    I Just upgraded from 3.2E to 4.0E using this guide and now my wad installer isnt working. It is giving me ret -1 and -1017 errors.
    Anyone know what's wrong?

    -1 is usually an SD related problem, have you tried reformat to FAT and start again? I once got -1017 and it was because I had wads in wrong place, have you got yours in folder called wad at root?

    are you using wad manager 1.4? if you are make sure it is the sdhc version if you are using sdhc.

    Just tried reformatting, it didn't work.
    And the WAD folder is in the correct place :/
    Any more ideas?

    @Blade: Yes I installed patched ios60, no Wad Manager 1.3

    Edit: Using WM 1.4 I get ret -1022

    Use Any Title Deleter to delete ios 249.
    Install cios by waninkoko (any version will do) into ios 249.
    Installing WAD work fine again~

    The above steps is not same as a simple reinstall of cios. You must delete ios 249 and install cios 249 again.

    the nice thing is you can use the classic controller now, gamecube controller cords are SO short it's annoying
