Step 3: Installing cIOS36 rev 10

1. Open up your homebrew channel and launch the cIOS36 rev 14 installer.

2. You press A to accept the agreement and then use left and right to choose your installation method. I would reccomend Network, but there are the inevitable few who do not have their wii hooked up to wireless internet. You will need to get the IOS38-64-v3610 wad from the download link in step 2 and it should already be in the root of the sd card. Select wad installation if you have no internet access. Once the program is finished, restart the wii.

<p>Hey whenever I put my SD card in and go to the Homebrew Channel the only thing there is the Homebrew Browser, I installed this earlier. Am I missing something? I did as the instructions said, granted I had to go find my own download links. </p><p>Thanks in advance</p>
<p>I made the same mistake you did and i figured it out when i saw anuther guys sd card on a youtube video and i got my SD card to read with homebrew. Make sure you have boot.elf in the SD directory and it should work. heres a list of my SD card.</p>
<p>Some of these links no longer work. Can you please give me ones that do? Thanks</p>
<p>Some of the links are broken, and I can't search for them on my own because all you said is &quot;download this&quot; without saying what the file is called.</p><p>Can you please either re upload the links or tell me what the file is so I can download it!</p>
hey nice instructable<br /> i have a question for you<br /> i have a wii and it has a mod chip in it <br /> can i do this if the mod chip is still inside?<br /> will this damage my wii if there is a mod chip inside it when i do this<br /> thanks<br /> akinich
<p>You don't need this if you have a modchip. You just burn the ISO onto a DVD-R and put that in your Wii. If you have a double-layered game, like Brawl, put it on a DVD-R DL.</p>
Hi, i dont understand when you say &quot;Copy the <strong>CoverFloader</strong> folder into the SD://apps/ folder&quot; wheres SD://apps/folder? Is it in my sd card? im confused
since i didnt understand where to copy coverfloader and cios rev 14, i copied them to the root of my sd card and when i plugged my card on the wii, i see nothing in the homebrew channel, please help!! sorry for being such a noob :(<br /> <br /> Am I supposed to make a &quot;Apps&quot; folder in my card? :S
i have a similar problem, when i make an apps folder it has the same problem as yours. HELP US PLEASE!!!!!
Yes, if you do not have an &quot;Apps&quot; folder you should make one.<br>You sd card should have:<br> SD://apps/CoverFloader<br> SD://apps/Cios Rev 14<br> SD://apps/WADManager<br><br>hope that makes sense.
does his work with sd cards?<br>
I accept the agreement and choose IOS36 and then SD card and then it says something like <br><br>mounting device.....success<br>retrieving files......failed<br><br>Any help?
i cant shrink any volume, is it necessary for me to shrink volume? if it is can someone please help me to shrink volume. look at the two pictures so that its easier to understand.
In WBFS , there is a little tab at the top that says Format. Al you have to do is select the drive (E) and then click format, it automatically formats for you, then continue the rest of the steps.
&nbsp;The seme here. How to solve it?? HELP!!
does this work on 4.3?
plzzzzz help!!! i don't have the cIOS36 rev 14 installer. what do i do
Well I am going to try this method out I think. I have tried to do this softmod with no success. So now this is going to be my last shot at it. I will follow this Instructable to the letter and see what happens. I will let anyone who is still following this know how it goes. If I am able to make this work anyone can. This will be a few days. Good Luck To Me!!
Coverfloader doesnt evn show as a wad file on mine
ok i got it good luck to everyone else
where did you find it?
Can i use the same card with homebrew installer on it?
it wont let me unzip it
I&nbsp;am having similar issues as many of the other posters here. I went through and redid all the previous instructions 3 times just to be sure I had not made an error.&nbsp;I'm running 4.2 of course, so&nbsp;this may be the issue. Also,&nbsp;I'm using an 8gb sd hc card which I've used in the past to run homebrew with zero issues.<br /> <br /> When I&nbsp;try to run the cIOS36 rev 10 installer, my remote freezes up and I get a black screen. I've waited a decent amount of time while periodically trying to turn my remote on with no success.&nbsp;If anyone has any ideas or solutions, I'd greatly appreciate it.<br />
I found at somewhat stable cISO here: <a href="http://www.starcube.co.uk/2009/08/wii-cios-38-rev-14/" rel="nofollow">www.starcube.co.uk/2009/08/wii-cios-38-rev-14/</a><br /> <br /> But, now I am running into another issue I've seen people have run into.&nbsp;When&nbsp;I press A in the version selection screen (which is the first screen after selecting the cIOS installer in Homebrew) my remote no longer communicates with my Wii and I'm left at this first screen. I've tried my other remotes and simply waiting for over an hour with no positive results. Again, any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.<br />
Hah!&nbsp;Long story short,&nbsp;I had to choose cIOS36 because I had not previous cIOS installed. If you use the link above, download that cISO and have no previous cIOS installed, choose cIOS36 and you should be able to move on to the next step. Onward!<br />
&nbsp;hi, I am running 4.2 also, I was wondering what you meant by choosing cIOS36 again since in your first post you said you had the black screen, since thats what I am getting too, I also tried your link to cIOS38 and same thing happened to me. What rev of cIOS36 did you end up using and can you post a link to it please? Thanks!!
Your having the same problem as I had because of the Truncha Bug. It's too long for me to explain and better minds have already done a great job on making a guide for it. READ&nbsp;IT&nbsp;FROM&nbsp;THE&nbsp;VERY&nbsp;BEGINNING,&nbsp;WORD&nbsp;FOR&nbsp;WORD. Here's the link:<br /> <a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=173713" rel="nofollow">gbatemp.net/index.php</a><br /> <br /> I'm at the point where I've backed up all my games on an external harddrive and play them right from the harddrive. It took me a lot of research to get to this point and that link is where nearly 95% of that knowledge came from.&nbsp;Have fun. :)<br />
@ColdForge, so what i have to do is to download the truncha bug and copy it to my sd card then plug it into my wii? its not clear enough on the page &gt;.&lt;
&nbsp;The link is very helpful! Everyone should read (or at least skim) the guide before doing any wii hacking except for maybe homebrew channel and homebrew brower.
when i get to install the cios, i can move left and right to select the ios, but when i press &quot;A&quot; the remote disconnects. i am running 4.2U <br /> <br /> thanks<br />
I'm having a little trouble with the 2.0 installer. I think&nbsp;I've got everything installed correctly, I used the network option so all patches were applied ect. But I can't find the RunBackup channel anywhere on my Wii. I'm on 4.2E<br /> Help? :-(
Okay, so a step by step of what I'm doing once I've run the cIOS36 rev 14...<br /> <br /> 1. I'm taken to a navigation page saying the following:<br /> <br /> [+] Select IOS version to use during installation:<br /> &lt;IOS249&gt; (My Wii freezes if I choose any option other than &lt; Do Not Reload IOS &gt; or &lt; IOS254 &gt;)<br /> <br /> I get the disclaimer, to which I agree.<br /> <br /> I select the WAD installation option as I seem to get further with that than I do with the Internet Option...<br /> <br /> Everything goes fine except:<br /> [+]&nbsp;Installing Custom IOS, please wait...<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&gt;&gt; Install Error! (ret = -2011)<br /> <br /> Then below that it says:<br /> [+] Finishing Installation, please wait... OK!<br /> Press any button to restart...<br /> <br /> <br /> Then I press a button on the Wii remote and I'm sent back to the Wii Menu with nothing changed. I've never done this before so I don't have a clue whats going wrong!<br /> Any help would be greatly appriciated<br /> Thank you :-)
i keep getting Error -2011 just as soon as the installer gets to Istalling Custom IOS. help please?
ima360 - I'm having this 2011 error too and I tried scrolling through the two answers from Nlgdaman and nick999 but it's not black and white enough for me :( Are you having any luck on the matter?
same here!
We both suck ! Is thundaboy1047 ever going to provide a solution for us, directly?
i hope so........
He has.&nbsp; Go back to the beginning of the instructable and read.&nbsp; He posted a like to a place that will help with this problem.
Me too... nick999's and Nlgdaman's comments didn't help me either.
I had the same Issue, but i used this link, the &quot;Wii Fix&quot; directtions(note read the steps and do not follow the video only for the ISO downgrader section).<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?s=572be6275e9d6c80bf00c2b65e5f85c1&amp;showtopic=112945">http://gbatemp.net/index.php?s=572be6275e9d6c80bf00c2b65e5f85c1&amp;showtopic=112945</a><br/>
Had the same issue - follow the instructions at <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-faqs-guides-tutorials-only/16145-how-get-homebrew-channel-virgin-4-0-wii.html">http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-faqs-guides-tutorials-only/16145-how-get-homebrew-channel-virgin-4-0-wii.html</a> and you'll be all set.<br/>
i had something similar i got error -1017, couldn't figure it out. there is a app called anytitle deleter which made mine work, i deleted under &quot;system title&quot; i think, on the anytitle deleter the ios249 and it worked. if something doesn't go right, not my fault. but worked for me.<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://wiibrew.org/wiki/AnyTitle_Deleter">http://wiibrew.org/wiki/AnyTitle_Deleter</a><br/>

