    I need some Advice.
    I bricked my wii previously and send in for repair.
    After I got back my wii, (Changed mainboard and some components), my wii is now on 4.1U and with Gecko OS installed as channel. I dun see any HBC and I hold reset and switch on my wii, I can see the preloader menu.
    Can I use the USB loader?

    At this point there is absolutely NOTHING which can permanently prevent you from using a USB loader.

    First reinstall the HBC and Bootmii/Boot2 if you can.

    of course you need HBC to run gecko and preloader installer.
    start with this: http://sites.google.com/site/completesg/ha...uide/the-basics
    then this: http://sites.google.com/site/completesg/hacking-guide/trucha
    after this you have a fully hacked 4.1.
    select what backup loader you want: http://sites.google.com/site/completesg/backup-launchers

    I checked my Wii Preloader Menu which as follow:
    IOS V60, SystemMenu V449, Preloader v.30.
    Under the main home screen, a Gecko OS 1.9.3 channel is installed.
    No HBC, Bootmi installed.
    In this case how they install Gecko. I had checked with the repairman and he informed no modchip and only softmod...

    you can use bannerbomb to launch homebrew.

    most likely they just erased it after they were done though.

    where did you get it repaired?

    I won't call it starting from scratch though. Just these steps:
    1. Run bannerbomb and install HBC and Bootmii (hopefully Boot2).
    2. Install Cios249 Rev14 and/or Hermes 222/223.
    3. Make a nand backup.
    5. Copy any apps you want to run to SD card.

    i think that can be done in lesss than 15 minutes eh? (only the NAND backup will take awhile).

    Can someone advice me what I should start off with.
    After I enter to Preloader menu,
    I have the following options:
    System Menu
    Homebrew Channel ->> Error booting HBC. maybe title not installed?
    BootMii IOS ->> Could not find the required BootMii startup files neither the elf or binary were found on the SD! ->>

    Installed File ->> I entered Wad Manager v1.5 MOD menu
    Load / Install File
    System Menu Hacks
    Setting

    I need to backup NAND which I previously did not do so resulted my Full Brick.
    I want to play game using USB loader.
    What should i do now?
