    So this morning I decided to downgrade my Wii from 3.4U to 3.2U. Worked great, I used AnyRegion Changer.
    Then I decided to run AnyTitle Deleter and deleted all unnecessary (or so I thought) IOSes. Bad move.
    I also deleted all channels except the Disc channel and Homebrew Channel.
    Now I can't run any games at all besides Gamecube games.
    I can't even run Zelda to do the TP hack! I do still have HBC so I can run homebrew.
    So how can I reinstall all my old IOSes without having to do a Wii System Update and updating to 4.0? I want to stay at 3.2.

    I think running the anyregion changer again should help.

    Try updating from disc... unless you can't run any disc.

    extract all the IOS'es from the update partition on any game like mario kart or NFS:Undercover, and install them with Wad Manager...!!! [​IMG]

    A good rule of thumb is never ever ever ever delete an ios. Ever. When you install a new ios it overwrites the one that is installed so there is never a reason to uninstall it. If you can still use wad manager you can install cioscorp and i think that should fix you up and load your backups via disc channel.

    I ran AnyRegion Changer again, it ran fine but seems to not have done anything.

    I don't have Mario Kart or NFS Undercover. I could get IOS Downgrader, but Waninkoko's site seems to not exist anymore (or at least Google won't find it). I just see his blog and it's all in Spanish. Where can I get it now?

    IOS Downgrader does nothing, just tells me to restart my Wii.
    BTW Zelda will still not launch.
    I did manage to install CIOS 36 rev 9, should I try CIOSCORP? I've never used it and I don't know what it does.

    Installed cIOS then that means it's definitely recoverable. You should also try cIOS downgrader instead of IOS downgrader

    I tried cIOS downgrader and it didn't work.
    HOWEVER, I'd like to report success with CIOSCORP.
    After installing it Zelda boots!

    Thanks to all you guys for all your help! [​IMG]
