    Unknowingly updated a hacked Wii :(

    As the title reads I did a system update to a hacked Wii. I bought this Wii on eBay and the seller didn't say anything about it being hacked.

    Wii boots into priiloader and gives the following error:

    Error autobooting system menu!
    Could not open boot file!

    IOS v70
    Systemmenu v481
    Priiloader v0.7(r137)
    priiloader is a mod of preloader 0.30


    There is a no SDcard in the slot. From what I've read on here you need one. From what I understand I need to re hack the wii but I have no idea what version was on the Wii.

    Any help would greatly be greatly appreciated.

    There's probably a way to fix your problem, however you should demand a refund simply because the seller did not say the wii was hacked. (unless you got it for a good deal). perhaps give him a bad rating if u bought online

    Yeah I was considering doing that. But I figured I try to fix this because it would be a pain in the a$$ to do a refund. Plus I don't have the time to wait for shipping (its for work) and I need it up asap. And I plan on leaving a bad rating.

    priiloader v7 had a glitch that would not launch hbc correctly. It's odd that they had priiloader installed and you managed to update the wii. One of the thing priiloader is designed for is preventing updates.

    You are going to need an sd card to get this fixed. You should be able to autoboot a file with priiloader and launch mmm and begin the fixing process. I am going to move this to the bricked section so people who specialize in this will be able to help you.

    One thing I forgot to mention, it didnt sucesfully update. I thought it was because of the poor wifi connection but when I turned it on the next day I was brought to the priiloader screen.

    Thank you for moving it, I wasnt sure if it was considered bricked since I was still able to access priiloader. I appreciate your help

    Just buy a 2gig standard card, then do the softmod any wii guide. Start at chapter 1, 4.2 system menu banner bomb2. Put the chapter 1 files on the sd card. Then boot the wii into priiloader and click load/install, select boot.elf and press 1 to load it. Then just follow the the rest of the guide, do everything. Your wii is fine, so relax.

    i would definitely give this guy a bad review because knowing if it is hacked or not is a really important thing to leave out. if someone else got this and happened to them i am sure they would have reported this guy to ebay because of it being hacked. i would still report him if it ends up being totally bricked in the end
