Preloader/Priiloader Brick Fix
Preloader/Priiloader Brick Fix
"Error autobooting system menu! Ticket not found!"
"System Files are Corrupted"
Sometimes you will find yourself semi-bricked with preloader/priiloader. This usually occurs following the installation of preloader/priiloader onto an unsupported system menu, or results from a corrupted installation of unknown origin. It can also occur following a failed system menu update, or system ios install. If you find your self booting to a system error or black screen following the above scenario, but have a functional preloader/priiloader, this could fix you.
Most common cause- Installing preloader on 3.4, shame on you. Reinstalling ios60 with preloader installed on 4.0/4.1 system menu. Possibly also when installing preloaded on 4.2/4.3 system menu.
Less common cause- Corrupted installation of preloader/priiloader.
If you recently installed a wad, usually for a custom channel of some sort, WiiWare, or VC title, do not follow this guide. You are likely bannerbricked, and this is not for you. If you can see the health screen, you are likely bannerbricked as well. You must uninstall the bad banner to fix your issue.
The following procedure will reinstall your system ios and system menu, removing preloader/priiloader in the process. Dop-Mii will backup and restore priiloader after the System Menu install. Preloader will be removed by this method- before reboot we must reinstall Priiloader if it was not restored by dop-mii. Restart of the wii without Priiloader install could result in a wii without Priilaoder.
