So for the last months I have been trying to install Waninkoko USB Loader on my friend’s wii with firmware 4.0u. A few months back I installed the wad installer on his wii so he can install VC games. Then he updated to 4.0u like a fool when I told him not to. So after some time had passed I was searching and searching for a way around the 4.0u block of the twilight hack.
I am sure you all know now that you can get around it if you have a modchip and use cfwprophet’s method. I was able to install Waninkoko USB Loader .wad successfully as a channel on the wii with firmware 4.0u. It booted without a problem but the loader prompted me to install cios v9 which I couldn’t install because the HBC was not installed before the 4.0u update.
So I contacted my good pal cfwprophet to see if he could help me out with this and he was able to dump cios v9 to a .wad and it worked like a charm. I was able to run the USB Loader flawlessly. So I thought I would share this story with the forum. If you have the wad installer installed and have firmware 4.0u try this it works great thanks again cfwprophet. Labontecar43.
Update: well after some thinking I was trying to find a HBC.wad on the web to see if I could install it after I was able to install the cios v9.wad. that I got from cfwprophet. I found a few but they didn’t work so I took my wii and used Waninkoko WAD-Creator_v1 and successfully dumped the the HBC to a .wad and placed it in my friends wii and holy ---- it worked. for all of this to work The cios v9.wad must be installed enjoy.
