    Unhappy Bricked Wii but with preloader access, please help

    Hi everyone.

    This is the story

    This morning i left a original DVD of New Super Mario inside my wii. I had system menu 4.1 PAL, preloader v0.29, homebrew Channel 1.6 i belieave, NeoGamma R8 and all that jazz. Unfortunately i never configured the preloader to stop DVD's from instaling updates.

    Thats when my kid with his 3 years old turned on the wii and as usuall clicked on the DVD channel, and pressed OK. It started installing the update. I was not home at that moment, and my wife, when she looked to the TV panicked unpluged the wii in the middle of the download.

    This was the sad story :P

    Now when i turn the wii on, it goes directly to the preloader menu.

    But if i try to launch the systemmenu, it gives this message:

    - ERROR AUTOBOOTING SYSTEMMENU COULD NOT OPEN BOOT FILE.

    If i try to run the homebrew channel it gives me other error:

    - ERROR AUTOBOOTING HBC. MAYBE TITLE NOT INSTALLED?

    In the screen theres also some info:

    IOS v30 (i dont remember if this was the right number)
    Systemmenu v.354
    Preloader v0.29

    This is it. I have a NAND Backup that i did with bootmii, but i cant access it without the homebrew channel.

    Help guys, how am i going to fix this.

    My wife is completely stressed out.


    Thanx for all the help you guys can give me.

    OK, after you fix this be sure to enable the update block

    Put wadmanagers boot.dol onto the root of your sd:\
    Download system menu v354 (3.3e)
    Download ios30-v2576
    Put these two wads in sd:\wads
    Hold reset and boot your wii, preloader should start
    Click load/install
    Then load boot.dol
    Wadmanager should start, use ios36
    Install ios30
    then
    Install system menu
    Then
    Goto the 3.1-4.1 guide below
    Start at the begining and do all the steps
    Bring your wii up to 4.1 with priiloader installed and bootmii as boot2 if possible.

    Thanx so much for this info Mauifrog. It worked perfectly. My Wii is now on system menu 3.3E.

    Ona last question, in the 3.3E system menu theres already the homebrew channel and the NeoGamma r8 channel. Do i have to delete them before doing 3.1-4.1 guide again? or they get copied over without a problem?

    Thanx again, you just saved my Wii.

    And the update block is going to by my first priority

    You don't need to delete anything. You can just install, which will update everything for you. Be sure to install bootmii as boot2 if possible. Read the guide and do as it says, it should go very well for you.

    Also be sure that no one pulls the plug again. And block those updates. I think there is a hack for disk and online updates, disable them both if you can.
