Thanks. I still cant get to the main system menu because the "press A" never comes up (maybe it will if i keep trying?). Everything went smoothly following your instructions except when i tried to exit to the hbc after installing 4.1 and backing up and restoring priiloader. It didn't exit to hbc but a black screen with a message something like this came up:
exception DSI occurred!
I 'll write down the entire message exactly if you think it could help. So my only choice was to reboot the wii. do you think having a lot of vc wads installed could be preventing me from getting to the system menu? when i select "launch title" in priiloader this comes up: warning TMD size error on 00010001-4a434245. then my vc wads come up and i can load most of them.
The system menu should be good now so I can't think of anything else that would be causing your problem.
Perhaps you installed a bad wad, for vc or other.

Just use the nand formatter.
you take a nand backup before you do anything if you follow my guide, so if you want to restore back to how you are now, you can do and lose nothing if it doesnt work.
