    Preloader/Priiloader Brick Fix

    Preloader/Priiloader Brick Fix

    "Error autobooting system menu! Ticket not found!"
    "System Files are Corrupted"
    Other errors

    Sometimes you will find yourself semi-bricked with preloader/priiloader. This usually occurs following the installation of preloader/priiloader onto an unsupported system menu, or results from a corrupted installation of unknown origin. It can also occur following a failed system menu update, or system ios install. If you find your self booting to a system error or black screen following the above scenario, but have a functional preloader/priiloader, this could fix you.

    Most common cause- Installing preloader on 3.4, shame on you. Reinstalling ios60 with preloader installed on 4.0/4.1 system menu. Possibly also when installing preloaded on 4.2/4.3 system menu.
    Less common cause- Corrupted installation of preloader/priiloader.

    Warnings:
    If you recently installed a wad, usually for a custom channel of some sort, WiiWare, or VC title, do not follow this guide. You are likely bannerbricked, and this is not for you. If you can see the health screen, you are likely bannerbricked as well. You must uninstall the bad banner to fix your issue.


    The following procedure will reinstall your system ios and system menu, removing preloader/priiloader in the process. Dop-Mii will backup and restore priiloader after the System Menu install. Preloader will be removed by this method- before reboot we must reinstall Priiloader if it was not restored by dop-mii. Restart of the wii without Priiloader install could result in a wii without Priilaoder.


    Backup and format your sd-card
    Extract Dop-Mii_v14.2.zip to sd:\

    Load Dop-Mii
    Load dop-mii from HBC, or-
    Load from priiloader load/install, load the dop-mii.dol, or
    You can use HBC-Forwarder.dol to start HBC from priiloader if needed, then load dop-mii
    Dop-mii starts

    Select ios250, press A
    (250 fails?, try 249, 222/223, 36/236, others, try try try again)
    Select ios, mios, bc, press A
    Install IOS60-64-v6174 with all patches
    Install
    IOS70-64-v6687
    with all patches

    Install from NUS if online
    From SD if offline- place all needed wads in sd:\wad
    IOS60-64-v6174.zip IOS70-64-v6687.zip


    Press B to back out the main menu


    Select System Menu, press A

    Select System Menu 4.1 (u, e, j, k) for your region
    Install from NUS if online, or offline from SD- place all needed wads in sd:\wad
    4.1u-System Menu-NUS-v449.zip = NTSC-U USA
    4.1e-System Menu-NUS-v450.zip
    = PAL Euro
    4.1j-System Menu-NUS-v448.zip
    = NTSC-J JAPAN
    4.1k-System Menu-NUS-v454.zip = NTSC-K KOREA
    Install System Menu 4.1
    Backup and Restore priiloader when prompted (very important),
    Preloader will be removed

    Exit to HBC
    DO NOT REBOOT WII

    Restore Priiloader
    If you have priiloader, dop-mii should have offered to backup/restore it-
    If Priiloader was restored by dop-mii, go to below
    hacks.ini
    If you have preloader, it will be removed
    If you had preloader, or if priiloader was not restored for some reason
    Extract
    Priiloader_0.4_BB2.zip to sd:\
    Install priiloader from HBC,

    -Read the instructions, and hold down B, and press + to use ios249. This will install priiloader.


    Enable mandatory Priiloader Hacks
    Save
    hacks.ini to sd:\
    Hold reset and boot into priiloader
    Click hacks, enable "block disk updates" and "block online updates"

    Warning:
    This process is well tested and very very safe, but like all thing there are risks and this could brick your wii.

    Great day for you to post this. I just lost my 4.2u v481 system menu about 30 minutes ago and this thread got me running again.

    Thank you!

    My Wii is at 4.1U. A few questions:

    1) My problems started after installing a version of ios60 from a wad, after having already installed preloader. This is definitely the right guide for me?

    2) After installing the 2 wads from wad manager, the system must reboot itself, correct? There's no way to go straight through to installing preloader while I'm sure I still have control?

    3) My games are currently functional and I'm using ios249 instead of ios60. Problems include desyncing remotes while in the settings menu and preloader menu. Could this desyncing problem spread to other areas or is it confined? Is my system menu (how I get to games) itself at risk? I'm trying to figure out if this is worth the risk of uninstalling preloader.

    I think I fuxed my wii... I had already setup bootmii and I have the nand backup I created, after having issues with booting to the system menu I uninstalled priiloader, then tried to reinstall when it gave me an error and a screen dump, I had to hard reset my wii, after that it boots in black screen, nothing in the above works as I am completely unable to boot into the menu, am I at a loss?

    That does not sound good. Read this:
    Sticky: OH SH*T: Black Screen of WII!!!

    1- sounds like the right guide for you

    2- no, there is no way to install preloader first. If it fails, you have no preloader

    3- most of your issues are probably related to you corrupted system menu. Using iso249 is a band aid of sorts. Things should not get worse unless you install or uninstall other stuff. You will probably find other random errors with HB apps.

    I don't have a GC controller to try the last solution, but besides that how would my wii be fully bricked if I had already setup bootmii and created a nand??

    I did not say your wii was fully bricked. Just provided your options on methods to fix your black screen.

    If those 3 options fail, then your fully bricked.

    I didn't say anything about you telling me my wii is fully bricked... I just asked a question.

    From what I've said is it highly possible the last option will work? Before I go out looking for a CG controller.
