If you updated and then the Homebrew Channel vanished, the "someone" that got rid of it (and Preloader) was System Menu 4.2. (One of the many spectacular reasons that one should not blindly update.)

Did you make sure you're using the correct Bannerbomb (which has instructions that are different from the old variant) and the latest Hackmii installer?

Are you sure you're even trying to access Preloader correctly? I believe it's hold reset while powering on....
But yeah, updating when you have a modified Wii is blasphemy - you're going to Wii hacking hell for that one.

on a related note to the topic, what would be the reason that disc loading (ie retail) will not load via disc channel... not sure why myself... before an update it worked fine, then after, nothing...
anyone got anything to offer on this note?

for some reason the wifi not working right. I feel if i can get a wad manager to install a new system menu. or find a way to boot into preloader and undo the disk updates and such that i have set.. About the Retail disk when I incert it shows in ther disk channel but when i hit start it goes to a black screen. I was setting my disk channel to play my orginial backups.. so it could beat fault.. so still looking for a workaround.

just use something like anyregion changer to install 3.2 and try again from there... perhaps? (ps: use bootmii)
similar problem for a friend, but wont actually see the game as inserted... it just asks to insert a disc... or that the disc is incorrect...

--EDIT:
DO NOT DO THIS; LUA64+... you YOU CAN NOT DOWNGRADE BELOEW 4.0

dont downgrade blindly as you will BRICK very easly your 3.2 menu ios30 is now a stub and wont work did you have bootmii installed as boot2 or ios and made a nand dump if you did, reinstall bootmii and use your nand dump to get you back to where you where

hold the reset after powering on the wii then preloader menu will be booted. about your problem, i am a bit confused on what you did before the problem occurred. why don't you start from the top and rehack your wii. http://sites.google.com/site/completesg/ha.../trucha-bug-4-2.

no. hbc to access.. wii connect24 wont work .. i just get a black screen. try to update nope it wont download anything.. maybe removeing battery will help off the consel. If i try to play a game throughl the disk channel screen goes black when it boots up. HELP only if I could get HBC back.. it would be easier..
