    Mod method worked, now doesnt... anyone got a idea?

    Hi,

    Ok, so a little bout me so u dont think i've never done a wii before.

    I was right into the modding of 4.2 wii's and modded many for people around my city. I have Super Mario Galaxy2, as I kept modding as 4.2 while the 4.3 internet update was out but no mod was available.

    Now I stopped modding and I taught my friend how to do it so he could continue to help anyone who needed help. He has done several 4.3 wii's.

    So I go to his place, and i asked him to prepare the 2 sd cards for me and I bought Indiana Jones for the 4.3 mod. a few of my friends bought new wii's and had the 4.3 but they dont live close to my other friend so I said i'd help him out.

    Ok, so we take a new black wii out of the box, which was 4.3u, then we used My 2 sd cards, played indiana jones for a few mins, copied the save over, installed homebrew channel, changed sd cards, ran MMM, and did priiloader.

    All was fine and dandy, everything worked fine.

    So i bring the cards to my place, my friends come by with their wii's, and i use my 2 sd cards, (very well labelled for any confusion issues), and i install the homebrew channel as normal, then i get this on the second card, on all 3 of their wii's.

    Here is the message

    It prepares downgrade of IOS15 using V523 to downgrade to v257
    could not open IOS15-64-v523 says not found in sd:/
    same for IOS15-64-v257

    then goes to Step 1: Set the version to 0
    installing ticket
    Downgrading TMD\Setting the revision to 0...
    Error: ES_AddTitleStart (-1035)
    Error setting version to 0
    Error (-1035): Downgrading

    Press any button to continue



    I didnt change a single thing from the last wii I did, to this wii. The sd cards, I even tried copying them to the computer, and back to another sd card incase it was flawed.
    I tried running PimpmyWii, with minimal hack, then runing the test for errors.

    Also how come it is looking in the root and not in the wad folder where they are?? I didnt change anything around so i am lost lol

    Before doing the Mod, I ran the md5summer and everything, was fine on the card and i pointed it to the ModPack-AnyWii.md5.

    Keep in mind, he's done many wii's with the same 2 sd cards, copied them for me, and we used the same ones when I modded my friends wii's. So now i've got 3 semi modded wii's

    lol please help.

    Sorry for the long story but I just wanted to make sure that you understood where I was coming from, and not that I just started doing wii's and have no idea on anything. I just dont know whats going wrong, and he's never seen that error also and wasnt much help unfortunately.

    Thanks.

    That i understand, i'll try it soon but nothings changed, he's done around say 20 wii's 4.3 with the same setup.
    I try it once, and fail.
    but nothing at all changed, direct copy of his cards.4

    I have all the files, but they are in the wad folder, like we've always had it.

    This is my first time with MMM, i normally did everything manually so not sure how to fix those errors, i'm looking

    hi,

    That is the guide, or same steps I am following. I got 2 out of the 3 wii's working.
    I had to install the CIOS 236 then do manually all of the ios's instead of MMM.

    I'm trying to do the same to this wii, and i get the stack dump error like mad. I now re-installed HBC, so i'll try that. If not i'll update to 4.3 again, and retry.
