    Pre-Loader Only

    I have a friend who has had a Wii soft modded for 6 months or more. I don't know if her son tried to load something in the HBC or what but now all of a sudden it boots up to the Pre-Loader 0.25 screen and stops. Doesn't matter if the SD card is in the system or not.

    I've played with all the boot settings, reloaded both the boot.dol files, changed the boot menu, reloaded the HBC several times and still it just boots to the pre-loader.

    Is it full-bricked or semi-bricked? Wondering what to do now if it is possible to salvage the system??

    Thanks for the help,
    Mike

    If you can get into homebrew, try running an app called cIOS Downgrader and select the region of the wii and the firmware you wish to install. For example if you have a NTSC-U wii and want it on 3.2 do not select 3.2j, 3.2e but 3.2u.

    Can't get their. All I have is a text based screen that says Pre-Loader 0.25 at the bottom and 3 menu options. I can't get the graphical screen up.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    May I ask what are the three options that you are seeing?

    Would he need to use a GC controller to navigate?
