    need some help :)

    Hello,

    I'd like to say thanks in advance to whoever can help me. Here is my situation. I bought a Wii (version LU65). I had a friend do the softmod hack on it and was kind of able to watch him do it, so I will give as much info as I can. He installed the homebrew channel and neogamma v6. When I boot the Wii, a preloader v .29 comes up and I then select system menu. I can then go into neogamma and launch back up discs. Everything worked fine. I decided I'm going to return the wii, as my kid did not really seem interested in playing it. I wanted to restore the wii to default so I can return it. I deleted the neogamma and homebrew icon. However, when I turn the wii on, it still has the preloader screen. I did a system memory format, but I still get the preloader. Can anyone help me in removing the preloader? I am still able to boot to the normal system menu, but would like to remove all traces of the "homebrew" software. the preloader screen says IOS v60 system menu v449 in the bottom left.

    thanks again.

    If you look at the settings there is an option to boot to different options you need to change that to the system menu. After this the only way that anyone should see the preloader screen is if they hold in reset while it is powering up or if it is set to go back to preloader after exiting an app (which is also a setting that can be changed right next to the one you are looking for.)

    thanks for such as fast reply. Here is the issue, I did actually do this and it boots directly to the system menu. The problem is, when I do a system memory reformat and then reboot the wii, the preloader screen comes back up. I'd rather have it completely removed if possible.

    The only other thing that I know to do is actually uninstall the preloader which i do not recommend. I just had to return my Wii last night because I did that and it completely bricked it.

    If you downgrade the wii to 3.2 then run an update from the wii options menu to 4.1, it will overwrite preloader.

    Like messie said, you never downgrade or use waninkoko's updater on a LU64/65 or later, that will cause a full brick just boot into the system menu and do an official update, installing a new system menu will overwrite the one with preloader on it.

    I did the official update through the system menu. I then power on my Wii and the preloader menu still comes up. If I select system menu, it comes up with the system setup wizard (language, tv resolution, etc.)

    ok guess that means that it did install a new system menu, it just installed updated IOSs if you dont find a solution when nintendo makes a 4.2 update that should install a system menu.
