    Here's my beef. Was upgrading and already around 15-20% completed. Failed with an error code while doing it. Wii rebooted, already can see system menu 4.0 in settings and the sdcard icon from system menu. Initially, this update was because I mistakenly installed cioscorp wads on it. The end result screwed up the Wii with a wiikey mod altering its disc channel direct read capability because now it always prompts for an update regardless whether the game disc had its update removed.

    So as I was saying. After 15-20% and a failed attempt, now it always fails with the same error code. Has nintendo banned me? So now I need to know since I did install IOS36rev8, can I just run cIOS downgrader or ARC1.1m5 to downgrade it back to 3.2? I got all the original non-patched cioscorp files which I can use to restore the Wii back to its normal wiikey operational condition once its downgraded. Thanks for any advice.

    By the way, it's for a JPN Wii..

    1) Use Waninkoko's Firmware Updater 4.0
    2) Using WadManager1.3, install IOS60 patched with Free The Bug.exe
    3) Run Waninkoko's IOS Downgrader 1.0.

    This is what I did and everthing safely installed good and all is fully working.

    Wanin's 4.0 system updater does not work for JPN Wii. It will end up with a brick. Sorry forgot to mention that.
