    Half Brick

    Greetings WiiHacks!

    I got this wii i tinkered with a long time ago, gave up on it because it would not load in to the standard wii system channel (default main screen of the wii) it only loads to the HBC.

    i say half-bricked because yeah, i still get into the HBC and it still loads my emulators. but still, i got a bunch of wii games i wanna play and kinda want the new donkey kong for some reason (the child in me commands me) but really don't want to buy a new wii just because of that game. anyone here that can help me? don't want to unhack it completely either, its nice for SNES\NES

    Updates:
    Holding down reset while booting makes no difference.
    Booting without an SD card inserted yields in a black screen.

    Hold down reset while you power on your Wii. if Priiloader or Preloader starts go to Autoboot and see what it is set for. It sounds as if it is set to autoboot into HBC. If so, change it to system menu and do the same for return too.

    sounds like you have bootmii as boot2
    just to confirm, does the drive light flash twice without the sd card in?
