    What did he do and how can I undo it AND WHAT AM i TALKING ABOUT?

    Background: My now-ex gave me this wii for Christmas last year (2009).

    He decided he would mod it since it was better that way. He does computer work in IT and has a company and really "knows what he's doing," but this really isn't the case (with the Wii at least).

    We broke up. He had done things to the system and didn't tell me what. He "fixed" it after 3 months of the system not able to play any games but his. Go figure.

    I don't know what he did or about CIOS or IOS, other than their definitions. All I know is that he DID fix the issue of the system not installing .wad files and not playing New Super Mario Brothers, but now I can't play Shaun White Road Trip on a disk. The USB loader doesn't work and he said he didn't really know about it in the first place.

    Wii Fit Plus works and so does New Super Mario Brothers. I want to be able to play the new Shaun White that came out and other new games as well.

    The system is v.4.2 u

    When I try to use Backup Launcher or NeoGamma (R 8 Rc 1, IOS36 (Rev 3351)), it says "Read error (1051) No CIOS." This is for Shaun white.

    I don't understand this, it's like a foreign language that I want to learn to decode. I only understand a little but am stuck, afraid of bricking the thing.

    Could anyone please help me understand this and then go about fixing whatever it is he installed/uninstalled and what I need to do to play these games? I don't know where to start. All I know is I can't start from the beginning guide on how to mod it and I don't know what to delete, etc, because I don't understand the process.

    Thank you in advance.

    1. Backup and Format your SD card(fat32)


    **Remove your USB HDD and all GameCube memory cards and controllers**

    2. Load Multi-Mod Manager from HBC - Select Wad Manager
    -- Press A

    3. Press 1 to install all wads - Press A to confirm

    4. Verify an error free Install of BOTH wad files - Press Home to Exit.

    (MMM is set to load IOS249, if you don't have it then choose "Load another IOS" and select IOS36 or IOS236 or IOS250).

    Note: What this Installs

    Note:

    This will install Waninikoko cIOSx with the recommended/needed base IOS.
    IOS249 Rev20 Is installed as Base IOS56
    IOS250 Rev20 Is installed as Base IOS57



    You now have cIOSx 249 & 250 installed.

    Try loading your game with neogamma ...latest found here http://www.wiihacks.com/software-bac...-channels.html

    Ok this makes me a little nervous.

    1. Could you please explain what I am doing? Why would I need 249 and 250 as opposed to what is on it and why does this fix it? I would like to understand the "why" and how it works. I have a sketchy basic understanding but don't truly understand.

    2. Will this delete everything like my already installed .wads or is this simply just changing the CIOS so it can run things differently?

    When a game normally loads, it checks for an IOS to load from. Having this CIOS is what the backup loader will use to load the game in leu of loading a normal IOS. This is something that most of us have as out configuration, and you appear to have nothing to worry about.
    Give credit where credit is due. If it helps you, click "thanks" on ANY guide I link.

    neogamma only uses ios249 so you wont need/use ios250 unless you use a usb loader such as wiiflow,cfg ...its needed to run loader in return runing your backups

    2. Will this delete everything like my already installed .wads or is this simply just changing the CIOS so it can run things differently?
    it wont delete anything you have it will just let you play your back ups through a back up loader
