    I have modded my own Wii without problem. However a friend got me to do his for him, and I'm having difficulty downgrading it. He is currently running on 3.4U, and I have the Homebrew channel working fine with it, thanks to the Twilight hack. However, I can't get the downgrade working.

    Please keep in mind I did the best I could, I searched the forum for a problem similar to mine and couldn't find anything, or else I wouldn't have made this topic.

    So in the "Wii Fix Guide" in this link [ http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=112945 ]
    I've run into trouble with Step #3.
    Instead of having "IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad" as an option, all I have are

    Code:
    cios_fix.wad
    SoftChip.wad
    WAD MANAGER V3.wad
    WAD MANAGER.wad
    Wii Gator.wad
    So the only App I want to install on his Wii is the Wii Gator Backup Launcher 0.3 Gamma, for backup copies of game's he bought. That's all I can think of for now.
    Is there any other way of getting the Backup Launcher running on a 3.4U Wii?
    Has anybody had this problem before?

    Either way, this is my first post and any help is greatly appreciated.

    download IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad then put it in the WAD folder on your SD card and then run Wad Manager to install the IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad , then run custom Wad Manager to install cios_fix and vole the downgrader should work [​IMG]

    once you have IOS16 installed, you have to use the Custom Wad Manager that works over IOS16, and this time you install cIOS_fix, and NOW you do the IOS Downgrader, and the Custom IOS Downgrader to 3.2, got it? [​IMG]

    Okay, so I download IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad and then put it into the WAD folder on my SD Card, and open/install it through the WAD Manager App in the HB Channel. I then download/install cIOS_fix, IOS Downgrader, and Custom IOS Downgrader to 3.2?

    I think I understand, but what's the "Custom IOS Downgrader to 3.2" as opposed to the "IOS Downgrader"?

    to install the cios_fix don't run the Wad Manager from fist step , you need to run custom Wad Manager that runs from ios16 then from there choose cios_fix to install , then ios downgrader , then cios downgrader , then you are happy brandon [​IMG]

    IOS downgrader return you the signing bug into your Wii, and Custom IOS Downgrader change your firmware from where you are to 3.2 or whatever between 2.0 to 3.3

    Hmm, this should be my last noob question I guess. What's the "Custom IOS Downgrader" as opposed to the "IOS Downgrader" and will everything I need be covered within this tutorial?

    It like "Oh f***" but in spanish, and to the OP, again:

    Custom IOS Downgrader:

    Lets you choose what firmware to install on your Wii, between 2.0 and 3.3

    IOS Downgrader:

    Bring to your Wii the signing bug back, so you can install .wads without a cIOS previously installed

    And yes that guide is the choice

    Going through the download folder, I can't find "IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad"
    Is it compressed in a boot.dol file, and if not, where can I download it?
    I also don't have a "Custom IOS Downgrader" in the file either.
