Been at this for two whole days and don't seem to be getting anywhere. My aim is to be able to load backups. That's all - ie I dump my original Wii disc to an ISO, burn that onto a DVD-R and load and run it. Now my 'first generation' Wii has on it 4.0E, but I can't install programs like Backup Loader without getting assorted ticket errors such as -1035 and -2011. Have spent hours downgrading my Wii, trying all kinds of tutorials, etc but no luck at all. So, is there a simpler way to load backups, or is it a case of waiting a while for the very experienced coders to find easier ways to install run programs like Backup Loader on 4.0E Wii's? Or will it never be possible without first downgrading the Wii ? Thank you.
