First thing you should do is restore IOS70 and the 4.2u system menus. The .wad files are out there and have been documented in this thread. Of course you must get a priiloader menu first.
There may be other methods of unbricking out there beyond what I've described. I'm pretty noob at this.
I've used the BannerBomb exploit and The homebrew channel with total success. As far as editing cIOS and other softmods those worked too. My issue was from the priiloader. There are a lot of different mods out there and different wiis, so if you do choose to mod your wii be sure that the method you choose is appropriate for your wii. I didn't install Bootmii and back-up my wii properly, so I'm screwed.
I will give it a try thanks.
nvm look at my question below
On step 5 when I click install IOS 53, it initializes network and downloads files.. it gets stuck on the 3rd file it is downloading.. gives a few more lines and says "error" then reboots the wii.
help.. idk what to do
I appreciate the input but, nope that didn't work either.

Well, now that its in the wii as a ".ini" file, I'm getting all sorts of good syntax errors under "System Menu Hacks". Well, instead of fighting with it, I just want to get "priiloader" off of there. Sadly, when I go to "Homebrew Channel", then to "/apps/Priiloader v0.1/boot.dol" and load it, I do press the minus symbol and I get this as a message:
"Logged in as 'su'!
preloader system ticket found
checking for preloader...
Preloader installation found, restoring system's menu.
Unable to restore the system menu, aborting mission..."
And then it brings me back to the homebrew. Can someone please help me out here? I just want to get it back to the original menu screen and I'll try continuing it again later. Kthx.
HELP ME PLEASEEE
