    Hello,

    Here is the situation. I got a Wii and installed homebrew channel. So far so good. I updated to 4.0 through Nintendo. Bad move, but heh I was able to reverse it using the guide I found elsewhere in the forums. So I am running the downgrader and I select 3.2e instead of 3.2u. I then follow the guide on the forums to go back to 4.0 and install cioscorps. Install preloader 0.29. Everything works. Yeah. Except when I go to play the original Zelda. It starts and goes to a black screen. So does my backup. I figure out that I loaded the wrong region and am trying to put things back to "working". Almost every app I run now comes back with this error, (ret = -1017). For instance I am trying to run Anytitle eleter and I get this message (just one example):
    Identifying as SU...Error! ES_Indentify (ret = -1017)

    I cant find anything searching the forums or Google.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Doug

    Ok. I ran iosdowngrader v1.1 and to my understanding fixed that problem. That got me through getting that app to work, however whenever I now try to install cIOS36 rev10 using WAD install mode I get the same error. ANy more help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Doug

    It may be you SD card, some SD card has problems installing some .Wads.

    Also if you have a GC memory card in the Wii or a USB drive hooked up remove them and try again..

    I'm kinda new at this but this but trying a different SD card help me with a few wads..

    GOOD LUCK.

    Reformatting the SD Card to FAT might help. I couldn't do wad installs of cIOS until I did that.
