    Is there a reason you want to down-grade IOS15? If you are just looking to update your Wii including the softmod (cIOS) then do as FIX94 suggests and use ModMii. You will find everything is explained within the first post of the ModMii thread.

    Don't hi-jack other people's threads...it's not nice [​IMG]

    Two pages for you to read:
    -Homebrew setup: This is a step-by-step guide of how to install the Homebrew Channel on your Wii console.
    -Homebrew Channel: WiiBrew's Wiki Page about the HomeBrew Channel (including the HackMii Installer).

    Ahhh, now it all makes sense... EZ Hacking Wii guide by homebrewpirate is the problem. First thing...stop! Don't use that guide. Second thing, go get ModMii like I've said twice already and use that instead. You wouldn't have had any trouble if you did that in the first place. Just read the first post in the ModMii thread and it will explain everything for you. If you still get stuck and can't find any answer in the thread with search just post your issue in the ModMii thread and we'll be glad to help. Don't worry about what you've already done to your Wii as ModMii will take care of it and when you install the system titles (WADs) it gets for you it will overwrite the old stuff.

    ModMii thread: http://gbatemp.net/t207126-modmii-for-windows

    Ohh, and third thing, thank XFlax, he's the guy that puts ModMii together. Before ModMii these forums overflowed with posts about bad guides and people getting stuck [​IMG]
