Issue with 4.1 upgrader and modding tutorial
I've been following the 3.1-4.1 modding tutorial by dogeggs. Everything was going swimmingly, until I tried to install the 4.1 firmware. I get this error:
Downloading "System Menu 4.1U", please wait...
>> Downloading ticket... ERROR! (ret= -1)
I checked the errors thread and it was a pretty nonspecific one, saying maybe I'd done something wrong. So I went back over the instructions again, double checking what actions I'd taken...
Install bootmii, DVDX, HBC..check.
I missed the cIOS step and went on to the next step. Totally nervous due to all the 'definitely install IOS60-patched FIRST' warnings, I went ahead and did that..then tried to run the firmware updater to no avail.
When I realized this, I went and did the cIOS step, did the IOS60-patched install again (noticing this time that IOS249 was an option) and tried the firmware again. Still no love.
So, I know I screwed up here.. I ran the IOS60-patched install against IOS60 instead of IOS249. Is this why the firmware updater won't work? Is there something I can do to fix it?
I've searched through the forums but I haven't found anyone being an idiot in the exact same way as me. And the 'make your Wii a virgin' thread has the 4.1 updater as step #1.
My system menu is 3.3, my system boots, plays games and homebrew fine. Just can't update to get priiloader and Neogamma or any of those steps.
Thanks in advance!

Reason: typo >.>
Generally speaking, you'll see that error as relates in one of two ways. Either your SD card is missing a file (in this case, unlikely) or that's a sign of an incompatibility with your SD card. Use only full SD cards, 2gb or less and fully --- not quick --- formatted FAT32. No MicroSD w/adapter, nor SDHC. Wii-branded ones @ Wally World are $10 and made by Sandisk, an excellent choice and known to be compatible.
