Unauthorized device on 4.2/4.3+: This error is found on region changed Korean wiis that have been updated to system menu 4.2/4.3+. System menu 4.2/4.3+u/e/j call a new ES Ioctlv(0x45) which has been added to system ios70/80+. This call returns a 0 on region changed Korean wiis resulting in this error. It is reported that Nintendo will not service this error. The only know fix for this error only works for wiis with cIOSCORP/DARKCORP installed, and is found in this GUIDE. This error is simple to prevent, like all modded wiis, region changed Korean wiis should never update from Nintendo higher than SM 4.1. In addition, these region changed Korean wiis should install cIOS70-v6174.zip, cIOS80-v6174.zip, and cIOS90-v6174.zip, which will prevent error 003 on region changed Korean wiis should they update to 4.2/4.3+ by mistake. DON'T UPDATE.

Title with a higher version is already installed: The cause of 1035 error is when you try to install an IOS with a lower revision over-top of an IOS with a higher revision. Most common reason people get this error is when they try to downgrade IOS15 using DOP-Mii, TBR, MMM.....any app that downgrades IOS to install a patched IOS36 (you can also get the error if your IOS36 revision is too high when it comes time to install the IOS36 with patches).
2 causes - 2 Solutions
Cause 1 - using an app like DOP-Mii, TBR, MMM that does not support the IOS revisions currently installed.
Solution - Fix it by using MMM 13.4
Cause 2 - Trying to install over an IOS with a higher version number
Solution - Fix it by using IOS236 to install with (or cIOS38 rev 17).
Update Error through waninkoko's firmware updater: Required sysversion(IOS) is not installed .Caused if System Menu ios was not previously installed.

DVD Read Error:Bad burn/media or incorrect cIOS.Update or Use Neogamma R9.If you are already using Verbatim DVD-R burned at 4x try at 2x.Also this error will persist on newer wiis, meaning that they have the new D3-2 Drive chip which cannot read backups at all.Only option for them is USB loading.
DVD Read Error:Bad burn use a better quality disc(Verbatim DVD-R) burn at 2x or 4x using imgburn.Could be a bad iso dump.
DVD Read Error:Bad burn/media.Dirty Lens use Wii Lens Cleaner.Trying to play a Dual Layer game with rev14- update to cIOS249  d2x-v6 .Some old wiis are known to have problems with dual layer games.If its a new wii then it has a d3-2 drive and you cant play disc backups.Only option is USB loading.

Q. I can't install any IOS, I keep getting an error. How do I fix this?4100:
A.Use this guide
to fakesign(trucha) ios36 then use it to install other ios or install ios249 then use 249 to install other ios.(.wads)
Title Identification Error: When using DVDs, most likely bad burn or media. As for wads, most likely an incorrectly injected wad (.dol and rom injections).Wrong Ticket-, Cert size or invalid Ticket-, Cert data
Q. I injected the .dol/rom the same way I do all my injections. What am I doing wrong?
A. You'll need to make sure the account you're using has all permissions. If you're running Vista, you may want to right click on the program and click run as administrator as well.
This installer can NOT continue!
There is no known vulnerable IOS installed on this Wii.
Please note that we will not use a fakesigned IOS Due to security reasons.
Hackmii installation failure: It is a bug installed by the Hackmii team, which prevents Hackmii running under a fakesigned ios.You will most likely get this when you are trying to install hackmii with a modified ios58 or ios61 with trucha bug or any other way.FIX
Upside down HBC problem:
Again, Hackmii team prove their dislike for pirates. This will happen when the ios HBC runs on is trucha signed(press home button in HBC and it will say in top right corner which ios it uses) .Installing a clean ios the HBC use will fix it.
