    Well, I can't help you with the Error (like others said IOS16 installed?) but if you have BootMii ready for a NAND Backup, I would look here:

    Still in early stages, so BootMii+NAND Backup is required, but worked for me without problems...I'm now on 4.0 with the latest IOS, all Trucha-Patched [​IMG]. Works awesome [​IMG].

    this is what i did

    when i open cIOS Downgrader it says fail i try ios first and it says error -1 for all the stuff it trys to install



    1. Make A Folder Called Apps on The Root Of your SD Card

    2. Make A Folder Called wad On The Root Of Your SD Card

    3. Put The Files That Are Inside: Put In apps Folder. In The Apps Folder

    That is On Your SD Card that You Just Made.

    4. Put The Files That Are Inside: Put In wad Folder. In Your wad Folder

    That is On Your SD Card That You Just Made.

    5. Put the SD card in your Wii™. Start Up The Homebrew Channel

    Find and Open WADManager 1.3, install IOS16-64-v257.wad

    Press A And A Again

    Using The D-pad to Scroll Down Untill you Find This File:

    IOS16-64-v257.wad

    Press The Plus Button On the File

    Then Press A and wait.

    6. When That is Done Press Home Then go back to the homebrew channel and open WadManagerIOS16

    Then Find The File Called cios_fix.wad

    Press The Plus Button On the File

    Then Press A And Wait

    When It Is Finished Press The Home Button On The Remote

    7. Now Go Back To The Homebrew Channel and Find And Open

    cIOS Downgrader 1.2,

    Scroll Down Using The D-pad

    choose Your Region

    3.2E If You Are PAL (I'm PAL)

    3.2U If You Are NTSC

    3.2J If You Live In Japan

    I Recommend You Downgrade to 3.2 Cause In My Next Videos You Will Need 3.2 Fireware Of Wii

    But Again The Same Thing Applys On Your Region If Your Not Going to Downgrade To 3.2

    When You Have Selected Your Firmware

    Again Press The Plus Button

    And Then A And Then Wait For It To Finish

    Then Press Home To Restart Your Wii

    (If Your Wii Does Not Restart Turn It Off at the power point)

    8. Now Go Back To The Homebrew Channel Find And Open IOS Downgrader 1.0

    Start The Downgrade And Wait

    9. Now When You Get Back To The Wii Menu you Will Find That

    The Disc Channel needs an Updated To Play A game If You Have Mario kart Wii Put That In The Wii And Do The Update.
    This Game Only Needs An Update To Play It And your firware will Stay At 3.2

    I Recommend You Hire Mario Kart Wii Out and Update The Disc Channel

    i did one yeston virgin 3.3e wii

    i

    OPEN WAD MANAGER v1.3 installed IOS_1.wad, restart wii
    OPEN CUSTOM WAD MANAGER (at top should show ios16) install IOS_2.wad, restart wii
    LAUNCH IOS Downgrader, retry if crashes (can happen)
    RUN cIOS Downgrader, choose firmware version and region, (can take a long time - 10/15 mins) press any button to restart


    should then be on 3.2e

    if any previous hacks installed need to run hack remover

    INSTALL PRELOADER, i use 0.28e on 3.2e, should reboot and take you to preloader screen - set what hacks, save
    select auto boot, change top one to system menu
    if doesnt take you to preloader screen, switch wii off and start up, hold reset and that will take you to preloader screen

    INSTALL cIOS Installer

    INSTALL cIOScorp

    DONE


    CANT REMEMBER WHERE I GOT WAD 1 AND 2, JUST GOOGLE AND SEE WHAT YOU CAN FIND

    LIKE I SAID ABOVE I JUST DID ONE YEST, FOLLOWED THIS GUIDE
