    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 i try to run the homebrew channel it gives me other error:

    - ERROR AUTOBOOTING HBC. MAYBE TITLE NOT INSTALLED?

    In the screen theres also some info:

    IOS v30 (i dont remember if this was the right number)
    Systemmenu v.354
    Preloader v0.29

    ive tried this method

    Put wadmanagers boot.dol onto the root of your sd:\
    Download system menu v354 (3.3e)
    Download ios30-v2576
    Put these two wads in sd:\wads
    Hold reset and boot your wii, preloader should start
    Click load/install
    Then load boot.dol
    Wadmanager should start, use ios36
    Install ios30
    then
    Install system menu
    Then
    Goto the 3.1-4.1 guide below
    Start at the begining and do all the steps
    Bring your wii up to 4.1 with priiloader installed and bootmii as boot2 if possible.

    but as soon as i try to use ios36 and mount my sd storage is gives me this

    Mounting device, please wait... ok!
    retrieving file list... error! (ret = -1)

    can some one please help

    What happens it you don't autoboot into Priiloader?

    -1:
    SD/USB Loader Error Hardware not recognized. Most likely have a cIOS installed incorrectly, out of date, or missing. Possibly formatted the SD card or USB incorrectly, is unsupported, or not enough space.
    -1:
    Wad Install Error Most likely have a cIOS installed incorrectly, out of date, or missing. If a file was needed, then it was not in the correct folder. If you are using cios38rev14 installer, put ios38-64-3610.wad file in the root of the SD card. Each programm needs its files in specific folders, so pay attention to that. Can also be a bad wad or not enough space on the Wii. Possibly formatted the SD card incorrectly.

    The card should be formated to FAT32. Don't worry about the cIOS being on your card. That is only if you are having issues installing it using the installer which you are not doing right now. Since you have Preloader installed you are obviously softmoded already.

    Before you do anything why don't you disable auto booting into Preloader and see what happens.

    To be honest, I'm not exactly sure because I use "Priiloader" and not "Priiloader" but it should be similar. Go into settings and poke around. You should see something referring to Auto boot and Return To. Change Auto boot to System Menu.

    Keep in mind, lol, I am winging what I am telling you here. I am not in front of my wii and can't confirm. You will just have to poke around if I'm wrong.

    Listen buddy, I may or may not be able to help you but lets find out by you doing what I am asking you to try. I asked you to disable Preloader Auto Boot to see what happens. This will tell us weather or not your System Menu is corrupt or weather it's a problem with Preloader. So again, disable Auto Boot and see what happens.

    Assuming that you set it to boot to the System Menu, restart your wii and see whats happens.
