    WODE - IOS installation guide - The Gecko way

    Some games require that IOS be installed for those games to work. Most of the time the IOS will be contained in an official NINTENDO update. However not everyone wishes to update the firmware of their Wii. This guide is for those who do not wish to do so. This guide is for those who are willing to or have installed both HBC and Gecko.



    To install the IOS only you need to have HBC and Gecko and a FULL backup (ISO or .wbfs including the update partition)


    1. I am assuming you have the HomeBrew Channel Installed and Gecko on your SD Card Already. If not then use this tutorial: TUTORIAL: Install GeckoOS


    2. WODE Settings - Game Patching:
    Region Patch: OFF
    Updates: YES
    AutoBoot: OFF (No longer present for firmware update 2.00 and higher)
    SAVE

    3. Select the game on the LCD

    4. Wait until you see the Update appear in the Wii channel

    5. Start the HBC

    6. Start Gecko

    7. Launch Game

    8. Gecko will state it needs an IOS to be installed and ask if you want to install it. Answer YES (Press "A" )

    Note: All IOS to the best of my knowledge are not region dependant.

    9. The game might start after the installation. Quit the game back to the Wii Main Menu if it does and eject the game.

    The IOS will install.

    10. Change your WODE Settings again.

    11. WODE Settings - Game Patching:
    Region Patch: ON
    Updates: NO
    AutoBoot: OFF
    SAVE

    12. Select the Game
    13. Start the Game via the Disc Channel


    This is a guide that Zephyer put together all I did was some basic edititing. All credit to him all errors and omissions are mine alone. Aether reminded me about the importance of the Update partition in this whole process. So guess you could say it was a WODEteam effort.

    Suggestion, instead of having WODE users install Homebrew Channel (since they might now want it, already being hardmodded), why not put the boot.dol for Gecko OS on the root of an SD Card and bannerbomb. This way they just load Gecko OS to install the iOS instead of actually installing any other channels. The tutorial is very good though and again, it is just a suggestion.

    Honest answer is that I did not know it could be done that way.
