    I need a 3.2E System Menu WAD to upgrade a 3.1 Wii -Please read-

    A guy whose WiiKey died brought his system over to me to fix, i don't have wireless internet and I don't really know how to extract a system menu wad myself since it seems a tad too complex from what I've seen.

    His system is at 3.1E atm, I installed HBC and patched IOS36 to cIOS36-rev10, tested the USB Loader and it seems to work fine.
    The guy however has small kids and so they don't mess anything up I want to install 3.2E and Starfall for him(I don't feel comfortable with Preloader, never used it and from what I've read about it, I just don't feel comfortable with it for some reason).


    It seems because of the dead WiiKey the system can NOT play Backups from discs, even with cIOS36 rev10 installed I get code dumps from any disc based game I try running with Gamma Loader/GeckoOS, tried including some disc with supposedly 3.2E on it I downloaded ages ago(dont have the ISO anymore, will make one if needed)
    If the games are on a HDD/Flash Drive they appear to work fine though, so cIOS36 rev10 works fine, the dead Wii seems to prevent the drive from reading backups for some reason.


    So now I want to upgrade this guy to 3.2E but I'm not sure how to do it once I get the 3.2E System Menu wad, do I just install that using the WAD Manager or should I use that IOS Downgrader thing to do it? I've never done this before since my Wii was on 3.2E already when i softhacked it.

    And the Wiikey is of no use, it's completely dead so I can't just upgrade through a game and as I said, it only reads original discs now, but no pirated ones, too bad we don't have any original games with 3.2 on them and I don't think there's a place to rent Wii games in my country.

    Can you guys link me to a 3.2E(v290) System Menu wad and tell me how to properly install it so i don't fuck this guy's wii up, again i got no internet on the wii.

    or maybe I shouldn't bother upgrading to 3.2E
    it's not like his kids could upgrade by accident to a US firmware or 4.0 when the Wii doesn't read "backups" no matter what o_O
    But if anyone has the wad, please post it cause i'm going to need it for another wii soon

    Probably too late now, but in the first instance I'd recommend installing BootMii & dumping the NAND of the Wii in its current (ie, working) state. That way if anything goes wrong you can always come back to this point

    The 3.2E update can be found inside an ISO posted at HackMii (links don't work any more, but check comment #21 for a rapidshare mirror:
    Semi-brick fix discs for all three regions (updated)

    Use WiiScrubber (GBAtemp.net :: Downloads :: Other useful tools :: Wiiscrubber 1.40 Kit with multiloader, requires key.bin a.k.a. common-key.bin) to extract IOS30-64-v1040.wad & SystemMenu-v290.wad

    Very important that you successfully install IOS30-64-v1040.wad before you even attempt to install SystemMenu-v290.wad, or brickage may occur

    Once you've installed both through your Wad Manager of choice, voila, 3.2E

    Hello new. If you stop by the intro section found here and say hi, I would be glad to share some very usefull information with you. But to start off, let me ask you why you want 3.2E?

    as for 3.2E, I'm testing Waninkoko's WAD manager for old system menus, for instance:

    -SystemMenu-v290.wad-


    Then I could run USB Loader OR USBLoaderGX, Mainly GX.
    Trying to get them to work.
    If you could post a walkthrough, my deed would be done.

    Hello? Hellllooo?

    All of his problems would be covered in a Welcome post. He just needs some info the doesn't come from FAILTUBE or the likes.
