    Hello, I am currently ripping my hair out when trying to install a certain WAD. I have Wii firmware 3.2U, cIOSrev21 using IOS249 as a base, and have Hermes cIOS222v5 installed.
    The wad I am trying to install was created off CustomizeMii, the base wad is the USB Loader GX forwarder, I also tried the channel. I create the wad without any problems, but when I try to install
    it, I get the infamous "ret -1029" error. Every other WAD I try works but this one. I tried installing different cIOSrevs, different WAD Managers, no luck.

    I would like to post the wad I am trying to install, but it is against the rules, but I could post the boot.dol I am trying to inject if necessary.

    EDIT: I am aware of what the error means, but I don't know how to fix it

    I also found this written by Waninkoko on twitter:

    "Getting -1029 error? Fix your WAD! Byte 0x1F1 of the ticket should be 0x00 (or 0x01 if using the Korean common key). "

    I have no idea how to change the byte either. [​IMG]

    Select a different IOS to use for install... 36 for example.

    it's just a USB Loader GX forwarder you're trying to install??? if it truly is a .wad problem...why not just find a different one...there's only about 10,000 of them out there....

    Isn't ret -1002 the unfixable error of death? I saw that in another topic where some else go the error, and Mauifrog posted it.

    That's -1012 and -1024.

    -1022 is a content hash issue. It's a common error for poorly-made warez releases that haven't been re-signed, but since this wad came out of CustomizeMii, it's probably corrupt. CustomizeMii wads typically shouldn't have this issue.

    Get/make another wad.

    No ret 1024 is the bad one, accompanied by a syscheck with no trucha bug on ios that are known to have the patch.

    1022/1029 means that the tmd of the wad is no good. Get another wad.

    Alright, I tried another wad, this time I tried the Static base wad which came with CustomizeMii.
    Still didn't work. I am really becoming less patient over this as I have tried pretty much everything
    but nothing will install this wad, is there some kind of way I can install this wad manually?

    Perhaps more details on what your trying to do, what you have done, etc will help get you an answer.

    Yes, I could install a non-edited Static Base and USB Loader channel.

    Alright, this is what I am trying to do:

    I am trying to create a custom channel for a homebrew app I like to use a lot, so I took the boot.dol of this app and injected it into
    the USB Loader channel using CustomizeMii, I then edited the banner and icon properly. I create the WAD without any errors. I can install the un-edited USB Loader channel
    but when I try to install my custom channel, it gave me the "ret -1029" error. When I tried to install it on other base ios, I would get "ret -2011" or "ret 1022".
    So then I tried to inject the boot.dol into the Static Base wad given in CustomizeMii, I took the animations and layout from the USB Loader channel, added them to the
    static base, edited the banner and icon properly, created wad successfully, tried to install, didn't work.

    I have absolutely no idea why this is happening, and I am very frustrated.
