There always has to be one idiot that defies "idiot proof"!
Hello. And yes I am that idiot. I tried in so many ways to read up and handle it myself with less than stellar results... I'll start by saying I have no idea how badly or if I've screwed myself over somehow. All I know is your tutorial seems so simple and gets such good results for so many. Now to my issue...
I'm running version 4.0U. Wii serial is LU50734073. And finally I had installed homebrew using the bannerbomb method and somehow in my "inifinite" wisdom....I managed to get myself to IOS61 v19.26 according to what the homebrew channel displays.
I have been able to get wiigator's 0.3 backup launcher loaded but receive something like "error 324 - no cIOS" when attempting to load a game. I tried numerous ways to fix that, including getting various media. (Maxell, Playo, Ativa - all DvD-Rs) By the way I've also received all manner of cIOS installer and wad manager errors along the way.
Finally I decided to start all over and found your amazing post. Unfortunately I get error "ret = -1035" when using the first WAD manager in your pack to install IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad. And if I try the next step I get a black frozen screen. My thinking is that seems to indicate I can't have any mere media issue, but I of course could be wrong. So am I totally screwed? Are you able to help with this? I officially throw in the towel on my do-it-yourself attempts, and you seem both very intelligent and very helpful. Thank you TREMENDOUSLY in advance!
**I fixed it myself! I didn't have a cIOS installed because I couldn't get the downgrader to work It gave me the "pirate" message even though I've never pirated a thing! But I finally discovered I had to use shared2clean and start over. That got me all fixed up! Thanks anyways!!

Hi, I installed that shop patch thing. (Said yes to the first 2 options, and no to the last).
And as soon as it completed installing, the installer just didn't respond to my controler (It said like, ''Press any button to go to the Wii menu''). I restarted my wii and now, everytime I go to HBC, and press ''Begin'' it wont start HBC o.o (I get a black screen). I installed starlight so. I'm actually not sure if this is a brick or just an corruption. ( have Version 3.2E and I followed the whole guide correctly, so I don't know why I got this problem) And also everytime I click begin on HBC channel, my Wii controler keeps disconecting. Though me other channels work just fine and I can still play my official games. So I guess it's file corruption of HBC and not a brick. (Before the shop thing, everything worked perfectly, the downgrader, starlight, Wadmanager) So could anyone help me fix this problem? (I made a backup of my Wii maybe I can do something with that?)
Thanks a bunch in advance :3.
(I have to mention that I had to seperatly put the files in the folder that you gave us, into my ''apps'' map etc. Though I left the00000001 folder out of the whole deal, since I though that it doesn't have anything to do with wad files, I already had HBC and I thought the 00000001 was for Twilight Hack, I used softmod to get HBC. I dunno if I have this problem because I left out the 00000001 folder.)

as long as you use iso files you should be fine. i just download unrar and burn using img burner, i find thats the best software to use. im not sure if i can give site names for dowloading so i suggest you look about. and i dont get no menu for gamma i think its normal i done a few now and all the same. so what your looking for really is a wii torrent or wii iso site.

there are some gamma channels that do that. hold down 1 when opening Gamma channel, and after holding for a while a menu will pop up.
