    IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad - Google It and place it in the 'WAD' folder

    Step 1:
    Update your Wii to the latest version.

    Step 2:
    Using "The Homebrew Channel", open "WAD Manager".

    Step 3:
    Press "A" on the Wii Remote once.
    The Wii should detect a SD Card.
    Press "A" again to see a list of WADs on the SD Card.
    Use the "D-Pad" to select "IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad".
    Press "+" to install the WAD.
    Once installed, press the "Home" button, to restart you Wii.

    Step 4:
    Using "The Homebrew Channel", open “Custom Manager".
    Using the same method as in "Step 3", install the "cIOS_Fix.wad".
    Once installed, press the "Home" button, to restart you Wii.

    Note:
    If that fails to install, just use “WAD Manager” to install it like in the youtube video.

    Step 5:
    Using the ‘Homebrew Channel’, open ‘IOS Downgrader’. Just follow the instructions on the screen and wait until it finishes installing the necessary IOSs.

    STEP 6:
    Using "The Homebrew Channel", open "Install Shop IOS51".
    Use the "D-Pad" to select "Yes", and install "IOS51", by pressing "A".
    Use the "D-Pad" to select "Yes", and install the IOS Patch, by pressing "A".
    Use the "D-Pad" to select "No", and DO NOT install the "Wii Shop Channel".

    Step 7:
    Using the ‘Homebrew Channel’, open ‘WAD Manager ’. Install ‘WAD MANAGER 1.3’.

    Step 8:
    The Wii is now able to install WADs and Homebrew Apps should work properly now.

    Optional Step:
    If you use “WiiGator” or the “Backup Loader”, using the Homebrew Channel, install ‘cIOS Installer’. This updates the ‘cIOS_Fix’ that was previously installed.

    You need Custom WAD Manager (Custom WM) to install the cios_fix.wad if you get that error.
