Thread: Cannot install WAD

    Cannot install WAD

    I'm really stuck with this problem, which I would be really grateful if someone could help me out with.

    I susccessfully installed Homebrew Channel (using the PAL version of Smash Stack) and have used a few different apps. I've tried using WAD installer to install some commonly used WADs that have been confirmed to be working. The installation fails giving error (ret = -2011).
    I've also tried using WAD Manager 1.7 which just seems to crash.

    Searching around for this bug, I've found 2 posts with possible solutions.

    1: One directed me to this tutorial: Removed because link was to a guide that closed and warned not to use it!
    Going through the " Wii Fix Guide" doesn't seem to help. It tells me to install "IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad" using WAD Manager. which doesn't work. I've also tried to install it with WAD Installer, which again doesn't work.

    2: The other solution I found was this forum post:
    This tells me to downgrade to firmware 3.2. This doesn't seem like the right solution but I've tried it anyway. Using DOP-Mii I installed system menu 3.2. After doing this, WAD Installer still doesn't work and gives the same error message.

    Is anyone able to help me out with this one?
    Much obliged!

    When in Wad manager, use IOS 36, or 236, 249, 250, to install the wads.

    When I use WAD Manager and select IOS249, the next item says: "Select NAND emulator device: <Disable>"
    It then says to press A to select or Home Button to exit. However, at this point my Wii remote as unsynched itself and so I can't press any buttons. I've tried plugging in a gamecube controller, but that doesn't work either.
