    I've been trying to install a wad to my freshly dumped nand on my wbfs/fat32 patitioned usb drive with the wad manager 1.5, but it just won't work. I always get the following:
    ">> Finishing Installation... ERROR! (ret = -1017)"

    what can I do to fix this? I already tried trucha bug restorer as I read that this would often fix -1017, but it didn't.

    It is formatted FAT32 and it works fine with other homebrew... I wrote ntfs by mistake.

    It doesn't work if you use WAD Manager to install a WAD on a NAND dump with cIOS38 rev15. Use cIOS38 rev14 instead.

    That was probably what was wrong as I'm running cios38 rev15. I'll install cios38 rev 14 now and try again.

    Are your IOS's up to date? Also, what are you using for loading VC/Wiiware

    Installing worked fine with rev 14. But some games still give me black screens and freeze when I try to start them.
    I don't really know if I'm up to date... I'm on 3.2E and the Homebrew Channel says I'm on IOS36 v.4.18 ANd I'm using the newest Triiforce MRC.

    EDIT: I simply changed the loading method and everything works fine now. Thank you everybody who helped me on here.
