    Help With Preloader Un-bricking and Bootmii Un-Bricking

    Hi I have a wii that when I cut it on it blinks twice and then loads preloader V0.29. It does this with no sd card installed.

    I have tried the preloader brick fix but cannot choose anything because the wii remotes are out of sync. I have a GC controller but that dosent work for some reason. (help here). The gc controller works cause I tested it with another wii

    I dont know if i have bootmii installed as boot2 or whatever its called but I tried that fix and it loaded to the wad manager but I could not control anything with gc controller or wiimotes. Now when I try this un-bricking method again nothing auto loads anymore. It just goes to the preloader screen.

    Preloader says im on system menu V385, IOS v50

    Thank You for anyone who helps me.
    Sorry If this is in the wrong area

    Try to use the gc-controller in the other ports.

    Do you have a gc compatible cboot2 wad manager?
    If so plug in your GC controller in port 1 if you have not just let us know.

    Did you try an SD card with bootmii files on it? If you tried it already which brand SD card did you use? As bootmii does not work will all SD cards...

    yes I have tried an sd card with bootmii files on it. I tried it with a scan disc 256mb card and it worked once and went to the wad manager i think but I couldn't control anything. When I try the tutorial for the bootmii un-bricking again it doesn't boot to the wad manager just goes straight to preloader.

    I think I have bootmii installed and preloader installed. How can I tell if I have bootmii as boot2 installed?

    I will try another sd card and another brand to see if that's a problem when I get home later today.

    What could be causing the gc controller not to work on the preloader screen. Could it be an older version of preloader. I think I may be screwed. lol

    You will need to get that gc-controller to work if you want to do much of anything.
    Try another gc-controller

    This will work with gc-controller
    cboot2_wadmanager_1.5_mod.zip

    Ok thanks for all the help and advice. I will try another GC controller. I wonder if the gc controller doesn't work because I took it apart when I tried that savemii thing.

    I mean it works in another wii when Im playing mario kart so I assumed it should still work for the bricked wii??? IDK

    But thanks for all the quick advice. I will try another gc controller and another sd card when I get home and I will let you guys know my results

    Well thnks guys for trying to help me. I coulf not get it to work. im pretty sure bootmii is installed as boot2 because when I put the files onto the sd card Sometimes it loads to the wad manager and sometimes not. (more of the not side lol)

    Preloader v0.29 always loads up without the sd card but no gc controller works. I have tried 3 nintendo brand controllers none worked.

    I tried different sd cards with the files with the same results.
    Questions: What is the C battery in the wii for?? cause thats not in the wii.

    Also Is there a certain connection that has to be connected for the gc controller to work? I ask because this is a wii that was given to me and it had been opened to place in a drivekey mod chip. (No Chip Now)

    Thanks again

    The battery is only necessary for the date and time, no need to put it in
    If you put the GC controller in port 1 and it does not work it could be broken fuse next to the connector. There are lots of fuses on the mainboard to protect circuits from overloading. Especially on all peripheral ports. Check the black components marked with FILxx for continuity with a multi meter.
    Are you able to run signcheck with cboot2? At least you can see what is missing on the wii ...
