    So like said I decided to read lots of posts regarding preloader (I usually do when installing new scary stuff) and all I see is people having lots of trouble with it (preloader) so im a little bit scared on doing this, so, wanting to follow this guide ( The Preloader Guide - GBAtemp.net ) to the letter i found you need:

    "A 3.2/4.0 Firmware, complete with downgraded IOSes."

    I've asked there but havent gotten an answer so I figured i'd try here with you guys and see if you could help me on this.

    Like I think I said in the first post I only have 3 cioses, wanin's (245 or 254 not sure) hermes's (222) and mplayer's (202) so i'm pretty sure that isn't having all your "IOSes downgraded". =/

    Thanx!

    I didn't realise you hadn't done the full mod. Best not to follow two different guides, I would recommend this guide, go through it step by step. Its straight forward, its been wriiten by a very professional guy, dogeggs.
    If you had the usual setup you could just run menu reload and the preloader part, but that may not work as you don't have C249 Rev14.

    At least starting from the beggining you will understand whats what.

    Sorry I do have waninkoko's cios 249 rev 14 installed when I said I had "wanin's (245 or 254 not sure)" stupid me.

    So i've read dogeggs's guide and think its very simple and i think i can do it:

    Im gonna skip step 1 and 2 since i've already done everything in those steps.

    Step 3 is about getting CIOS'es installed.. why do I need that? since i just want preloader (and reading dogeggs's guide it seems that i do need to install ios60 patched :S before preloader)

    Step four im thinking ill skip, right? And then install preloader doing everything in step 5.

    So am I only doing step 5?


    Another thing, what do u mean by "If you had the usual setup you could just run menu reload and the preloader part", specially the menu reload part!.


    Noobness! sorry..

    Alex.

    The first thing I said was you can reload your system menu, then install preloader. If you want to do just that it could fix things.
    Here is the link, you need system menu 4.0u, thats file v417 install the wad with wad manager. Then install preloader with wad manager. Like I said, if that doesn't work, use the guide.

    Jeez I was literarily staring at the tv screen like crazy while it installed...

    Ok.. installed the v417 System menu with wad manager and, although im very happy things are still running, the problem's still there. So maybe all I really did was help rule out the problem!

    Got the new HBC too, very nice.

    Gonna read up on dogeggs guide once more!



    EDIT: Before I went on installing the sys menu wad I went and backed up all my savegames with savegame manager 1.0 and, remember that little savegame that's like empty?, didn't appear in savegame manager! Dunno if that means anything..
    EDIT2: I also killed every non-legal wad with wad manager, problem's still there!

    Many thanx WiiJohn!

    Alex.
