    That's your problem

    IOS downgrader connects to the internet to download the most up to date files


    Had you made your "own" thread in the correct forum about your problem - your problem would have been sorted sooner !
    Have you used the search function ? used the Tutorial section ?

    Did you know you can donate to help the running of this forum ?

    I tried that reformatting my SD card, too. And jqwest, my downgrade seems to have been a superficial one. Not all of the IOSs were properly downgraded, so I couldn't even install Starfall and use other apps.

    Since that was the main problem, I went ahead with a manual offline downgrade. I managed to find the wads and installed them all manually. Everything worked perfectly after that. Sorry my Wii was being so dumb; I haven't heard of anyone else's Wii acting this way on any forums. And sorry for my dumb ass for not implementing my solution earlier lol.

    Much thanks to this community though for being supportive and helpful, even if you guys couldn't solve my problem per se. MUCH friendlier than the place I got the instructions for offline downgrading, that's for sure.

    And for future reference, if anyone in the future has a stupid non-compliant Wii also and encounters similar problems or needs to do a simple and quick offline downgrade to 3.2U, I have all the files needed. Just ask!

    Can be done from any version of system menu, 3.1X, 3.4X, whatever. Mine was from a half-done 3.2U.

    Assuming you already have Homebrew Channel and you have all of the following IOSs in the wad folder of your SD card, run Wad Manager 1.3 and install:

    1a - IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad

    Run Custom Wad Manager and install:

    1b - cIOS249-v7.wad or cios_fix (the former didn't work for me)

    Run Wad Manager 1.3 again and install (in this order.. MAKE SURE THEY'RE IN THIS ORDER OR IT WILL BRICK YOUR WII):

    1c - IOS9-64-v516.wad
    1d - IOS17-64-v512.wad
    1e - IOS20-64-v12.wad
    1f - IOS21-64-v514.wad
    1g - IOS28-64-v1288.wad
    1h - IOS31-64-v1040.wad
    1i - IOS33-64-v1040.wad
    1j - IOS34-64-v1039.wad
    1k - IOS35-64-v1040.wad
    1l - IOS36-64-v1042.wad

    2a - IOS30-64-v1040.wad
    2b - SystemMenu-v289.wad (FOR NTSC ONLY)

    OR

    2b - SystemMenu-v290.wad (FOR PAL ONLY)

    OR

    2b - SystemMenu-v288.wad (FOR JAP ONLY)

    Then you're at 3.2! Credit for this guide goes to KiiWii of the GBAtemp.net forums

    SystemMenu_289 is for USA console
    SystemMenu_288 is for Japan console
