    So i had my wii on 3.2E softmodded, i wanted to update to 4.2E so i went to wii options and "format wii memory", thinking it would be the best way to update it to 4.2E by using hackmii after formatting wii memory, WRONG...

    it asked me to reboot, but it rebooted into preloader, because it can't find a system menu ticket or something like that, HBC doesn't load either because it was erased...

    now preloader gives an error "exception (DSI) occured" when i try to launch any .dol or .elf to try and fix it,

    i read somewhere that i could fix it by reinstalling preloader, tried to load it's dol, it loads but freezes on the intro screen, this happens with 0.28 dol and 0.29 dol.

    my next try will be wii backup disk 1.31 or the universal unbrick disk v2, but i think it won't work [​IMG]

    can anyone please give me some hints?

    no, that shows the same DSI error.

    but i tried DOP-Mii v13 that you suggested and it loads up normally (the version i tried before was another one wiibre edition or something like that), so what can i do with DOP-Mii? is it safe to install System Menu-NUS-v482.wad? it's system menu 4.2E wad, i guess it will work right?

    i just don't want to end up without system menu and without preloader, that would make my hopes fade away

    Stop now!
    Reinstalling SM will remove preloader.

    Sounds good. Go to IOS, MIOS, BC and Reinstall IOS70 v6174 without patches and System Menu 4.2E then.

    what you need to do is to install the IOS58 and reinstall HBC (if possible)...!!

    I think we need some good recovery option first. Bootmii@boot2 for example and working HBC. Then touch SM.

    For good start find all applications which You can run from priiloader.
    DOP-Mii is good start.
    Try syscheck v1.6.2, 1.6.3, 2.0.0 or 2.0.1 and post report there.
    Are You able to run MMM?

    Sure
    Try these versions of MMM and tell if anyone works.

    We need ability to reload clean IOS and launch elf/dol of HBC installer.

    only 13.2 is available, it doesn't work

    isn't DOP-Mii helpful to reload clean IOS's?

    12.5 (DSI error)
    12.7 (DSI error)
    12.8 (black screen)
    13.1 (black screen)
    13.2 (black screen & drive blue led lights up)

    couldn't find any other versions

    so if i reinstall the IOS's with DOP-Mii and then launch hackmii from preloader, wouldn't it work as if i were running from MMM app launcher?
