Hey everyone. I am new to the Wii Homebrew scene. My Wii DVD drive recently broke, and I am attempting to install a USB loader program. I have read a multitude of guides, and have ran into several walls as far as successful installation is concerned. At the point I am at now, I am simply overwhelmed. I need some help clarifying what my problem actually is, and what I should do next/what guide I should follow.
Here is the story so far:
My Wii is 4.0u. Got the Homebrew Channel on the Wii for the first time 5 days ago.
1. To my understanding, I need to use WAD manager to install things. There are several packages across the web. I place those on my clean SD card. No matter which package I use (I have tried USB Loader GX, amongst others), my Wii freezes when I attempt to load IOS 2049. When I try to load another IOS in order to install WAD files, I end up getting ERROR (ret = -2011)
2. To my understanding, I now need to use Trucha Bug Restorer. When I use this (loading the necessary files from either my SD card or the internet), I end up getting error 1035.
Now I have hit a brick wall. There isn't a clear answer on what I should do next. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
