    Hi... well, I just found out it was a HUGE mistake to update my Wii to 3.4J... so anyway I want to downgrade my wii to 3.2J. It is a Jap Wii, I have installed Homebrew already (after the 3.4J update).

    I have the
    1. Wad Manager 16
    2. Wad Manager V1.3
    3. cIOS37_rev3-Installer
    4. 23517_cIOSDowngrader_v1.2
    5 The two wads ... IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad & IOS37-64-v2070.wad.
    6. cios_fix.wad


    Now, I tried to install the IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad using Wad Manager V1.3 on Homebrew (renamed to boot.dol already, copied and pasted boot.dol into apps/WADS and the .wad in the root of my SD card) .... but every time I get an error (ret= -1) during "Retrieving devices" when I try to run it and then I am asked to restart my Wii. So what am I doing wrong? Can someone help me step by step? I have read a few of the helping threads here but it all did not work. I keep getting the same error for the rev3-installer, the downgrader and both wad managers..... So I'm stumped and extremely pissed.

    Edit: I tried to run the rev3-installer ( IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad & IOS37-64-v2070.wad both in the root of my SD) and I got an error yet again. (ret = -2011)! ARGHH! I need help please!!

    Wad doesnt go into the root of your SD card

    on the root of your card make a folder called "wad" and put any .wad files into it.

    Then try running wad manager again

    It seems like you already have the files so try doing the steps in the order of my guide (in my sig)

    You can skip starfall cause I dont think it works on J region. Make sure you downgrade to 3.2J

    Just get wads from only trusted sources and you should be okay

    Question:

    What does the Cios_Fix.wad does again?
    What does it fix? [​IMG]
