Please help me, i have installed homebrew channel with bannerbomb, I do NOT have a mod chip or anything, but i am trying to install a cIOS so that i can play wii backup games on my console. But i have a little problem. Everytime i try to install the cIOS with pretty much any version, The wii Remote will turn off and i cant do anything. I can select which IOS i want to install, but as soon as i press A to install the Wii remote turns off and i cant do anything, I have tried using a Gamecube controller as well and still nothing. Please help me.

What firmware are you on?


#3
What do you mean Fireware? Like Menu Version?
#4
I have Version 4.2 On the wii.
#5
First off I didn't say firewire I said Firmware.

Second you can't just install HBC and that is it. You need to exploit the system.

Follow this guide HERE.

Yeah. Sorry about that. I typed the wrong thing. I opened the guide you posted, i hate to be stupid, but i dont see what to do or anything telling me how to exploit my system??

Ethan,

Below the red lettered paragraph is an exclamtion mark followed by "WARNING: SPOILER INSIDE (show)" Click the show button and it will display a link to a PDF file.

Download it and use password: Amarokz.

There is a second link to download necessary files below that and expand like before. Good luck and happy downloading!!

Okay i did what i thought and started from scratch. everything has been going awesome during the install in the guide. BUT... I got to where i go to Dop-Ios, and i got IOS-53 and IOS-55 and IOS-70, it goes through them all the way and says Completed!! But after that it sais ERROR: Something failed. (ret-1) So does this mean it Failed?? Or did it work??
#11
I got IOS-70 to install by trying it like 10 times finally worked!! Well now i am at the last step. I have done everything correct, but on Wad manager i installed IOS 249 and it worked great! I went to install NeoGamma R7 and it says Installing ticket...ERROR! (ret= -2011) Same thing happens when try to install USB Loader, same error and everything? How do i get them to install please help?

What is the Trucha Bug Restorer guide going to help me with?? what will it do to the wii?
#15
The Trucha Bug Restorer will give you back the trucha bug--an exploit in earlier versions of IOS that enable homebrew users to by-pass Nintendo's security checks. Also, this will allow you to install custom IOSes. In essence, backup launchers, USB loaders, WAD Manager and cIOS installers to name a few are all dependent of the trucha bug.

#16
I put it on the Sd card, but i cant get anything to come up on homebrew channel. I ejected the Sd and put it back in a ton of times, but it wont show up
#17
As soon as i try to Load Trucha Bug Restoreroff homebrew it freezes and wont load. after waiting about 4 seconds it just goes back to the apps on homebrew???
#18
On the Trucha bug restorer, it worked fine up until it said Press A to start step 2 or whatever, and it said Error: Could not se the revision to 0 Downgrade failed press any button to continue.. Now what?????
