    I was able to hack my "no vulnerable IOS" wii. apparently i had installed an older version of Priiloader and so i updated to a newer version because it was not reading the hacks.ini file. after i updated priiloader, i was able to view those hacks and i basically enabled all of it. once i saved and got back to the main screen of Priiloader, i accidently hit "a" and selected the top option, which is "system--something" and it went into a black screen with "4.2USA" at the bottom right corner. now it's stuck at that screen. i can't reset or anything. i've unplugged the Wii and still got that black screen with "4.2USA". so is it bricked? i've only read that when it is bricked, it's just a black screen with nothing showing. if it is not bricked, anyone knows how to fix it?

    Nah, that's not a brick. That's the so-called "recovery menu." Hold reset while booting to get back into Preloader and disable the hack that's forcing you to boot into that menu.

    When the Wii just starts up, hold down RESET. In Priiloader, disable the Recovery Menu (or whatever) hack.

    You have just enabled all Preloader hacks, without knowing what they do [​IMG]

    Like the people above stated, go to preloader by holding reset at boot, then go to System menu Hacks.

    The one you must disable is "Disc Autostart" and/or "Autoboot Game"

    Next time, read the descriptions of the hacks you enable: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Preloader/hacks [​IMG]

    Hi There, I experienced the same problem. But for some reason nothing happens when I hold reset.
    Should there be a disc in the wii ??
