Was that a typo or have you tried 1.5.
That is the method to install a wad.

wasn't a typo, but I did just finally found WAD Manager 1.5 (By waninkoko) pulls up fine in homebrew channel, I used "a" to agree, it ask was ios to use, again tried to use ios249, hit "a" and I loose conroller function and the only way to rest the Wii is to unplug it

again I have a Wii with 4.2u (this is my first Wii, bought brand new on 4/19/2010, serial lu47200xxxx)
i used bannerbomb v2 (abd61_v200.zip) - and BootMii / HackMii Installer v0.6
had to install BootMii as an ios as I did not get the "Boot2" option
other then that nothing else is done (bensides a SNES and MAME emulator running from the SD card)

dunno what happened to my post, so ill make this one less detailed
set wad manager 1.5 to ios36, read from SD, selected the iso70 file mentioned at start of thread, fail error code RET=-2011
suggestions? (also searching web)

Ok, Priiloader is now on my Wii after following a guide at: 4.2U Wii wont load many Homebrew apps
mine gave me an error at step 5 (net intifailed -116 )when trying to do the NUS download, so I instead found and different guide for Priiloader: HOWTO: Install Priiloader to help prevent system bricks if you cannot use Bootmii as boot2
downloaded a file called: "complete4_2.zip" since it had all the files needed (except the ios37 stuff for the Trucha Bug MOD, never seemed to need it, nor did it ask)
I also never used WAD Manager to patch that ios70 wad, I used Multi Mod Manager v12.8 with the listed ios70 file from this thread
basically do the steps in the afterdawn guide, using the TRB-MOD **UNTIL** you get to step 5 then just load the files off the SD card from the "complete4_2.zip" (from the other guide), finish the afterdawm guide with the rest of the files from SD card
I loaded up Priiloader v.4 just fine even checked the "hacks" menu listing, it showed them all there
edit: I guess with the files installed to the SD card, you shouldn't have to select the NUS option since I realized that is WiFi stuff and my error of "-116" could be my router (Belkin)
BTW I am a total newb to Wii hacking and Total Newb to the Wii period and its seems my stuff is still working by luck alone... I will continue to read and learn

Its difficult to advise when you have used different guides from other sites.
We have 2 good guides here.
The 116 is internet connection. the 2011 means you would require trucha bug restoring, not sure where you are at with your mod.
Don’t update to 4.2, but if you are already on 4.2, complete 4.2 guide written by Messie
Don’t update to 4.2, but if you are already on 4.2, Softmod for any 4.2 written by Shadowsonic2

I used the TBR-mod as mentioned at the after dawn forum
the basically the files mentioned from the other site is what was needed (not using that NUS method on tbr-mod)
so that would leave me with the tbr-mod done, then I could use a wad program (multi mod manager) and installed that ios70 listed here
then priiloader installed fine and worked fine
system is still alive
does that explain where I am at?
I had to do it that way because wad manager 1.5 gave me and error when trying to load the ios70 wad, guess because I didn't have the TB loop hole
honestly, not totally sure what everything did or does, but priiloader works, next step us to setup to run back ups (I guessing via USB hdd, since I found out I have the newest DVD setup as was told it would play burnt disc)

Only Site Donators Can PM Staff
We wish you the best, we don't support other site's guides/tutorials (though gba temp ain't bad, but still...) - error -116 means network error. Did you have your Wii setup for wireless internet? Wish you luck, and hope it works out for you.

I can respect supporting only this sites guides
yes wifi was setup, read that the router could make it crash at step 5, and that the TB mod was lacking (of course on newer firmware) and that the specific exploit ios249 was done away with
I was just searching google and yahoo on "4.2u priiloader" and that's were I pulled my info, maybe not the best way but it worked
thank you for the follow ups, concern, and help. I just need more time to read over this site

I did a brand new Wii as well. Messies guide did not work (the trucha restore portion) but Shadows Guide worked flawlessly. I recommend starting it (it doesn't hurt if you do steps multiple times) and following it word for word. It can be done fully offline easily which made the process a lot smoother for me.
