In Need of Guidance
Ended up here after reading somebody elses problems. I am running 4.2e and used Messie's guide to soft mod. Everything works fine apart from Priiloader. Installing Priiloader was an after thought. I tried to install a Wiiware Wad that didn't show up so forgot about it. I have two forwarders loaded one for Config USB Loader and one for USBloaderGX. I also installed one for IOS222V4. There was one for Mplayer CE that didn't work so I removed it. Then I installed IOS70 & Priiloader and when I go to System Hacks it tells me none are installed.
At the moment I have set the Autoboot to System Menu and that works fine, so I don't even notice Priiloader.
MplayerCE works great with SMB and HDD.
Config USB Loader works great with Seagate 500gb HDD
SSBB and NSMB and all other games no problems.
BUT I would love to sort out Priiloader without F***ing it all up.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
This section is for bricked wii's. Yours is not bricked
This tread is about preloader bricks, your preloader is fine.
It should be posted in the guide you followed, or in a new thread in general homebrew/hack issues.
Now to fix your trouble, extract 4.2e-hacks.zip to the root of your sd-card. It should load the hacks into your nand. Select the one you want. I suggest disk and system update blocks, and remove disk diag check. If it does not work you may need to use another card.
Thanks a million!!! my wii works again!!
I'm having a the same problem that other people have had with priiloader but I don't know how to solve it. I used the 3.0-4.1 guide and everything worked fine but I hit a button in my usbgx forwarder and I'm now not able to access my system menu.
I have a 4.0U and didn't update it with the firmware updater so the solution that mauifrog recommends eludes me, as I am unable to update the system menu. Is there a way to just restart the whole process and install a new system menu? Priiloader won't let me exit to the system menu, I can just boot things like HBC.
Also, I did not make a backup of my NAND, so I have nothing to go back to.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
I feel a little foolish for posting, since I was eventually able to unbrick my wii. I was not able to load the system menu. When I clicked on it in prii, it would blink and the prii screen would be there. I reinstalled the 3.0-4.1 guide but now I am unable to load any usb loader channels or forwarders via HBC. The channels just have a black screen when I click start. the forwarder displays code and freezes. This is better than a bricked wii and I realize that this isn't the correct forum for this problem but maybe someone can recommend a fix for this? Maybe there is just a setting in priiloader that i need to change? I enabled the 8 or so hacks that came with whatever file I downloaded. I am now running 4.1U
I upgraded priiloader from 0.2 to 0.2b trying to get the autoboot for usbloader to work and now my wii wont do anything but flicker when i turn it on. Totally Bricked?
After the priiloader update it had a stack dump. now just it just loads up to black screen, priiloader wont load even with the reset button.
Hello, I did what your guide says and i loaded the wad manager from the preloader. When i go into the wad manager and try to install ios 249 it has a error message. I try to restart the wii but it just goes back to the wad manager. The error message says something like ception (ds1) occured! a whole bunch of numbers then it says ode DUMP:0051dc 70801 BAC
it continues on from that. What should i do to fix this problem.
The reason that it got this way was because, I wanted to clean my wii and i restored it. Then it wont let me go to the system menu and pre loader would just come up
sure hope I am asking for help in the correct place - I am sorry in advance if not.
I had a newer 4.2u that I soft modded...all went perfect and after the priiloader, it goes directly to the priiloader v0.1 (r15) screen and no system menu. when I select it, I get no error, but it will not go to it. homebrew and bootmii work fine. any suggestions fellas?
please disregard - 4.2 wiisystemmenu wad got me back to normal...WHEW!
