    This is the problem that I was trying to address with you..

    bricked wii ( plz help
    i turn the wii on, it goes directly to the preloader menu.

    But if i try to launch the systemmenu, it gives this message:

    - ERROR AUTOBOOTING SYSTEMMENU COULD NOT OPEN BOOT FILE.
    If you want to go to FAILTUBE and make things worse then go ahead. I'm not sure if this is a Preloader brick or not but either way if you follow this guide here then it will help you reinstall System Menu 4.1, the required system IOS and install Priiloader.


    For anyone looking at this thread before a Moderator removes the FAILTUBE link, be warned it is a FAIL!!!! DO NOT FOLLOW IT!!!

    Just install priiloader. It will take the place of preloader and fix your issues. Your system menu isn't compatible with preloader.

    Install patched system menu IOS first. If you don't know what this is just ask. If you are on system menu 4.1 as it looks like you are based on your first post it is IOS60.

    When replacing prEloader with prIIloader you should always reinstall the system menu to remove preloader first. Just follow the guide linked above by krafter.

    Us hm....

    Ok, I remember doing this a few years ago with my old wii that is long gone. It was 4.2. I don't really remember what I did, but I think I got some wii system files on my sd card and pressed some button on preloader to make it work. I don't really remember, but I know I watched a video on youtube. Just check the comments before you try any video with hacking or downloading because the content may be rouge...

    Ignore the advice above. You know it's bad when the user says, " I got some wii system files on my sd card and pressed some button " Every thing you want to do to your Wii can be found here on this site. No need to follow FAILTUBE videos.

    Thanks for pointing this out, Krafter --- the post you quoted has been moderated (removed from the eyes of regular users) as it's a first-class fail. I left your reply in, quoting it however as a warning to others (of more what not to do than what to do).
