I tried but failed to downgrade IOS15 (v1032) if all Korea IOSes (41,43,45,46,48,53)
existed with the latest version.
you'll be very kind if u could upload the TBR 1.14 file to medifare, as the link in thread #1 is not accessible, off-shore.
Following the instructions in the OP:
Press A to start the install...
ES_AddTitleStart returned: -2011
You need to use an IOS with trucha bug.
That's what the IOS15 downgrade is good for...
IOS36 installation failed.
Press any button to exit...
Attempting to downgrade IOS15:
Step 1: Set the revision to 0
Step 2: Install IOS with low revision
Preparations complete, press A to start step 1...
Setting the revision to 0...
Error: ES_AddTitleFinish returned -1017
Error: Could not set the revision to 0
Press any button to exit...
Could someone help me with this? I found 1.13 and this version is giving me the same problem with downgrading IOS15. Since this one says it will work for 4.3 outright, I thought it would make a difference, but I'm missing something.
1. Is it just me, or does this thing need to exploit the trucha bug so that it can install the trucha bug?
2. I'm using Homebrew Channel 1.0.8 with a 4.3 system update from Metroid: Other M installed on top of a previous 4.3 update from New Super Mario Bros. Wii. The Mario one didn't seem to affect anything, but the Metroid one deleted my Homebrew Channel and I needed to reinstall it using the SmashStack exploit. My system is NTSC.
3. My main goal is to be able to use Action Replay codes with a GameCube game. I can't do that unless I install a special AR loader, and for that to work, I need to install a previous version of MIOS that doesn't break AR usage, which is impossible to install without the trucha bug.
did you use the 4.3 guide from this site? you should have ended up with a working set up, and fakesigned ios36 already
you can have a look on your ios by using syscheck. How to post a syscheck: Instructions here
if your wii is properly hooked up to the internet you can use Dopmii to update your mios.
with the codes you are on your own, as you won't get support on cheat stuff on this site
Thanks for the syscheck tip, vinatec. Everything was listed as stub or no patches except:
IOS250 (rev 65535): Trucha Bug, ES Identify, NAND Access, USB 2.0
IOS254 (rev 65281): BootMii
So, assuming that 250 lets me go all willynilly if the homebrew apps support it, I had TBR 1.14 load IOS250 and sure enough, it let me downgrade IOS15, patch IOS36 with the downgraded IOS15 and then restore IOS15.
Then I downloaded Waninkoko's CIOS updater rv17 to patch IOS249, which is said to be needed for soft-modded Wiis.
I still need help, though. This is going to be a little off-topic. The AR loader program I'm trying to use comes with this MIOS updater app. There's two of them, one of them says "This is not a valid Wii application" when I try to load it in Homebrew Channel and the other just goes to a black screen and needing a power button hold down. I downloaded DOP-mii from the link you posted and then I tried the version at wiibrew.org. Both times after I ran them, my wii remote would turn off and they wouldn't sync. If I have a GC controller attached, pushing the A button gives me this "Exception (DSI) occurred!" screen: http://img59.imageshack.us/img59/8444/dsim.png
So, I'm a little closer to where I need to be, but denied once again by mysterious unknown forces. Help please?
EDIT: Nevermind. I don't really understand the logistics of it, but I somehow got it working. I went back to TBR and instead of using 250, I used the new IOS249 that I installed with CIOS and I repatched IOS36. DOP-Mii still gives that obnoxious error and that not a Wii application program is the same, but the other alternative app allowed me to downgrade to MIOS v4 and the ARLoader is working! Rock and roll! Aroooooooo!
