    Post Error ret = -1 / ret = -2011

    Hello

    This is my first post here and I need help...
    I been browsing and search inside and outside this forum since I got bought this Wii from someone. I dont know what modchip is in .. but i managed to do the twilight hack and get the homebrew channel installed, then i got the homebrew browser and started installing apps.

    The goal here is to run the Waninkoko's USB Loader 1.5

    But running it says ERROR CUSTOM IOS could not be loaded
    (Custom IOS = CIOS right?)
    So I put WAD Manager 1.4 on my SD card
    Launched it
    Selected IOS36
    Source : Selected Wii SD Slot
    and it says

    [+] Mounted device please wait... OK!
    [+] Retreving file list... ERROR! (ret = -1)

    And I'm stuck here.
    I tried formating my SD card and putting the files back , that didnt help
    Tried 2 different SD cards , both are <= 2GB. (plain SD no converter/adapter)

    Some other info that might help ?

    Wireless connection (confirmed working)
    SD Card 2gb
    Wii : Ver.4.0E
    IOS36 v12.22 (Homebrew channel says)

    Homebrew channel 1.0.1
    Installed apps : ftpii , dvdx 3.4, homebrew browser,
    Other things : USB Loader 1.5 and WAD Manager 1.4

    Oki i realized that WAD Manager and Custom IOS Installer is not the same =)

    But I get an error in CIOS installer v1.7 saying

    [Network]

    >> Installing ticket ... ERROR! (ret = -2011)

    [Wad installation]

    Mounting SD Card... OK
    Reading IOS36-64-v1042.wad , please wait .... ERROR! (ret = -1)


    Still stuck

    That the same error I've been getting for over a week while trying to install wads.

    Good luck
    Who are you to question why your god doesn't want me to believe in him?

    You probably don't have any CIOS installed and you mentioned that you are already at System Menu V4.0 I would suggest to use Dogeggs procedure to get the CIOS to install. Go to http://www.wiihacks.com/general-home...4-no-cios.html
    It worked for me. You can do the downgrade step even if you want. I'm sticken with 4.0 and Liken It. Thanks Dogeggs for making this possible. The key thing is that HBC must already have been installed before you went to V4.0.

    That's right. Didnt have CIOS before V4.0
    I thought it was only important to get HBC in before V4.0.

    That guide was easy and did it , now I could install the CIOS and everything is working fine!

    Thanks once again!
