    Hey guys, as you might guess I'm softmodding my Wii U and it seems I've hit a wall. I was following this tutorial:

    I got to the point where he runs CIOS 36 Installer, and I keep getting a -1017 error. After much Googling I learned about the Trucha Bug Restorer and tried that. Ironically, I am now finding I am also getting a 1017 error on that as well.

    I've been Googling for basically hours and I can not seem to find a solution. I was hoping you guys might be able to help.

    Let me know if you need any additional info. I did check and my Wii U version is 4.3.2 U.

    1. you don't need CIOS 36(236?) installer. it is optional

    2. Don't follow random guides and try things you don't understand. Don't follow guides that do not specify that they are for vWii only. Is the Trucha Bug Restorer specify that it is for vWii? (I have never heard of anything like that, it is for Wii only.) If not, it wii brick your WiiU. You are lucky that it failed.

    3. Read the Stickies here especially learn what NOT TO DO. It is really hard if even possible to recover from a vWii brick.

    Thanks for the warning and information. In my idiocy, I read the stickies, but it just didn't occur to me that I was looking at tutorials for the wrong system. Thankfully no brick yet. If you don't need the CIOS236 Installer, what is its purpose? What Homebrew is essential in order to run backups?

    I acknowledge I made a mistake, and even the smartest people can do stupid things. If possible I'd appreciate some civility. I came to you guys to ask for help.

    He's right. I'm the smartest person on this site, and I even made a mistake once.

    I've been trying to use Blue Dump. How do you install and run it?

    Don't use Blue Dump, use YABDM. There are instructions on that page.

    By Blue Dump I meant YABDM. How do you install it? Does it go under the app folder of your SD card? I can't seem to get it to show on the Homebrew Channel.

    Edit: Nevermind, apparently the version I downloaded is different and doesn't work. The version you linked looks like it should work fine.

    And that's why we always read the directions. ;)

    I did, the version I had was before I had your directions. I followed the link on the Do's and Do Not's thread for YABDM, but it links to a cluster of incredibly confusing files with no clear indication of what you should download.
