You first have to have your wii hacked before you install preloader. You cant just take a virgin wii and install preloader. It wont work. And you said that you bricked it the first time and unbricked it. Well if you did have it hacked and had HBC and all the goodies installed, then when you unbricked it, you would have lost all that stuff meaning you would have to first install all that stuff first and then install preloader. When did you purchase your console and did it come with 3.2U firmware on it at that time?
