I have a white pal wii which was on 4.3e now having followed the tutorial i think is 4.1e going of my wii settings page. The problem that i am having is that when i go into priiloadeder, and select the autoboot option to an installed file. Once i return to the priiloader screen and click on installed file. I get the following error message:
Error autobooting file, try reinstalling!
Could not open file!
System Menu v54450
anyone know how to fix this, thank you
You have to install the file with priiloader first, then set it to autoboot the file.Look at the Priiloader guide if you need more help.

You should be able to load most apps from the load/install by pressing 1, but you will not be able to autoboot everything. That error suggests the the file was not found or something, I don't know. When you install a file into priiloader you are only installing the boot.dol/elf, but perhaps that files needs other files, etc, it might not work. So if you wish to autoboot from priiloader you should autoboot a forwarder that loads your sd/usb, a forwarder that is made to be compatible with autobooting from priiloader. Hope that helps, what are you installing into priiloaders autoboot?

What is the correct way then ? thanks in advance
@ttehbey - You're right, there is some inconsistency there. I'll work on getting it cleared up. I believe that bannerbomb will work on 3.4, so follow the spoiler immediately after that says "3.0-4.1 Bannerbomb v1" You'll get everything you need & @ the end you'll be on 4.1. With some of the older sysmenus (again I'm not sure what the cutoff is) bannerbomb won't work, so updating in the "usual" way is a last resort.
having done the tutorial through twice now, when i first followed the guide i had my games working through usb loader gx, then i added some games i think it was, usb loader gx said "Error!, usb device not found" but neogamma and usb configurator loader still work, i have tried various wbfs mangers and different titles and that hasnt helped. Reading threads on here i thought it would be best to just start over again, but having done that i am still out of luck. I have done everything said and have not missed anything out. Orignally my wii was a 4.3e then after this tutorial its been downgraded to 4.1e. Also to note inbetween bootmii would not work (i think i must have missed out the bit about preparing the card) but having done the turorial again doing everything properly i am still need of guidance on getting Usb Loader Gx to work, thank you
Try deleting the config file for gx and let it create a new one.
Sent with WiiHacks app, that should explain any typos 8-p
Aargh, it's all gone horribly wrong ;)
I used MMM to install the wads from CIOS and the App-pack v3b, which went OK but USB GX Loader stopped working. In my attempts to fix it, I went to the system menu and clicked on Install File and WAD Manager and after that when I clicked on Installed File it loaded WAD Manager and also when I booted the Wii. So I went back to System and clicked on Install File and USB GX Loader (those were the only two I had there) but clicking on Installed File just hung on a white screen and so did booting the Wii. I changed the boot to Default (i.e. not Installed File) and that got me booting again and I tried WiiFlow which worked and USB GX Loader works from the Homebrew Channel. Now if I go to System and click on Install File, it just crashes the Wii to a black screen with diagnostic text!
I'd be grateful if someone could help me get it booting back to USB GX Loader off the USB HDD and fix whatever's making Install File crash the Wii.
EDIT: No worries, I managed to get it working again by installing USB GX Loader WAD again and that seems to have fixed the problem where it was crashing when selecting Install File in Priloader :)
I was following a mod guid on youtube, and everything seemed to work fine but when i installed wads not all installed and i thought it would be fine and it aperently didnt brick but i couldnt install priiloader and all the channels were on the home screen, but the usb loader gives me a black screen and the wiimote turnes off, but the dvdr channel works. for the wii games but not burned games idk why? and i checked the wii and it said it was compatable.
what can i do?:(
