4.1U update problem
Hello, i recently updated my wii from 4.0 to 4.1U without thinking of the consequences and now when i turn it on preloader .29 wont load, and my system menu hacks wont work such as health screen skip. worst of all my backups wont boot from the disk channel anymore. is there any way of downgrading yet? any help is appreciated.
whenever you upgrade/downgrade your system FW, preloader and bootmii(ios) is removed, and must be reinstalled. you need t oalso reinstall any cios because that is also removed on update. what did you use to boot backups from disk channel? cioscorp if it was used also needs to be reinstalled.
update from 3.2 to 4.0 official from nintendo did NOT remove any cIOS, i can personally confirm this, it literally did not affect anything on my wii, but i do not use cioscorp or softmii...and i did not have preloader when i upgraded, but now i do, and yes i understand why that would be erased
I was going to ask how you updated to 4.1 since it was only Japan, but just looked at Index of /wiimpersonator/reports and the SystemMenu was indeed updated on the 16th of July for USA and Europe regions - can anyone confirm this change makes the menu 4.1?
It will be interesting to see if 4.1 breaks anything. Reports were that 4.1J didn't.
edit: USA went to v449, EUR went to v450.

This is exactly what i was scared of, i avoided that update like a plague until further testing has been done to prove that its safe. Plus i dont feel like reinstalling everything again so ill keep it at v4.0 for as long as i can.

I realized Preloader had been removed, so I reinstalled Preloader v0.29 but I can't install the "hacks.ini"
Its says "hacks for your systemmenu version (v450) were not found".
Anybody have these hacks for the new systemmenu(v450)?
Is there anything else I need to reinstall?
**Decided to downgrade to 3.2E with "New 3.1-3.4 Downgrade-Preloader-Gamma" tutorial for now.

those hacks you used were from a different sysmenu. NEVER use ones from a different sysmenu.
cool so preloader does at least install on this system menu? i thought it should as it uses the same ios 60 as 4.0 does...thats cool, guess i just gotta wait for hacks...if i have the move disc channel hack activated and i moved it to the last page, will this affect the update?
i fixed it
i used any region changer and downgraded to 3.2 then updated to 4.0 and reinstalled my stuff. i see no reason to update anyways
I have confirmation that Homebrew channel successfully works on 4.1U. That is all I have currently (really new ), but I know it works fine.
