    I'm always so nervous about installing custom WADs because of banner bricks so I decided to install preloader. But when I go to install it I get the "failed to get root, current IOS (36) has the bug fixed fakesign" error. I have cIOS36 rev 9 installed and read that if I downgrade it, I can install preloader, then upgrade back to rev 9. I figured I'd read about the ios downgrader, but everything I find is about downgrading the firmware with it. Do I have to downgrade the entire firmware to get the previous version of ios 36, or can I downgrade the single ios? If it matters, I'm currently sitting on v4.0U.

    Did cIOS downgrader, then upgraded using the method described and I get the same message too.

    No playing with random banners and wads for me for a while [​IMG]

    It allows us to use USB Loader. And yeah, the downgrader removes it.

    I thought wad manager needs CIOS249 to run? If IOS downgrader removed it, how were you able to install it using wad manager again? [​IMG]

    I think I am getting a bit lost here. Because I did not install wanin's IOS36rev8/9 before updating to 4.0 so now I can't install wads or run the IOS downgrader at all. Unless you mean that rev9 can be installed with just HBC or wad manager is able to use a different cIOS to launch other than IOS249? Could you pls enlighten a confused soul?

    Yes, please can someone help us and tell us exactly what to do.

    I have tried using the cIOS downgrader twice now and get the same result.

    Is it possible for me to install a version of IOS36 that doesn't have this issue so that I can install preloader?

    Can I get my Wii back to stock 3.0E (removing all cIOS) and then try to upgrade to 4?

    Sooooo lost [​IMG]

    The steps I took (I'm on 4.0U):

    1. Use IOS downgrader (not cIOS Downgrader)

    2. Install preloader

    3. reinstall cIOS36 REV 9
