    Why does cIOS 236 throw out a -1017 error and fail to uninstall (c)IOS wads via MMM? It uninstalls channel wads perfectly fine but I get the -1017 error with cIOS wads unless I use something else (249, 250, etc.) to uninstall.

    Probably no NAND permissions patch or something. Definitely some patch that isn't installed on that IOS that is on the others.

    For the record, dop-Mii can uninstall any IOS without any patched IOS at all. It'll always work. Clearly MMM will not.

    Hmmm. I thought the IOS 236 Installer made the necessary patches. I guess not all of them.

    Edit: I used Simple IOS Patcher and made sure all patches were applied. IOS 36 to slot 236. I'm wondering why MMM uses the patched 236 by default when it doesn't even work properly. I'm not understanding the purpose of IOS 236, when using a different one with MMM DOES work fine.

    Example - Use MMM w/IOS 236. Wad Manager section. Uninstall 249d2x56.wad. Fails with the -1017 error. Switching MMM to use 249, 250, etc and it uninstalls perfectly. I understand that dop-Mii will do it... I'm wondering why MMM w/236 will not.

    I'm pretty sure I've been able to uninstall cIOSs and whatnot using IOS236

    Try creating a 249d2x base 56 (beta 8 r41) wad with ModMii, installing it with MMM (using 236), then uninstalling it also with MMM (236 again). I've reinstalled everything I can think of that would cause it to not work, re-ran simple ios patcher, re-ran the ios 236 installer, etc... and it only throws out the error. Like I said though, channels/vc/wiiware uninstall fine.

    Can't for the life of me understand what's going on.

    have u tried MMM's IOS menu?
    ie. removing 249 without uninstalling a wad

    also, u should be able to overwrite any IOS using 236, so why uninstall in the first place? You should be able to install a new 249, even a stubbed 249 if u wanted to

    I know that - and I don't actually need to uninstall anything. I just want to know WHY it doesn't work with 236. I want to know what the reason is behind it not working to uninstall a cIOS via MMM's wad manager. I don't need to do it, I just want to know why it doesn't work - but it does using a different patched cIOS. ;)
