    Why do you want to undo everything if your already on 4.1 firmware?

    It installs v0.3

    Try using a diffrent SD card. If you can try a NON-SDHC SD Card.

    Please start a new thread this has nothing to do with this guide.

    So I've followed your guide and everything works perfectly. Thank you for making this guide!

    I do have one thing to ask though. I enabled gamecube backups following your guide, but I have a question about it. Can neogamma switch discs from a multi-iso disc? For example, I want to play Tales of Symphonia, but since it's two discs, I would have to switch discs mid-game. If it's not possible, is there another way I can run it?

    Thanks Larry!

    How many times do i have to say if you have a specific game questions to ask it in a new thread. I don't want this thread being garbaged with post that have relevance to the guide and issues with instillation of the softmod.

    Larry a sugestion in my point of view having tried both programs I would recommendo to use USB Loader GX, it has far better UI and its nicer I think.

    also updates directly from WAD and downloads all Cover,etc.

    or what advantages can you find from NeoGamma that USB Loader GX does not have?

    I have both links to both USB Loaders. So please leave your comments about which one is best out of the thread. The thread doesn't need to become a which USB Loader is best thread.

    So please keep your questions and replies to the softmod itself and issues you might have installing the softmod.

    I'm getting ready to do a friend's Wii, and I noticed another guide that's pretty much the same as yours, except at the end it says to use wad manager to install:

    IOS38-64-v3610
    IOS50-64-v4889
    IOS53-64-v5149
    IOS55-64-v5149

    I noticed your guide doesn't have this, and was just wondering A) If it's necessary and B) What do they do, as in what purpose do they serve?

    I want to install hermes 222/223 for the purpose of playing rockband. ( if there is a different way to play the games, i would appreciate any advice) is the 222 ios in your mod pack or do i have to dl it some where. ( larry i have came across 1 of your previous posts on where to find this guide but the links to dl the files are dead.)

    hi, let me start be saying im complete new to the wii homebrew and i followed this guide and everything went great, so thank you so much, however there is one thing i would like to know, the system works great but i dont quite like this loader as there is only one line showing the game title and it takes a long time to find your game if you a lot of games in the usb drive like i do, after a bit of reserch i found this great loader called coverfloader, it does install fine but every single game crash before it loaded, does it have anything to do with the cios im using? is it possible to add other loaders? id so how do i go about it? thank yo uso much in advance.

    I was also wondering, I used your previous 4.0-4.1 guide on my own Wii, so if these wads are important would it still be okay to install them? Or would it be unnecessary? Thanks for your help...

    I don't cover hermes 222/223 in this guide. Please try to find the information yourself or start a new thread. I don't need newbies getting confused about hermes 222/223 talk.

    READ THE GUIDE! I said to use 1 of the other guides for USB Loader instillation. That as well means ask your questions in that guide link not this one. Or start a new thread in the main forum.

    I didn't include any extra IOS versions of an IOS WAD because you can install and patch the newest versions with DOP-IOS.

    Technically if you wanted to you could patch IOS60 with DOP-IOS and skip the IOS60Patch.wad file. But since not all will use Trucha Bug I left DOP-IOS as optional.

    It actually says not to downgrade any IOS after you perform the guide.

    It is safe to downgrade IOS15 on those systems. Just restore it after.

    As the guide says I don't know if cMIOS can be instaled on those types of Serial systems. However DOP-IOS can be used as long as you install and patch the latest versions of the IOS (do not downgrade them).
