I'm on Priiloader v.0.8.2 (along with IOS v80 + System Menu v513) and can't seem to update through the "Check for Update" option. It prompts me with an error when it's initializing my wifi. I ran a connection test before going to Priiloader. I also can't seem to open "System Menu Hacks", as it gives me the following issues:

tax error : expected 'version' before 'n' @ line 130
Can't find fat:/apps/priiloader/hacks_hash.ini
Can't find hacks_hash.ini on NAND

I have the hacks_hash.ini on my SD card where it's supposed to be. Though I'm unsure about the NAND issue. I tried finding answers myself to fix all this but it all led me straight to dead-ends...except to use ModMii? I'm pretty confused with all that.

Let me know if I'm missing any other important information.

Have u tried just using modmii?
No. My initial thought was that it was some starter pack for softmodding the Wii, including all the steps for homebrew, backup loaders, etc. I softmodded my Wii last year through wii.guide and seem to be having problems as of now. If I were to use ModMii, where would I go from here?

The only things I had inserted was the SD card and a GameCube Memory Card. I took the MC out and the same errors still showed up.

To start using modmii, just grab it, install it, and run the first/main wizard, answer the Q's as if the console were a virgin even if it's not, it's okay to repeat steps

But yeah, just reinstalling priiloader with the correct hacks_hash files should resolve the issue

Got it working again! Thank you for your help! I had no idea that it was okay to overwrite pre-existing files on the NAND. Guess I'll learn for next time something goes up. :yay:
