Info about This Any-Region 3-Launcher SoftMod Pack:
NOTE: You will need to get at least the Twilight Hack working on your own for this:
Twilight Hack Sticky
Twilight Hack @ Wiibrew
-Menu 3.2 and below? You can use any alpha or beta1 versions of TP-hack.
-Menu 3.3 (v1 or v2)? You can use the beta1.
-Menu 3.4? you can use the new beta2; even though it deletes after reboot, you only need the One (1) run of Wad Manager, and STILL NO DOWNGRADING!!!
-The 3 Launchers Included:
...WiiGator 0.3g NeoRame Wii-IshV3 Edition w/ 002 Fix (aimed at IOS249)
...WiiGator 0.1 NiceColorEdtion mod by WiiPower with entryholder (aimed at IOS247)
-[Reminder: 0.1 backup discs need to be decrypted ("patched";), program included, but you must obtain common-key]
...SoftChip SVN r76 (selectable IOS; IOS248 included to make Rock Band Instruments work and customz)
TOTAL BLOCKS: Approx 59
-3 different-looking channels, BannerBrick Tested, region-free, NO problems,
banners were just poached, but everyone should be credited now.
-NOT my channels AT ALL, I just did the dol injections and renaming to make it make sense as best I could.
Claim credit if you're due, for sure.
-Basically, this is ALL WADS, and that's IT...for all you noobs out there this is good..in other words:
One (1) boot of TP-Hack, to do One (1) boot of WAD Manager,
then install All EIGHT* (8) wads, AND YOU'RE DONE!
(I included a DVDx wad for 247 just for you guys)
(*only 5 (FIVE) if you don't "patch"/decrypt)
NO hbc or installer programs needed at all!!!!
-NO DOWNGRADE NEEDED AT ALL!!!!
NONE!!!! EVEN ON 3.4!!!
THIS EVEN OVERWRITES VERSION 2 + 3, 100% TESTED
(IF you experience problems, Start over by first....
UNINSTALLING ALL PREVIOUS LAUNCHER/LOADER FILES AND ANY INSTANCES OF DVDX)
0) IF you have either of the newest updates, get IOS16, install it using standard wad manager (boot.dol),
and use davi92's provided "modified" wad manager (boot.mod THEN renamed to boot.dol) for EVERY step after this.
1) Boot your WAD Manager via the TP-hack, HBC, channel, or whatever you use.
2) Install wads number 1 through 8 (you have a choice on 6), and exit the program.
~6a Waninkoko Disc Dumper
3) Get back to the main menu and ENJOY!!!!
Also includes 2 different disc dumpers you can basically figure out for yourselves,
I'd recommend you use Firefox to navigate to your Wii's IP. Also, ithe wiihttpd-do will crash if you
do not have an sd card in the slot with an empty "www" folder in the root,
or if you mistakenly press A when you load the program...
...NO button presses needed for this app.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHOW YOUR APPRECIATION FOR THIS PACK, buy "The Conduit" when it comes out.
BONUS ITEM *(WITH WARNING)
cIOS_rev7 with Native Korean Disc Support - created by QLeap, packed by me, WILL overwrite your current IOS249, not recommended as it completely breaks wad installs, and must be removed using AnyTitle Deleter or the author's installer, found elsewhere.
WARNING: DO NOT INSTALL THIS IF YOU DO NOT HAVE HBC INSTALLED.
-Boot untouched Korean Discs/1:1 Backups using the newest launchers
-Trucha bug patched in
-Supposedly supports everything else rev7 supports...BUT...
-Breaks wad installs
-Other homebrew acts weird from time-to-time
-If ANY channel is clicked WHILE a Korean disc is ALREADY in drive, your system will freeze.
-Wad Manager won't install the wads? See STEP 0
-Done step 0 and still get errors?
~Remove USB stuff
~Remove GC stuff
-Launchers won't load games?
~Remove USB stuff
~Check and make sure you are using DVD-R, or DVD+R if it is booktyped "DVD-ROM"
~Do not use RW media
~Check and see if others have the same problem with that specific game
~Make sure a valid SD card is inserted (this fixes a crash in the Dumper as well) - this should no longer cause launcher problems
-note that this pack may NOT work on Korean Wii's.
-NOTE: Gamma channel gives me a minor graphical glitch if I go to it's menu without a disc inserted, no biggie though,
and it might be something I'm doing....don't give it a second thought.
"When I start a channel, it reboots the Wii...what's up?"
You are missing an IOS in the 30's, most likely 37. Install it with Wad Manager.
To first check that you actually are missing it, just run "AnyTitle Deleter"
and under system titles, see if it is there.
"Why does NFS: Undercover and others not work/give 002 error?"
This WAS an unresolved issue because it needs new the IOS55....NOT ANYMORE!
002 error should not be present on this version, except with the old 0.1nce launcher.
"How do you get Red Steel, MK:Arm, MoH:H2 to work?"
Some people have had success by patching them using "IOSPatcher 1.1" (by waninkoko?) to patch them to use IOS249 (which the launcher(s) use(s))...look elsewhere, I know this works.
"SoftChip/other channels code-dumps at times, why?"
Proceed as normal, everything is working fine...if you get problems, delete the SoftChip folder on your SD, but you may keep getting code dumps.
"Regular disc channel has started acting funky, and my regular discs are not loading?"
Just do a full power-cycle (cut power from your wii entirely for about 15 seconds).
"I have no intention of ever "patching" (decrypting) any discs; I like 1:1, so do I need ALL of this?"
*You can skip installing wads 1-3, and proceed to 4-8. Enjoy YOUR 2-launcher setup.
The Intent/GOALS of this pack are:
1) Make (basically) every single step into wad installs, for noobs and upgraded systems.
2) Have channels pointing at IOS 249 for the newer versions,
and at 247 for the older launcher,
so people can still use the decrypted (called "patched";) discs,
and the games that don't work on the new launchers at the moment.
3) Make it all work without any downgrade at all!!!!!!
4) Require NO internet connection!!!
So....enjoy all the wads!....just install them in the order they direct (1 through 8).
IOS247 is a proper copy of "cIOS fix" (aka: rev5) by ppc_gba
IOS249 is a proper copy of "cIOS249_rev7 full" by Waninkoko and Wiigator, dumped by me

I made it a point to NOT thank anyone
I thought wouldn't WANT to be thanked, so that may be the case.
I did no coding work. I just assembled the pack, renaming/repacking,
and typed up this info. I don't code, I don't bugtest,
I actually barely even play my wii, lol.
