Wii Remotes Won't Sync with Preloader 0.29
So I let a friend borrow my two Wiimotes. Naturally he had to sync them up to his Wii. Well now I have them back and I can't get them to sync with my Wii. I'm using a softmodded Wii running IOS v60, Systemmenu v440 and Preloader 0.29.
When I turn on my Wii I get the Preloader screen. Always have actually since I softmodded it. I usually press System Menu and get the normal Wii system menu. Obviously I can't do that at the moment as my Wiimotes aren't working. I've made sure I'm using fresh batteries and even tried the standard "press the red SYNC button on the front of the Wii for 15 seconds, then press the red button by the battery compartment. The Wii just flashes all four blue lights for a few seconds and goes off. None of them ever stay lit. Tried both Wiimotes with no luck.
So basically it seems like I'm SOL unless I get a hold of a Gamecube controller correct? And even then there's no assurance the GC controller will work either.
