Blocking Updates (and getting my Wii up to date)
My Wii is a softmod, Twilight hack, at 3.2E. I did it over a year ago and never really updated since. I can use Gecko to play games, the latest being Super Mario Wii. Everything works fine.
My issue is that when I put games in, the disc loader wants to system update. I know better but I'm afraid my roommates friends my update and screw it up. Can I shut that channel down or block updates? What and how does BootMii work and where do I get it?
Like I said, I haven't updated in forever. My homebrew channel will not update itself. The only updates I've done is the ISO to ISO60. What should I do to get up to speed?
preloader can block disc updates
Ok. Well to make it simple I'm using the newbie tutorial to install everything. I did really well and got all the way to step 5a when I couldn't get Preloader to install (the whole point of this thread!). What I think happened was after I installed everything in step 3, I ended up with an upside down HBC. I did a clean install of IOS36 which fixed the upside down but made it impossible to install Preloader. I ran thru step 3 again, got Preloader on, but it would not go to the system menu. I did a clean install of sys menu 4.1 which erased Preloader and I couldn't get it back. huff huff...
All that to say, I bootmii2 and did a clean install and am working on step 4 at the moment, without trying to fix the upside down thing until I'm completely done with step 5. We'll see if it works this time. Wish me luck.
You must install patchedIOS60 before installation of preloader. The HBC being upside down is an easier fix than what you did, alls that needed to be done was to re-install HBC.
I got it working. I don't think the upside down HBC was the big issue at all. I think it was that I had reinstalled v4.1U with a corrupt or incorrect file. I used NUSD to create a v4.1U and loaded it thru the WAD manager after getting Priiloader on. Then I reinstalled Priiloader. Worked like a charm!
