    I wanted to know, I recently used bootmii to install the HBC and DVDX, that's the extent of hacking i have done to my wii, is it possible to install WADs to it, without having to install custom firmware and/or downgrading?

    To expand upon the previous "NO", you need to install custom IOS first.

    You will have to use comex's dvdx installer to downgrade ios35 first, then use wad manager 1.4, select IOS35, and install a cIOS wad

    If it were possible to use WAD Manager, I think this thread would not exist. WAD Manager's IOS needs to be trucha-patched.

    First you run this http://www.mediafire.com/file/3yjnzzntyy4/notdvdx.dol, and ONLY use the downgrade IOS35 option then exit.

    Second you find a cIOS wad (try google for that) and install using this http://www.mediafire.com/?scwhmzam1mn When asked select IOS35.

    after that you should be able to install anything else you want.

    bahhh. The easiest option to restore the trucha bug is to install old wad like the IOS36-64-v1042.wad. Just use NUS Downloader to get your old wad and install them with wad manager. Since there correctly signed that not a problem. After that you can use those old IOS to install wad that's not correctly signed and install the cIOS36revx.
    Not a big deal... dowgrading is a fail. Just install the right IOS version

    Except the newer IOSs won't let you install an old IOS over a new one.

    Sorry mate, but on an unmodded Wii they also have a deletion check to stop you doing that, you need a cIOS before you can do that

    Does it matter what CIOS it is? For example 36 vs 60?

    It has to be an IOS that has the trucha bug.

    Naturally, it would be IOS 249
