Surely we can extract the necessary files from wads, or download them (as the downgrader does) and store then on the SD in folders like "000000000000000000000000000000000001" or something?

It took me 7 goes to downgrade 1 wii today with ARC 1.1b m5, AFTER i had downgraded 2 other wiis: both of which taking 1 attempt each to downgrade.... wtf?

the reason being "I need a network to download the IOS.... closing... bye" !!?! ... there is nothing wrong with my network!

surely this whole thing can be captured and contained ready to be flashed to the wii? Redirect from the network check to the SD or an autoboot DVD?

even better: if this whole twilight hack -->through--> downgrade --> through to --> cioscorp installation etc could be automated in one .dol file..... just imagine the ease of use.....

Any one else think this should be possible with all this awesome homebrew about atm?

Understandibly the files are copyright... but fuckin hell if we are modifying and hacking anyways, we could obtain them ourselves, and use them offline in future....

Actually you can pack all the IOS inside a 3.2 Wii, even the SysMenu already hacked by ARCm5 (just like I did), and then install them all with Wad Manager...!!!

You can try this offline version of ARC 1.1b. I never used it before though.

It's suppose to do what you said.

You download the files it needs from the Nintendo Server, and place it into the /IOS/00000001/[Title ID] folder.

Wait.. fuck... sorry to double post...

All i need is the IOS30-64-v1040.wad, the SystemMenu-v290.wad and wad manager and i could use it on any firmware (3.1e to 3.4e) and it would up/downgrade any wii to 3.2e, without an internet connection?

?? is it really that simple?!

Well actually cIOS downgrader only installs

BC thingy
MIOS
IOS30
and finally the SysMenu3.2

you have upacked a SysMenu.wad, that is not usable to repack it, and finally the IOS Downgrader 1.0 download and install the rest of the IOS but in 3.1/3.2 versions
