But hold on there mauifrog, are u telling me that preloader is part of IOS60 because preloader got uninstalled by system menu update?
By the way i have totally convinced now that my wii has been fully bricked. Now it's not about the wii bricking threads. But i wanna learn a specific question. As u know my bricked wii was pal. Now i am about to buy a "Consoly only NTSC" wii. Are the pal cables, pal power supply (220 V) etc compatible with NTSC wii. I don't wanna brick a new wii again and again...
My power supply is multivoltage I seem to remember so would run ok in the US if I were to lop off the great UK plug and stick one of those silly US plugs on. The connection and power requirement will be the same for every Wii. The video outputs will be the same, just that the signal that the NTSC Wii produces will be NTSC by default.
this may seem a silly question, but can i send a fully bricked wii to nintendo without a warranty? i mean i am sure they would charge, or is it best to simply buy another one?
You're right that is a silly question. Of course they'll charge. Some guys have gotten away with only 75 dollars though and get a boot2 capable Wii back in return. How lucky will you be.
It must be fully brick i.e. black screen, not savemii/frii possible otherwise they'll know.
