Thread: wad install issues

  1. #1

    A couple of questions about reinstall of IOS (was wad install issues)

    Hi, i'm running a 3.2E wii with starfall that has been downgraded from 3.4E, and I can use backup launcher without any issues.

    when trying into install a backup wad i get Error (RET =-1) now from searching I find some folk suggest installing IOS36-64-v1042.wad. I'm sorry if this is a n00bish question but do I use the custom Ios Installer or wad manager (i use 1.3)?

    also is the IOS36-64-v1042.wad the same as IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad as installed by the custome WM installer?

    make sure that the wad is in a "wad" folder on the root of your sd card. if that doesnt work make sure the data isnt corrupt (format SD card, redownload file, put into wad folder on clean SD card)

    IOS36 and IOS16 are not the same

    The files are in a folder called wad in the root of the SD Card.

    that makes sense that they are not the same

    While trying things earlier (although, I have come to a conclusion that the errot (ret = -1) may be a missing/corrupt file error.) I think I may have stuffed things up a bit. Backup loader reports IOS36 (instead of 249) as it was. I accidentally uninstalled ISO 38, 53, 55 as I tried to install them, an error was returned (sorry I forget the code) and I selected to uninstall (Big mistake). After this I installed CIOS_Installer Rev2 with the IOS37_64_v2070 wad. This installed ok, but then Wad Manager 3 would not install anything giving errors of -1017. I then removed IOS249 using anytitledeleter. This now allows me to install the wad that was giving me -1 but other wads are now giving errors of -1017. Backup Launcher has as I said earlier a lower IOS version.

    I am correct in thinking I need to go back an follow most of the tutorial on downgrading a 3.4E wii (this is what I followed orginally to install gamma.)

    By using the CIOS downgrader, Install the CIOS_fix (I have a feeling this may not be necessary and also is the CIOS_fix the same as the IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad?), then reinstall the CIOS (is it better to use the orginal or the 2nd Revision that needs the IOS37-64-2070.wad)

    would I need to install the shop ios51 again and is there any order to installing the following


    plus are these needed? and I also take they are installed via Wad Manager 1.3?

    sorry for the raft of questions, i want to be sure that i'm not going to foob my wii up any more than it is

    i have done that and now have the 324 dvd error. i been round the forum,
    reading and added the 32 v7 wad in as well for good measure.
    but when i use backuplauncher same problems beside that sometime i get eror 361, 324, 424 as well.
    i read on some other it say i should should use a specfic dvd-r. i am currently using TDK dvd-r. i assume TDK is a good make? or could this be the root of my problem?
    any advices will be grateful

    after re-reading and trying the new v7 as well i went and buy some verbatim -r disk as well, dl imgburn.

    and still no joy still getting 324 error, or disc error.
