I had an LU53 and couldn't get Preloader installed, so I returned it and got an LU63 since I have preloader on my other LU63. I get the same error, it's unreadable (screen is small) says something about "IOS 3 somthing bug fix", screen goes back to HBC. I don't know why I had no problems on my first hack on my first Wii, but now I am unable to do it and am about to give up. I have IOS16, CIOS249 and CIOS36 installed (it was part of the bath installer hack package I used), could that be a problem? Am I missing something? I also installed IOS60/61 for Wii Shop Channel Update (only after preloader failed) didn't do anything to help preloader. Since both those systems seem to be newer then my original (since mine came w/ 3.3. fw) I guess it could be a hardware issue, but hoping it's something else? I am guessing that IOS error is looking for something? The system came w/ 3.4 and I downgraded to 3.2 (haven't tried upgrading to 4.0 yet as I am afraid nothing will work). I guess I could wipe the system clean, bannerbomb and upgrade to 4.0 and start from there...but prefer to stay on 3.
