First, You need to add G4RadioactiveDecay to GenericIon in your physics list,e.g

  G4RadioactiveDecay*  theRadioactiveDecay = new G4RadioactiveDecay();

  while( (*theParticleIterator)() ){
    G4ParticleDefinition* particle = theParticleIterator->value();
    G4ProcessManager* pmanager = particle->GetProcessManager();
    G4String particleName = particle->GetParticleName();

    if (particleName == "GenericIon") {
      pmanager ->AddProcess(theRadioactiveDecay);
      pmanager ->SetProcessOrdering(theRadioactiveDecay, idxPostStep);
      pmanager ->SetProcessOrdering(theRadioactiveDecay, idxAtRest);

Then any radioative isotope can be created at the UI with commands

/gun/particle ion /gun/ion Z A (charge) (excitation_energy)

if G4ParticleGun is used. Or

/gps/particle ion /gps/ion Z A (charge) (excitation_energy)

if G4GeneralParticleSource is used.

The decay of the specified isotope, as well as its daughter nucleis, will be treated by G4RadioactiveDecay.
