    Hi all

    I'm trying for a long time to downgrade my wii 3.4E to 3.2E

    My wii dont have modchip
    I have installed the HBC and the IOS 249

    When i try to downgrade the cios downgrader 1.2 return an error -1, the same thing occurs with IOS downgrader 1.0

    The metagames forum point me on a sd problem, i have formated the sd and tried with some different cards , no way i always have the -1 error.

    They point me too on a connection problem so i have suppressed all connection and recreated one, same error.

    Someone have an idea ?

    I apologize for my very bad english.

    Thanks for your help.

    I think you have to first run cios_fix.wad. Not too sure about that though.

    I have already run it and it installed without problem (yes with the custom wad manager)

    Then make sure you follow all the steps in this thread. I think you don't need to install IOS 249.

    I have followed these steps, IOS 249 is patched IOS 16 with cios-fix.wad no ?
    So I'm pretty sure i need it to downgrade

    The IOS downgrader and cios downgrader report the same error : ret -1 and don't install anything

    Thanks for your help

    Then it's mostly probably a problem with your SD card. Try formatting to FAT or FAT16.
