4.3 003 error wiis must install cIOS80-v6174.zip
. If you updated from 4.2 to 4.3 and received this 003 error, thiis guide should work for you.
Method #1 Mario Kart Channel Install
This guide will fix the 003 error, only if ios36 is patched with the trucha bug.
This would typically require cIOSCORP 3.x to be installed prior to system update
If you where loading backups from the disk channel, you may have cIOSCORP
Give it a try, best of luck.
This will install cIOS70-v6174-v3.6.wad
From cIOSCORP 3.6, which will fix your 003 error
13 confirmed recoveries
Patched ios36, from cIOSCORP 3.x or other method
Possibly ios250 (probably not required)
Mario Kart iso- unscrubbed, in region
Must Not Have Installed Mario Kart Channel
to the location of your Mario
-Run MakeKeyBin.exe, type 42, click generate
Click load ISO, select Mario Kart iso
Double click Partition 2- INSTALLER
Right click RevoKartNR.wad
- drag Mario-Kart.iso onto IOSPatcher.exe, type 36 and hit enter, ios250 should also work. If 36 fails, try 250
-Use wii Bootme and set the iso to autoboot
-Burn the Mario-Kart.iso
Use good media, like verbatim dvd -r. Burn it slowly, with imgburn
-With a gc-controller in port 4, boot the wii with disk removed, do savemiifrii to the recovery menu. Hold all 4 directions down on the d-pad, while holding power the wii and keep holding the d-pad down. You should see a black screen with 4.2u/e/j. From here you can autoboot many in region games.
-Insert the Mario-Kart disk, let it boot- be patient.
-If it fails to boot, use Wii Bootme to patch the iso to auto, then try again.
-Once the game boots, click on settings, mario kart channel- Install
-If you get error 003, you don#t have a trucha ios36 and this will not work for you.
-Be sure you patched the iso to 36, or 250.
If you already have the Mario Kart Channel installed, this will not work. You can try to duplicate the process with other games that install channels- such as wii fit (ios33), wii fit plus (ios53), Rabids Go Home (ios33), perhaps wii speak. The game must run on an ios that is patched.
If you do fix your wii, be very happy someone installed cIOSCORP on it.
This technique could also be utilized to fix other banner type bricks when other options fail.
Method #2 Game ISO mod and swap
Example Method- Castlevania Judgment -using cios36
Functional RM via savmii/savmiifrii (gc-controller)
Ios36 must have the fakesign bug, aka trucha bug- probably from cIOSCORP
You will need a modchip, preconfigured to autoboot, region free enabled
Castlevania Judgment, unscrubbed iso- in your region
(tested with ntsc-u version)
Extract to the location of Castlevania Judgment iso.
-Use wii Bootme, set the iso to autoboot
-Burn Castlevania Judgment iso, burn it good and proper
-Run MakeKeyBin.exe, type 42, click generate
Click load ISO, select Castlevania Judgment iso
Double click Partition 1- data
Right click on main.dol
main.dol name will not change
-Use wii Bootme, set the patched iso to autoboot
-Burn the patched Castlevania Judgment iso, burn it good and proper
-Boot the wii and load the Recovery Menu via savemii/savemiifrii.
You should see a black screen with your system menu version #
-Insert your Castlevania Judgment disk, it should boot
Let the game load to the intro movie, eject the disk
you will see "error please insert Castlevania Judgment disk"
-Insert you patched Castlevania Judgment disk
The intro movie plays again, goto the main game menu
Push "Home" on the wiimote and click "restart"
-Wadmanager 1.4 will load,
push A to install/uninstall wads, or
push B to exit to HBC
-Now fix your wii, You can use ios36 in wadmanager
On 003 Kor wii- this strongly suggests the presence of cIOSCORP, it is likely that all game ios are patched, and many games will work with this method. For the game to work, it must restart to the health screen not the main game menu. Post your results.
Method #3 Indiana PWNS
Users who installed Indiana Pwns
prior to the 003 brick can recover by autobooting Lego Indiana Jones and loading wadmanager using ios250, then install cIOS70-v6174-v3.6.wad.
Note: This is also true for users who install Yo-Gi-Vah or Yo-Gi-OWNED
Method #4 Nand Reprogramming
Users who have their nand keys or made a bootmii backup prior to their brick can use that nand backup to have their nand reprogrammed. If you do not have your nand keys or a boobtmii nand backup, you can not reprogram your nand. If you have this, you can reprogram the nand yourself but the precess is complex. Bad-Ad84, Deadlyfoez, and streamlinehd can do the job for you, for less than you should do it yourself.
