problem downgrading from 4.0u
I've found a few tutorials on downgrading from my current 4.0u firmware (which blows) to 3.x. Serial is LU3... Everything I've tried fails at some point:
- WAD Manager 3 (1.3): initializes libfat OK, fails at reading SD card device contents (the same one it's running from): (ret = -1)
- IOS Downgrader/cIOS Downgrader: both just reboot the wii on load
- cIOS Installer 1.7: downloads and applies all patches, adds all content (15 & 16), gets to installing custom IOS, then fails: (ret = -2011). Same exact thing happens if I add an IOS36 .wad to the SD root and install from there.
Getting frustrated ... any ideas?
Done ... verified ... working ... rocks! Thank you jonathanb, and thanks to Dogeggs too ... adding this tutorial to my sig for others to find.
With this finally done, and with the NES, SNES, and Genesis emus, my Wii is now one bad-ass retro machine! Now I just need a dang classic controller ....
