    Did you make a nand backup with bootmii? You need to fix you issue with preloader on 3.1u before you can upgrade. You could just use your nand backup (if you have one), or figure out which ios 30 to install and then reinstall 3.1u- after that you would start on step 4 and do the whole thing completely to the end.

    I did the nand backup in step 2.
    Can this help me at all? to restore back before I screwed up?

    but in step 2 he says "It is not recommended to restore your NAND if you have Bootmii installed as an IOS."

    and I believe mine installed as an IOS? Not sure if this is a problem

    OK Mauifrog, I think we posted at the same time.

    OK so take my Nand backup, SD back to chip install right? That should fix everything and than start again like you said from step 4?
    Please let me know.

    This should put me back on track?
    Thanks

    You should have installed it as boot2 your wii should support that as it is a 3.1u. Put the bootmii files back on your sd card and turn on the wii, see if bootmii loads.

    Otherwise reinstall your ios 30 and system menu 3.1u. Or just wait for better ideas.

    so don't do my nand since it's an IOS?
    If I do the Ios 30 install back how do I do it?

    download it on an sd card than how do I load it back on the wii?
    Please explain it step by step if you can.
    Thanks!

    Download these two files

    IOS30-64-v1039.wad
    System Menu-NUS-v257.wad


    Save the wad files to your sd card's wad folder

    sd-card:/wad

    Put the sd-card into your wii
    Turn the wii on
    Load Homebrew Channel
    Launch wadmanager

    Install IOS30-64-v1039.wad 1st
    Install System Menu-NUS-v257.wad 2nd

    This will remove preloader

    Proceed to New 3.1-4.1 Softmod for ANY Wii

    Start on Step #4, read the guide a few times and be sure to follow every step in the proper order until you have completed all of step #5, repeat any portion previously done.

    If you installed bootmii as ios, run the hackmii installer- if it says bootmii can be installed as boot2, uninstall bootmii ios and reinstall bootmii as boot2.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for all help esp. Mauifrog
    I haven't had time this weekend to mess with the wii so before I
    do I again a couple questions if you can help or anyone please.

    Everything turns on and works as it did before I mod it last week.
    It still at 3.1U and only diffrence is has homebrew on it (need
    sd card to see the cios38r14 installer, firware updater 4.1, preloader,
    trucha bug restore, and wad manager) I also on my list of channels have neogammar7.

    Should I start from the begining of the soft mod again? So I can load it as a boot2 instead of IoS?

    My goal is to update my wii to 4.1 so I can use the shop channel.

    Is the only thing I'v really done on my wii right now is added homebrew and neogammar7? Do I need to delete these 1st as to start the softmode from start first? If I do need to earse homebrew and neogamma 1st do I do it by formatting my wii?
    Thanks'
    for any help
