)
    4) They installed cIOS 249 on it.
    5) They installed Neogamma R8 b7
    6) They installed CFG USB Loader V56 on it.
    7) They didn't take any NAND Backup.
    8) I believe, they deleted every tool they used afterwards if they used any because my homebrew channel has nothing other than CFG USB Loader)


    9) I dump my Monster Hunter Tri (PAL) game to my WBFS formetted hard disk.
    10) Game didn't work on CFG USB Loader. But it works if I use the original disc
    11) I made a huge research and learned that it(MH Tri) needs Hermes 222/223 to work properly. I didn't have that !
    12) I update CFG USB Loader to v60-222 via online install. Hoping to get 222 function.
    13) I got a warning message which says 222 is stubbed. CFG USB Loader didn't start !
    14) I overwrite my SD card by using V60.zip and restart the sytem. I didn't get that error message and everthing started to work as before by default IOS 249 setting for games.


    15) Now I want to install Hermes 222/223 to play Monster Hunter Tri.
    16) I read many tutorials but they all expect that we fresh start the operation. They require IOS 236 installation etc. But my device has already got IOS 249 installed on it.


    What should I do for installing Hermes 222/223 safely ?

    I already read 4.3 SoftMod Guide, and other Softmod/Hermes guides. My current situation doesn't fit their explanations since their steps are different than my already finished situation.

    I don't have any brick preventative measures and I can not afford to buy a new wii if brick happens. Repair is not possible within my country as well (and you know how they installed softmod on my Wii without NAND backup.)

    And I decided to ask it at Wiihacks. If there is an answer, it should be in here.

    Thank you for patiently read my colorful text-wall post. And I with to get an attention to someone who had same problem with a solution.

    You can follow the Cfg guide in my signature and install Hermes (look near the bottom) Or install following Stomps IOS222/223/224 guide. Installing the 222 version of Cfg does not install Hermes cIOS, but uses it once you have it installed.

    I read many tutorials but they all expect that we fresh start the operation. They require IOS 236 installation etc. But my device has already got IOS 249 installed on it.
    You should be able to use IOS249 during the installation rather then IOS236. IOS36 should also work depending on how they modded the Wii.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Thank you Krank,

    It seems that I can follow that list. I could understand what to do.
    Please let me ask you the risk factor of a brick for this procedure.

    Yesterday I read something which states that is also possible the Hermes installation may fail because of improper 249 IOS (mine should be v14 but I don't know these things very well) What happens if it fails ? does it brick my Wii ?

    I wish I had my wii when I was living in Canada ^^ I recently paid $400 for Wii in Turkey and I'm paying $100-125 per game. And I use my own dumped games which I own. (yes, I know you don't believe me ^^)
    Your help is valuable for me. I want to protect my wii's driver lens by using HDD for intensive gaming. Thank you.

    EDIT:
    I forget to ask:
    If I install Hermes 222/2223, Can I still use IOS 249 for other games ?
    It's just an game based option to use Hermes right ? I only want to use it for Monster Hunter Tri

    I made preparations for this operation.
    I download Configurable USB Loader FULL v60.rar and extract it into a formatted SD card
    I download cIOS222 and cIOS223 and copied the .wad files to the Wad folder on my SD card
    How can I load WAD manager ? ( I think I missed something )


    Thanks.

    That's correct. It only works with Base38 which is most common, if you have rev 14 or 17 you will have no issues. If it does happen to fail during installation, it will not brick your wii.
    If I install Hermes 222/2223, Can I still use IOS 249 for other games ?

    That's correct. 249 and 222 are installed to separate slots so they do not conflict.
    How can I load WAD manager ? ( I think I missed something )
    Got to HBC and load it up. If you don't have it then you can get it in that thread, or in one of the links in my sig, or by searching. Put it on your SD card like this SD:/apps/wadmanager/boot.dol and it will show up in the HBC.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Thank you !

    I followed what you said and successfully installed 222/223.
    I tried my Monster Hunter Tri dump and and boot the game by using 223. It worked.
    I'm very happy. Thank you.

    Edit:
    I will use my original game disk and boot/play the game by using disk while playing on-line. But for the rest I can finally enjoy without using my disk.

    You shouldn't have any problem playing online as long as you followed the guide and used base 38 merged with 37. I use it often.
