    Question Wii Stuck on Preloader After Format

    Hi everyone, thank you for dropping by.

    I am completely new to Wii, and just obtained a unit from my friend. It is a Korean version. As a habit, I formatted the device after hooking it up. Then... boom! I was stuck in preloader interface. I am unaware that my friend had softmodded the device.

    the preloader says IOS v30, Systemmenu v289, preloader 0.28

    If i choose systemmenu it says "Error autobooting systemmenu! Ticket not found!"
    If I choose homebrew channel it says Error autobooting HBC. maybe title not installed?

    Following advice from another thread, I downloaded hackmii (hackmii_installer_v0.8.zip), but failed to understand the post, rather than loading it, I installed it from preloader, which seems succeeded. Realizing my fault, I loaded the file again, only to meet the exception occurred screen.
    I restarted the unit and chose installed file, and mysteriously the hackmii installer started. I installed homebrew channel. It seems that a version of bootmii exists (an uninstall option presents) and for fear that my SD card is at fault (it was an unbranded product, the only non-SDHC card I have), I didn't take further action. I exited the installer and it seems that the homebrew channel started (with all the bubbles floating and a wi-fi disk flashing). I didn't know what to do and shut the device.

    Turning on the device, I found myself at the same situation as before. Only that when I choose "installed file", I get the exception screen.

    For fear that I exacerbate the situation, I decided to stop and look for help. Being a complete newbie, I am really afraid that I complete brick my device (I wish I had not, and it seems that I didn't) in the future.

    I find that this forum is the most helpful place I can find, and I sincerely wish that you guys could help me out. Excuse my ignorant and hope you could give me as specific solution as possible.

    Thank you all.

    You need to get back into the homebrew channel (with the bubbles). Then follow the softmod any wii guide. Link is in the spoiler below. Start from the spoiler that says "softmods with Homebrew Channel installed".

    Thank you. But...do you have any idea how i can do this?
    Search engine says I should upgrade to the latest priiloader, and launch homebrew channel there, is that right?

    Can you get to hbc by choosing it in preloader? you already ran hackmii and installed right. so u should be able to choose homebrew channel and not get the error you did before. As long as you get back to hbc, follow the softmod any Wii guide, and it will install a new system menu and u will be fixed. it will also install newest version of priiloader.

    no, unfortunately not. Another post I found here states that at some point title of HBC changed, invalidating older version of preloader.
    I'm trying to install priiloader, but so far I'm unable to get a working sd card. My unit had destroyed my 128MB card.
    I just found an extremely old Panasonic 8MB SD card. I'll give it a shot.
