    Hi,

    I need to install some WAD channels.
    I started off by trying to install the Homebrew. Since my system is 3.2U I tried using the bootable ISO (which should work on this version). No success - my Wii cant boot the DVD in either the Disc Channel or through the Gecko OS.
    Since I didn't care for getting all the trouble of TP hack to install HBC, I looked up and found an ISO of WAD Manager 1.3, which I managed to work.
    However, when I try to install the WADs (anyone, doesn't matter) I get an error with ret code -1029.
    I understood from looking up in forums that it might have something to do with IOS's that need to be removed, however I don't not know what IOS's are or how to remove any of them without the Homebrew channel.

    Can anyone help me to solve this ? All I really want is the ability to install WADs, but if a solution to the Homebrew installation problem come along, I wouldn't mind...
    My Wii is chipped, though I don't not know the chip type as it was purchased abroad.

    Thanks,
    Biton.

    More data that might help :
    - I have GeckOS and Backup Channel (Gamma) installed. Both read SC-Edition IOS249 at the bottom once I activate them.
    - When I load the WAD manager, it says "custom IOS detected ad loaded !"

    First of all, when you want to do homebrew, do it the best way. So install HBC.

    The problem that you're having (-1029) goes to you've an old cIOS.

    Use cIOS Uninstaller to uninstall your cIOS. Then, install the latest cIOS (cIOS36 rev08)

    When i use the Zelda TP, do I have to worry about the game doing an update (I want to stay with 3.2U) ?
    Thanks.
