    My wii (PRE-LU64+) was hacked with system menu 3.2 w/ preloader 0.28 and starfall hacks installed (SoftMii2.1.1). I updated to 4.1 through wanin's 4.1 updater. Then I decided to follow an up to date guide to install a new cIOS. I followed the wrong guide because my wii only would boot to a black screen OR a frozen distorted screen. The last things I did was run the IOS downgrader and install cIOSCorp 3.3 (Never cIOSCorp again although I don't know if that was the problem) I looked around the forums and then tried to reinstall the system menu. I installed 3.2 wad (through preloader) forgetting that I updated to 4.1, the crazy thing is it booted right into the system menu 3.2 and ran through setup as if it was the first time. So after it loads I reboot the Wii, it boots back into 4.1 automatically and all my channels are still there! (i then remembered i had updated to 4.1). Nothing boots! just goes to a black screen. Even when I boot into preloader 0.28 and try to load a file i get a black screen. WAD MANAGER WILL RUN through preloader but will only function when I tell it use IOS36 instead of IOS249 (FREEZES if i choose IOS249).

    ANY Help or input is greatly appreciated!

    try and load AnyRegionChanger M5 from Preloader, or HBC if you can get into that.

    and let it reinstall a totally fresh 3.2U.

    then start from there.

    I attempted to boot anyregion changer from preloader and bannerbomb as homebrew channel only boots to a distorted frozen hbc. It boots to a black screen I can no longer start wad manager either. I can use the system menu 4.1 but cant load anything - just black screen or distorted display. What can I do to recover this wii? [​IMG]

    I changed preloader to boot from ios60 and i now can access the homebrew channel from the system menu. I NEED to get anyregionchanger running so i can go back to 3.2 but it freezes everytime i try to start it from the hbc, bannerbomb and preloader! ANY ADVICE?

    thanks for the link. I downloaded cIOS downgrader 1.2 but it won't boot from hbc or preloader. System menu and HBC are the only things I can boot. I'm only getting a black screen from hbc and preloader just sits at the Loading... text. Can't get into wad manager to reinstall any IOS's. How can I re-install anything to fix this? Thanks for all your help [​IMG]

    Possibly the autoboot disc would help?

    I´ve read somewhere here that there is a autobootdisc which boots wad manager or some.
