cIOS issues (4.0E)
I have a problem of sorts.
I used to have the Homebrew Channel on my Wii on a lower firmware, but when it came to update to 4.0 I deleted it, not knowing I couldn't re-install it.
But I descovered the new method and I was installing Homebrew Channel on my 4.0 system, and in my absent mindedness I removed my cIOS thinking it would also need updating.
I've tried everything to get it back, but I can't install it anymore.
And I need it for the USB Loader to work.
I've tried all the "4.0 virgin" methods, thinking it would work, but I can't get it to load.
I do have a Wiinja chip to hand, although I never fitted it, as as soon as I purchased it I descovered the Twilight Hack.
but if I can use that to boot a downgrade disc or something I will.
PS. I d have Homebrew Channel installed, but none of the cIOS apps work properly.
The error is specific to Installing Ticket:
[+] Adding Custom IOS, please wait...
>> Installing ticket... ERROR! (ret = -2011)
But the (ret = -XXXX) varies with the installation programs.
u can install homebrew channel on 4.0 using the bootmii installer.......just google it. after u install hbc...run ios downgrader.then u can reinstall cios

I still have the HBC installed, and I know how to re-install it.

And unfortunately, most of the reasons I use Homebrew on my Wii needs a cIOS of some kind.
For example, my disc drive is temperamental, so I want to install all my games on a HDD, which needs the cIOS-249 (or 222), if memory serves me.
But I can't install any.
wait i can reinstall ios with the with the ios downgrader cause i'm having trouble with the same problem and i'm on 4.0u
assuming i understood this right......u use ios downgrader which will allow you to install wads and cios on fw 4.0.....from there u can do pretty much wutever u want like downgrade to 3.2

I have a partial revelation.
But it doesn't help me in the slightest, although it may give a reader an idea for me to try.
I have no cIOS 249, at all.
I used a cIOS manager to try and install a cIOS and 249 isn't even an option.
I really need help here.
I have some ideas, if anyone else has any info that's being overshadowed by the current methods.
I do have a mod-chip, although not installed, but it wouldn't take me long.
I already have the Homebrew channel installed and working, just unable to install tickets for wads.
I guess what I'm asking is, is there a disc based method of forcing a downgrade, bypassing the usual wad/ticket installation?
Because it seems there are a few people unable to install anything because of the ticket errors.
If so, could someone tell me please.
u need to downgrade ios35.........that should solve ur problems
