    Hi everyone, I'm following a guide to get backup loader installed right

    I'm at 3.3 so i'm going through the IOS downgrader but i've hit a dead end [​IMG]

    While installing ios36 v1042 it got an error called -1.

    Could anyone tell me whats wrong?

    Thanks in advance.

    It maybe that the ticket for IOS 36 is damaged. Try finding a wad of IOS 36 and installing that via wad manager, if you can't find one you can use wii srubber to get one from a disc.

    Once you've done that try downgrading again.

    Hi make sure there is enough free space on your Wii, I had this error and after deleting a few Virtual Console games off the Wii it installed fine.

    From my experience, ret=-1 is a media error.

    Make sure it's a 2G or less and formatted to FAT, not FAT32 and see what happens.

    Thanks to all who replied.

    I got it to work, all I did though was restart the download and it started on the one that failed, which happened to be the final one [​IMG]

    Thanks anyways~