My problem was this:&nbsp;I&nbsp;would launch wad manager, select ios36 and the try to install. Gives me some kind of error.. i believe it is the same 2011 error, or at least a 4 digit number close to that.<br /> <br /> What I&nbsp;am going to try to do when the G/F is done with the tv that the wii is on:<br /> <br /> 1. I went here: http://code.google.com/p/wiicoverflow/<br /> 2. I downloaded CoverFloader1.2.wad and placed it with the other coverfloader wad on my SD&nbsp;disk.<br /> 3. When the tv is available, i am going to see if the new version of coverfloader v1.2 will function when trying to install.<br /> <br /> If you want to go ahead and try this before I&nbsp;get a chance, be my guest. Otherwise, give me at least 5-6 hours to try it out and finish this instructable. I WILL post any positive or negative results using the newer version.<br />
oh, btw my wii came preloaded with wii menu 4.2 (4.2U to be exact) ... trying to give as much info as possible.<br />
So...I was able to install the Homebrew Channel using bannerbomb, but then I was using the old walkthru and managed to install cIOS36 rev7...now I&nbsp;can NOT install anything from the Homebrew channel anymore. I get the black screen and disconnected remote, etc. I can't downgrade the cIOS, can't install WADManager, or anything. What the heck do I&nbsp;do now?<br /> <br /> I am on 4.2, btw.<br />
Did you install bootmii and make a backup of your OS&nbsp;in the last most stable condition?&nbsp;If not, your better off restoring your wii and starting from scratch. If so, just restore the OS with bootmii and you should be fine.<br />
No, I didn't install Bootmii or make a backup. I missed that somehow. How do I restore the wii? I'm fine with starting over....<br />
Goto the last part of Wii Settings and Press Reformat Wii System Memory. After doing that, use HackMii as through Bannerbomb and be sure to install all three things! (HomeBrew, DVDx, and BootMii) After that, FIRST thing you should do is make a backup using BootMii on an SD card. I back mine up every time I'm going to make any software changes and I store the back-up on my PC, this way, I can restore back to any point if I make a mistake in the chain of changes.
