    error: could not set the revision to 0
    downgrade failed

    Give me a second to update the SOFTMOD PACK. I am going to include a different Tucha Bug Restorer.

    thanks for the fast reply.

    I'm using the same SD card that I used on my 4.1U system. I just removed all of the 4.1 files and added the files from the 4.2 softmod pack. I'm using the same wads I got using Nus during the 4.1 mod. they are named the same so I figured they would work.
    these are the same from the 4.1 guide
    IOS15-64-v257.wad
    IOS15-64-v266.wad
    IOS36-64-v3094.wad


    My sd card root looks exactly how your picture shows it to.

    I updated the guide with a updated Trucha Bug Restorer. Plus there are new updated WAD files that need to be downloaded.

    So refresh the page.

    Delete every thing off your SD Card

    Redownload the softmod pack and extract the new stuff to your SD card.

    Redownload the proper IOS.WAD files using NUS.

    Then try the guide again. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    When I get to the point of ANY TITLE DELETER I do not have the following IOS to delete;

    IOS 222
    IOS 223

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Did you use the + and - buttons to check ALL the pages?

    Are you on 4.2 firmware?

    As far as I know IOS222/223/249/250 should have stubs installed when updated to 4.2 firmware. So if your on 4.2 firmware I would assume you should have them in the System Titles somewhere.

    Are you for sure on firmware 4.2?

    As per your 4.2 guide,

    "After you have finished downloading the above files you will see NUS has created 4 folders. Each folder will contain a WAD file you need to transfer to the root of the SD Card.

    Transfer the following WAD files to the root of the SD Card...

    IOS15-64-v257.wad
    IOS15-64-v523.wad
    IOS36-64-v3351.wad "

    But on the print screen you have 4 WAD files.
    The fourth one being: 1892 KB with NO NAME.

    Would it be (just like the 4.1 guide)
    IOS38-64-v3610.wad ??

    Is this an oversight on the 4.2 guide (3 WAD vs. 4 WAD)

    You only need the 3 files.

    If they are not there then I guess make sure you delete the ones that are then finish the guide.

    You don't need it in the version I have uploaded. This is a 4.2 firmware guide people. So expect it to be different then the 4.1 firmware guide.

    I made it to the step below,when i " Select to Install Custom IOS 222 and select IOS38 merged with IOS37"

    i in fact got an error about it not being able to initalize. so i went back and tried it a couple more times, now all it does is lock up on "initializing network"

    ive had to turn the unit off and back on to try again the last couple times

    any idea?

    Cheers J

    Hermes' IOS 222/223:

    Launch the HBC and load the cIOS 222 installer.
    Press A at the warning screen.
    Select IOS249 to perform the install with D-pad left/right and push A
    Select to Install Custom IOS 222 and select IOS38 merged with IOS37.
    Make sure you get installation complete. If you do not and get an error then rerun this step again.

    Did you uninstall IOS222 and IOS223 with any title deleter?

    Also make sure the Wii can connect to the Internet.

    Just registered an account to say THANK YOU.

    This guide worked flawlesly. I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to set up neogamme r7. I already had bannerbomb, but figure a clean SD card wipe + this guide couldn't hurt. And it didn't!!!

    Thank you for verifying that the guide works.

    There have been over 250 downloads of the softmod files already. Only a few have seemed to have issues. I think it would be reassuring to others wanting to perform this guide, if others verified that the guide did work.
