I tried to run the guide to install the Backup Launcher, but when I run DowngraderIOS35.dol it doesn't connect to the internet like the video shows. What am I doing wrong?
If you notice, the video's network connection at that point fails. The guy just proceeds with the guide without downloading any files. I've followed this guide 10 times now, modding friend's and family's wiis, did 2 or 3 before I realised IOS35 downgrade needed wifi (i.e. logged into your home router). However, those wiis still function without any issues. You are probably getting that message that says you've already run the downgrader....just carry on with rest of guide.
Oh ok, I'll try doing it again.
Just to clear things up, do you need wifi for IOS35 downgrader with wiiconnect24 on or off? Or does it matter at all?
I finished the rest of the guide, but when I load the backup launcher channel, it doesn't come up with a menu. Have I done something wrong?
If your having an issue with a particular game working I would prefer you start a new thread for help. I don't want this thread to be a "game issue" thread.
This Softmod will not effect your Modchip. So just use the guide as is.
The latest update is still 4.0 firmware.
As I said above to motleydud This Softmod will not effect your Modchip. So just use the guide as is.
As I said to jcee2k5 If your having an issue with a particular game working I would prefer you start a new thread for help. I don't want this thread to be a "game issue" thread.
You will more then likely get the same Import compatibility issues with the USB Loader/Backup launcher as you would with a Modchip. If you have further questions about game issues please start a new thread.
@all that are asking about WiFi.
As far as I know you need WiFi so you can connect to the Wii servers and download the proper files needed. If your WiFi is not working then start a new thread and ask for help. All I can do is tell you is you need a WiFi connection. If you don't have Internet access then read the Wii manual or search on how to make a WiFi connection.
Sorry Larry if I'm spreading disinformation about the wifi issue. It's just that I've come across this a fair bit. Obviously you need wifi for the IOS35 downgrade as files are downloaded. Like I said, I accidentally did this part without wifi and had no adverse effects. Another time I realised I'd done it without wifi, tried to do it again with wifi to be told I'd already run downgrader. The video runs it without wifi, the Demonoid torrent uploader ran it without, just wanted to draw peoples' attention to the fact. That's my last word on the subject....lol
First i just onea say Thanks!!!!
Last of all, WHERE TO GET WBFS Manager 3.0.1 FOR 32-BIT SYSTEM??? i have a 31 bit system!!! and vista)
Click on the WBFS Manager 3.0.1 link on the first page.
When the pther page comes up click on the WBFSManager 3.0.1 RTW x86 link to download the 32-bit version.
(It would be good if you include this in the thread)
It is included in the link.
Larry..... I downloaded the cios38_rev12installer.dol file. so i create a folder in my apps folder named cios rev 12 then put the file i downloaded in there and rename it boot.dol correct?
also does usb loader gx have to be installed as a forwarder or can i install it as a wad using wani's wad manager 1.3? I just updated my wii to 4.0 using your link (originally modded on 3.4) and everything went well. I installed the ios60 wad and then did the system update. Now im trying to get cios rev 12 along with the new usb loader gx. Thanks larry
BTW what state are you in??
I have the forwarder included because USB Loader GX update like 1 or 2 times week. So it is easier to just use a forwarder that will launch whatever application is in the usbloader folder.
As for cIOS38_rev12 you can do what you said above or download the SoftmodPack which the cIOS38_rev12 is included.
I followed your guide and everything went very smooth until I attempted running the IOS Downgrader. I mostly had "successful" and "ok" installs but there were a few errors... Is this normal? Has anyone else had errors running the IOS Downgrader?
My errors were:
Right away I had "IOS11... ERROR! (ret = -1)"
Everything else installing ok until the end when I got these other two "content #11... ERROR! (ret = -1)" and right below "Installing title... ERROR! (ret = -1017)"
What should I do? Everything seems to be working fine though...
If everything is working finr then don't worry about it.
for some reason whenever i load the wii backup channel the .3gamma title appeats and the little green icon in the bottoom left corner show up but, none of the "launch game" or other options come up.
nothing to push and i must turn off power.
I just want to check backup gamma had the feature to force NTSC.How about usb loader,is there any way to force the pal iso to ntsc iso when I load my game through usb drive.I had try wiifrii 2.3b but I cannot find the commom key .May I know where can common key ?
You can force region in the settings menu, once you have unlocked the USB Loader, Password: ab121b.
